YOU are not the usual mind but THAT which observes all you describe. It is empty and present. But these words again are concepts.
The practice should always rest actively in pure listening, letting go of all labels and consciousness. So there can be no correct answer that lasts. Realize again and again that ANY experience is SEEN by YOU and follow that identity at the cost of all labels.
The more you LIVE in that question the more power it generates. An awakening is not a product but a total opening into ONENESS with the whole universe. This is no longer a mental experience, not a result. Do not expect it but work on keeping the question alive 24/7.
All the best!
