WAKING, DREAMING, DEEP SLEEP AND THE ABSOLUTE - PART 12
Consciousness comes into being and goes out of being. Sometimes we are conscious and sometimes not. When we are not conscious, it appears to us as a darkness or a blank. But a jnani is aware of himself as neither conscious nor unconscious, but purely aware, a witness to the three states of mind and their contents.
– Nisargadatta Maharaj
Remember, to know Yourself, return to the silence before words.
