my journal this morning. empty of words. but, the emptiness allows for creativity. anything can be written. the lines are just waiting to be filled. it’s funny when you think about it. when something is empty, perhaps it’s actually just full of possibility.
“You must know nothing before you can learn something, and be empty before you can be filled. Is not the emptiness of the bowl what makes it useful? As for laws, a parrot can repeat them word for word. Their spirit is something else again. As for governing, one must first be lowest before being highest.”
― Lloyd Alexander, The Remarkable Journey of Prince Jen
