Emptiness: one of the functions of emptiness is to free us from agendas and categories.
How can an apple become a pear? It can’t. However both are fruit so they can be the same, in being both fruit. We talk about a human being becoming a buddha but how is this possible? How can a human being become a buddha? It can’t. However both are in the open dimension of being, so they can be the same in their nature, the open dimension of being.
This is quite important: when we see they are both fruit, we see the emptiness of each. Categories set up oppositions whereas emptiness allows everything to be the same—not the same on the level of manifestation (apples and pears, human beings and buddhas) but they are the same in their nature.
