Su Shih (1037-1101)
It can be compared to the man in a dream
Who is still unaware that he is dreaming.
For once he realizes that it is a dream,
His dream will then change and melt away.
I see "myself" and do not see the dream,
And so consider "myself" to be awake
Not knowing what true awakening is.
Neither awakening nor dreaming exists.
