I have learned that reality is a pure unity that is neither divided or hierarchical. I have learned the freedom of that perspective as it invites a respect and an honoring of all that arises without the struggle of thinking anything could be different or better than it is. I have learned that the good news is that there is no end to the Journey as the Mystery never stops unfolding. I have learned that steadfast love of truth is the most loyal and powerful traveling companion on this inner journey home.
I would like my students to know that as a teacher i feel privileged and blessed that i get to walk with them on this amazing journey to freedom. That I see each student as a unique manifestation of Being with a unique history that reveals the secrets of their soul's unfoldment. That we will co-create the field of teacher-student that best supports their Inner Work.
After years of sitting at the feet of others who had attained realization, I was attracted to the Diamond Approach because it was the first spiritual path that supported me to make the turn inward from seeking outside of myself, from seeking answers with my mind to seeking them in my heart, from believing that there is an 'end state' I need to reach to recognizing that there is no better or higher place to be that where I am in this moment.
The most important thing for people to understand about the DA is that it is an Inner Journey that requires dedication and commitment. That it is a spiritual path that invites, and in a certain way demands, the inward turn as the answers we seek to alleviate our suffering and to attain inner peace can only be discovered and integrated by a dedicated practice of self-inquiry and a love for truth for its own sake.
