Emptiness includes the sun, moon, stars, and planets, the great earth, mountains and rivers, all trees and grasses, bad people and good people, bad things and good things, heaven and hell; they are all in the midst of emptiness. 

​“莫闻吾说空,便即著空。第一莫著空,若空心静坐,即著无记空。善知识,世界虚空,能含万物色像。日月星宿、山河大地、泉源溪涧、草木丛林、恶人善人、天堂地狱,一切大海、须弥诸山,总在空中。世人性空,亦复如是。善知识,自性能含万法是大,万法在诸人性中。若见一切人恶之与善,尽皆不取不舍,亦不染著,心如虚空,名之为大,故曰摩诃。”

“The capacity of the mind is broad and huge, like the vast sky. Do not sit with a mind fixed on emptiness. If you do, you will fall into a neutral kind of emptiness. Emptiness includes the sun, moon, stars, and planets, the great earth, mountains and rivers, all trees and grasses, bad people and good people, bad things and good things, heaven and hell; they are all in the midst of emptiness. The emptiness of human nature is also like this.”
