The Point of “Nothingness”

On the inner-directed path,
Nothingness is freedom from somethingness.
We are somethings,
but we didn’t create ourselves—
that was the work of all the forces we’ve been under
since Day One.
In moments of clarity, we understand
that it is not our job
to polish this something up
into a ‘better’ something.
Rather, to surrender,
and keep surrendering,
to what actually is—
as we head for freedom
from the hypnotic headlock
somethingness has us in.
