Excerpt About Philosophers' Stone
The philosophers’ stone is nonconditional freedom. This freedom is not conditioned by a particular state, by a particular view, or by a particular realization. In this freedom, we can be dual, we can be nondual, we can be nonlocal, and we can be none of these; we can also not be at all. Each one of us is a human individual—a particular manifestation of Total Being—but as we awaken to true nature and explore reality from the perspective of true nature, we realize that we are also Total Being. We are always Total Being because everything is Total Being. Total Being is everything, and it is each particular thing, and each particular thing is everything. And we are the particular thing that can know all this. The particular is simply the other side of the whole, a truth that does not arise in nondual realization, but rather from realization of unilocal unity.
