Enlightened state of mind

The attendant of the top-down process is transformed into an observer.
The mind’s sky shines but doesn’t burn.

The base seeds of the bottom-up process is decontaminated and purified clean.
The mind’s sea ripples in harmony with reality.

This is what confucianists might call 天人合一 (unity of heaven and human) or 中庸 (golden median).
This is what taoists might call 无为(non-striving) or 逍遥游 (free and easy flow).
This is what buddhists might call 应无所住而生其心 (the mind that arises from non-dwelling).
