In the Middle of Two Nothings are All Things

Out of nothingness is born a tree.
Then come flowers, fruits, and a thousand and one things.
But each thing again becomes a seed, and the seed falls into earth
and again becomes that voidness.
This is the circle of existence:
from nothing to nothing, from nowhere to nowhere.
In the middle of of two nowheres is the dream, the samasara.
In the middle of two nothings are all things.
Hence, they are called dreamstuff;
hence, they are called maya,
hence they are called nothing but thoughts, fantasies.
This is the Tantra tree.
- Osho
