“That is full; this is full. From fullness, fullness come out.
Taking fullness from fullness, what remains is fullness.”
Santipatha, Isha Upanishad
It seems to be that the experience of silence or source as nothingness is simply a phase. As what has been is lost, what remains may seem empty, the void. But as the perception refines and we surrender more deeply into wholeness, that emptiness is found to be fullness. Rich with a lively alertness that is the foundation of all reality and experience. Even when the world sleeps, it is awake to Itself.
The richness of becoming is beyond words to describe, beyond imagination to conceive. A simple thought springs forth an entire creation, rich with life and light.
Where is the emptiness? It cannot be found.
