Jesus said: The kingdom of the [Father] is like a woman carrying a jar full of meal. While she was walking [on a] distant road, the handle of the jar broke (and) the meal poured out behind her on the road. She was unaware, she had not noticed the misfortune. When she came to her house, she put the jar down (and) found it empty.
The universe is full of zeros, many emptinesses, which make numerous creations possible. Our beginning is nothing, zero, and emptiness. Essentially, a good life does not depend on how much we have but how well we can maintain a zero status on life. Even a good creative writing begins by zero, as I experience in my writing career. Here zero means to delete all previous writings.
Laozi, sage from ancient China, who is believed to have written Dao De Jing, strikes a similar tone of the teaching with Jesus.
Dao De Jing 9
Dao De Jing 15
In a way, learning is not to accumulate knowledge but to unlearn what was learned before and to prepare a zero status in our mind.
