The table below is an attempt to provide a map for a large variety of spiritual journeys based on personal interests and challenges. Please note that the list of modalities is not comprehensive and the terms are not strictly limited to the categories in which they appear.

The purpose of the table is not to create separation between the columns, and divide reality into levels. On the contrary, it is to show that the differences are only perceived from the first perspective of Conventional duality.

Once this process has begun, it naturally gains momentum. It is important to note that the process deepens in a spiral-like shape - all questions are asked at all levels, and the answers gradually change based on the level of Consciousness that the question is asked from. Your journey of spiritual seeking is complete once all questions have been understood from the perspective of Non-dual Awareness, which automatically leads to Embodied understanding.
