“After renewed studies of Advaita, Buddhism, as well as modern approaches like Ken Wilber’s Integral it became very clear to me that no approach is holding an ultimate answer alone. Rather they are all peaces in the puzzles of a vast ever changing universe.
My current understanding is, that the ultimate truth is not just located in a male approach of Absolute or Nirvana, but is equally present in the female aspects of an ever-changing manifestation. Consciousness and Love or Absolute and Manifestation belong inseparable together. This leads me on a “Path of Paradox”, and a much more encompassing view.” (Jaya)
