Pure consciousness is the purest state of mind. When the mind becomes a witness and no experiences or impressions remains on the surface of the mind, you experience the mind as pure consciousness. Pure consciousness is a state of mind, where it acts like a mirror.
Anything that comes in front of the mind either from the external world or internal world, it reflects as it is.
The mind as we all know, thinks, imagine things, forms perception, stores experiences, and impressions, and allows us to experience the external reality of life.
The process of mind takes place on its surface, but when you take your attention beyond the surface of the mind, you experience the mind which is absolutely pure. That is the state of pure consciousness.
In the state of pure consciousness, the movement of life energy (spirit) is easily read all the time, and even the source of life is reflected in pure consciousness. Pure consciousness can be experienced, once the dormant energy gets awakened in the body.
It’s the dormant energy that ties the mind in a way, whereby the mind remains engaged in the external cycle of life.
But once the dormant energy gets unlocked inside, you free yourself from the external cycle of life and a new reality is experienced both inside and outside.
The mind is covered with different layers of experiences and impressions of life, that makes us hard to perceive life in its natural form. That’s the reason the mind remain engaged in the life cycle of past, present, and future.
The natural process of life is eternal and remains the same, but as the humans understanding gets clear with the natural process of life, he begins to align his life’s effort in developing the deeper understanding of life.
The life transcends at a level of perception. Your perception moves deeper with your understanding. When you break the surface reality of the mind, your perception to view life gets deeper. You perceive life closer to the point of consciousness.
It’s the mind that perceives both the external and internal world. The senses act as a window for the mind to perceive the external reality and the sensation allows you to experience the external life.
In the external reality, you work to create comfortable life, but it’s the inner mind that does all the work. If you don’t understand the nature of the mind, then rather creating the comfortable life outside, you add mess to your life.
“The mind has a capacity to expand, provided you work on it, and make daily effort to improve your perception towards life.”
The perception towards life is formed with the idea’s and thoughts that you carry from the past. If you allow the new experiences from outside, to become a part of your life, you can gradually improve your perception towards life.
You expand in the physical world, according to the capacity of your mind. If the mind expands, you develop the long vision for life, and you take bold steps, following the larger vision for life.
When you perceive the world through the subtle reality, you connect with the world through thoughts and emotions and get less intimidated by the physical reality.
Physical reality is the manifestation of the subtle world, i.e. thoughts, emotions, and energy. When you connect with your thoughts and emotions, it’s easier to perceive the thoughts and emotions of others.

The mind holds the capacity to transcend itself from the physical consciousness to the subtle and from subtle to pure consciousness.
The meditation is a tool that can help you to transcend from one consciousness to other. All it requires is little practice of meditation on everyday basis and you can notice the changes in your perception in a few days of time.
Your ego or individual identity gets developed in the mind with your identifications with different activities of the mind. You identify yourself with your perception, thoughts, imaginations, dreams, desires, and everything that goes into your mind.
This identification allows you to form the identity inside, and you start perceiving your life out of that identification. The process of meditation teaches you to detach yourself from all the identities, so that you can perceive life out of utmost clarity.
With the inward attention, you can look into everything that goes in your mind. This you can practice during the process of meditation.
If you can practice keeping your attention inward on a daily basis, slowly your attention move deeper and deeper into the subtle part of the mind. More the truth of the mind revealed to you, lesser you identify with the things of the mind.
The pure state of mind doesn’t have its nature but is a reflective mirror. When the mind becomes the witness, it doesn’t have anything to reflect of its own, and thus, it reflects what comes in front of the mirror.
The experience of pure consciousness is just like a reflective mirror that reflects both the external and internal reality in its natural form.
With pure consciousness, you see the whole and doesn’t perceive the things in a part. Whenever you come across different situations or people in your life, you see the things in a part and not as a whole. Any situation of life is only a part of the whole and it’s only when you see the situation with its past, present and future, you see it as a whole.
All the religion and spiritual organization carry its own method to improve your consciousness towards life. All the sages develop their own path to reach the peak of the consciousness.
There might be thousand and one ways to improve your consciousness, but there are only three things on which you have to work upon to reach the peak of your consciousness. Body, mind, and emotions serves you to connect with the center of pure consciousness.
Any form of physical exercise serves the body to remove the negative toxins from the physical and subtle body and helps you to raise the energy level.
The mind and heart can be expanded through, daily knowledge, and practice of meditation.
A daily habit of physical exercise, meditation, and reading serves you to expand your body, mind, and heart and brings you closer to the state of pure consciousness.
