Spirit and energy should be clear as the night air

by Sun Buer

English version by Thomas Cleary
Original Language Chinese

Spirit and energy should be clear as the night air;
In the soundless is the ultimate pleasure all along.
Where there's reality in illusion
Is illusion in reality,
For the while playing with magical birth
In the silver bowl.

-- from Immortal Sisters: Secret Teachings of Taoist Women, Edited by Thomas Cleary
