Recently, there was some time spent with a person that exuded emptiness. When it was mentioned to this person, they did not seem to be aware of it and even seemed slightly intimidated by the mention of it. Yet it was noticeably there, in that moment, the person was empty of theirself, of thoughts, of noise and activity.
There was just this strong presence of Still/Emptiness.
This morning during Meditation, this Emptiness was quite apparent during the first few minutes and the thought appeared to write about it and also to see if one could point towards it. There is a song by Dave Matthews called “The Space Between” and it showed up as a way to point. The lyrics point towards the Stillness/Emptiness between actions, between words, between thoughts and that is what is hiding waiting for you.
When the song stops, that is the Emptiness, that moment between sound and no sound, the Emptiness is there between the thoughts, when there is a pause. The longer the pauses/stop … the more awareness of the Emptiness that one is in.
Between our words is the Emptiness and yet everything appears in the Emptiness, but it is overlooked because the attention is on the thoughts, the sounds, the activities.
To be one that is Empty; is not dullness, it is not lifeless, it is absolute complete fullness. No Space that needs to be filled up with noise and activity and yet all appears in it.
Begin to place the attention on the Space between.
