Embracing the Fundamental Reality of Nothingness

So in this way by seeing that nothingness is the fundamental reality and you see it's your reality, then how can anything contaminate.

All the idea of your being scared and put out and worried and so on it's just nothing. It's a dream. Because you're real enough but this is the most incredible nothing. So cheer up you see the essence of your mind is intrinsically pure, clear, void.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug
