Energy and Somatic (body-oriented) methods of healing and creativity mysteriously draw on the essence of one of my early mentors.
"You're really nothing. But this is most incredible nothing. So cheer up! You see? The essence of your mind is intrinsically pure. Pure means clear, void. See? If you think of this idea of nothingness as mere blankness, and you hold onto this idea of blankness then kind of grizzly about it, you haven't understood it. Nothingness is really like the nothingness of space, which contains the whole universe. All the sun and the stars and the mountains, and rivers, and the good men and bad men, and the animals, and insects, and the whole bit. All are contained in void. So out of this void comes everything and You Are IT. What else could you be?” ― Alan W. Watts, The Essence of Alan Watts
This is the visceral experience that so many experience with Focalizing and other similar methods, how wonderfully liberating to have (and begin coming from) this larger, vibrant perspective.
