Always remember you are not conscious AS the mind, you are conscious OF the mind.
Never identify with the mind least you limit yourself whilst expressing duality: One day you have it, one day you don't: Life, love, health, wealth etc.
Become conscious of being Awareness Aka Soul.
Do this by keeping the mind as still as possible so that it reflects the Soul like a still lake reflects the moon and stars....
Allow yourself this realization of being thy true Self Aka the Lord (Alpha) through the recognition of a pure mind (Omega).
"Be still and know that 'I AM'" - Psalm 46:10
The Pathless Path is to be still (Meditation) and know that I am.
