The nothing, the nothing at all
at the source, is who you really are. A life lived running
from ie a life lived avoiding who you really are is
destined for difficulty and hardship from the get go, just like an
automobile, thinking it's a boat, would experience difficulty and
hardship crossing a lake.
Without a foundation of
nothing, without the nothing at
all at the source, it's not possible to truly
create. The very act of creation implies bringing
something forth out of nothing. If you're not coming from
nothing, all that's possible is to change something, or to
append to something, or maybe even to
swap something or to rearrange something.
But without coming from nothing, authentic creating is elusive, if
not outright impossible.
