My boyfriend, who is a buddhist, tells me that he wants his heart to be empty. I have difficulties understanding this. I thought filling your heart with love would be more desireable than having an empty heart. And if he achieves his gold, how can he still really love me (which he tells me he does, and he wants to spend his life with me). Does buddhists choose their lifepartners from other criterias? Have I misunderstood the meaning of an empty heart? If so, will someone please help me understand? Lisa.
