From beloved author and teacher A. H. Almaas, an exploration of love beyond the boundaries of the individual self, reveals that nondual love is the nature of everything, including ourselves.
Love is a transformative aspect of the spiritual path—and, in fact, it is our very nature. A. H. Almaas takes us on a journey beyond a narrow, individual understanding of love to an exploration of what he calls the boundless dimension of Divine Love. This is not the kind of love that we feel toward somebody else; it is nondual, a love without boundaries. Or put another way, it is universal true nature experienced as love.
By shifting our focus beyond our individual human experience to the experience of the whole of existence, we are able to see the true richness of the universe. All of reality takes on a quality of inner light, of softness and ease, of sweetness and holding. When we are open to the dimension of nondual love, we can relax and trust our inner ground that is also the ground of everything: our true nature, free from limitations—a sense of complete release, freedom, and delight, that is free of conflict, fear, insecurity, and worry. Almaas discusses the obstacles that make it difficult to awaken to true nature in this form, such as our belief in a separate self and our past conditioning. Each chapter includes an inquiry or practice, such as explorations of attachments and worldly desires as well as inquiries into union, surrender, and grace.
A. H. Almass, the author of more than a dozen books, is the pen name of A. Hameed Ali, the originator of the Diamond Approach to the realization of our true nature. Since 1976 he has guided individuals and groups through his school of inner work, the Ridhwan School, which has branches in California, Colorado, and Europe.
