A silver guide to unconsciousness

The trick to unconsciousness is knowing when you've achieved it. It's like balancing on a tightrope - one minute you're awake and the next you're not. Everyone wants to know what happens on the highwire. But what happens on the highwire often stays on the highwire. The tricky thing - to maintain enough wakefuless to experience falling out of wakefulness. Your feet doing their best to swallow the rope dividing light and dark like two carpet snakes, your body perfectly balanced, half and half weighted, moving back and forth, back and forth, almost rocking like to keep your weight distributed above your left foot then your right, coming and going, going and coming and coming and coming ... but the next thing you're swimming up from the weightless dark of unconscious samsara towards moksha, towards the light and it's another day
