The no-mind state is when you don’t have any thoughts on your mind. It can be achieved through different ways. Many times, when you have all you wish to have in your life, you reach to the no-mind state.
You already have everything that you need, but still, you don’t have the sense of fulfillment. The mind is empty but along with it, heart too is empty.
Out of your efforts, you have achieved everything, but still, for the little happiness, you have to search outside. Your life’s decision still depends on others.
The no-mind state is an end to the path of existence, and from this state, the new world begins of the higher reality. Your life is no more than your thoughts, impressions and daily experiences of life. When you reach to the no-mind state, you slip back beneath the things of the mind.
The higher reality is full of bliss and wisdom. When your inner energy transcends the body, heart, and mind and rises higher above the no-mind state, you experience bliss and wisdom.
Nothing lacks with the blissful state, rather you add something to life with each passing day. You move out, not to receive but to contribute to life. You are overfilled with joy and happiness and you can’t sustain it to yourself, rather you would like to share with others.
Whenever you acquire anything from outside, you hesitate to give, because it’s not natural. You have acquired from outside. When you acquire something from inside, you are more willing to share with the world.
The effort is the same or actually more, but anything which is natural expands out of its nature, while the achievements from the outside life, needs efforts to move forward.
“Anything which is natural expands out of natural law, and the thing which is artificial remains stagnant.”
When you see the outside world, you see the physical manifestation of life as a stagnant entity and the subtle world of thoughts, emotions, and energy which allows the manifestation of a physical world, constantly flowing. You can direct your subtle world, just with your intentions.
When you reach to the no-mind state, and still you miss the blissful experience, then one thing still remains for you to transcend, and i.e. your no-mind state. Patience is the key to transcend your no-mind state. The scariest things in the world is an emptiness. People get scared in the empty house, empty place and anything that seems hollow.
The enlightened being or the mystic is the one, who knows how to transcend the emptiness into a blissful experience. The no-mind state is pure emptiness. Nothing remains in you. You are absolutely empty inside. This ain’t “Nothingness”, that has been described in Buddha’s literature.
Nothingness is full of wisdom and bliss. You are flowing with the pure joy and ecstasy from within. In this state, you have nowhere to go and nothing to achieve, as what you are looking for outside, is overflowing from within.
The life on earth understands the language of love and bliss. No knowledge without love or bliss can serve you in life. The knowledge, that triggers joy, happiness, love, and bliss into your heart is the only useful knowledge, and rest are merely empty words.
The feelings and emotions are created from the thoughts and images of the mind. When your mind reaches to the no-mind state, your heart too remains hollow, without any feelings and emotions.
“The mind creates life, but the life becomes alive with the feelings and emotions. The heart is the bridge between the life of the outside world and your mind.”
The wisdom of life gives you an understanding of life. On this earth, all you can do is understand life. Everything already exists for you; all you have to do is, understand life and align yourself with it.
Things already exist. All the creation and innovation is the mixture of inside as well as outside life. From the inner world, you receive thoughts and emotions, while in the outside world, you get the things required for physical manifestation.
Look at any innovation. For e.g. Air-craft. Aircraft was an idea of Wright Brothers. The idea took the shape in the physical form, while the physical component was used from outside, and then aligned with the natural laws of life. An idea from inside, and the components from outside, aligned with the natural laws of existence to create an aircraft.
The same applies to creativity. You have an image in your mind. You take paint and brush and put all your images on the paper.
The imagination of the subtle world comes alive with the paint, brush, and paper from the outside world. In creativity, your subtle world is prominent, while in innovation the substance of the outside world is more prominent.
The purpose of the creativity and innovation is to bring your inner imagination and idea outside, by making use of both the physical as well as the subtle world.

Things already exist in your subtle world of mind and heart and the components are available outside to give it a physical form.
It takes time to manifest anything in this world, as it takes time for you to understand the natural laws that unite both the subtle as well as the physical world and create a new reality.
Once you bring your subtle as well as a physical world together, following the natural laws of existence, you manifest things on earth, to which the world termed as creativity or innovation.
The mystic or the enlightened one’s knows the natural laws of life to transcend their body, mind, and heart into pure consciousness. No straight path is available for anyone.
Everyone has to go through the process of trial and error before something significant could be achieved in life. The trial and errors are the process of experimenting with life and gaining experiences out of it.
Each one has to go through his own share of experiments or practices to learn the necessary lessons out of it.
You cannot understand something without an experience. It may happen that few people understand things from one or two experience, while others may take several experiences of life, to understand things, but you just can’t understand something without going through personal experience.
When you embrace the emptiness of life, you rise above it. If you run away, you miss the opportunity to rise higher, at the same time, if you embrace every part of life, you allow yourself to fly higher in your life. When you surrender, something within you, rise higher to give you the most beautiful experience of life.
To experience the bliss and wisdom, you have to absolutely empty yourself from inside. Once you are empty yourself from inside, the next step is to wait. When you patiently wait in utter relaxation, things start to happen. You have to allow the things to happen. Force is not the way, rather you have to wait patiently to allow the things to happen.
The process of transcendence happens, when you learn to drop yourself completely. You can realize the self beyond the no-mind state. Everything is empty inside, but what remains in you is you. When even you lose yourself in you, you experience the true self. You experience the truth of life.
Unless your intent is, to be absolutely one with the existence you cannot experience the ultimate. Your effort’s count, till you empty yourself from inside. Once you are completely emptied from inside, all the inner, as well as outside efforts, are left behind and all you can do in those moments is to surrender.Then the things happen by itself.
The bliss is of the higher world, the spiritual energy is of the higher world, wisdom is of the higher world and pure consciousness is of the higher world.
The body, mind, and heart is an instrument where the dance of life takes place. When you are with your mind, the dance remains limited to you, but once you become one with the existence, your dance spreads all over the existence. You become the instrument, to bring the higher world to life.
