Nothing – is it emptiness?

Pretty much everyone has happy days, blah days and sad or mad days.  Some days have all those emotions and more, even for good reason.  In that respect, I am just like everyone else.

Sooner or later, most people experience forms of emptiness and of nothingness.  There are a variety of kinds of emptiness; they range from the sublime and philosophical to the carnal and to emotional voids.

These typically feel dangerous to whoever is experiencing them, and in some cases they even really are.  Some types of emptiness go hand in hand with sorrow or emotional shut down.  The question that emerges is: does it need to be healed?  If so, can it be and if not, then what is it and how should it be handled?

Even so, there are other occasions when emptiness and even uneasy perceptions of nothingness prove to be very healthy and are a stepping stone to new found happiness in life.  In fact, most of the time, it just signals some type of space – between interactions, or between jobs or a sense of loss associated with a change in stage of life and can happen with a marriage, or a birth as well as with losses such as death or divorce or job loss.
