Before sleeping – Antes de dormirse


 
If we really know how to go to sleep we will know how to die. We will be already familiar with dying, already familiar with the dissolution of the born. To do this, one must, before going to sleep, lay aside all qualifications. We must become as naked psychologically as we are physically. This means that we put aside all opinions, thoughts, worries, ideas before we sleep. It is an offering of all that we are not. In letting go there is an expansion of mind and body and in all expansion is the forefelling of reality, our globality. This should be done each time we sleep until we find that, before the body wakes up in the morning, we are. Presence is already there.
           Jean Klein – The Book of Listening

Si realmente sabemos como ponernos a dormir, sabremos como morir. Estaremos familiarizados con el proceso de morir, familiarizados con  la disolución de lo nacido. Para hacer esto, antes de dormirse se debe dejar a un lado toda cualificación. Deberemos estar tan desnudos psicológicamente como físicamente. Esto quiere decir que ponemos a un lado toda opinión, pensamiento, preocupación, ideas, antes de sumirnos en el sueño. Es un ofrecimiento de todo lo que no somos. En este abandono hay una expansión de la mente y el cuerpo, y en toda expansión hay una anticipación de la realidad, nuestra globalidad. Esto debería hacerse cada vez que vayamos a dormir, hasta que veamos que antes de despertarnos por la mañana ya somos. La presencia ya está ahí.
