Post-meditation is an important time for a meditator. A powerful method for keeping meditative composure throughout the day is to be mindful that everything experienced is dreamlike and illusory.
Masters of illusion are meditators who can move through the world while staying detached and still keeping their compassion for all the dream-like characters that they meet.
To dwell in the Unborn was Zen Master Bankei’s advice for avoiding straying into the illusory nature of the world, remaining in that which does not arise, as a personal experience of naturalness and ease. ‘Nothing else needs to be practiced’, he would say. ‘No need to follow the dream, simply remain in the unborn.’
