I took a bit of time and enjoyable "effort" to summerise what I integrated recently with the conviction that "the turning of the Heart wheel" will liberate all beings, which my previous post is a statement of (the 4 types of liberation go from 1 primordially liberated to 4 completely liberated) and much of an AH and a hahahaha !
here it is:
total integration as means of total transference
these excerpts from ancient text compilations (no source is offered to the scrutinisers) once integrated, give imminence to final "departure" from the cycles.
(They warn of the toxicity of mixing political powers with spiritual practices, they also mention that the sudden-path method is as toxic for the practitioners of gradual path, than the gradual is for the sudden. Another warning is about practicing several methods, perfected by different sects, rather than finishing one, which is like drilling many holes, none of them going deep enough to attain Source. They enumerate the root downfalls, which, if the disgressions aren't restored, have extremely harsh consequences, esp for vajrayana practitionners. One of the disgressions concerns contempt and disparaging of other spiritual lineages and traditions)
"All spiritual traditions, whether Christian, Hindu, Judaic, Islamic, or Buddhist, teach that the understanding of what we are at the deepest level is the main point. This understanding of the nature of mind sheds light from within and illuminates the teachings of all traditions. In every tradition, whoever gains firsthand, experiential understanding of mind and retains that kind of awareness is led to a world view that would not have been possible prior to this direct experience. Knowledge of the nature of mind is the key that yields an understanding of all teachings; it sheds light on what we are, the nature of all our experiences, and reveals the deepest form of love and compassion.
The actual realization of the nature of mind opens onto a complete understanding of Dharma and all the traditions. To have a good theoretical knowledge of Dharma or any other spiritual tradition and to effectively realize the ultimate nature of mind, however, are profoundly different. Even a realized being who is not involved in a particular spiritual tradition would have, while living in the ordinary world, an extremely beneficial influence."
