Glad you also saw how it fits, Karta.
In regards to your comment, though,
can you read the two paragraphs below
and see how transcendance sort of
encompasses......is like a big umbrella over...
or maybe even over-rides, integration?
<<Unlike transcendence, integration occurs in the horizontal plane. It extends
the ideal of wholeness to the conditional personality and its social nexus.
Yet, integration makes sense only when the conditional personality and the
conditional world are not treated as irrevocable opponents of the ultimate
Reality but are valued as manifestations of it.
Having discovered the Divine in the depths of his or her own soul, the adept
must then find the Divine in all life. This is, in fact, the adept's
principal obligation and responsibility. To put it differently, having drunk
at the fountain of life, the adept must complete the spiritual opus and
practice compassion on the basis of the recognition that everything
participates in the universal field of the Divine.>>
