To embody Divinity post-Brahman, there may seem to be two distinct processes.
This is akin to the 2 processes of development in consciousness – Atman and Sattva.
One aspect is becoming where we recognize we gain a deeper relationship with consciousness. This is the Atman part of the equation.
The other is Sattva, the refinement and polish that leads to deeper knowing and experience and embodiment. Together, they are the primary purpose of spiritual techniques.
But as is the way of all creation, this turns out to reflect deeper causal drivers. As above, so below.
In embodying Divinity, the sense of divinity descends in, from the perspective of the cosmic body. And also of rising up through, from the perspective of divinity itself. I mentioned possible stages of the second on More on Further Stages.
Of course, there is likely to be many variations in how it’s experienced and described. I don’t have a lot of examples yet and fewer are talking about it.
But the two views need a sense of layers to the expression – divinity, the cosmic body, and the local form. At some point, the cosmic is recognized to be or merges with pure Divinity. This ends any distinction between the three. Only the divine remains.
That merging has a rather curious effect on time. It’s like a vast swath of the timeline is resolved. Like jumping ahead years.
Just as the stages in consciousness complete leaving only sattva, so too the distinctions end leaving only development of divinity. Pure Divinity is beyond the gunas so is no longer a “sattva” process but is much the same increasing refinement, purification, and clarity – just in an upgraded way.
