The Power of Emptiness

       The "void" or " psychological emptiness" is a strange phenomenon,
       It appears spontaneously, in the pause between two thoughts,
       As the old thought ends its course and disappears,
       Its end is the gate, natural silence ensues.

       Insist in being with it, as much as you can,
       The mind is completely silent, we are attentive - a clear 
                                                                                          consciousness,
       All meanings, boundaries disappear – us and the Infinite are "One";
       Practically, we have a new mind – always fresh.


       Being in the pause – I become infinite!
       It separates two worlds. I leave the limited world
       And enter Boundlessness, through total melting;
       The whole being is calm – a constant sparkle.

       There is no time, no space – just everlasting Eternity;
       I move in direct contact with life, in a permanent present.
       I am Pure Energy, without motivations,
       The simplicity of existence integrates us completely.
