Nothingness

Guiding a meditation event earlier this evening, mid-way through the workshop I was able to slip into a meditative state of mind in an instant. Completely relaxed and peaceful, inwardly focused yet outwardly aware, I was, at some part of my brain, reflecting upon recent events of past days that may have upset me. Surprisingly, nothing significant surfaced. I knew for certain there were dealings that should have annoyed me, but in that state of mind, none of it carried any importance. Those incidences were like faint echoes in the distance rather than loud shouts across the room.
It occurred to me that nothingness does not necessarily mean no thought, nothing, nada, but rather that items, including such unfortunate incidents, are held in the mind in proportion to their real significance in the bigger scheme of things, which is to say that in most cases, with little to no importance. Thus nothingness is not emptiness but rather the idea that nothing is sufficiently important to cause upset.
What a delightful insight!
