Nothingness

“Is it possible to achieve the state of nothingness in meditation?” The furrowed brow did not spell hope.

“I’d prefer to call it restful awareness – just being without expectations or action.”

“Why is nothingness so hyped?”

“The common method of cleansing negativity, de-addiction is to replace it with something else – thoughts or habits. It is an extension of the same theme, with the object of your affection being replaced. This method spells freedom – the freedom of being at Zero, and a choice to start again.”

    This is a state I wish I could achieve on a regular basis! Don Juan would tell Carlos (in the Castaneda books) to stop his internal dialogue. More difficult than it sounds but a very cool state.
    You’re right. It does boil down to choice in the end. And who doesn’t want the opportunity to start again 🙂
    Cool Six.
