“There are healthy ways to fill the emptiness.”
Do you see the look on that girls face in the picture above?
Well I’m here to tell you that this picture went viral on Pinterest and that it’s simultaneously hurting the planet.
All my life I grew up hoping that in no way, shape or form that I would become empty. But guess what?
That’s why I was never aware of the present moment. And since there is only one ABSOLUTE freedom in existence and that is to be aware and to be one with existence which can only happen when you become aware of the present moment.
There is no way to become aware of the present moment. The only thing to be aware of is that what you are is the present moment, what you are IS the emptiness.
What I mean by emptiness is that you cannot experience THIS moment by thinking about it. The moment that you think about it you have missed it. The only way to experience what you are which is right now is to be free from thinking.
And this includes emotions as well. See emotions are your bodies reaction to your thoughts, if you allow your thoughts to dissolve, each individual thought itself to dissolve you become empty, and by becoming empty you become present.
By becoming empty free from thought, from emotion, the present moment has become aware of itself.
I would like to distinguish a few key differences however. Often times when you look at the vibration of words which is the ONLY significance of words when it comes to experiencing the peak of life, you will see that a lot of people use the term emptiness, a void within ourselves which is essentially a VERY deep insecurity.
But they are very different and the mix up and caused humanity a lot of suffering. The first thing to know is that a void within, or an insecurity is an insecure mind. It is an insecure way of looking at life.
Perhaps the self-image that you see in the mirror when you look within you don’t like something about the “self” or self-image that your mind has created as way of fitting into this world full of 7.5 billion people.
A self-image is relative to the next individual, because without somebody else we have no clue what self-image even is and perhaps not even have a perception to begin with.
“How do I fit into this world?” your mind asks, and that’s where your self-image is born.
But the deeper core of you, the REAL you which is this present moment is not based on relativity because within this moment the 7.5 billion people on this planet are all a part of. I am this moment, you are this moment and we the human race are this moment. So from that realization there is no relativity.
The point is all of your insecure thoughts usually stem not from the thinking itself but thought that thought can obtain us our freedom. It is that we are not aware of what we are which is this moment, what we are IS the emptiness.
The mind itself is insecurity because it creates all of problems, it creates time, it creates ego which is the identification with you are as your problems, as your thoughts. It creates identification with who you are as past, as future and what it makes you believe that there is ONLY salvation, ONLY freedom in the past, and in the future.
The mind itself does not know the present moment, because in the present moment the mind does not exist. Thinking does not exist.
So you see emptiness is not something we should be running from but be very aware of as our true nature. To confirm more of this read At The Core Of Your Being.
Emptiness is not insecurity is the direct opposite of both. Emptiness is how you directly experience this moment and where all freedom exists.
