This one is definitely a puzzlement for me. How does one empty one’s own heart and mind, much less those of others? As I continue to seek the “real me”, which is not a part of my human form that includes even the concepts of “mind” and “heart”, I’m learning to empty or allow it all to fade into the background. Since we are all interconnected, as I empty myself it will affect those around me—leading by example in the truest sense.
As we let go of our ambitions, first and foremost the need to be right, we strengthen the “bones” or the constructs of our everyday walking around lives. No longer needing to be tallest, we grow taller; no longer needing to be fastest, we run faster; no longer needing to be smartest, we become wiser.
