I think of that underlying One in immanent terms, a being or life force that dwells within the universe and all its forms, rather than a Creator from beyond who forms a world that is "other" and separate from its own Self.
Incorrect.

The ultimate reality is neither immanent nor extra-cosmic but it is the Manifestation or the Cosmos itself.

An immanence would mean that the origin is different from the substance and dynamics of the manifestation/cosmos and so it would mean that this origin somehow created the materials and energies from nothing and then infused the creation to guide it from within.

The origin is the source of the materials as well as of the energy - the materials/energies are its own substance - and as such the origin has partially manifested itself and its manifested substance itself forms the graduated cosmos and guides it functionally through an innate causal mechanism.

The origin which is a unified field of consciousness-energy has various poises - immanent, transcendent and absolute - in its unmanifest as well as manifest state.

The origin in manifestation itself becomes the cosmos.

Why cant you accept that many religions are in fact monotheistic...
Monotheism means the worship of one being among several others who are its rivals.

This is why we read in the monotheistic scriptures serious threats issued by a particular being against worshipping other gods (its rival beings).

"I am a jealous being (G-d)!".

These are the inferior cults of the world that have ensnared in their nets billions of myopic followers with each bunch of deluded followers believing that a particular being that it worships (to the exclusion of all other beings) is the Supreme God or whatever and the being worshipped loves arrogating to itself the grand title of the Supreme Ruler and Supreme Creator of the universe. LOL.

Monism is far superior to monotheism but it is flawed in its highest reach as explained in a previous post a few days ago.

meditation
Meditation on the activated archetypal mantra/vibration is one method of merging in the plane of existence that the mantra personifies either as sound or as mechanism of sound. There are other superior methods of entering the 200 odd trance states....I am not revealing the details now.

And probably it was really a merge, no one would be able to return to tell us about it.
Who said that no one would return to tell of the union of the subject with the object in consciousness-energy?

The aim is to cause the plane of consciousness-energy in which the individual's activated consciousness-energy has united to descend and infuse the individual's human equivalents of mind, vital, subtle physical, gross physical and subconscient to bring about radical changes in being.

To make the trance state (of whatever degree) the permanent state of consciousness at all times is the aim.

There are 200 odd trance states.....

That's why shamanism.....
Shamanism can only take the individual's consciousness as high as the lower vital plane where one encounters all kinds of vital beings usually the adverse ones. The major Asuras are in the higher vital plane though they're in full control of the lower vital as well.

So, shamanism is highly inferior and dangerous.

Thats not the error of these cults. The error is that they preach nonbrotherly love to those who have different labels.

By labeling some inferior you have just elevated your own God to above the fray - see the irony? You are the pagan, not them.

Sheez, you are not as special as you think you are. Google and Amazon.Com will reveal just as many methods as you can.

An immanence would mean that the origin is different from the substance and dynamics of the manifestation/cosmos and so it would mean that this origin somehow created the materials and energies from nothing and then infused the creation to guide it from within.

Like I said, it is a matter of semantics to describe different states of consciousness.

Considering you and I have no real way to describe the qualitative states of our own states of consciousness in a meaningful way to share them to each other, why do you think anyone can accurately describe or compare what might happen pre- and post- with a more intensive trance?

I am not going to put effort into rebutting your comments on the article I posted - this isnt my intent. Its all a matter of subjective opinion anyhow.

My intent was to post an alternative framework.

How come?

Monotheism means the worship of just one being among numerous beings.

Don't YHVH, Allah and other inferior beings warn their respective followers of severe punishment if they happen to worship other gods/beings?

This clearly shows that YHVH and Allah with their anthropathetic traits wish to be the dominant being over and above their rivals (other beings).

Which by the way isnt that different than yours - I still think you force your interpretations of other people's ideas too much into the literalistic and personal.

I don't worship any being/God.

The Ultimate Reality is a system or a unified field of consciousness-energy that in partial manifestation gives rise to the graduated cosmos and to the archetypal beings of the various cosmic planes like YHVH, Allah, Baal, Moloch, Vishnu, Shiva, Lucifer and others.

Laughably, each one of these archetypal beings styles itself as
G-d/God and warns its followers of dire consequences if they worship other beings (their rivals). LOL.

You are telling other people what they are worshipping.

With all due respect that is arrogant.
