MEDITATION is another name of witnessing.
Witnessing is the tool of consciousness, used to disconnect itself from the mind and reconnect with ultimate awareness. This ultimate awareness is the transcendence of consciousness—spaceless space beyond the mind.
We can’t talk about consciousness and unconsciousness as two separate states, but more like in degrees: you can be more or less conscious. There’s no such a thing as darkness, only different degrees of light. Witness without any judgment, without any evaluation.
When your consciousness become conscious of all that is to be conscious in outside reality, and there are no more unconscious traces in your perception of being, no more conscious witnessing of objects and subjects, so that two realities becomes one reality, your old mind is no more, but is clear of all thoughts. All vibrations in the mind become only one conscious vibration, so that there’s nothing to witness anymore. Consciousness turns its total attention to itself, witnessing one vibration—that of the witness, that of the consciousness. When your consciousness becomes conscious of itself you become awareness.
Understand this. The more you become conscious, the more you come to be a witness. So consciousness is a method to achieve witnessing, and witnessing is a method to achieve awareness.
