When the mind is still, whatever is perceived is without our personal discolorations of thought and experience. It is as though one is observing through a crystal clear jewel, such that the observer, the observed and the object of observation all become the one object of meditation without any distortion. Then the internal gaze can rest upon Itself, or Pure Consciousness, without any shape or form – remember Sutra 1.3?
