Excerpt About Integration
Integrating the Person Into the AbsoluteIntegrating the person into the Absolute is more difficult than experiencing the Absolute. Integration requires that you deal with and metabolize your unconscious and your personal history. You have to really let all of the unconscious come out, to face all of your specific issues and areas of conflict and ignorance. Many traditions don't care about integration, but strive only to reach the Absolute. They don't care about the personal life. The point for them is to know the Absolute and leave. In other traditions, and in our work, the point is to know the Absolute and live in the world as an expression of it. So, how can you live a human life from the perspective of absence? That is the realm of development, change, and transformation within consciousness.
