Excerpt About Endless Awakening
This brings us to the fourth juncture on the path of realization and awakening. Here we recognize and understand reality experientially as true nature and as what we are. I mean reality in all senses of the word, which is what I call Total Being. Everyday reality, which is reality according to the dualistic view, is included in what I mean by reality. Once we have an encounter with true nature, then reality appears differently. And when there is realization of true nature, then that primary awakening changes our perception of reality, and we understand it differently. Each kind of realization changes our understanding of reality. In other words, realization is not only about how you experience yourself but also about how you experience reality, how you experience everything. Total Being refers to all these understandings of reality and all other possible ones.
