It’s the space within the pot that makes the pot
Otherwise, it would be just pottery with no pot
It’s the silence between the notes that make music
Otherwise, it would be just noise
It’s the emptiness within your house stone walls that make your home,
Otherwise, it would be just another rock boulder
It’s the space within the cage that makes the cage,
the silence within that brings peace
We have this emptiness within that hides in consciousness and intelligence
We suppress it with noise and clutter
Learning to silence the noise illuminates the inner light
Embracing that we can only fill an empty cup,
allows us to empty ourselves of unwanted baggage,
making space for all the values and possibilities.

It is so important to recognize, as you pointed out, that not all “empty space” is bad! Sometimes people associate empty with negativity.
Yes, sometimes, it’s not a bad thing other times it’s a passing phase
