Excerpt About Being / Nonbeing
Recognizing the Non-Beingness of BeingRecognizing the non-beingness of being does not lead to the disappearance of the individual soul; it leads to understanding that the individual soul doesn’t exist as we usually think it does. Then we discover that emptiness of being is true not just about the individual self, but it is true about the perceptions of the individual self. In other words, all that we perceive can be liberated from the ordinary conception of existence as a solid something that is really there. We plaster our beliefs and our projections over all manifest forms, all the world, all the universe that we see. And when the world is free from our ideas about it, we see it in its beingness, we see that everything is a manifestation of beingness in its purity and presence and luminosity.
