We are aware of our consciousness, which can also be referred to as the observer.
We observe many things, but when our consciousness realizes itself and focuses on itself, this is Mingjue.
Normally, our consciousness, the inner observer, focuses on the external world. We use our eyes, our ears, and our other senses to observe the external world.
When we practice something like yoga, qigong, or mindfulness, then our consciousness focuses on observing our inner body. We may feel these inner feelings clearly. For example we can feel ourselves breathing, our heart beating, and the flowing of the qi.
As our consciousness gradually comes back, we’re becoming aware of our emotions and thoughts – but that’s not what Mingjue is.
When you come to this state you feel very peaceful, very relaxed, very free, very harmonious. This state means that we are coming to the inner source of life. We are not controlled by our body, by our pattern of thinking, by the external world, or anything. This state is very good for life.
In this state the potential of our consciousness is developed and becomes more powerful. If we use this level of consciousness throughout the body, we can transform the qi body to be deeper and stronger. We can manage life as a master of our consciousness and our qi.
