Be Empty

If you say “I am empty,” the “I am” is there, and the “I” cannot be empty. So emptiness cannot be claimed. No one can say, “I am empty,” just as no one can say, “I am humble.” If you say, “I am humble,” you are not. Who claims this humility? Humbleness cannot be claimed. If you are humble, you are humble, but you cannot say it. Not only can you not say it, you cannot feel that you are humble because the very feeling will give birth to the ego again.

Be empty, but don’t think that you are empty otherwise you have deceived yourself.
