The Scale of Suffering

Posted in Uncategorized by bigsleytheoaf on July 5, 2012

Staring into oblivion is its own work. The void is fruitful. That which emerges from it is essentially new. The void begets growth and transformation.

Suffering is nothing but the void’s yearning for selfhood – its desire to not just produce, but to be. It is impossible.

Every form is empty qua form. There is no internal essence or real substance to any “thing.”

Recent events have stolen my heart from the void. I am thus freed, yet I burn. Every truth is excruciating. The fact of my needing to know any particular thing is overwhelming. Cat is here and the tension of that fact – that in the 14.5+ billion year history of the universe there is a small fluffy form which persists only momentarily, that came from nowhere and goes nowhere.

Everything is a weight – I can transcend or lift.
