The Interplay of Grace and Effort on a Nondual Path

Featured Video

From the Archives: In a talk from 1993, A.H. Almaas discusses impeccability in terms of doing this Work, the Diamond Approach, and brings in a paradox related to impeccability. There’s a danger for the ego to believe that what happens in the Work is the result of the ego’s efforts and actions. This brings in the paradox. Almaas also talks about the perspectives of Chesed and Geburah, usually translated as mercy and severity, or abundance and might.
