Nothing


I have been told in my dream circles to pay special attention to anything that someone gives to you in your dream. In a recent dream a woman gave me these words, ”Thank you.” I replied, “I really didn’t do anything.” She then said, “Your presence alone means a lot. You really need to work on your negative self talk.” In the West when we say, “It was nothing,” we are negating ourselves. In the Eastern way of thinking, ‘nothing’, is really ‘something’ because empty space is not just empty, it is actually full of pure potential! When we allow space and stillness in our lives, nothing is the something we are practicing because everything comes from this ‘nothing.’ Maybe the next time someone tells us, ”Thank you,” a better response might be, “I’m happy to hear that because I wanted to do something special for you.”
