My question: Is there any fear of grasping at clear light? Is this even possible?

In the encounter with emptiness the "natural" tendency is to project either good feelings (desire/attachment) or bad stuff (anger/aversion) or to drift into unconsciousness (ignorance). Can awareness grasp at itself? I guess that would be to conceptualise the self and miss the encounter entirely.
That is sort of what I thought.

you might become light headed.
The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally.
