75. There is No Need to Attain A Spiritual State of Nothingness

I was trying to attain a spiritual state of nothingness during meditation.  I thought that if I had not thought of anything, I could be the spiritual state of nothingness.  However, for all my efforts, I could not stop thinking.  When I realized the true self, I noticed it was the perfect spiritual state of nothingness.  I attained the spiritual state of nothingness by becoming the true self, without asking the spiritual state of nothingness.  Thoughts still happen in my mind, but the true self keeps a deep silence without thinking about anything.
