“The perfume of lucid sight”

 

“It is understood that
Sleep is the desire for
A period of rest
For the body.
It is less understood that
Sleep is the desire for
A period of rest
Away from the body.”

“What constitutes the sense of ‘I am this’ is
Constantly changing while
What constitutes the sense of ‘I am’ is unmoving.
The shift in the attention from
The former to the latter is
The perfume of lucid sight.”

—Wu Xin (Wu Hsin, 无心)

    1. I agree, it’s interesting to think that we need time “away” from our bodies when we sleep to recharge our spiritual batteries. We spend too much time in this 3D world, and our souls crave to be free and immersed in the love of God.<3
