Lies between conscious and unconsciousness, I believe.
It's about being rather than doing, a stillness of the mind.
Set sail within the deep spiritual realm of its peace.
Anchor yourself awhile in this majestic quietude of space.
No churning thoughts are welcomed in this deepen state of calm.
A quiet mind is all you'll need for a genuine light of being.
An inexplicable bliss of feeling, a fasting from your thoughts.
Let your mind rest awhile and it does not mean to sleep.
