Mind It!
by Akshay Patil Bookmark and Share

Mind is always the study topic for all the scientists and masters also. A lot of study has been done on mind but still there is a lot to be fathomed.  

It is said that there are mainly four states of mind!! They are- 

  • Waking
  • Dreaming
  • Sleeping
  • Turiya ( The Fourth )

But to be more specific, out of these four, first three can be literally said as the 'states' of mind. The last one is not the state in fact! Because 'a state' can be changed but Turiya is nothing but your 'being', your 'nature' & how can the 'being' be changed?


When you are awake, it is the state,shape of your being..it's not your being. In this state of mind, one can have the masks on his 'real', as in this state, along with the mind his brain & thoughts are also working. They interrupt the 'honesty' of our own being.

The second one-dreaming, is a significant state!! In this stage we are just observer. We cannot enter into the situation actually, we simply become helpless in the dreams. We are not doer here but just observer!! Because of this helplessness only, dreams become more real. more authentic and they show many things about the mind.

Dreamless sleep is also a state of mind. It is also very necessary state as mind is relaxing in this state.

The word 'Turiya' means nothing but " the fourth". This is not the state actually. Because you cannot change IT...but you are IT !!! It goes on in all the three states and transcends them all!!

These all states are to be experienced and not just known!! Have their feel.. live them lively... they are not simply mechanical but they are full of bliss of liveliness...!!!
