You are nothing, and if you really put your faith in this nothing you cannot be disappointed. If you put your faith in something, then you become dependent on it and when you lose it you fall flat on your face. So please, have deep faith in your true nature, your indefinable no-self, and be truly free. (p. 76) (Quotations from Dennis Genpo Merzel)Buddist (Quotations from Shui-ch'ing Tzu) The gate that gives me life is the gate that gives me death. Only a few understand this intuitively. (p. 18)
(Quotations from The Tao Te Ching) To die but not to perish is to be eternally present. (33)
Nahmanides: Jue ...the true meaning of the text (creatio ex nihilo) is the emergence of all things from the absolute nothingness of God. (p. 95)
