Love and Emptiness
A.H. Almaas is the pen name of A. Hameed Ali, the originator of the Diamond Approach to Self-Realization. The Diamond Approach is a path of wisdom, an approach to the investigation of Reality, and a method of working on oneself that leads to human maturity and liberation. It is a spiritual teaching, a method of connecting with our spiritual nature and bringing it into our life. The Diamond Approach represents a new paradigm in human/spiritual knowledge and understanding. It is not a synthesis of existing knowledge, but rather a new, more integrated understanding of the entire human psyche - ego, personality, soul - and the psyche's relationship with its fundamental nature.
- Love is the fuel that allows life to thrive and survive, even in difficult circumstances.
- Love is a powerful force that can bring about a feeling of freedom and effectiveness in our lives.
- When we recognize the truth of being and the nature of everything, we understand that love is not separate from the source of existence.
- When someone is loved and receives love, they seem to flourish and thrive.
- When we truly examine reality and its depth, we realize that it is not just about external interactions, but about the inherent nature of reality itself.
- The fundamental truth of reality is not solely based on the objects we see, but rather on the luminosity and presence that underlies everything.
