Some Zen teachers said that emptiness was broken into pieces in their satori. E.g.The cup fell to the ground.The sound was perfectly clear.Emptiness was smashed to pieces.The mad mind abruptly came to a halt. And some say that a necessary stage in our practice should be breaking emptiness apart. Does that simply mean that emptiness states should be left behind or is there some cue in their words about pieces or parts of emptiness?

That is just an empty expression. This kind of conecptual approach will get you no where. Even to sit with such ideas will bring forth nothing. You need to become that reality right in front of you, not separated from it the slightest and become that living energy.
