This article discuss about descriptive terms related with “perceptions” in the Chuangzi, such as “Wu Qing” (Apathy), “Ai Le Bu Ru” (Sorrow and pain do not find their place) and “Xing Ru Gao Mu; Xin Ru Si Hui” (Body as dry wood; mind as dead ashes). By analyzing ways that these terms describe the negation of perceptions, aside from experiential aspects of moving toward enlightenment, one may argue that these terms could also be the beginning of physical practice. To sum up the discussion of perception-related descriptions in the Chuangzi and theorize them, the process of these practices could be explained as follows: First, with the practice of deliberately curtailing of externally-stimulated perceptions, we may temporarily halt the operation of rational knowledge. Then we may reach new level of perception without the interferences of knowledge systems. Adepts who have accomplished these practices are called “Zhen Ren” (pure men, or enlightened beings).
