Absence of Emptiness


A tree is not what you see.
Your view is but a projection
Of your mind.

In Buddhism, nothing has an “inherent existence.” If it did, it could not have either a beginning or an end. It could never change. Yet, humans often “concretize” other people and things, viewing them as if they were not subject to change. This view is not beneficial as it’s a distortion of reality.
