What is and what is not – Lo que Es y lo que no es


 
If ‘this,’ the world of things and ideas, is seen as what is real, as true, as ‘reality,’
then That which is completely and radically ‘not-this,’
for which there are no words or ideas within ‘this,’
will necessarily be seen as no thing, as unreal…
It is only when ‘this,’ this so-called ‘reality’
is completely understood to be dreamlike illusion
that what is ‘not-this’ will, at the same time, be seen to be What Is.
…the heart turns from the illusion of ‘this’ and opens to What Is.
 
David Carse

Si ‘esto’, el mundo de las cosas y las ideas, se ve como real, verdadero, como ‘realidad’,
Aquelo que es completa y radicalmente ‘no-esto’,
para lo que ho hay palabras o ideas a partir de ‘esto’,
se verá necesariamente como una nada (no-thing), como irreal…
Es solamente cuando ‘esto’, esta llamada ‘realidad’
se comprende enteramente como lo que es, una ilusión parecida a un sueño,
que lo que es ‘no-esto’ se verá al instante como Lo que Es.
 … el corazón dará la espalda a la ilusión de ‘esto’y se abrirá a Lo que Es.

 
David Carse
