Infinite and zero

It started like any other day. I woke up. I did the usual morning ritual. I ate breakfast, said goodbye to kids as they were already up by the time and drove to office. On the way, this feeling hit me. I felt like stopping in the middle of the road and savor it. Realizing that that probably would be a very bad idea, I kept on driving albeit slowly.

There are only two ways. You either become infinity and become one with It or become zero and dissolve into It. Become infinity and everything happens in you. There is no reason to worry and no need to feel sorry. Everything is you. Become zero and you remain untouched and unattached. Nothing affects you. There is no reason to worry and no need to feel sorry. In either case, you transcend everything and achieve everlasting bliss. When you are somewhere in between other than zero or infinity, you are thrown around by the vicissitudes of life. You feel completely out control. Just know that you are not in control. Control is just an illusion. Just think how many things have happened the way they were planned.

Imagine living inside an ocean. If you are the ocean, then no matter how high the tide goes or how fast the storm moves, they are all part of you. They cannot harm you. Or imagine you are a tiny being, so tiny that you cannot even touch the ocean. You remain untouched when the ocean is calm and you remain untouched when the ocean is stormy and wild. Usually though, you are neither of those, neither the infinite ocean nor the infinitesimally tiny being. Tide will then take you high and throw you down. Storm will take you far and wide with innumerable other beings in it. There will be collisions. All these are inevitable. It is in the Ocean’s nature to be such.
