Zero Comes First

31 Aug

Of all numbers we have come to think of Zero as the most useless, the most worthless. One gets to be top dog, two is almost as great as One, and Three is not that bad. But poor Zero, at the front of the line; yet, it is ignored and discounted. Zero stands alone: a number with no value. Sounds like a chapter from our own biography, right? Strangers brush past us on the street as if we’re not there. Friends abandon us as if we don’t matter. Lovers leave us as if we never existed. We’re present and uncounted: Zero.

But Zero is not worthless. Zero is not useless. Zero is the possibility of all numbers. Do you get that? Zero is where all numbers come from. Zero announces the potential of counting. And they very one everyone is overlooking at this moment (you) is only the potential of who you could be…of who you will be. From nothing comes everything.

Make the most of your Zero moment. Think of it this way: you have no distractions, no facade, no lies to hide the bare truth of who you are. From that shapeless void you can create yourself however you want. You can see whats broken and begin to mend. You can see whats flawed and improve. Your journey may bring you to Zero, maybe more than once, but that’s okay. ‘Cause what appears to be nothing is really everything; Zero comes first.
