Apparent But Empty
All things seem clearly visible, understood, and obvious while,
at the same time, they are empty of permanent reality
as they come and go.
All things come to pass.
In understanding this, we take our first steps to wisdom – and freedom.
Believing things to be real, we fall into an illusion.
We need to question; what is real and what isn’t?
Science sees reality as whatever we perceive.
That which perceives is consciousness.
This is the reality as it never changes.
Believing things to be real causes consciousness to become confused,
and fall deeper in illusions.
Pure consciousness is cognisant and empty;
it is uncontaminated, and so it’s never confused.
There is a reason why people turn to the spiritual question
of whether there is more to us than just matter and ideas.
