The Universal Viewpoint

The reference point of “Me, my self or I” leads to the irrational conclusions characterized by narcissism. The true reference point is Emptiness of no pre-conceived notions (not even the notion of “self” is there), which then provides a Universal Viewpoint.

On a scale, all values are measured from the reference point of zero. This works because zero has no value. The reference point of zero does not add anything to the value being measured.

Similarly, in this universe, all phenomena can be viewed objectively from the reference point of Emptiness. This works because Emptiness itself is absence of all phenomena. The reference point of Emptiness does not add anything to the phenomenon being viewed.

When one is looking from the viewpoint of emptiness one is fully aware of everything that fills the emptiness. That means one can see the proper ratios between things. In other words one rationally comprehends what is there and the relationships among those things.
