Shunyata

Shunyata in Sanskrit means literally "void" or "emptiness", that is to say, "space", the absence of all conceptualized attitudes.

Thats what i'm feeling right now...absolutely no power over my thought process and nor do I have the reasoning for it....feels like the brains took a holiday all by themselves :(

There is a feeling of suspension, somewhere between, knowing and not caring...Things fall into place, only because they have been tuned inside the system, to function.....nevertheless, there is a fear that it might take over physical functions....Is it so tough to bring back that feeling of "I know myself" or is it tougher to know that there is a pause in the processess...

No coherency, is what brings about confusion...and its being pulled into the void of blankness..

Thought that such a feeling means, you are under control, ....but am I really??!!

so that's how it feels to be 'spaced out'...hee..hee:)

somtimes you need to give routine a kick, and just let things happen by itself...its quite soothing...

i think u r like the parachuteer, gliding slowly back to earth...till u hit ground, ouch!!!

It happens to all of us at some point of time.More so if you have kids yo attend to.Nothing seems okay and one wants some time for personal space.a few days of relaxation and then we're back with a new vigor.I am sure this too will pass.

@hipgrandma So true...I really pray it passes off too soon, before I start resembling a monkey :)

Keshi said...

@keshi Its so true, that music does give some peace...tried that, but it hit a wall....now its all dying down...and am back to being normal ;)

@anon hey thanks, I guess this faith in the power above has a great hold on me, and thats why, i'm able to go on

@tys...oh the wonders of that one shot!!! The fear that was , was the fact that I reached this state without any help??? Shouldn't that really scare me out??
But I did meet a few fabulous friends out here and it made a whole lot of difference...
