Chinese calligraphy: “Wu (Mu), Nothingness.” In Buddhism and Zen, “Wu”- nothing, gives birth to everything. So the nothingness is the origin of everything. It is full of life.
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche: “Then, having accepted the whole thing, you can begin to relax. You begin to let things fall through you because you realize you have nothing really to lose. If you have anything happen there is something to gain. So that is the starting point where warmth begins to happen, generosity begins to develop. You have nothing to lose, therefore you have nothing to secure about anything at all. And the spontaneous quality of warmth and compassion is the expression of generosity.”
