Reality, the solid whole body and the rest of creation, is displaced by projection (the whole body creates and places, or “projects” our reality, including the self, from his or her Central Nervous System). Their actuality, of the whole body and creation, disappears from within our projected reality, but manifests by projection beyond our Emptiness as Nothingness. At the centre of Nothingness is the one essence of the whole of creation (All 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, at the end of Nothingness. Do not seek but relate with the whole body who encompasses our all and who must be there. And the spirit may reach you, through Nothingness.
emptiness, nothingness and the spirit
“Emptiness” is the disassociation within projection, across which we are ‘having an experience’. It is our immediate environment, the spaces between and around what we experience, the self having an experience, the conscious, deeper being, 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)
I have introduced the spirit as the one essence of All creation and the whole body. As of any experience, we may regard all possible manifestations of the spirit as projection, and refer to the whole body that we and our experience belong to, as projected parts.
