Excerpt About Being / Nonbeing

The Absence of What We Call Existence

This nonbeing becomes even more profound as we recognize that the emptiness of self reveals that the individual consciousness, this living presence, is inseparable from the absence of presence. It’s like the beingness of the living presence has an eternal partner that is inseparable from it—its nonbeingness. And when we recognize and understand emptiness as the nonbeingness of Being, as the absence of what we call existence, we discover the emptiness that liberates the dynamism of Being. We usually think that the individual consciousness is a solid something that exists in the same way that an object exists. When we recognize that this isn’t actually the case, the dynamism of reality is free to manifest in other ways.
