Because eternalism does not give up the view of an existing self, whether a god is considered intermediate or supreme, there is still the cause of passions and karma, even though the way the appearances of gods arise seems positive according to history or an individual's experience and excels beyond the appearances of ordinary human beings. Since self is not purified, self produces cause and effect. Whenever there is cause and effect, a possessor comes, and there is samsara no matter what aspect of gods arises.
They are just arising; there is no reality. Even if one thinks of them for many eons, to take immeasurable samsara and enlightenment into the path of enlightenment, just arising, there is no reality. Whenever sleeping, still there is sustaining. Even sleep is the unobstructed state. Whenever dreams arise, there is no dream. Just stay in sole awareness mind. Like a bed, one is there relaxing. As Kunkhyen Longchenpa said: In unobstructed space, Whatever comes, Just as it arises, There is nothing exact, Not any reality.
