"I tend to live as if everyone was a realized buddha."
In other words, to live as if the illusion is real?
In your world where everyone is a realized Buddha, there is thus no need to postpone one's enlightenment for the liberation of all sentient beings.
In the world I physically reside, everyone is potentially a realized Buddha but obscured from that truth.
Nagarjuna said, "It is not assumed that the Blessed One exists after death. Neither is it assumed that he does not exist, or both, or neither. It is not assumed that even a living Blessed One exists. Neither is it assumed that he does not exist, or both, or neither."
The same with sentient beings,...who (except g) would assume that all sentient beings will actually be liberated? If there was some sort of blanket liberation for all sentient beings, why would Kuan Yin delayed her full enlightenment to work for liberation?
I must assume that g is rather naive when it comes to matters of the Spirit and beyond. Although, it must be such a sweet, romantic notion that everyone will be saved, and exist to enjoy the splended bliss of the Wholeness beyond the sum of opposites.
