Relaxation in the Absence of Thoughts

Yutang Lin

Suddenly freed from all thoughts in quietude,
Clear awareness without any mental activity.
Subtle tensions became apparent and noticed,
Then loosened without effort until relaxation.


All of a sudden mind freed from thinking, and only clear awareness remained. Subtle tensions in various parts of the body that were not noticeable, one by one became apparent and noticed. Upon being noticed they began to loosen on their own until the tension is no more.
