Emptiness When you rest in quietness and your image of yourself fades, and your image of the world fades, and your ideas of others fade, what’s left? A brightness, a radiant emptiness that is simply what you are. ~Adyashanti We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality, we are that reality. When we understand this you see you are nothing, and in being nothing you are everything. ~Buddha Observe and gradually you will come to see that all existence is occurring in empty awareness. ~Mooji If you look at your own mind you will discover it is void and groundless; as insubstantial as empty space. ~Padma Sambdhava ‘Emptiness’ means empty of a separate self. It is full of everything, full of life. The word emptiness should not scare us. It is a wonderful word. To be empty does not mean non-existent. Emptiness is the ground of everything. Thanks to emptiness, everything is possible. ~Thich Nhat Hanh Things are all made from nothing; hence their true source is nothing. ~Meister Eckhart Nothing is the shadow of Everything. ~Meher Baba The void is where we do not perceive, it is the latent potential from which all things arise. ~Steven Sadleir Moment after moment everything comes out of nothingness. This is the true joy of life. ~Shunryu Suzuki The Void is both the source of nothingness and, at the very same time, the source of everythingness. In short, the void is the limitless context in which your entire world is both appearing and disappearing. ~Chuck Hillig Every moment is nothing without end. ~Octavio Paz Nothingness is an absolute infinite potential, not an empty box. ~Adyashanti To be here, all you have to do is let go of who you think you are. That’s all! And then you realize, “I’m here.” Here is where thoughts aren’t believed. Every time you come here, you are nothing. Radiantly nothing. Absolutely and eternally zero. Emptiness that is awake. Emptiness that is full. Emptiness that is everything. ~Adyashanti In the space of no-mind, truth descends like light. ~Osho Love came and emptied me of Self, every vein and every pore, made into a container to be filled by the Beloved. Of me, only a name is left, the rest is You my friend, my Beloved. ~Abu-Said Abil-Kheir The more awake you are, the less there is of you here. At the very deepest level of Presence, you have disappeared and only God is. ~Leonard Jacobson There is only life. There is nobody who lives a life. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj Why aren’t you happy? It’s because ninety-nine percent of everything you do, and think, and say, is for youself–and there isn’t one. ~Wu Wei Wu I am but there is no “me.” ~Wei Wu Wei I am not but the Universe is myself. ~Shih T’ou To be absolutely nothing is to be beyond measure. ~Jiddu Krishnamurti When you are no more, only then for the first time will you be. ~Osho It began of nothing and in nothing ends. ~Gaius Cornelius Gallus Look upon the body as unreal, an image in a mirror, the reflection of the moon in water. Contemplate the mind as formless, yet bright and pure. Not a single thought arising, empty, yet perceptive; still, yet illuminating; complete like the Great Emptiness, containing all that is wonderful. ~Han Shan Te Ch’ing Form is emptiness, emptiness is form. ~Heart Sutra The capacity of the mind is broad and huge, like the vast sky. Do not sit with a mind fixed on emptiness. If you do, you will fall into a neutral kind of emptiness. Emptiness includes the sun, moon, stars, and planets, the great earth, mountains and rivers, all trees and grasses, bad people and good people, bad things and good things, heaven and hell; they are all in the midst of emptiness. The emptiness of human nature is also like this. ~Hui-Neng If emptiness cannot dance, it is not true emptiness. If moonlight does not flood the empty night sky and reflect in every drop of water, on every blade of grass, then you are only looking at your own empty dream. I say “Wake up!” Then your heart will be flooded with a Love that you cannot contain. ~Adyashanti When you come to think about it, nothing has any meaning, for when there was nobody to think, there was nobody to interpret what happened. ~Carl Jung Pure no-thing-ness is conscious intelligence. ~Gangaji No one’s mouth is big enough to utter the whole thing. ~Alan Watts I look into your eyes and the whole universe not yet born. ~Rumi If you are absolutely without mind, just pure consciousness, time stops completely, disappears, leaving no trace behind. ~Osho Unless your life arises from your spontaneity, from your very empty heart, it is going to be just superficial. And with the superficial you cannot be blissful. ~Osho People who have let go of themselves are so pure that the world cannot harm them. ~Meister Eckhart Only when your hearts are empty of the things of the mind, is there love. Then you will know what it is to love without separation, without distance, without time, without fear. ~Jiddu Krishnamurti To be full of things is to be empty of God. To be empty of things is to be full of God. ~Meister Eckhart The highest truth is to delete, not to add. To get rid of the things you believe in now. So empty yourself out totally and completely. All of your ideas, your feelings, all have to be emptied out of you. When you become totally and completely empty there is nothing you have to do to fill it up again. Emptiness is realization. Emptiness is Brahman. Emptiness is the Self. Emptiness is your real nature. ~Robert Adams If we meet this world unprotected, our heart gets broken over and over and over. This is actually a gift. You let the world touch you, it shatters you open, and it shatters you open, and it shatters you open. And here you are, shining. After our heart is broken open a thousand times and all of the contents emptied out, there’s just this shining left. ~Jeannie Zandi May God empty my very self Of all except His own presence. ~Unknown
