I understand in the now of the moment you and i will be the same experience if we are nothing, empty and receptive mirrors to what ever is.
This moment is not a thing, it is nothing. You are not a thing, you are nothing.
There is just nothing. Or 'darkness' as the Tao Te Ching suggests.
A 'thing' is a particular. A particular (a thing) is made out of the nothing, which is whole and complete. A 'thing' is just a label. Because you
were labelled a name, you believe you are separate from the whole. And in turn you label and name and use words which manufacture an unreal world.
This is whole and complete and always has been, it does not need making. The complete wholeness cannot ever be separated.
Tao Te Ching
Written by Lao-tzu
From a translation by S. Mitchell
The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.
The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.
