Form and Emptiness


The world of form is always changing…
holding on to anything
becomes holding on to nothing,
because nothing can be held for long–
it all must change.
Form is therefore emptiness.
What we call one thing
quickly becomes another
in the blink of an eye.
What we perceive as emptiness,
becomes form
as we assign to it qualities:
good, bad, right, wrong,
male, female, night, day.
If we could befriend the emptiness
we wouldn’t need to tell stories about it.
Can you define the undefinable?
Luckily you don’t need to.
Just take a few deep breaths
and feel your aliveness coursing through,
form and formlessness holding hands
on the shores of eternity.
