no matter what you write down its going to an "idea" a "concept" aka nothing. or you can look at everthing AS IT IS, and not what you think it isnt.

No, there's some flaws there. Let's talk about that.

Nothing can be conceptualized as an idea, however ideas are not nothing. If we look as individual ideas as subsets of all Idea, then nothing is a subset of potential ideas, and so a concept.

Ideas are not nothing.

Example: a unicorn is a imaginary being as an idea. All ideas are not unicorns.

The other part i.e. referring to everything as it is...

We can only look at individual aspects of ideas, not the summation. That kind of thinking is theoretically called Gestalt. As humans we cannot think that way, or at least there are few who potentially can.

Some of us would love to be able to think holistically. That's a noble goal.

In Zen Buddhism that is called satori, a transitory Epiphany of awareness holistically

There is also in Zen Buddhism Mushin or "no mind" or a very superior ultimate form of intuition in which all is immediately grasped in a holistic way.
