色不异空, 空不异色。 色即是空,空即是色。

Form is emptiness, emptiness is form. Form is no other than void, Void is no other than form.

I visited my psychiatrist few months back…i reached a point of life where i noticed everything that is going on currently doesn’t matter. If humans are all dead, we wouldn’t have to deal with pointless stuff like each and everyone’s character and personality.

What is the point to wake up in the morning, live the day cautiously. Being careful with what you say and do. I mean, if we die. We don’t have to deal with all these anymore.

I voiced it out because it has been draining me. It is painful to live by everything realizing it’s all pointless. Facing the passerby’s and to wonder why are they even living their life in this nothingness. what’s the point? Facing my colleagues at work and question myself why do i have to subject myself to deal with their emotions? Lastly, why are we all being part of this reality monopoly ?

His response to my questions were ‘ Yes, if we're are all dead we don’t have to deal with pointless stuff like other people…But to die so that we don’t have to deal with all these also means we are gonna leave out the stuff that could’ve been good also. Yes all these are actually nothing, look around us. All these forms are nothing.. but it is a human instinct to desire to live. We are all NOTHING. That’s why we humans create something out of these nothingness.’

And he left me with this message for the end of the session ‘ create something out of your life. Don’t end it just because its pointless to deal with it’
