A State of Enlightenment Through Witness Consciousness?

    Salvikalpa Samadhi (or Savikalpa Samadhi) is when thoughts can still come, but there is no identification with them. They arise and disappear while you remain as the witness. You could also call this state of Samadhi an advanced state of “Witness Consciousness.”

    When you are in this state, you have no personal identity, you rest as awareness itself.

    How it begins:

    Once you are established in being a witness to your thoughts, the thoughts change. Your thoughts started off as personal thoughts, what you have to do, what you want to do, what you are worried about, what happened in your past etc. You also think linear. One thought leads to another and to another.

    But as you enter witness consciousness, the thoughts become random, they are no longer personal. They arise and disappear independently of each other.

    And what do they mean without context?
