HAMEED ALI (A. H. ALMAAS), PH.D.
Founder of the Diamond Approach®


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FgGZ1xBAQw

Does perception in nondual or other kinds of spiritual realization reveal what reality actually is?
Many teachings emphasize that enlightenment is seeing how things actually are.
However, the vision of reality given by the various teachings vary in significant ways.
Does this mean one of them is the right one or are all correct?
What are the implications about reality in either case?
I will present a vision of perception in spiritual realization that parallels the view in quantum theory
of the relation between the observer and reality.
Since in spiritual realization reality is more fundamental than the observer, actually manifesting the observer,
the vision brings in the subtleties of realization and why there are many kinds.

Reality becomes a much more mysterious truth than the view of any kind of realization,
which requires encompassing the various views of enlightenment.



Hameed Ali (A. H. Almaas)
was born in the Middle East, but at age 18 he moved to the USA to study at the University of California in Berkeley.
Hameed was working on his Ph.D. in physics, where he was studying Einsteirn's theory of general relativity
and nuclear physics, when he reached a turning point in his life and destiny that led him more and more into inquiring
into the psychological and spiritual aspects of human nature. Hameed is the founder of the Diamond Approach®
- a spiritual teaching that utilizes a unique kind of inquiry into realization, where the practice is the expression of realization.

Freedom is living our realization, a dynamic enlightenment where our transcendent nondual truth lives personally in the world.
This inquiry opens up the infinite creativity of our Being, transforming our lives into a runaway realization,
moving from realization to further realization.

We are spirit, expressing what we will.
We act out perSONAs on our stage of iMAGEination.
We are both the dreamer & the dream.
I think therefore I am.
I am consciousness & potentiality

This was good!  I like him.  I like the fact that he didn't devalue the individual experience.  He said that the individual experience is the 'spice' and is where relationships and morality have meaning.  I think this is so important.   Yes we are all the same consciousness but the individual expression of it is of no less value than the 'all.'

Each constituent within the encompassing all may be different. The whole once seen is a wonderment of all it contains.
Much like the pocket watch, all parts serve a purpose, any fail and it is a pocket-watch no more.
