“Being in the gap can be disorienting and even scary.”

No-thingness. I have picked this card from my Zen Tarot deck twice in about one week. Twice out of 80-something cards.

“Nothing to hold on to, no sense of direction, not even a hint of what choices and possibilities lie ahead.”


“But it was just this state of pure potential that existed before the universe was created.”

Think that’s a message for me?

“All you can do now is relax into this no-thingness…fall into this silence between the words…watch this gap between the outgoing and the incoming breath.”

I am starting to get this, finally. Living fully is not about forcing and pushing and controlling. It isn’t meant to be about expecting and orchestrating and, did I say controlling?

And treasure each empty moment of the experience. Something sacred is about to be born.”

Being in the nothingness is scary. It can feel empty. It doesn’t feel right. Why are we to slow down when we want to speed up? We’re not always in charge, but we thought we were. You didn’t expect it to be this way  in your life. No, it wasn’t supposed to be this way, it was supposed to be that way. 

“Nothing is not just nothing, it is all.”

It is about letting go. Opening up through your breath, your thoughts, your everything. It is about staying right here and now. It is a practice. Not an automatic change. A practice that needs practicing every single day, sometimes every single moment. 

Yes, I feel it. I know it. It is already happening. It is lovely when you allow it to be lovely. Even the no-thingness. Especially the no-thingness.

“It is vibrant with all possibilities. It is potential, absolute potential. It is unmanifest yet, but it contains all.”

Don’t be scared. It is all working out exactly as it should. For you. Right now.
