The Tenderness Of Attentiveness

When something is whole, by definition, it’s unchanging and complete.
When split into two, this upsets the equilibrium of wholeness.

Emptiness and consciousness are two aspects of our being:
Emptiness is absolute reality.
Consciousness is relative reality.
By virtue of one, the other can be known.

When emptiness is forgotten, consciousness becomes impure.
When empty essence is remembered, consciousness becomes pure.

If we have a light side, then we also have a dark side.
If we forget empty essence, we fall into ordinary consciousness and react to everything as being solid and real.
If we forget consciousness, we become caught up in nihilistic voidness, and are unable to relate.

Empty essence and cognisant nature complete a wholeness which equals compassionate energy. This is the tenderness of attentiveness.
