We know that EVERYTHING IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE is made of energy, and energy can only be transformed, not destroyed. Energy always remains in one form
The everything in the entire universe is energy, it is all there is. And that energy is formed as what is happening presently. This is it - all of
it now, presently, in one lump. One lump. This is the current configuration.
That one lump is separated out into many things by the minding, the labeling, the naming. The one thing is not any thing in paricular until words and
ideas are put on it.
This here presently is not a thing. But all 'things' come out of it (from naming). The words can decieve one into believing there is more than there
is. It is nice to play but when the words build more than one can cope with, when they build a big, bad scary world it can be overwhelming. It can
be a relief to know that it only appears to exist in the dream world in mind, made of wisps of thought, appearing in this space of now. What is real
is the space that the wisps of thought appear within. The space is aware of what appears in it. That space seems to produce and see what it
produces. That space is often overlooked. The finding of the space or the no thingness is what is longed for.
I like this the first chapter of the tao te ching.
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.
