Thanks to Me - Z
Getting to Zero
0 – nothing – nada – nil – You are perfectly nothing and perfectly all. The ZERO is a circle encompassing everything, yet it is transparent, empty, blank. Oh, the beautiful paradox of it all. When you can grasp the absolute truth that you are nothing but a speck on the nose of all time and space AND that you are the center of the Universe, at the same time, then you know who you are.
The following is a poem by Kabir, a Sufi mystic and holy man. For more poetry by Kabir: Kabir: Ecstatic Poems translated by Robert Bly.
The Fish in the Sea is not Thirsty
I said to the wanting-creature inside me:
What is this river you want to cross?
There are no travelers on the river-road, and no road.
Do you see anyone moving about on that bank, or resting?
There is no river at all, and no boat, and no boatman.
There is no towrope either, and no one to pull it.
There is no ground, no sky, no time, no bank, no ford!
And there is no body, and no mind!
Do you believe there is some place that will make the
soul less thirsty?
In that great absence you will find nothing.
Be strong then, and enter into your own body;
there you have a solid place for your feet.
Think about it carefully!
Don’t go off somewhere else!
Kabir says this: just throw away all thoughts of
and stand firm in that which you are.
