Emptiness or voidness in spiritual contexts can be translated into shunya meaning space, with no boundaries and as man's ultimate goal. Buddha says when you become shunya, when you become absolutely nothing, then you cultivate insight that leads to wisdom and inner peace.
"The Deeper your creation, The greater will be your Emptiness afterwards. The greater the storm, the greater will be the silence that comes in its wake." - Osho
Many creative people assert that after they have completed an artistic piece or indulged in a creative act, they feel spent, and empty because they have given up their absolute identity to create. A Houston-based non-profit theatre group has given this concept of "shunya" a different tangent. They say, “shunya is not the end, but the beginning. The goal is to become empty so that something new can come out of it.”
