In our journey to realization of the “Authenticity” of what we truly are, we often find that we want this authentic Living Presence to be available to those persons we care about. We find that we are interested in other’s recognition of their Authenticity, their True Nature. this naturally brings in the question of relationship with ourself and other. this interest in relationship is fundamental to human beings. it sparks a curious interest about other and a desire for their happiness and well being. So when we look more closely, we may find that it is not our well being alone that interests us. We could speak of this interest, this curiosity and heartfelt desire as the function of a “flame”. It is a “Flame” that is an aspiration for the Truth of what we authentically are inseparable from the Truth of what others are. So we naturally want to live and be that Truth with ourselves and others. it is truly a living “Flame” that resides in the heart of our living consciousness. As it becomes fired by the heart’s unceasing love of what is true, it ignites our soul’s journey in all aspects of living, whether it be in our own most intimate practices or in relationship with others. It ignites a true wish for all of humanity. We want to explore this aspiration for true relating, for true relationship, from the perspective of the Diamond Approach logos. We hope to ignite and touch that flame in this presentation. Perhaps we can touch this curiosity together and discover the “Flame of the Path” as it relates to relating with other.
