Between the stars

The fastest way to stop thinking is to notice nothing. Silence, for example. Or the space between this word and the next. Do this frequently. The mind is thing-addicted. No-thing slaps it silly.

Akasha is a Sanskrit word for space, sky, or ether. It derives from the root kas, meaning “to be.” Science confirms that, on an atomic level, the human body is essentially akashic, being 99.9999999% empty space. We’re like solar systems interacting with each other.
