In a deeper state, the attention and the life force are switched off from the senses and are consciously kept identified with the ever-joyous spirit. In this state the soul is released from the ego consciousness and becomes aware of spirit beyond creation. The soul is then able to absorb the fire of spirit wisdom that roasts or destroys the seeds of body bound inclinations. The soul as the meditator, its state of meditation, and the spirit as the object of meditation – all become one. The separate wave of the soul meditating in the ocean of spirit becomes merged with the spirit. The soul does not lose its identity but only expands into spirit. Mind is conscious only of the spirit within it is not conscious of creation without the exterior world. The body is in a trancelike state, but the consciousness is fully perceptive of its blissful experience within.
