Andrew and I have been having a series of conversations on the stages of enlightenment. Our prior discussion was on Self Realization and GC. In this conversation, we explore Unity stage and it’s related refinement. Andrew outlines an alternative sequence that can arise if the refinement (feminine) process is dominant, as discussed in the prior conversation. If you’re not familiar with the stages, please review the above links first.

The “world as illusion” barrier to Unity
Update: it’s worth noting a distinction between:
a) a strong God Consciousness (GC) process with refinement and heart opening followed by Unity where masculine and feminine aspects of consciousness are recognized as one. This is the more typical sequence, lead by consciousness/ masculine that I talk of.
b) a GC process evolving into Refined Unity with a taste of Brahman, followed by the Divine Union of Unity (m & f again) that Andrew describes in the conversation. This path is dominated by devotion and refinement, the feminine.
A glorified version of the first is not the same as the second. Same underlying process but the sequence is a bit different due to the emphasis.
