Our entire life is based on the three different states of mind or consciousness–the wakeful state, sleep and dream state. In the wakeful state, the sensory organs perceive and interact with sensory objects. The whole world is there only when one wakes up. When the mind wakes up, a number of objects are perceived. All objects get reflected in the sphere of the mind.

The same mind wipes off all object impressions and goes to sleep, where no object is felt, perceived or experienced. In the sleep state there is no body, mind, intelligence and ego. Everything gets suspended and one gets up and says ‘I slept’.

Sometimes one slips into a dream, where the mind proves its capacity to produce objects. The Consciousness or the mind produces a parallel world in which gross things are created.

So we have three different states of awareness and there is an inscrutable power which is capable of creating and uncreating anything and also bring about necessary changes in whatever is present. Swamiji says that the three states help one to understand that it is the same creational power that expresses itself in wakefulness, sleep and dream.
