Abstract: Ken Wilber expounds on five major traditions focus on ridding oneself of illusion, which prevents one from awakening. This paper summarizes these five traditions approach to awakening, and then suggests how each one is true but partial, in that they each seem to favor one of the three sets of quadratic poles, the interior/exterior, the individual/collective and the insides and outsides, and how practices supported by all three polar pairs may open the way for a triadic awakening suggested by the quadrant map.
