Emptiness is the essence of beings

"Emptiness is the essence of beings. It is this emptiness which allows us to manifest. Emptiness is the most salient quality of what we are-it is the ground of being. Energetic being arises from this emptiness as the play of energy, and material being arises from this energy as the play of form."
