How can the mind be completely empty?
The intellectual would probably claim, in order to defend his theories, that an empty mind is the same as being in a condition of apathy, idiocy, or what he might call it, and he would probably react instinctively by disclaiming this condition.
But a mind which is extraordinary silent, a mind which isn´t being distracted by its own thought, a mind which is open, can see the problems much more directly and simple. It is in other words immensely reasonable. And it is this ability to see our problems - without in any way letting yourself be distracted - which is the only solution for the Life Artist.
A silent mind, a mind in peace, is a requirement.
