If there is no true emptiness (nothingness) and, therefore, no separation, and, therefore, no possibility of physical movement, then all change is but an illusion, i.e. a dream.
Pattern Interruption Non-News has no informational value, just potential experiential value. [Food-for-thought, by definition, comes with indigestion. If food-for-thought goes down easy, it's not food-for-thought but just brain-candy.]

We are too focused on learning (something new) and not focused enough on un-learning (something old that keeps getting in the way). Much of the time when clients come to see me they want to learn something new. Much of the time what actually seems to help them is un-learning of something old that kept getting in the way. Ask yourself: "What do I need to un-learn today?" Learn what you need to un-learn.
First, meditation is a technique, something you do. Then, meditation is a self-study, still something you do. Then, meditation is a study of non-self, something you let happen. Then, meditation is a non-study, a thing that happens on its own, now and then. And then, after a while, any distinction between meditation and non-meditation ceases to exist and meditation becomes a way of being and non-being.
To make a mirror you need a sandwich of transparence and obscuration (a layer of transparent film and a layer of non-transparent film).
