The work has taught me to trust my experience and understanding and the wisdom of inquiry to support that development. This has allowed me to settle into my life in a way that is authentic, real, and satisfying, and to find a loving acceptance of self and others. The circumstances of my life and relationships improved and became more realistic. I had always viewed spiritual work as an adventure, but never imagined how surprising and satisfying the journey would be.
When I read one of Hameed Ali's (founder of the Diamond Approach) books I felt an immediate resonance with the teaching that was confirmed again when I joined a group. The practices were effective in opening me up, revealing my conditioning and limitations and helping me access essential states. The unfolding of my process became reliable and consistent, and in time led to further realizations.
