Through refusing to relax into the reality of ‘form is emptiness and emptiness is form’, we create all our misery of obduracy, fear, loneliness, anxiety, and despair. We attempt to split emptiness and form and try to exist only in form. We hang on to form compulsively, convinced that emptiness is our enemy. When we do experience emptiness, we attempt to change things or fill the empty space as quickly as possible to re-establish form. We believe our security lies in form, and only in form. We feel that emptiness undermines form and that this is the reason we experience unhappiness. If we could just get rid of emptiness, everything would be perfect. We associate emptiness with pain and unhappiness and we constantly cling to form references to try and avoid unhappy emptiness experiences. This process of separating emptiness and form is called dualism.
