Book Description

Sept. 5 2000 The Diamond Heart Series (Book 2)
We live in a world of mystery, wonder, and beauty. But most of us seldom participate in this real world, being focused rather on the parts that are mostly strife, suffering, or meaninglessness. The situation is basically due to our not realizing and living our full human potential. This potential can be actualized by the realization and development of human essence. The human essence is the part of us that is innate and real, and which can participate in the real world.

The series of books Diamond Heart are transcriptions of talks given by A. H. Almaas to inner work groups in Colorado and California.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heart that shines. Sept. 12 2002
This is the second book in A. H. Almaas's four-part Diamond Heart series. "We live in a world of mystery, wonder, and beauty," he observes in the Preface to this book, "but most of us seldom participate in this real world, being aware rather of a world that is mostly strife, suffering, or meaninglessness" (p. i). In the series of twelve inner-work teachings collected here (e.g., "Hanging Loose," "Acceptance," "Love," and "Being Oneself"), Almaas integrates Sufism, Zen and Vajrayana Buddhism with Gurdjieff and modern psychology into what he calls "the Diamond Approach" to self realization, and as the book's subtitle suggests, into "the freedom to be." This is a "Heart" that shines like a diamond.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another spiritual evolutionary step Nov. 16 2007
By S. Gardner - Published on Amazon.com
The Diamond Heart books are not for everyone but are priceless for those who have been working with themselves for sometime. The transcripts of talks given don't make this a reference book but rather a way to absorb organically the teachings of A. H. Almaas. These teachings and guidance make the subtle differences to our previous understandings and introduce us to the nuances of the world's greatest spiritual teachings in a soft, gentle and expansive manner that befits the subject matter.

The Freedom To Be comes from the cessation of the fight with the ego mind and the expansion of perception that allows all to be within. I found it enormously helpful to me in shifting my energy from 'trying' to 'being'.
5.0 out of 5 stars Know Thyself March 19 2014

Every one of us in the world need the knowing and understanding that Mr. Almaas shares in this (and all his other) book(s). For this reviewer, the old maxim, "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear", has proven true in this work. If you have pushed yourself into the far reaches of the Impersonal Beyond through years of study and meditation, but still feel a lack, a faint, lingering shadow of doubt concerning your being as a Person as well as the Impersonal, then waste not another moment... Purchase and read these works. There is some of the most practical and helpful spiritual writing here that I have seen in decades of truth seeking. This work is not for the idly curious. But if you are sincere about getting at the truth of yourself, and being that truth, I.e. being yourself fully and freely, then you may find this material as helpful as I have.

Searching about universal love.
Very entertaining to read, it's good for people who has been searching for little while, but not found them yet.
After that I bought Ouspensky book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Advanced and difficult to relate Nov. 14 2012
By M. Troyka - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've changed my mind about this book since I first reviewed it. The information in this book is really only helpful or meaningful if you've already realized most or all of the essences at the basic level first. The major downside is that Mr. Almaas tries to relate everything to the absolute most of the time, which isn't very helpful in understanding or taking meaningful action in the second phase of the journey.
