When I practice mindfulness, there is usually an awareness of thoughts rather than an emptiness or blank. Normally, I get identified with thoughts. But in a mindful state, there is no such identification. Yet the thoughts are there, lots of them. There is no empty state, totally free of thoughts.
This has been my experience so far. Others can share their insights.
