After Thought #24

 

What is not here is just as important as what is here.  Life is a dance between what appears to be here and what appears to not be here.

You Are Here.

Without you, there would be nothing.   When nothing becomes something, there is the possibility for anything.  Even though you are here, there is a good chance that you have forgotten what is not here.  There is a good chance that you have forgotten the immeasurable potential of what is not here, and what could be here.

In that forgetfulness, the potential of nothing to become something appears to bound what is actually unbound.  What is here becomes more important, more valuable, and more sacred than what is not here.

When what is here becomes more important and more sacred than what is not here, there appears to be separation and struggle.  There is no separation between what appears to be not here and what appears to be here; emptiness becomes form, form becomes emptiness.  If emptiness is becoming form and form is becoming emptiness, then there is neither form nor emptiness.  Nothing and everything just are.

You are here and you are not here, simultaneously.

If you spent a little more time valuing what appears to be not here; becoming aware of what appears to be not here, your appreciation of what appears to be and what appears not to be would be elevated in gentle, unspoken ways.  What appears to be bound would also appear to become unbound.  You might glimpse for the first time, that what is here is also not here.

We appear to get stuck when we confuse and amplify, label and judge with distinction, what is here with what is not here; barriers appear to be created where there are none.  We try to explain with understanding and reasoning what appears to be here and what appears to not to be here.  We begin to imagine something is here when it is not; we begin to imagine something is not here when in fact it is.

There will always be an impulse of what is not here; to become what was, what is, and what will potentially be here. 

There will always be an impulse to Be.

We spend most of our life using time and attention to focus on what is here: we want more of what is already here, and we want what is already here, to remain here forever.

If we were to lend some of that attention to what appears to be not here, we would bridge the gap of our own misunderstanding, confusion and delusion.  We might reconcile the paradox of what appears to be here with what appears to not be here.  We might finally realize what appears to be here, is actually not here, and what appears to not be here, actually is here.  We might finally realize there is no here, not here.

What is not here is just as important as what is here.  Life is the dance between the two that are actually One.

You Are Here;

better said, you think you are here when you’re actually not.

You’re neither here, nor not here!
