A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ — a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.” – Einstein

 How do we undelude our consciousness and why would we

focus on the space between everything, to achieve a meditative state of zen?

When we refer to zen, we think of quiet and peaceful feelings that often include enlightened moments of conscious awareness. In Western cultures, it is also a slang reference used to describe situations, experiences, or conditions that have qualities similar to that description.

Another way to think of zen is as a state of mind that is focused on the concept of space as it occurs between thoughts. To illustrate, if we thought of zen as the appearance of space between objects or particles, we could then relate to the concept of the spatial qualities that exist between most things.

             

What does the content of these photos have in common?

The answer is, particles that reflect light – AND – the appearance of space between particles.

The above photo on the top is house dust floating in the air. The above photo on the bottom is dust in outer space.

Particles or matter collected into objects, energy and movement, and related spatial concepts

are studied in sciences such as astronomy, astrophysics, quantum physics, and quantum mechanics.

                                                

These photos show what is known within science as dark energy observed as displacing matter.

It is called “dark energy” because it does not reflect light.

Even though there is an appearance of blackened spaces in the last two photos,

the reality is that those spaces are filled with energy, so the blackness is in fact, not empty.

Such is the case with our connectiveness to All That Is, the Source of Life.

To experience zen, we first connect with Nothingness, No-Thing-Ness. It is not empty.

It is known as empty-mindedness and is the conscious quality of spaciousness.

This heightened state of consciousness when connected to Source energy is Samadhi in Sanskrit.

As humans, we are part of the whole, named as the Universe.

Our perceptions tell us otherwise, but we are not separate from the rest.

Focus on the space between thoughts, words, or objects;

It is the zero gravity point of self-empowerment and enlightenment – the zen space place.
