Subtle sense – Jan 2017
Our reality is a part of our whole being, projected through the Central Nervous System (brain and spine). We are displaced from our whole in being projected. Within projection our reality is made-up of disassociated parts : the conscious, self, what we experience, deeper being, witness, are different aspects or parts within our projected part. Further more, we are isolated from our whole being as we identify in our self and with what we experience,.within our projected reality,
I depict and represent how we exist, as a part of a whole being of reality. Rather than in isolated experiences, by which the self regards the world and others, I hope to draw the viewer towards a sense of their own part, which implies their whole.
There’s a whole being of reality who is missing in our reality;
he or she can never be in our reality.
We are a part of our whole, projected through
the Central Nervous System.
We can approach our being a part, our projected actuality,
and thereby consider being in relation with our whole.
An orientation – reality in its entirety; whole self/whole body/whole being of reality, in reality, touched by the rest of reality; our reality, including us as self or identity, projected by our whole through his or her CNS (Central Nervous System) projected part of our individual whole, placed in space in our “actuality” (existence in fact and in reality)
Emptiness, nothingness and the spirit – Oneness of whole being and All creation
“Emptiness” is the disassociation within projection, across which we are having an experience. It is our immediate environment, the spaces between and immediately around what we experience, our identity, the conscious and witness.
(Kuu of Zen Buddhism)
“Nothingness” is the absence, due to and in projection, of the solid whole body who is actually there, in and of reality. From where we are having an experience, within projection, the whole body disappears with the rest of creation.
(Mu of Zen Buddhism)
We can understand the whole of reality to consist of both our whole self or being who is of reality and the rest of reality. Reality cannot exist in our projected part. But reality is represented beyond Emptiness, as Nothingness. At the centre of Nothingness is the one essence of the whole of creation and the whole body, the spirit. It is the closest we get to reality in projection, where the rest of creation that touches the whole body is a long, long way away, beyond Nothingness. Look to be in relation with the whole self who encompasses our all, and who must be there, beyond yet infusing projection, in reality. The spirit may reach you, through Nothingness.
