emptiness is the abscence rather than presence. all prescence is compounded, only abscence is non compounded. all attainments are compounded. seek abscence rather than presence and relinquishing rather than aquiring. that which is aquired is compounded, perhaps a fabrication of the mind. the mind spinning webs such as fearlessness or painlessness. these things must occur naturally and not be a fabrication.
you can taste emptiness through neti neti.... not this, not this. or no, no. or through 'beyond, beyond'.
is it love? no, no. is it peace? no no. is it etc etc etc. no no. go beyond beyond all names and all forms. then you can taste emptiness.

tasteless, formless, smellless,
it has all forms all tastes and all smells.
in any matters of importance. dont rely on me. i may not know what i am talking about. take what i say as mere speculation. i am not ordained. nor do i have a formal training. i do believe though that if i am wrong on any point. there are those on this site who i hope will quickly point out my mistakes.
