So much analysis always gives more confusion. :rolleye:
I suggest more intellectual minimalism... :meditate:

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

How are eternalism and strict duality supposed to lead to a recognition of our non-dual nature? Can a Christian attain enlightenment? Sure. But that doesn't mean they will, or that the odds are in their favor. As far as being a Dzogchenpa and an Eternalist, it simply doesn't make sense. Once you have a direct experience of the nature of mind, to continue believing in God, or the concrete reality of good and evil, would require massive amounts of cognitive dissonance. To imply that Christian, Jewish, or Muslim practice is actually leading to a realization of the Great Perfection is rather disrespectful to those traditions.
