The Point Of Nothing – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

RDP Thursday – Nothing




“Free yourself from the burden of feeling the need to hold on to anything. Let go … you are a part of everything.”  Steve Maraboli


The Point Of Nothing

The point of nothing is
precisely the point,
the indecipherable point of everything,
as much as every colour is white
in the making, a surrender,
nothing is everything at one let go,
having it all by having none,
you cannot imprison love
for it ceases to exist,
only when it is set free
can it truly be.

  3. Letting go and not clinging — wise words.
    Another angle: While love needs to be free, it also needs to be nourished, Does this take some “holding close” a times? 🙂

  14. Very well written. True, there is much joy in letting go of things you love. Then you free yourselves from encumbrances if you can let go of things in your life. And love that is free is the highest form of love.
