The Creative Immanence of Being full Experience

During 8th century Tibet the appearance of the foundational Dzogchen text “ All Creative Source” took place. This magnificent Dzogchen Text reflected a dramatic transformation both in Meditative Practice and in the philosophical understanding of Meditative Practice.

The Dzogchen tradition was a source of profound philosophical transformation and profound transition from Transcendental Philosophical assumptions and Transcendental Idealistic experience and Transcendental Idealistic understanding about the unreality of the world and the unreality of our self into a luminous form of subtle philosophical Realism and the pervasive Immanence of the experience of luminous awareness and the pervasive Immanence and actuality of our luminous Being full existence in a luminous Being full world. Our luminous Being full existence is the actuality of a personal ontological self and our Being full participation in the luminous Being full existence of the ontological cosmological world.

Dzogchen was a radical shift from Transcendental Emptiness of Existence to the Embodied Fullness of the Being fullness of Pervasive Immanence and the emanating power of Pure Being fullness self -manifesting as personal human beings within a profoundly personal world. Pure Being fullness, the Ground of Being is profoundly Personal and ontologically actual and ontologically pervasive.

This evolutionary change brought forth a collective transformation of phenomenological meditation practice going beyond the Dissociative Medium of Transcendental Being lessness into the Spacious Opening of Meditation Practice as a profoundly natural way to experientially know Being, to experientially know the Being fullness of Being and to existentially experience the multidimensional Immanence of Being just we are. We are in the Sea of Being fullness as the Sea of Being fullness.


EMAHO! (Fantastic)This period of the 8th century was an amazing creative opening of our naturalistic direct non conceptual pre-reflective knowing of our primordial awareness of our profoundly personal experience of our Embodied Luminous Being fullness of Being.

The text “All Creative Source” articulated the profound change in meditation practice from a Transcendental view of Being lessness or Emptiness to the phenomenological experience of the Pure Immanence of the Being fullness of Being within us and within all beings. Thus, the door of Being fullness opened for our self- liberation through our embodied Being full life just as it is! And just as we are! This is self- liberation in and through the Realm of Immanence of our ordinary life world of Being fullness and the dynamic actuality of Being fullness. This ontological philosophical understanding frees human beings from the experience that their life is an illusion and their love is empty delusion and their very essence of personal self is illusion.

This philosophical manifestation of Being full Immanence was also unfolding in other cultures during this dramatic time period of 8th and 9th centuries. This experiential philosophical manifestation of Being full immanence was taking place within Kashmir Shavism, within certain forms of Daoism, and within the Islamic Mysticism of lbn Arabi and Suhrawardi. Within Christian philosophy during the 4th century St. Augustine began articulating a phenomenological ontological experience of innermost personal awareness manifesting the Divinity of Appearance and the Divinity of experience within us and through our inner heart essence.


The Wonder of Being full Presence and Pervasive Immanence

Dzogchen Meditation is the embodied process of becoming aware of our primordial awareness and the unfolding experience of self-liberation through our direct personal experiential non conceptual pre-reflective knowing of luminous Being full Presence. We can experience this Being full Presence within our own self and we can experience this Being full presence within our direct experiential pre-reflective knowing of the Phenomenological World of Ontological Presence. This ontological Presence is the Presence of Being fullness. Ontological implies our experience of both Being and Being-fullness.

We can experience Being-full Presence through and within the Appearance of Phenomena. All phenomena are an event of Being-fullness. All phenomena are an event of the manifestation of the ontological Presence of Pure Being-fullness. We can live in Being-fullness and live as Being-full Presence life after life and death after death. We do not live the “As If” life of transcendental delusionary experience of illusionary life within an illusionary world.


From Being lessness Meditation to Being fullness Meditation

Through the natural medium of our personal awareness becoming aware of our luminous innermost innate primordial awareness, we can experience the Being fullness of Phenomena by “entering into” the Being fullness of our Phenomenological World.

As we go beyond the Transcendental Dissociative Medium, we discover that Phenomena is no longer Beingless. We discover Being fullness within our own Being, Being fullness as our own intrinsic awareness, Being fullness within all Phenomena, and within all beings just as they are!

In phenomenological Dzogchen we are going beyond the void! We go beyond emptiness. In phenomenological Dzogchen we go through the voidness and beyond the voidness into the Primordial Presence of Pure Luminous Being fullness. This is not the path of Absence nor the path of Emptiness. This is not the path of deprivation but the path of fullness, the path of Being full self-manifestation.

We discover that phenomena are not empty of luminous Being fullness. We discover we are not empty of luminous Being fullness. Those we love are not empty of luminous Being full Presence. We discover experientially that even those who have gone beyond this dimension of our ordinary life world are not empty of luminous Being fullness. We are no longer locked within the Transcendental Emptiness of Being lessness of self and the Existential Emptiness of the Being lessness of Phenomena and the Existential Emptiness of the Being lessness of Reality and Actuality. We are no longer living within the Philosophical Poverty of Transcendental Being lessness. We are no longer captivated by the transcendental medium of dissociation, detachment, depersonalization and de-realization of the reality and the actuality of our human Experience and Existence. Our human translucid experience is both Being full and Actual and completely Real.

Absence

The early Buddhist Anatman understanding was a vast and a profound experience of and about the “Absence” within all Phenomena being Beingless and all Phenomena lacking actuality and All Phenomena lacking reality or actuality. This hopeless and helpless passive dissociative view was a profoundly limited and a limiting philosophical distortion of human experience. This Beingless understanding about phenomena and human experience distorts the very nature of human love, distorts the very nature of human bonding and the very nature human relational existence. This nihilistic Beingless understanding is even a distortion of the human event of death and dying. This Beingless experience and Beingless understanding is experientially and ontologically Schizoid.


This Beingless understanding about human phenomena and human experience lacking actuality and lacking reality, profoundly distorts the nature of human desire and human love and human bonding and attachment. This “delusionary” understanding about the world not being real nor actual, was and is experientially Beingless and philosophically schizoid. The language of Schizoid describes the Beingless and Meaningless and Emptiness of Human Personal Experience.

The world is not a delusion! The world does exist and continues to exist life after life and after death after death. We continue life after life and death after death. The Existential delusion is the delusion that we do not exist and neither does our self and the world exist. This existence is considered as an imaginal as if display . There is neither “Who-ness” or Selfness. Psychologically this Who-lessness is profoundly distorting.


Beingless Existence as Suffering

Of course, within his own Beingless Existence, Gautama declares that all life is suffering and Cessation is the goal. This is so true. This Beingless view of human existence results in profound suffering of meaninglessness and is profoundly boring and profoundly empty. This Beingless desireless existence is the idealization of many philosophical and spiritual traditions both east and the west.

Beingless existence is schizoid existence. This Beingless view and Beingless experience of our existence creates and reflects a schizoid foundational Beingless base of our human existence. This is Ma Rigpa. Ma Rigpa means profoundly ignorant of Being fullness. Ma Rigpa means profoundly stupid.

Patriarchal Domination

All of these Beingless philosophical and spiritual traditions are dominated by Patriarchal Leadership. This Patriarchal domination is not a mere coincidence. This Patriarchal domination is part of the Illusionary Drama. This Patriarchal domination is actually a necessary element to this illusionary drama of Being lessness of phenomena and the absence of self. If you live in Being fullness, you do not need the Patriarchal Idiom. If you live in Being lessness, you will desperately need the One who knows Absolutely. Or as is so often said “something is better than nothing.” Patriarchal Domination is the something that is better than nothing!


The Bliss of The Being fullness of Being

Our ontic ontological experience of Being-fullness is expressed in the Shaivite Tantric exclamation that the “Bliss of Samadhi is the Bliss of the World”. In and through our meditative awareness of primordial awareness we experience phenomenological Being and the Primordial Ground of Being in union, in oneness, in non-duality within the duality of difference.

The Creative Source of Pure Being is in sameness and in oneness with and within our phenomenological experience. Our Creative source and all phenomenological forms are in oneness and in the non -duality of Being fullness within the duality of Forms. Phenomenological experience is the manifestation of the All-Creative Source.

The All-Creative Source and the Phenomena and the Appearance of Phenomena are in Oneness. Source and Phenomena are in Non- Dualistic Actuality. Source and Phenomena are in the Sameness of Being fullness. This ontological oneness of Source and Phenomena is our source of self -liberation.

This profound realistic understanding changes the nature of Meditation and changes the Drama of Self Liberation. We no longer have to dissociate, detach, and depersonalize from our ordinary life world experience in order to experience Being fullness and Pure Being, just as we are.

Our ordinary life world of Phenomena is no longer considered to be a delusion or an illusion. Phenomena is the actuality of Being fullness. Phenomena is the Actuality of Existence. We do actually exist! This world does actually exist. Our sense of our person as self is no longer a delusionary experience and our sense of our person is now the luminous experience of our Pure Being-full Presence of our innate and intrinsic field of awareness, infinite in its horizons, vast and multidimensional.

This realistic ontological view and ontological experience requires the profound shift from the Drama of Transcendental depersonalization, Transcendental detachment and Transcendental dissociation to our ongoing embodied experience of self-liberation within our luminous experience of the profound Immanence of Luminous Being fullness within us as us and just as we are! Self- liberation is not a drama of self-improvement.

We soon discover and directly experience that the Being of all beings are ‘Univoce’. ‘Univoce’ here means that the Being of all beings is the Same, and is Equal, and is Pure and is in Oneness. There is no above or below. There are no hierarchies in ontological Being and in ontological Being fullness. Phenomena and the Creative Source of Phenomena are in Oneness and in complete ontological Sameness and are Being fully Pure. The infinite Forms of phenomena are profoundly and infinitely different and are all manifestations of the singular Field of Being and Being fullness.


The Drama of Being full Immanence

We discover that the Oneness of the field of Being and the beings of the field of Being reflect this vast infinite Field of Being full Immanence. Our experiential awareness is no longer absorbed and captivated within the dissociative Field of Transcendental Emptiness or Voidness. The field of Being full Immanence is the field of Equality Consciousness and Equal Vision. The Experiential Field of Immanence is the Field of our Being full Self Liberation just as we are.

The Field of Immanence is The Field of Being full Luminous Beingness infinite in its horizons, vast and multidimensional. The field of luminous awareness is the field of Being fullness, infinite in its horizons, vast and multidimensional.

There is a wonderful ancient Dzogchen Nyingma prayer “May I experience all Phenomena as the Ground of Being, May I experience all Phenomena as Source. May I experience all phenomena as the Dharmakaya.”

There is no difference between Source and Phenomena. There is no difference between Source and Appearance. There is no difference between the Ground of Being and the Phenomena of beings. There is no difference between us and source. To experience this Pervasive Being fullness is self-liberation just as we are! To experience Pervasive Being fullness is self- liberation. To experience the Pervasive Source of Being fullness is self-liberation.



The Mysterious Union

The All-Creative Source which is primordial awareness or primordial consciousness or primordial Being fullness illuminates our experience of mind. In this illumination our mind knows the essence of phenomena; and our primordial awareness directly knows the Being and the Being fullness of Phenomena. This union of mind and primordial awareness is the beginning of self -liberation just as we are! Our mind knows Phenomena and our Being full awareness knows the Being and Being fullness of the Phenomena.


When We Are Located in Our Mind Alone!

When a person is located in their mind alone, they can know phenomena and even the essence of the phenomena but they cannot experience the Being or Being fullness of the phenomena. And so the phenomena will feel empty. The phenomena will lack Presence and Depth of Being full resonance. The phenomena will lack meaningfulness.

The phenomena will lack grounded meaningfulness. Being fullness and Meaning fullness are intimately correlated. Being lessness and Meaningless are correlated. When phenomena lacks Being fullness, our experience of the phenomena may lack a sense of reality and actuality. Phenomena and the events of phenomena will seem unreal. Inner experience will feel Beingless, empty of depth and breathe. Inner experience will feel void, empty and unreal. The sense of the personal is lost. Without the Being full Presence of our inner most awareness, a schizoid sense of Being lessness is experienced by human beings. This is the inner agony of absence, the absence of Being fullness.

Being full Presence

Through the Dzogchen praxis of becoming personally aware of our own innate primordial awareness as the field of Being and as the Being fullness of Being, we can experience the Being fullness of awareness within our own embodiment, within our own Being. We experience Being fullness within the immediacy of our ordinary life world and within those who inhabit with us our ordinary life world just as it is.

We can experience and perceive the Being fullness of other beings just as they are. We can experientially know directly and live directly within the Being fullness of this world, and the Being fullness of the infinity of Cosmos, Cosmological unendingness. We can live in the field of Being fullness, just as we are. We can live life after life and death after death in the Being fullness of Being as a being.

Who-ness!

This Being fullness is Vadra Kumara, the unborn and undying state of ontological Being full Awareness. Being full awareness is our Being full Who-ness! Who-ness is Being-fullness and Being-fullness is who-ness. Being fullness is Knowingness. Awareness is our Knowingness of Being fullness as Being fullness.

Timeless Awareness in Time

We can discover Timeless Awareness within us as the Ground of Being. We can experience Timeless awareness within Time. We are Timeless Awareness manifesting in Time. We can self-manifest Being fullness and transmit the luminous energy of Being fullness to other human beings. This natural capacity is within us just as we are. Just as Being self- manifests us , we can self- manifest Being and Being fullness.

True Compassion as The Transmission of Being fullness

This Transmission of Being fullness and the Energy of Being fullness is True Compassion. As Bodhidharma said in the 6th century Cei “Beyond words and letters there is a transmission. This Transmission does not belong to any tradition. This transmission is the nature of human awareness.”


Gnosis or Jnana Is Our Being Full Direct Knowingness of Being

Our direct Non-Conceptual Knowing of Being and Being fullness through our field of awareness is called Gnosis and Jnana and Yeshe (Wisdom). Our direct luminous knowing of the Trans lucidity of the Being fullness of beings and the Being fullness of Pure Being is called Gnosis and Jnana and Yeshe (Wisdom). We do not have gnosis, we do not have jnana, we do not have Yeshe. We are Gnosis and we are Jnana and we are Yeshe.

We are our direct non conceptual knowingness, and we are our direct awareness of Being. Our self is Jnana, our self is Gnosis and our self is Yeshe. Our self is our Being-fullness. Being is infinite in its horizons and vast and multidimensional. Our own Being is infinite in its horizons and vast and multidimensional. This Being-fullness is not the Being-lessness of many eastern and western traditions of Transcendental Consciousness!




Being fullness Who-ness, As Personal Who-ness is Ontological

Our self is our primordial awareness knowing the Being fullness of Being and the Being fullness of phenomena. Our mind knows phenomena and our awareness knows Being. Our awareness is our Being full Who-ness. Our awareness is our personal Who-ness. Awareness is not a simplistic psychological phenomenon, or a psychological event or mentalistic event as many people and traditions like to think. Our awareness is an event of Luminous Being fullness. Our awareness, our Who-ness is Ontological. You and I are ontological beings.

Our personal awareness is our innate intrinsic direct non conceptual pre-reflective ontological knowingness. Our awareness, our self is not simply a psychological ontic event. Our self is ontological Being full. Our self is our ontological Who-ness. We do not have gnosis, we are ontological gnosis and we are ontological Jnana and we are ontological Yeshe (Wisdom). We do not have Who-ness, we are Who-ness. We are our ontological knowing as Being full Who ness. Our world is profoundly Personal. Our Cosmos is profoundly Personal. This Personalness of our existence reflects our innate Ontological Being fullness as Who-ness.

This is what Jung meant by anima mystic existence. Our Ground of Being and our experience of our Ground of Being as our profound source is profoundly Personal. Our existence is multidimensional and Personal. Our meditational awareness is profoundly personal and multidimensional. Our meditational awareness is not a non-personal, impersonal, non Being full schizoid event.


Being Fullness Knowing Being

When we become aware of own our awareness, we become aware of our Being and the Radiant Being fullness of our Being. Our awareness is our knowingness of Being as Being fullness. Our Being fullness knows Being directly as our own intimate awareness, since Our Being is awareness itself. Our awareness is our Being’s knowingness of Being.

Our awareness is not the knowing of our Mind, but our primordial awareness is our Being’s intimate knowingness of Being. Our mind knows form and our awareness knows Being and our Being full awareness knows the Being fullness of forms. Our Being full awareness knows the Being fullness of beings directly and non-conceptually, pre-reflectively and experientially. Our Being fullness is formless and form simultaneously.

Our Personal Who-ness Is Ontological Being Full Knowingness

Our Being full awareness is our ontological Who-ness. Our Being full awareness is profoundly personal and profoundly intimate. Our Being fullness is profoundly ontological and is not simply a psychological event or ontic event. Our Being full awareness is the manifestation and expression of Being and Being fullness. Our Being full awareness is the self-manifestation of the Ground of Being. Our awareness is our Who-ness of Being. We are Being-fullness as Who-ness.

Our primordial awareness is our Who-ness and our Who-ness is our Being fullness. Our Being fullness is our Who-ness in the world. Our Who-ness does not have awareness, our Who-ness is awareness. Our Being full Awareness is profoundly and intimately personal. Our direct perception as Gnosis and as Jnana is profoundly personal and profoundly ontological.



Being Full Intimacy

Our Being full awareness is profoundly intimate. Awareness is intrinsically intimate. Awareness is the immanent experience of Intimacy. Self- liberation is liberation through the intimacy of Being fullness. Without our Who-ness of Being fullness, there is no Intimacy. Without our Who-ness of Being-fullness, our existence is Being lessness.

Our Mutual Sharing of Being fullness is Intimacy. Intimacy is a Being full experience. Being fullness is a shared experience. Being lessness is state empty of Being and empty of intimacy. A Beingless person cannot experience intimacy and more often than not, a Beingless person can- not tolerate Intimacy. Without Being fullness intimacy is a bit too much. Being fullness is intrinsically Intimate.

Form and Formlessness in Union

Being is both formless and form. Our awareness is formless. Our mind knows form and is subtle forms of knowing form. You and I are the Being fullness of Formless Awareness, the Being fullness of a form. Our Being fullness of formless awareness can intimately enter the Being fullness of formless awareness of another Being full form of formless awareness.

Our forms can be in relationship, and our formless awareness can enter the formless awareness of the other. This is the experience of duality and non-duality. The experience of forms in relationship is duality and the experience of formless awareness within formless awareness of the other is non- duality. The experience of our Being full formless awareness within the Being full formless awareness of the other is sublime experience of non- duality within duality of forms.

This union of formless awareness within the formless awareness of the other creates the power of non- dual metabolization of experience and the structures of experience. This union of formless awareness within the formless awareness of the other the powerful mysterious conjunction. This union can be a source of healing, Bliss, Creative Illumination.

Of course, sexual relations can take place within the realm of form alone. And of course, sexual relations can take place within the realm of form and formlessness. This experience is the tantra of self- liberation through sexual union within formless awareness.


Self-Liberation is An Intimate Event of Being Fullness.

Distortion and Dissociative Detachment Foreclose Intimacy. Our dissociative detachment, our dissociative depersonalization of Being and our depersonalization of Being fullness, forecloses intimacy. The dissociative Trans-personalness of Transcendental Praxis is a schizoid distortion of human mysticism. The transcendental dissociative schizoid method is useful in unbearable suffering.

The dissociative transcendence of the actuality of reality can be freeing in unbearable suffering and unbearable agony. In the context of unbearable suffering transcendence can be a doorway to self- liberation through agony.

Nonetheless, Dissociative transcendence is a distortion of the actuality and reality of the Being fullness of our embodied person and embodied world. Dissociative Transcendence is distortion of the very nature of our Being in the world. Dissociative Transcendental experience hides within the schizoid emptiness of human experience, hides within the schizoid emptiness of self- experience and hides within the schizoid emptiness of phenomena.


Witness Consciousness is a Schizoid state of Objectified Voidness. Schizoid is not a psychological pathology. Schizoid reflects ontological experience that influences our personal psychology.

Schizoid means Beingless. Schizoid means emptiness of Being fullness. When there is emptiness of Being fullness there will be an emptiness of Intimacy. Intimacy is a Being full experience. Schizoid traditions avoid intimacy. Schizoid Spiritual traditions and Schizoid religions avoid human Intimacy. A Beingless person has great difficulty tolerating intimacy. Being lessness is the ongoing agony of Absence. Such vows of poverty, chastity and obedience are expressions and the praxis of patriarchal schizoid dominated existence and schizoid cultural organizational existence.


Dissociative Beingless Transcendence

Transcendence distorts the nature and luminous power of human existence. Transcendence distorts luminous desire. Transcendence distorts love, distorts the luminous Being fulness of our world and our life just as it is. The Transcendental Monastic view of schizoid detachment as expressed in the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience is a profound Transcendental Distortion of the Bliss of Being fullness and the Bliss of Intimacy. The Bliss of Intimacy is the Bliss of Being fullness. Transcendental Absence distorts the profound experience that The Bliss of The World is The Bliss of Samadhi.

The Bliss of Samadhi is The Bliss of The World. Transcendence is a Beingless Experience of Beingless phenomena. Transcendental Experience is Who-less. Who-ness disappears within Transcendental Experience! In Dzogchen this is called Ma Rigpa. Ma Rigpa means not knowing Being fullness and not experiencing Being fullness and not understanding Being fullness. Ma Rigpa means Ignorance of luminous Being fullness.


Equality Consciousness and Equal Vision As Being Fullness

Both Dzogchen and Contemporary Existential Phenomenology described how phenomenologically human beings know Being and within our direct knowing of Being, we know the Being of phenomena and in experiencing Being within phenomena we experience self-liberation and the liberating power of Equality Consciousness and Equal Vision. Equality Consciousness is profoundly intimate and profoundly immanent. Equality consciousness is self-liberation of Intimacy through Intimacy. Equality Consciousness is the Intimacy of Being fullness, the intimacy of Non- Duality.

Equality Consciousness and Equal Vision is our experience of our direct intimate experience of the Equality of the Being fullness of Being as beings. All beings are of the same Beingness and all are Univocal. All Being is the profound sameness of Being fullness. This is what the word Univocal means. There is no above or below within Being and within Being fullness. Equal Vision is ontological and not simply psychological or ontic.

Human Prejudice is an expression of the profound lack of Equality Consciousness and Equal Vision. Human Prejudice is a Beingless experience of human Beings. Human Prejudice is always schizoid in essence. Human Prejudice reflects Schizoid Beingless states of existing.

Analogy or Univocity: Hierarchal-ness or Sameness

Being is not the world of analogy as some like to think. Analogy means not all Being is the same and some beings are more Being then other beings. Analogy of Being is ontological Hierarchal-ness. Analogy of Being is ontological prejudicial. St. Thomas Aquinas taught the analogy of Being and the hierarchal-ness of Being. St. Thomas suffered from the philosophical illness of Patriarchal-ness.

Medieval existence was possessed by Patriarchal-ness. Medieval Religion was possessed by Patriarchal-ness. In patriarchal-ness, all Being is not equal and there is ontological hierarchy through the range of beings. Some beings have more Being then other beings. The truth of Being fullness, the truth of Aletheia is non- hierarchical. Ontological Hierarchal ness is our existential source of all forms of human slavery and tribal prejudice. Many people are slaves of their would-be God. For many the Symbolization of God is a Patriarchal Symbolization of their experiential ontology.

The Patriarchal Truth of Veritas

The truth of the Being-fullness of Patriarchal Veritas is completely Hierarchical. The truth of Veritas is completely Patriarchal. The truth of Veritas is truth of Judgmental Mind. The truth of Veritas is the truth of the “Adequatio et Rebus”. The truth of mind is the truth of the adequation of the judgement of mind with the thing. The truth of Aletheia is the unfolding manifestation of Pure Being fullness. The truth of Aletheia is the truth of Being fullness. The truth of Aletheia is the dynamic unfolding of Being as beings and as the Events of Being and the self-manifestation of Being.

Immanence

Duns Scotus the great medieval theologian taught that Being is Univocity. All Being is in oneness and all Being is in sameness. Immanence characterizes the field of Being as Non-Hierarchical. This is the experiential understanding of Dzogchen and Contemporary Existential Phenomenological ontology.

This is Philosophical Immanence. Philosophical Immanence is radically different then philosophical transcendence. Immanence implies the philosophical embodiment of Being fullness. Transcendence implies our Dissociation from both our embodiment and our Being fullness. In Transcendence and Transcendental experience there is no Intimacy of Being fullness. Transcendental philosophy is a Schizoid Event, a Beingless Event.

Transcendental Meditation Praxis requires our dissociation from our embodiment of our awareness and our embodied Field of Luminous Being fullness. As a consequence, the phenomena of the world are unreal and Beingless, just as we, in our dissociative experience will feel unreal and Beingless. In Meditation as and in our awareness of Being fullness, we experience liberation through our direct non conceptual knowing experience of Being fullness within our self and within the Being fullness of the world as Immanent Being fullness. Meditative experience is liberation through the Intimacy of Sublime Being fullness. Self-Liberation is liberation through our direct experience of the Sublime Being fullness of Being, just as we are.
