N for Nothingness

Nothing is the absence of something. It could be anything but when that anything is not there, it leaves a void. That empty feeling, that nothingness, ironically weighs heavy. How can nothing be heavy?

That empty feeling when the loved one has to go away for a while is one such experience. The house feels alone, empty and quiet. The heart is empty and yearns for that morning hug. The bed, the couch, hell even the kitchen feels empty. That nothingness sucks.

Sometimes the mere shifting around on the bed even in the deepest sleep brings this near-empty feeling and you reach out to see if he's there. That reassurance brings a deep sigh.

At some level, this nothingness brings you closer to the cosmos. The deep meditation techniques bring you one with nature. At that point, nothingness becomes light & weightless. You are free from all worries; the universe takes care of you. Living in the moment of nothingness brings you closer to that moment that you've been searching for all your life. Nothingness is also termed as Absolute or Nirvana.

What do you perceive nothingness as?

    Caught your "N" on the facebook post.

    Nothingness makes me think of The Neverending Story (the second movie covered this, I think).
    What I can not conceive of is an "edge" to the universe. What would be there? What would it look like? Blackness? White space? Are either of those nothing??

  7. Liked your introspection on this topic. Nothingness is part of life, especially when one become apt in doing things. It seems boring but meditation helps.

  8. Interpretation of nothingness differs for each individual. I have nothing to do or no thing to do doesn't sound good to me at all. For me it is still void. Maybe because that reason I am always searching for something to do.

  11. My western mind struggles to comprehend the concept of nothingness. My growing eastern mind feels it, but can't explain it. Very thought-provoking post.

  14. Nothingness is "Bliss"!! The moment that can teach world's biggest lessons that even 1000 books and millions of money cannot teach!

  15. Sometimes I like to be cut off from everyone. I would like to go to the terrace, climb up the tank and enjoy the view and the silence there. Most of the times, I prefer going to the beach and just staring at the waves up till the horizon. That's when my mind is tranquil.
