Form is Emptiness and, Emptiness is form. The usefulness of a cup is in its emptiness. And the value of the house is also in its emptiness. Thus, Emptiness is not empty, and Emptiness is neither permanent nor non-existent.
Emptiness point to nothing exists independently and everything depends on causes and conditions, including your mind. Thus, everything is interdependent and interconnected.
Everything is impermanent but we tend to attach to every event and concept and situation as permanent and independent existence.
The teacup was designed to be empty because the maker wanted it to be able to hold tea. It was the maker’s idea, and it is neither permanent nor non-existent. Tea and water must exist before the concept of a teacup can exist. And when someone decided to place fruit into the teacup, now the teacup becomes a bowl.
Therefore, form is Emptiness and Emptiness is form in the sense that every concept and situation exists as a result of our mind’s perception of it, including our own identity of I, me, and myself. And while this does not imply that it is the reality or the truth, we tend to have a strong attachment to them. Look beyond what’s right in front of you. When you look into a flower, see behind its self-contained existence, you’ll find sunshine, rain, soil, the gardener, and the entire cosmos within it. As a result, learn to observe beyond what we see, such as our current life situation and self-concept.
