An excerpt form “The Illustrated Tao te Ching, chapter 11, (pg 46) “30 Spokes on a Cartwheel; Go towards the hub that is the center – but look there is nothing at the center and that is precisely why it works. If you mold a cup you have to make a hollow; it is the emptiness within that makes it useful. In a house or room it is the empty space that is usable. They all use what they are made of to do what they do but without their nothingness, they would be nothing.
Someone said to me the other day that they felt hollow, empty and useless and that made me remember this quote. If this person is as they felt then just think of the potential for usefulness they have. If one is completely empty there is the opportunity to fill ones’ self with all manner of wonderful things. Things such as love, gratitude, light, promise of wondrous things, empathy, sharing, helpfulness, positives, guidance, grace, kindness, forgiveness, oh yes, did I mention love?
Emptying oneself of all that is defeating and heavy allows room for all that is good, healthy, and useful to ones self and to those around them. So, how about it? Why not empty yourself of the bad attitudes, negativity and other things that keep us mired down and unhappy.
Fill yourself rather with the things of light and love that allow us to soar to our highest manifestation.
Bright Blessings, Chessie
