The journey into authentic nondual experience usually entails an ongoing experience of paradox, and one of the great paradoxes of nondual teachings is the apparent dichotomy between the vast stillness and openness of our fundamental consciousness and the visceral sense of being here—embodied and open-hearted. It takes a while before many of us discover that the way to genuine nondual awareness is through deeply embodied presence. Without this, our realizations tend to turn into memories, and lead to various dissociative or detached positions that are actually ego defenses against suffering.

Indeed, each of the nine points represent a particular transformational pathway from the dense suffering of egoic existence into the embodied qualities the awakened heart.
