Again, I love your writing. I thought you might enjoy this: “Even as a large fish moves along both banks of a river, the hither and the further, so also this person moves along both these states, the state of dream (or sleep) and the state of waking.”
— Bṛhad-āraṇyaka Upaniṣad4.3.18
I am finishing the writing of a book on consciousness and the concept of “Self,” right now. I am so glad to have discovered a kindred soul here!
