“They say love is blind. And that might be a good metaphor for enlightened beings applying lucid perception. For if you are so in love with yourself, so satiated that you don’t want or need anything, then you are blind to the sentiments of the ousia. You know that they exist, but you overlook them as if you were blind.
Yes, you can still have great empathy for those who are so entangled in the mesh of sentiments, emotions, and ousia. But you, you are immune to it. You are so in love with yourself that you become blind to anything that wants to tell you otherwise.”
