What is emptiness?
Form is emptiness. This means that whatever shape, color, or contour a thing takes, it is inherently empty, an illusion, a composite of different angles, measurements, and shades to make up what we perceive to be relative to an ideal archetype of a thing.
Emptiness is the natural state of existence. A nothingness. An emptiness devoid of any real being, any real self. Without the sun or any other energy, life would be a nothingness, it would be empty.
Nirvana is the realization of this truth of reality. It is about letting go of the emotional attachments to physical and metaphysical realities. That's the truth. There is nothing more than this to know in life. Once you overcome the duality of life by realizing its inner emptiness, you can transcend all limitations and be reunited with your true Self, never to view life as perpetual, but eternal.
As a human knowing this truth, your normal senses still function regularly, but your mind is freed, able to contemplate new concepts, truths, and perspectives. Immediately you will start distancing yourself from others, as your new awakened state sees beyond the simple distinctions between left/right, good/evil duality. You'll have achieved "middle-way" vision, seeing beyond the extremities towards That Supreme Truth.
When a person dies, they become what they most wanted, what they most desired. Their soul reunites with the energy of their mind. When a being, enlightened and knowledgeable about the true state of existence, passes away, their mind is liberated of all things and they truly are free.
"Love in itself is profoundly divine, terribly divine.
"In ancient times, the cult was dedicated to love and to the woman, who reigned.
"They knew that the woman was the most grand thought of the Creator turned into flesh, blood, and life..."
- Samael Aun Weor
Sphere of Lilith
"Here we find those who abhor sex, for example, Monks, Anchorites, Mystics, Spiritualists, people from different Pseudo-esoteric organizations, etc. All types of Infrasexual people hate sex and consider themselves to be highly superior to those of normal sexuality. All of the taboos, restrictions, and prejudices that currently condition the lives of people of normal sexuality were firmly established by infrasexual people. Infrasexual people mortally hate the Arcanum A.Z.F. nevertheless, they give to themselves special credentials, and therefore, it is not difficult to find homosexuality within many convents and schools that are dedicated to spiritualistic or pseudo-esoteric studies. All of the crimes against nature are found in the Infrasexual Sphere of Lilith."

Forgive, I was just trying to get you to come out of the knowing ABOUT, to getting authentic about it, without negating the views and felt experience of others.
There used to be a guy around here called Michael Cecil, who was rather fanatical and fundamentalist himself, but I did like his view that the human being has lost something of his true nature, by becoming nothing but a combination of two aspects - the thinker, and the self.
I wanted to explore spirit.
