Metaphors

A beautiful metaphor from the Teaching;


The restful alertness of perceptual openness is like an ocean in these respects. It is like an ocean in that it is vast in extent. It is like an ocean in that it is not solid. It is unobstructed and profoundly deep. It is like an ocean in that it is immeasurable, impossible to fathom intellectually. It is like an ocean in that it is a single expanse and unsullied by extremes. It is like an ocean in that it is a spacious expanse, unimpeded and naturally clear. It is like an ocean in that the waves of perception are naturally free.
