Natural wakefulness

File:Steps down from the Citadel, Herefordshire Beacon - geograph.org.uk - 1384844.jpg

What then is our path, and what the manner of our flight? This is not a journey for the feet; Feet bring us only from land to land; nor need you think of a coach or a ship to carry you away;

All this order of things you must set aside and refuse to look at: Instead, you must close the eyes and call upon another vision which is to be waked within you, a vision, the birth-right of all, which few turn to use.

Plotinus, philosopher 204 – 270, The Enneads, 1.6.
