The Four States of Consciousness & Seven Attributes of Turiya #34
The nature of the waking, dreaming, and deep sleep states of humanity has been studied by Indian seers for millennia. They have not just examined it from the waking state, like with wires and machines, but from within dreams and deep sleep, and in meditation on the fourth state beyond these three as well. The result has been the discovery of mankind’s inner nature, from wherein all the physical universe has sprung — as projection of mind rather than creation by God. In short, the entire Kingdom of Heaven lies within us, and only a very small and ever changing portion of it lies outside.
