Excerpt About Emptiness
The Completely Empty HeartThe way of poverty is for us to be so empty, not possessing anything, that the ultimate truth, the inner Beloved will find us worthy of beholding it. The inner Beloved is a jealous beloved. It won’t show itself unless there are no other lovers in our heart. When our heart is completely empty, then will it reveal itself as the mystery underlying all of reality. And the way to such inner emptiness is that of poverty, specifically the poverty of spirit.
