The problems we face in life, which seem so solid and real, will disappear like last night’s bad dream when we apply Buddha’s teachings on emptiness, the way things actually exist as opposed to the way they appear. This view of emptiness, the dream-like nature of things, teaches us that we can overcome our fears and gradually become more peaceful, flexible, and creative. Eventually we will discover a profound inner peace in which our mind becomes permanently free from all distress and negativity.
