“Throughout the course of our evolution, it is natural to be more rooted in emptiness, which is the natural state of the soul. As ego unravels to create space for the soul to fully enter, it is common for the unraveling ego to perceive the blossoming of emptiness as depression.”
— Matt Kahn

Emptiness, the void, darkness, nothingness, uncertainty, abyss, existential dread, feeling numb or like “something is missing” are all symptoms of what I call the emptiness practice (also known as “the dark night of the soul”). It is a tough practice. This Emptiness Survival Kit is based on my learnings in the last couple of years and is a summary of key quotes, tips and practices that helped me and I hope help you to get through it. I plan to post daily for a sum total of 42 posts. See you on the other side.
