Emptiness, suffused with intelligence (knowing), can be a useful pointer or description, but remember–the description can never be the described. It is a valuable pointer only if in looking or seeing there is a recognising of the actuality of this natural emptiness.

Every thing comes from, appears in, and returns to this natural emptiness. The coming and going of things is transience, but the cognising emptiness, being empty, does not come and go. Being empty, it is of itself no thing. It can never be filled or emptied of things, for things appearing in emptiness have no independent nature of themselves, and so in reality things are the same emptiness–appearing as other. Every thing perceived is emptiness.

There can only be a problem if things–including the so called ‘seer’–are believed to be other than this natural emptiness“.
