Daily Dharma: What is Emptiness?

Today's Daily Dharma from Tricycle:

What is Emptiness?

The expression of emptiness is love, because emptiness means "emptiness of self." When there is no self, there is no other. That duality is created by the idea of self, of I, of ego.When there's no self, there is a unity, a communion. And without the thought of "I'm loving someone," love becomes the natural expression of that oneness.

~ Joseph Goldstein, The Experience of Insight; from Everyday Mind, a Tricycle book edited by Jean Smith.
