Form / Emptiness – the belief in ones physical body, mind and senses as the fundamental base of ones existence. It is the illusional view and concept of individuality as construed and misunderstood by the I-ego-self.
“Form does not differ from emptiness; Emptiness does not differ from form. Form itself is emptiness; Emptiness itself is form. So too are feeling, cognition, formation, and consciousness.”
Form / Emptiness
Physical and self identity, and individuality, it is the fabric of ones cognitive universe, woven by the mind and ego, and like a flag, proclaiming its sovereignty.
But is this physical canvas truly reflective of ones identity and self, or is it merely a snapshot of the surface, whose truth, depth and mysteries are unsee-able by the mind and I-ego-self.
The foundation of ones physical world is composed of atoms. An atom is incredibly small — more than a million times smaller than the thickness of a human hair. From head to toe, and the world around us, atoms present the illusion of form and solidness.
Science tells us that the physical world is not as solid as it seems. Everything is made up of atoms, whose interiors are 99.999% empty of any measurable matter. The solidness that one feels is but the electromagnetic fields interacting.
As to mass, that is contained within the nucleus of the atom, made up of even more minute particles – protons, neutrons, and electrons. If one were to take and condense all of the nuclei of a human body, it would be smaller than a grain of salt.
“What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space. Particles are just schaumkommen (appearances).
One is not the body, for science tells us that it is 99.999% not here. One is also not the grain of salt that makes up our mass. The physicality of the self is but an illusion, a concept of the mind and senses as it interacts with reality.
Who you truly are is the 99.999% that is immeasurable. Your reality rests in the essence of that, the infinite space of be-ing.
“Many people are afraid to empty their minds lest they may plunge into the void. They do not know that their own mind IS the void.”
Who you think you are is but a flickering candle, who you truly are is a radiant sun.
Who you really are asks, “Can you, the measureless be-ing that you are, embrace your true Form / Emptiness?
