Zen Mind Spray- Embracing Emptiness
Many of us are challenged by empty spaces. Empty walls and rooms automatically have us planning what to add into the open space. Free time in a schedule is excruciating for some, because slowing down means the thoughts and emotions we are avoiding will catch up with us. But within that empty void are all the possibilities of the next moment in time, and our next chapter. The tendency is to create a narrative for everything we think and feel. But the need to define what we are feeling closes the door to the birth of something brand new, and we cannot define what has not yet formed. This is also the goal of meditation...to clear the mind and create a blank canvas for our next masterpiece!
