The Finesse of Emptiness

*---- ----*


There are times when we can sense that the internal content or external circumstances will become overwhelming. Trying to control every aspect of it will only sweep us away further. The situation can instead be made auspicious by releasing the need to control, assenting to higher principles of intuitive truth, and remaining receptive to receiving and utilizing help.


When making efforts toward the development or creation of something—whether it’s a work of art, a business, the life of a child or even your own lifetime—self-importance is when the individual makes herself integral to that development or it is not allowed to develop without her influence. That is aggrandizement and replication of the ego. To engage instead without the aim of benefiting oneself (whether materially or in our identification) and without making oneself necessary, allows for a selfless type of engagement which brings a level of life to that production which is beyond self.


This shift is the difference between being overwhelmed and directing with finesse. Necessity does not include the preferences and comfort of the personality. To work beyond these is to approach the power and self which is emptiness.
