"Everything without exception, everything is that tai so yu: absolute, form, activity. Instead of activity we could simply call it aliveness. There's no exception. This doesn't mean everything is good; it simply means everything is empty by nature. By nature, everything is that unconditioned no-thing that cannot be grasped. We don't have to find excuses for things out of a misguided compassion because we want to see everything as nice. Not everything is nice. Everything, by nature, is empty, that's all. In that emptiness, nothing is different from what you are. The expression of that insight is called compassion." - from Infinite Ocean by Ursula Jarand
