No-Thing Lasts Forever

All of creation can be classified in two categories. In one category; you have things of substance made from atomic particles. This includes all solids, liquids, and gases. In the other category; you have nothing. It is the formless aspect of our reality that enables all form and substance to be. It is the space that allows everything to exist.

What is indestructible? What is it that can never expire? What never changes? What was here before creation and will be here after the last star in the universe burns out? Nothing or no-thing.

Every thing that exists in the universe is subject to change. Every thing had a beginning. Every thing exists for a period of time. And every thing will, sooner or later cease to exist. Don't take my word for it. Look it up. According to science and religion alike, the universe was created with a big bang. Before this, there was nothing. And after it runs it's course; this version of the universe will return to a state of nothingness.

It's not as bleek as it sounds at first glance. This no-thing that is being referred to is, paradoxically, just the opposite of what most people think nothing is. This formlessness is full. It holds with in it infinite possibilities. In other words, without empty space, form would have no place to exist. This space gives birth to the infinite amount of substances and events that may occur with in it. If an object is occupying a given space, the area is temporarily reduced to a finite amount of possibilities. When nothing is there; the possibilities are limitless as to what may occur there.

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust. The human body does not last forever. The spirit, on the other hand, is as eternal as no-thingness. We have always been and will always be. While the formless aspect of ourselves is still largely a mystery; becoming aware of it starts to shed light on the infinite qualities we possess.

On the flip side, our perspective of things changes constantly, but who we truly are lasts forever.

Absolutely. The observer remains the same reguardless of the individual identity and the perspective that brings. The observer is our indestructable true essence while our individual identity will end as every-thing else.

Thanks for the comment Walt.
