I know I've seen this before, but don't
remember the source. A friend emailed it to me
today, and she also doesn't know it's origin.
In any event, I hope you enjoy and benefit
from (what I consider) its great wisdom.
'When the inner eye is opened, the outer eye
should be sealed to everything, the lips shut
to everything, and the five external senses
should cease to be used and the internal senses
employed in their place such that when the patient
wants to hold something, he should hold it
with his inner hand, when he wants to see something,
he should see it with his inner eye, when he wants
to hear something, he should hear it
with his inner ear, when he wants to smell something,
he should smell it with his inner nose, and his
sense of taste should come from the souls palate....'
