In Ajah Dharma it is understood that there are two stages of perception and it is also understood that a true Spiritual master can switch between them at will. for example the Buddha would enjoy unified existance in meditation but would return to dualistic existance to teach people…
If you are Awakened, If you understand your unity, you are a god, a deity, Ajah(God) with attributes, with a mind & body…
Also called dualistic enlightenment. For one knows that one is supreme, and are free from illusion. But still desiring to accomplish things keeps one wanting for a body, and therefore will still want to get another body, and still enjoys dualistic existence as one still has a personality. However through sacred knowledge, one is able to navigate the Bardo or the empty space were awareness goes after death, and may desire to be desireless for the sake of liberation from rebirth, ergo one attains Nirvana.
Often Awakened people will practice a discipline to maintain correct vision. As well as have faith and call upon the dualistic expression of the supreme higher self which is the Great Spirit

If you are fully liberated, if you understand your unity & are devoid of desire,you are emptiness, you are God without attributes, you are holy nothingness, and you renounced the mind & body…
Also called non-dual enlightenment
This is the state of renouncement, a state of pure bliss were the jiva(the individual) renounces all worldly action. When ones awareness is shifted from the body&mind to the spirit. While resting in the unmovable spirit, one lives in a state of unified bliss, and may even wander off at times because the lack of good and bad feelings.
Unified existence is called Samhadi and is attained through the discipline of meditation.
