Stenosis or Kenosis?

Stenosis, a condition affecting the spine, is something you want to avoid but kenosis, an emptying akin to Buddhism’s “self-forgetting” is a state to which many spiritually inclined people aspire to. “Desire “ Buddhists say, “is the beginning of suffering. In meditation one filters out thought. All fine and good but what about all the acts which require agency? Well stop and listen. You have undoubtedly obsessed over the things you want. Has this changed anything?The people around you are going to do what they please. Absent the willful desire to direct traffic, there’s just you. YOU can change you. It’s the one thing you have control over and, by definition, it's an antidote to the pain of wishing to be someone else.
