The obvious:
"Dried shit" is empty of inherent nature, it is shunya.
"Dried shit" consists of chemical substances, that are empty in themselves.
Chemical substances have no emotional content. They have no emotional reactions.
Emotional reactions exist in your mind. They belong to the perceiver.
"Dried shit" is emptiness. It is your own mind's property that you see, if you fail to see it as emptiness.

It's not so difficult to be a good person, but to be genuinely kind takes courage because it can be downright dangerous.
