Dzogchen mentioned below is Mahamudra in Ati yoga, the ultimate path and attainment in Tantric Buddhism.
Our Holy texts, especially Liber B vel Magi, describes this exact stage of awareness:
"...the ultimate power of Infinity. Wherein Sorrow is Joy, and Change is Stability, and Selflessness is Self." (Liber B, 16.)
The stage of awareness described below is "...the grade of Ipsissimus the Mystery of Selflessness, which is called also the Mystery of Pan." (Liber B, 15.)
"The everyday practice of dzogchen is just everyday life itself.
Since the undeveloped state does not exist, there is no need to behave in any special way or attempt to attain anything above and beyond what you actually are. There should be no feeling of striving to reach some "amazing goal" or "advanced state."
To strive for such a state is a neurosis which only conditions us and serves to obstruct the free flow of Mind. We should also avoid thinking of ourselves as worthless persons - we are naturally free and unconditioned. We are intrinsically enlightened and lack nothing."
- Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Tantric Master (emphasis mine)
Of course, from the perspective of Thelema, in my opinion, living like it is described above translates to executing the Will at the ultimate level, beautifully beautifully expressed by our Ra-Hoor-Khuit in Liber AL (III. 60):
"There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt."
It is not just that 'we are naturally free and unconditioned', as shared above, even more! There is NO need for denying anything, no need to renounce pleasures or to cut off love, money, sex etc in everyday life. Complete openess and acceptance of everyhing and integrating everything into spiitual path - that's what Heruraha and His new eon brought us.
