Don't Check Your Mind and Progress
You are asking for endless trouble if you keep asking what your experiences mean. Stop checking your progress!
Daily I get many emails from students who want to know what their experiences mean, or whether they have experienced Turiya or some other significant experience.
Let me ask you, "WHAT DOES IT MATTER?" Does having one extra bit of knowledge about where you are help you are all to go beyond all understanding to freedom and total emptiness? No, it just keeps you trapped in the cognitive mind that is trying to figure everything out, putting everything into a conceptual pigeonhole. But satisfying the mind's need to understand and know completely blocks going beyond the mind and that perticular experience you are questioning! Do have come to a dead stop with no more movement possible until you let go of the question and the experience.
You can't get to freedom through conceptual understanding. You have to lose your mind entirely by doing non conceptual things, like abiding in the sense of I Am until the mind and body disappear. This is the first glint of freedom.
Eventually even this will drop away, but you need to stop depending on mind. Instead you need to trust the method of self-inquiry, more properly described as abiding in the I-sense. No experience you have on the way is worth talking about. When the big experiences come, they are self-explanatory and need no one to interpret or check progress.
Towards this state of certainty is where you should be aiming, and that is by just submerging in the I Am, or I sense. All the rest is conceptual nonsense. Be courageous. Go without words, questioning. Just keep looking at the I or the I-sense. Then feel it with your heart. Become one with it, but don't ask if you are there or close, because someone who is there or close doesn't need confirmation, and the asking for confirmation means you are stuck int that one place, waiting for an answer.
