Why emptiness is liberating. London

February 25, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Public Talk.

Awakening to the fact of there being nothing frees us from the endless quest for something. Our problem is the seeming ‘thing-ness’ of the thing, our sense that we exist as some-thing in a world of many different things.

The reification which imputes a real and enduring substance to phenomena is a deluding mental process. When this process is not relied on as a means of generating meaning, the actuality of phenomena is seen to be unfolding revelation.

This revelation is the flow of experience, concrete and precise, each moment with its own unique specificity yet with no-thingness to grasp on to. Thus the anxious self can cease attempting to take refuge in illusory things and relax into the space of unfolding.
