Q. If everything is empty, why don’t people look at me in that way?
A. What matters now is not whether or not others see you as empty, but whether you yourself can see things in that way. If you can see things as empty, you will not care about what others think of you, because you will know that not only they but also their way of seeing you is empty.
However, if you can’t see things as empty, you will still have problems even if all other people around you can see everything including you as empty. You might still be discontent even if they see you as empty. When you are hungry, you yourself should eat food in order to meet your hunger. No matter how much food others may eat, you can’t avoid feeling hungry unless you yourself try food.
