All concepts related to attaining ‘levels’ of consciousness pertain to the belief in ‘separation’ … the root origin behind the manifested illusion of the world-universe. This is a very convincing but insidious winding road that ‘never’ brings the SELF back to the full Awareness ‘of’ IT SELF. The ONE SELF is the ‘screen’ upon which this dream is projected and requires no ‘process’ of ascension to return to SELF Awareness.
Only the simple [not easy] ‘elimination’ of all attachment and identification ‘with’ the projection that masks the SELF ‘from’ IT SELF is required. Dissolving this veil of conditioning reveals Who You Really Are without any need for long and arduous so-called ‘steps’.
“Other than Self Inquiry there are no adequate means to make the mind permanently subside.” – Ramana
