just some thoughts about g/Gods, religion, Theosophy, Zen, Buddhism, Leon's ABC's, etc

Seems to me that life, karma and maya on this plane
are intertwined, (or made the same, in a sense), with
the result that, what seems like "reality" is, at the same
time, in a sense, a realistic story that's sustained by
karma, or sustained by the various preceding
(collective/individualistic) stories or karmic effects. I
tend to believe that when we dream we're exercising a
kind of inherent, basic, creative freedom of thought re
some chosen elements of our stories, (ie, whether or
not our "waking selves" will consider having
knowingly chosen those elements), so that we might
deal with, or think about and asses topics that are, or
might be in the background or relevant background of
our story, or reality.
As I tend to see it, the Esoteric Tradition is all about
exercising our inherent, basic freedom (a "freedom"
that's apparently layered with karma/maya, in some
"higher sense"?) in order to transcend the various
realities of our various karmic/mayavic stories.
Transcend where? I suspect that that "where" is not
relevant in the sense that any "exoteric" explanation
about that, no matter from whom, no matter how
worded, tends to unavoidably become so much more
story telling, or karma/maya, though "reading between
the lines" of such exoterics may be helpful, or might
be seen to have a "bridging effect toward esoterics."
Apparently that creative "reading between the lines"
of life has led to karmic/mayavic reality-stories (or
"reality" stories?) about g/Gods, religions, Theosophy,
Zen, Buddhism, Leon's ABC's, etc? Not that such
stories can not be helpful, but/"but"... ?
