··· Tags pointing to: empty ···

There are always moments when one feels empty and estranged. Such moments are most desirable, for it means the soul has cast its moorings and is sailing for distant places. This is detachment—when the old is over and the new has not yet come. If you are afraid the state may be distressing, there is really nothing to be afraid of. Remember: What ever you come across—go beyond.

— Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj [via]  <link>

Clay is used to make vases, but it is the emptiness they contain that makes them useful.
