Looks a little like you're fishing for the results of other perple's work or maybe looking for a short cut where there can be none. A subconscious PUSH to get you onto a Path?
Especially during the whirlwind 1 year around the world trip that you have planned. When will you catch your breath and stop being distracted.
I'd suggest that if you go to India expect that it will take time there to learn even a few answers. Of course be warned that it'll probably take you many years before you're even able to discover the right questions to ask. The credentials you've expressed won't impress anybody anywhere that serious work is being done.
In other words, maybe better to approach India as a humble Seeker instead of "somebody" that thinks he has some of the answers There are people in the World serious about the Spiritual Path but even if you could spot them what makes you think they'd speak honestly to you? . The world is full of charlatans that already know that you won't know the difference.
Maybe better to set your sights on doing your own work, on your own Self. Spend some time in Dharamsala (during the summer), learn about life in the train station in Old Delhi; or on the banks of the Ganga, or smoking hash with the Monks in Manali, and all of life and death that happens inbetween: the Camel Festival, the Flea Market, the Pink City, Jalsamere and the flow of life.
Which is why i think some of the first issues you should tackle the objective reality of consciousness

Yes I am aware of Awareness and everything that entails that aspect of True-Self.
I wish you were joking but I doubt that you are. Some think that it's important to help yourself first in order to be able to help "Humanity" at a later point, if at all.
Perhaps you have the cart before the horse and maybe better to start with Meditation, Solitude, and Prayer you mention in ordser to discover the life that comes your way.
And perhaps a better position to take with any true Master should you encounter them (which I doubt), is to keep your mouth shut about your opinions on awareness and the True Self. Freiendly advice Grasshopper.
More so, what is God, where, and how does one connect or experience this as a reality ...based on a multitude of different cultures and backgrounds. The viewer can take away from it what they wish.....
