What do we learn from emptiness?

That is the insane question. Emptiness means emptiness. It is impossible to learn something from nothing. That is the reason why people don’t want to feel empty. They have to gain something so that they can have more and more. They misunderstood that emptiness is the lobby for the devil to take place. They keep themselves mess with things and activities. They have to do something to feel avoid emptiness. Emptiness means fear, and no one doesn’t want to feel fear.

However, emptiness is considered completely opposite to the one who enlighten. Emptiness will bring holiness to life. Of course, emptiness is nothing. I cannot pay you for the emptiness. Emptiness has no cost. I will not pay you for nothing, and you will definitely not pay me for nothing also. That is the common sense we can understand.

However, the emptiness is valuable. Like Oscar Wilde said, we know the price of everything but know the value of nothing. This is the quote for the one who cannot see the value of emptiness but try to pin the zero dollars on “nothing”

We utilize the emptiness everyday. Look around you. If you are in the room, you are using the space in the room, not the wall or the cellar. If you are in the elevator, you didn’t get the benefit from the light or the lift wall but the space inside it. Even your laptop. You get benefit from the space provided from you to collected file. See? The emptiness has the benefit itself.

Emptiness is much more powerful and useful than you think. If you can clear your ego and provide the space in your being, life will be glorious. When your ego exists, your being is a mess like the room that has never been tidied up. Dispel your ego. Clear your being by giving up and opening to things that happen to you no matter they are good or bad. You have none of business in them. You just allow them to pass your life. Feel the flow that pass to your lives. Then, you will be the emptiness that is valuable for people that come to you, things that come to you and the situation that come to you.

  1. This is such a thoughtful post! I remember my mother always used to say “the empty mind is the home of demons”. But I’m realizing that when we truly feel uneasy when “empty”, it doesn’t mean that we are lazy or unworthy. It means that we are not comfortable enough in our own company. We aren’t truly at peace with ourselves and our surroundings. The mind may be the home of the demons, but only if we let it.
