What arises within consciousness is not consciousness itself. Consciousness cannot be defined by the various ways that it manifests. It is infinite potentiality that doesn’t become anything.
Attention, perception, and states of awareness are all partialities. Learn the difference between these common spiritual terms, and how to access a direct experience of Reality before attention or perception create any limited views of consciousness.
To be fully awake, to experience Reality without any modifications, all identities, ideas, and filters must be washed away. This includes the enlightened identity. The process can be disorienting, but it is the ultimate liberation.
