Asleep to the World and Awake to the Self

In this video from 29th December 1992, Papaji addresses a question about being in a space without a sense of awareness of thoughts. Is this sleeping while awake or spacing out?

Papaji explains, “You can call it sleeping while awake but to whom? Sleeping to the world and awake to the Self. Mind, samsara, arise when there is no enquiry; enquiry is freedom. When mind is no more, then you are aware; this is total awareness.
