actually it isnt even void like, though initially it can seem to be.It is not a "void" - it is void-ness
on examination, it is not a void, nor is it nothing... it is 'this'. everything is 'this'.
mind is this, own nature is this, subject and object are merged as one in 'this'.
master keizan said "between life and death there is only 'this'." i agree with him.
sound is 'this', form is this, apparent emptiness is 'this'.
initially one thinks that one has emptiness, actually on examination it is not emptiness, nor is it a void. it has the feeling of 'this'ness.
i know a guy called Master Best, and have argued with him over the issue of emptiness, he has always asserted that there is no emptiness. i had disagreed, now i know that there is only 'this'. this may sometimes seem like voidness, but it is not.
taste this for yourself. its easy. this is it.
best wishes, White Lotus.
i will have a cup of tea this evening.
