Talking with my Guru

NOTHING AND EMPTINESS

G: What exactly do you mean by emptiness?
Me: I mean nothing.
G: Why then are we wasting time discussing it?

Take your tiny Tao shears
and snip emptiness out of Webster’s
and heave it into the void.  It’s another
self-serving euphemism like time
or collateral damage

Cut wood, draw water
and stop sound-biting things to death
and travel light (and lightly)
till no sun remains

nothing and emptiness
are for advanced students
with nothing to lose
and nothing to gain
