52. The Ground of Being

The body is the ground of being.

Our task as practitioners isn’t to change or empty the contents of our consciousness, but to fall backwards into the actual feeling, momentary state, which is prior to words, and prior to both thoughts and the type of thinking we call emotion.

The fog of the self collapses back into the ground, actualising space.

The ground upholds all things. Space contains all things. Thus are all things liberated from our love and hate, and so cease to be provisional and limited.

Thus each thing is everything, and has absolute value.
