This teaching is from a live meditation & talk on how to realize nothingness in meditation. You can listen to it by playing the youtube video below. It's nice to meditate to while reading.
"The mind must cling on to something. It clings on to the body, clings on to thoughts, clings on to emotions.
When it can cling on to something it feels real, it feels as though it's something solid, defined, and that feels safe.
Even though there's suffering in that safety, there's limitation in that safety, there's separation in that safety there's even conflict, stress, it prefers that safety.
But when the mind begins to recognize that which is beyond thinking, beyond emotions, beyond the physical, it recognizes a sense of being that it can cling on to. And there's nothing wrong with that.
So you cling on to a sense of impersonal being that does not have form but still has a sense of self to it which is peaceful to a certain degree; blissful to a certain degree.
But if the mind does not cling on to that self, if your attention does not have to cling on, if you release that clinging urge, when you relax that sense of being enough it becomes something that cannot be spoken about in any way.
It's the absence of everything. It is the absence of everything yet it is infinite.
You no longer have a center, you're scattered in all directions; everywhere.
Words like nothingness, the void they kind of point to it but they're almost derogatory; they're not good words, but they point to that absence of everything: Not this, not this, not this.
See the mind clings on; clings on to thinking, the personal self, then it clings on to a sense of being as consciousness but the nothingness it cannot cling on to.
The infinite, it cannot cling on to.
Yet the mind does recognize incredible delight, happiness, joy when that clinging is no more. When consciousness no longer has a center.
It mischievously becomes intoxicated by its own relinquishment.
