The empty pot.
Kabir often returns to the concept of emptiness, Sunya. He finds this emptiness in space itself. But without space, there could not be creation, because space and time are what creation is drawn from. Space is like the loom on which the threads of reality are stretched, and the shuttle goes back and forth, making the fabric that is woven out of vertical and horizontal strands. But always space lies at the heart of everything that we see as form. Without space, there would be no possibility for growth. So all visual or tangible forms are a combination of emptiness, or the boundless, and that which gives boundary, or outer form to this inner space.
