The void within When you are empty within , when I say empty , I don’t mean thoughtless , I don’t mean sad , but neither do I mean happy.
When I say empty , I don’t mean peaceful but neither do I mean chaotic.
When a certain emptiness is caused due to your nature , due to self nature , that emptiness becomes a part of eternity.
Once that emptiness is created , whether a Christ exists or not , whether you are good or not , whether that man is evil or not , whether this is wrong or not , all of these contradictions will begin to disappear.
This existence is empty within because it doesn’t have any contradictions, no prejudices.
Do you see this life being bias towards the rich? Do you find it favoring the rich? Today , there are some religious leaders saying how the rich are suffering for they have done so and so because their karma and so on , all this bullshit , if analyzed , it will be hysterical. Life is the same for everyone , it is non bias , it is empty , it is beautiful for everyone.
If you perceive the creator in any form , you will be deceived in some way or the other because then you cannot be empty as such. Your mind will deceive you , it will show you the entities what you most desire , but it will not show you what is.
What is is more important than what you desire , if you believe in shiva , it will show you shiva , if you believe in a kali , it will show you that. Who knows? You may find Jesus sitting next to you!
If you start believing that there is a soul inside of you, your ego will hide itself being it. You will do charity, good things, social service which supposedly “cleanses and purifies your soul” when in reality , just increases the ego hidden behind it , thus don’t believe something you haven’t experienced , especially the something like the soul.
However, it is quite paradoxical as once you enter the space of pure emptiness , you will experience everything as well as nothing.
You have learnt that everything and nothing are opposites to each other , but what if they weren’t?
If you say god is alive or you say god is life , it is the same thing isn’t it? If god is life then who is death? If life belongs to your god , then even death should.
If there is a devil then who created him? God? Some religions believe that one of the gods went wrong , they became the devil? Hysterical isn’t it?
God was wrong then , for a moment one would believe that god is always correct but what if he went wrong? If he went wrong and created something as terrible as the devil , isn’t there the possibility that he must have done other wrong things too?
God cannot exist without the devil. You will not like a movie without the villain , it is entertaining , it captures the attention of the audience obviously.
You need to understand the difference between the absence of experience and the experience of absentness
