Luminous perception is both a result and a fact. In the practice, it is the result of establishing a peaceful abiding, then “noticing the usually not noticed.” Off of the cushion, as one notices more of the wonders of life, then the sparkle of energy and the radiance that is everywhere, all of the time, can be brought to one’s awareness. The luminous nature of reality becomes self-evident. This is an ongoing awakening to life.
The lightness and vibrancy that one perceives increases the vibrancy and brightness of mind, demeanor, creative inspiration, and problem solving.
