Afraid of nothing

Why are we so afraid of nothing?

Is it because we conflate the idea of nothing, with death?

Is it because we equate the idea of nothing, with absence of activity — of movement — of life?

Nothing is the most wonderful, inexpressibly wonder full … thing … that I know.

Nothing is silence.

Nothing is stillness.

Nothing is peace.

The nearer to absolute nothing, the nearer to perfect peace.

The more the heart holds on to no-thing, the more the heart is stilled with peace.

 

If they ask you:
What is the sign of the Father in you?
Say to them:
It is movement with rest.

— Jesus of Nazareth, Gospel of Thomas, Logion 50
