Silence is prayer, prays the Atma Puya Upanishad. And, really, little more we need to arrive at the knowledge of what is essential. In an ordinary, verbal prayer, listen to ourselves; they are words, language, what you want to communicate with the Supreme. And the language is limited, it is an instrument for use among humans, but not to communicate with the divine. Prayer (from the lat. oris-ratio: the mouth that reasoning) could be defined as the reason expressed by means of words and Word or mouth (from lat.
parable Gr. Parabole: comparison, simile) is nothing more than an image that it overrides the object, i.e. a subjective budget for the real thing. Therefore, access to the real us escapes to be internalized in language, as you would understand Lacan, the real no-es, or cannot comprehend. The real thing is nothing. Here’s a Word, nothing of great philosophical importance, converted into an ISM by authors such as Schopenhauer and Nietzsche. And it is nihilism is the big mouth of modern and postmodern philosophical thought.
The ISM of existence, according to Sartre, lies in the acceptance of nothing against the transcendent or metaphysical. Let us remember the Sartre key work of the formulation of Existentialism: being and nothingness. What can you do be with nothing? What can you do something against something that is nothing? What can you explain us that nothing pop up something? Make sense being something to be then nothing? Here we have the great dichotomy of the meaning of existence: idealismo-materialismo. Essential against the accidental. Be-Essentials of Parmenides against the be-accidental of Heraclitus. The whole is against all changes. Buddhism assigns two qualities of the existence that deny the essence. The characteristic of non – being or no-alma (anatman) and impermanence (anitya). Buddhism does not speak of nothing but empty (sunya). See the Heart Sutra. And there is a big difference. Nothing It is impassable, but in a vacuum can enter, thankfully.
