There is no such thing as a sustained vacuum.We are already empty… "without form and void"until the word “Let there be light” starts a new creation within through the Logos, and a relationship with Him. It is about fulness, given by grace, and receiving it with thankfulness, even in the midst of difficulty. It is not by looking in the mirror of what “I dont want to be”. It is by looking in the eyes of the one who “Is Who He Is” and receiving His fulness via His love.
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. Col 2:10
For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. John 1:16
IMO the destruction of the ego only occurs through the impartation of the divine nature- by grace, through faith, in fellowship with the Father and the Son through the Spirit.
Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, let us run with patience the race set before us.
I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
