Love is a universal energy—and a primary force that powers our movement toward spiritual illumination. All the ways we need love are simply reflections of our need for spiritual growth. A. H. Almaas explores three dimensions of love: appreciative love—the true liking of somebody or something; merging or connecting love—a force that melts away separateness; and passionate, ecstatic love—which is capable of consuming us from inside. In their own way, each reveals the beauty and exquisiteness of our spiritual heart, which is the heart of the divine. He also examines the obstacles that prevent us from connecting to love. Practices throughout the book help the reader experience the presence of love and work through the obstacles and misunderstandings in the way of its realization.
