I know it’s wrong to desire liberation, but is it wrong to desire God realization?

God realization is the correct thing to desire. “Realizing” God means you get to meet Him in His personal form and experience Him with all five senses. In the state of liberation, you do not actually “realize” God, because it is a state of no experience where you have no mind, body or senses, so how could you experience? In the state of liberation, you have no awareness of anything, even your own existence, so even though you are merged in God Who is the ocean of bliss, but you don’t experience that bliss. But in God realization, you realize or experience the bliss.
