A short break from drafting up business documents is complimented by a follow up to my former post.
Being formless allows the notions of friend and foe to dissolve; it makes it known that there is no such thing as an external enemy or ally. These concepts, although intangible, are forms themselves and can only attach to other types of forms. On these grounds, formlessness gives you the ability to take the shape that other forms need to attach themselves to, it gives you the choice to be despised, desired or any seemingly true sentiment that other forms are able to conceive.
Let’s get one thing clear: this doesn’t mean that there are no absolutes, nor does it negate the concept of objectivity; it only shows that people cannot live [happily] within these constructs, and as I said on my first rant about the drunk and my beer glass: reality is something we are meant to live in; we are not meant to understand it. I will submit now that we are incapable of understanding it fully.
Look at the people around you and see their form, their behaviour, their choice of movements and realise that they are predictable… that every action they commit to comes from a deep need to satisfy that form; a need that prevents them from making true choices.
It makes sense that if formlessness is the ideal condition that we should strive to be formless. And if you had that question happen to you as you read this, then you may have what it takes to get there.
