The Bardo State
The Bardo doesn’t come after our next death, we’re actually in the Bardo now and as a result the Bardo that we are manifesting, we think is “like a physical world” that we leave when the body dies, but in fact the Bardo is “this” world and it’s always the world of your current experience as your projection.
You are manifesting your Bardo in this moment and in every moment,while thinking it is some pre-bardo, “objectively real”, physical dimension.
Experience is always subjectively real… not objectively real. The “death of the body” is just another Bardo event occurring in the same Bardo.
Otherwise, there would be a dualism between objective “physical reality” and the subjective Bardo state.
