It could also be there there is nothing that "is not" and that it's true that something cannot come from nothing, but that therefore instead, must
come from everything already always, as a variable of a supreme value whereby the manifest creation represents, not a capricious addition from
nothing, but an intelligent and intentional subtraction from
everything, as the absolute infinite formless potential out of which the
everything begot something in order so that this life experience as it is might be possible by anticipation and arising from an original intent.
Meaning in other words that everything was made by the father (first father of creation) for the son because of the love between the beloved and
beloved other without which there is no reason
for there to be a particularized something and not nothing at all or the one non-particularized
"thing" (absolute oneness) within which there is no possibility of a relationship or a shared mutual experience i.e.: very lonely, no friends.
The occurrence of life then isn't an absurd and meaningless occurrence, but has a reason and a purpose who's sake is love and the opportunity to
experience, enjoy and to share, and to be known and to know or be recognized while recognizing the other recognizing us recognizing them (our mutual
There is no reason therefore to dissolve ourselves in this so-called nothing that is everything, but instead every reason to be accepted and
reintegrated (forgiven absolutely) as we are, while also accepting others as we are accepted, loved, recognized, forgiven.
The dissolution of the self and the idea that everything is nothing at all, misses the point of life, imho.
"What does it profit a man to gain the whole world
but lose his own soul?"
This is only reasonable, while at the same time honoring ourselves and one another as we are, and that's fun and enjoyable, creative, playful,
humorous - a celebration even a triumph and a glory that we can all bask in and enjoy together.
- intimate, mutual, participatory, communion (togetherness). That's what it's all about.
It's the only thing that's worthwhile in the end, and it just so happens to be the only way to really have any fun and be happy, and joyful, even
passionate and freely and fully self expressed in self acceptance, but not in any sort of egotistical or self-centered or conceited sense.
"If I seek only my own glory then that is no glory at all!"
P.S. This wasn't "preaching" but basic reason and logic in perfect alignment with "Philosophy and Metaphysics", where in dealing with such things if
we get it right and "ring the bell" something of value has been shared among us and more fully grokked
and that too is what it's all about, because then we're sharing real substantial "food" for our mutual enjoyment.
In other words - please don't try to sell me nothing or even everything. Let us simply enjoy each other's company and the meal at hand, one bite at a
time, together and then there it is, a meal prepared for we ourselves from before the very foundation of the world!
