The most beautiful thing in the world is space. Space is the defining characteristic of every successful relationship. In the moment we’re aware of space, the mind goes, “Ahhhh.” And sinks into subservience.
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.
The world is temporal, meaning time-bound and finite. It came from nothing and is now in the process of returning to nothing. To paraphrase the timeless Stephen Hawking, ‘Why bother?’ Spare a thought for cosmologists! Still looking for a cause. Still not finding one.
