Background

A description of the experience

Neiye – Verse 1 (Verse 1, tr. Roth 1999: 46)

The vital essence of all things:
It is this that brings them to life.
It generates the five grains below
And becomes the constellated stars above.
When flowing amid the heavens and earth,
We call it ghostly and numinous.
When stored within the chests of human beings,
We call them sages.
