Essence is like absence of reality,
Just like absence of non-reality
Is the same essence anyhow.
Essence is what sunlight is
At the same time that moonlight is,
Both have light, both have shape,
Both have darkness, both are late:
Both are late because empty thereof,
Empty is light, empty is dark,
what’s difference between emptiness
of brightness and dark?
What’s the difference between absence
Of reality, joy, or meaning
In middle of bubble, as being same
As middle of man, non-bubble
Man is the same as man,
The same as no-man, the same
As Anyman, Everyman, Asima,
Man is nowhere till he knows
The essence of emptiness
is essence of gold
Cats arent kind
Kiddies anent sweet
The universe was neither born, nor maintained, nor dissolved; this is the plain truth. The basic screen of pure Being-Awareness- Stillness devoid of all the moving shadow pictures of name and form of the universe is the sole, eternal Existance.
(Chapter 2 Verse 33)
The universe of name and form, the embodied creatures and their creator, mind, desire, Karma (action) and misery and everything other than the Self are merely thought formations projected by the power of the Self on its screen – Self.
(Ch. 5, v.25)
– Ribu Gita
Yet everything is perfect,
Because it is empty,
Because it is perfect
Because it’s not even happening.
