The Great Emptiness, and the ever-flowing Tao

excerpted from the notebooks of Jack Haas

 

If you are the great emptiness, or if you have come to bring the great emptiness, you must renounce everything which precludes the Great Emptiness, or you must learn to embody the Great Emptiness, while being 'in and of' the world which you also are, without losing the Infinite Space. This is the lesson of the Bhagavad Gita.

 

Pure Mind is formless emptiness. Pure matter is formless substance. Together they create the mercurial whole Self- quicksilver.

 

The Great Emptiness softens the hardness of matter, releasing the Spirit from the stone, and creating the fluid, flexing, living Tao Grail. The Goddess awoken.

 

Emptiness is the Kingdom of the Tao te Ching.

Love and fearlessness.

 

As Buddha, I began with what I AM, and radiated all into Buddhahood from there.

 

Be Being, the effortless, eternal Self.

 

In order to understand the language of clouds, it is necessary to be one with the clouds. To be cloud. Intimate cloudness. And also to be everything else.

 

The Tao, I AM, is a supple stillness. An eternal reed in a windy life. A rock in the river. Both rock and river. I... AM.

 

Becoming the clouds.

Being the sky.

Both.

One.

 

I am the one infinite water.

Everflowing.

Not still.

And yet unmoving.
