A. H. Almaas is the pen name of A. Hameed Ali, founder of the Diamond Approach to Self-Realization, a contemporary teaching that developed within the context of both ancient spiritual teachings and modern depth psychology theories. Almaas has authored eighteen books about spiritual realization, including the Diamond Heart series, The Pearl Beyond Price, The Void, and The Alchemy of Freedom.

He is the founder of the Ridhwan School for Spiritual Development, an inner work school devoted to the realization of True Nature. The orientation of the school is directed toward guiding students to realize their true nature to the fullest realization and further still to endless enlightenment.

Another example is that of radical nonlocality, where the meaning of unity of existence goes through a profound transformation. It becomes nonspatial unity. This nonspatial sense of unity recognizes that each form of manifestation is at once all the other forms. Each form of reality is totally united with all other forms—not in terms of perceived space, which has the sense of all forms being differently located waves of the same ocean, but absolutely, in the sense that all the waves are actually the same wave, all the points are actually the same point.

The Diamond Approach views reality as inherently indefinite, and this indefiniteness lies at the heart of its aliveness and freedom. Even in its indefiniteness, reality reveals that it possesses a distinct purity—what I have termed at different times “true nature,” “essential nature,” or “being”—as the ground of all manifestation, as the irreducible perfection at the very heart of all and everything.
