….There is only one consciousness, which subsists in the waking, dream and sleep states. In sleep there is no ‘I’. The ‘I’-thought arises on waking and then the world appears. Where was this ‘I’ in sleep ? Was it there or was it not ? It must have been there also, but not in the way that you feel now. The present is only the ‘I’-thought, whereas the sleeping ‘I’ is the real ‘I’. It subsists all through. It is consciousness. If it is known you will see that is beyond thoughts.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, from the classic, ‘Talks’, p 49
