Emptiness – Shunyata
‘Emptiness’ means uncontaminated consciousness.
“Oh, do I have to be really holy to experience that?”!
When the eyes just see,
the ears just hear,
the nose just smells,
the tongue just tastes,
the body just feels,
the mind just perceives …
that is emptiness.
It’s with us all the time,
as we are, firstly and originally, pure consciousness.
All beings experience this but do not notice its significance,
which why the term ‘ignorance’ is used.
Emptiness goes by many names.
Ignorance goes by one name,
and that name is ‘Myself’.
Ignorance isn’t a problem when we notice it –
precisely because of what is noticing it …
that old, old – very old – timeless pure consciousness.
Have a great day.
