Pure consciousness is the state of mind. The state of mind, where you are free from all the mind activities.
The nature of the mind is to think thoughts, imagine things, accumulate experiences, and impressions and create a circle of thoughts out of it.
Although the mind functions with its thoughts process, you have the state of pure consciousness, which is beneath the functions of the mind.
The functions of the mind such as thinking, imagination, visualization, dreaming, forming desires, creating the perception, forming perspective, only remains at the surface.
When you simply observe life and take your attention inward, slowly you slip back beneath the normal functions of your mind, to experience the state, which is absolutely pure in its nature.
The state of consciousness is a pure state of mind. You don’t find yourself thinking thoughts nor observing the dreams and desires rather you experience the silent space of the mind.
In meditation or different forms of yoga, we make efforts to take our attention inward. Once you reach the no-mind state, nothing remains for you to do anything, rather you completely surrender yourself to the moment.
You yourself cannot go beyond to experience the ultimate truth. All the ego or sense of self, has to be dropped, before you experience the state of pure consciousness.
With the experience of pure consciousness, you realize that your efforts are limited. You cannot achieve everything with the effort. You have to adapt the path of surrender.
If you choose to move beyond this life, you have to reach the state of formlessness and effortlessness. Anything with the mind needs efforts and when you are done with the efforts, you have to surrender yourself, to allow the experience to happen.
The experience of consciousness is full of bliss, and when you come down from this state, all the mysteries of the mind and life are revealed.

Your life on the existence comes out of your mind. When you understand your mind, you understand the life on earth, as life is manifested in the subtle form in your mind.
With the understanding of the mind, you understand life and the process of life. When you understand the process of life, you don’t fight with it, but you align every yourself with it.
All the pain and suffering of life is due to resistance. Wisdom teaches you to accept life out of understanding. There is a process out of which life takes place and the process happens within your mind.
The life of the mind starts with the impressions and experiences of life. The mind accumulates impressions and experiences from the outside world through the senses.
The impressions and experiences further create thoughts and emotions and these thoughts and emotions turn into energy, which results in your response or action in the outside world.
Life doesn’t come out of the only action, but your thoughts, emotions, and energy equally contribute to creating your life. All the life situations, people, and experiences of life depend on what you carry inside.
Your response to the situation or with people depends on your inner state. Your choice and decisions of life depend on the experiences of the past.
Life has its own way to function. Time and space don’t matter for life. If you think the thought or feel something or act towards some project, the manifestation of it, depends not only on your action but also the time it takes for the existence to manifest your desires and bring it into your life.
You get what you ask for, but the time and space are not defined. It takes time depending on the desires, and if you are determined to fulfill your desire, life too serves you to fulfill your desire.
Each one is responsible for his own life on earth. The best thing about life is that you have a choice, power to make decision power and will to change the direction of your life, at any moment of time.

There are three ways to go with life.
The first one is to live life with absolute attention to the outside life. The outside world attracts you, and you create your life out of what you see outside. All the physical beauty in the form of a human or an object holds its attraction.
When you live with outward attention, there is only one way that exists for you to fulfill your desires, i.e through physical effort. You live outside and you have no clue what’s happening in your inner world.
The second part of life is when you connect with your inner world. The world of energy, thoughts, and emotions. You live inside out. You don’t follow the outside life, but you follow your inner world.
When you live inside out, your interest remains in living life and not chasing life. You follow your heart, develop your talent, use your skill, and create life out of it.
Here you are more creatively satisfied with your life. You are near to your source, and you look for inner satisfaction and not outside accomplishment.

The third part of life is when you understand the process of life after self-realization. Then it doesn’t matter either you live materialistic life or be more creative with your life, you always remain above it. None of the worlds remain more or less important to you and you live to serve the need of the moment.
The human strive for two things, meaning and happiness. The people who are engaged in the material world look for happiness while the people who follow their hearts look for meaning.
There is no higher experience other than the experience of pure consciousness. You fill yourself with the highest wisdom and bliss of life.
“When you figure out with life that, there is nothing to figure out, you reach to the state of ultimate experience. But this has to come out of your personal experience.
With the experience of pure consciousness, you realize that life comes out of the process, and the natural process is all about the evolution of the body, mind & heart.
The body, mind, and heart evolve with the experiences of life, and with the time you move deeper into your experience. When you intend to rise higher than the life of the mind, you realize the higher self in you.
All the complications with life happen out of beliefs, impressions, and past experiences of life. It’s good to learn and grow from the experiences of the past, but if your actions are the same as it was in the past than you don’t create anything fresh with your life. You don’t innovate or be creative with your life, rather you simply repeat the same process of life.
Pure consciousness teaches you to be more present at the moment and act out of spontaneity. To change your future, you have to make conscious choices and decisions at the moment.
With the choices and decisions in the present moment, you create a better future for the self, and life out of pure consciousness teaches you to get detached from all your actions whether it’s of the past, present, or future.
