Wideawakeness works like a re-format in the alpha-thinking drive.
Without a trace of volition or doer-ship, tick-tock thinking undergoes transformation.
In the main, that means the withering, unhooking, dissolving of habitude. It means the brain relaxes into its natural state, ever-fresh, ever alert, ever aware.
I call this omega-mind.
Although what wideawakeness reveals is intemporal, in the world of phenomena the effects appear to take time, and like a flower, unfold in their own perfect rhythm.

“Wideawakeness”… Although in traditional Advaita Vedanta the reality of who we are is experienced (so it is said) in its unalloyed purity in deep sleep – where the world (bod(y)ies and mind/s) is absent – , the experience of this wholeness/reality can be transposed to the ‘waking state’, as you so well describe, since consciousness is always present, no matter what ‘else’ is happening. Bowing to you!
(my experience with sleep is mostly of chaotic, ‘impossible’ dreams… very rarely a beautiful one, but still a dream! That must be because I am too deeply asleep in ‘deep sleep’)
Enjoy those ‘impossible’ dreams dear AM – all dreams are spun from the same fabric and ‘known’ by the same “wideawakeness” 🙂 ~ ml
Readly accepted, despite Shakespeare’s dictum: “O God! I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space were it not that I have bad dreams”.
That ‘wideawakeness’ is equivalent to ‘deep sleep’ is a paradox in life, or rather a proof of the resoursefulness of language – it is merely an aparent contradiction.
