One cannot "become" something.
One already is!
That's it.
End of story.

It is far from being the end of story

It is far from being the end of story, otherwise we were all enlightened, and evidently we are not.

For the neo Advaitans it is indeed the end of story and it is so pity they get stuck at that point.

Our becoming is less important whether there is becoming or not, the point is that our realization indeed needs to become, to become truly aware (not just intellectually) that which we are, and there is a need for this becoming, dismissing this is refusing to see our current state of being identified with the mind and body and refusing to see that all people around are not enlightened and suffer.
