ALL APPEARANCE / EXPERIENCE IS MIND.
You do not see what is really going on. You can't. You have limited observation capabilities through your senses and your mind interprets all information received. The way I experience a sunset, a movie, or any event will be different from the way that you experience the event. My version of you is different from your version of you.
YOUR MIND EXPERIENCE IS EMPTY OF AN INDEPENDENT FIXED REALITY.
What you see as a tree, as a deer, or whatever....doesn't even inherently exist as you see it. "Trees" consists of cells, which consist of elements and compounds, which are made of quantum particles interacting with consciousness and other quantum particles. Trees as you know them do not exist absent your consciousness.
EMPTINESS / EXPERIENCE SPONTANEOUSLY ARISES FROM POSSIBILITY.
Everything is in constant flux, interpreted and arising from a myriad of quantum possibilities interacting with each other, moment by moment. Every single moment arises from a myriad of possibility collapsing into a reality we call now.
POSSIBILITY IS SELF LIBERATING.
Once an event arises, it goes away. Another event arises and goes away.
You are alive, or at least having the experience of being alive. Your body will die. Weather changes. These things will happen. How we experience them is based upon our thoughts, beliefs, speech, and actions. Change seems hard and takes work, but we create our experience.
