TO INNER WORK

TURNING 4
In the fourth turning, enlightenment and
realization are seen to have many meanings.
Not only are there different degrees of
realization, but there are also different kinds
of realization. We discover many angles
and perspectives from which to view and
explore reality.
TURNING 3
In the third turn, the freedom vehicle signals a
move beyond the boundlessness, unity, and
nonduality of True Nature. It presents reality
from an entirely different vantage. We are
investigating the same phenomena that we
always have, but from a radically different angle.

TURNING 2
In the second turning of the wheel, the soul realizes
her true nature and that there is no existence
without it. This awakening brings in the nondual
perspective, which can lead to many other
experiences of reality. TURNING 1
The first turning of the teaching wheel reveals that

The pearl beyond price is the true essential


personality. When the individual finally perceives it,
the sense is of oneself as a precious being. Nothing
the pearl
is lacking. The person feels "now I have myself. I am
a complete individual. I want nothing else."

The Diamond vehicles function like spaceships, carrying our


consciousness to exotic worlds. Each vehicle takes us to a
different universe, with different qualities constituting the building
blocks of reality. Diamond vehicles resemble spaceships in that
they are vehicles that travel in inner space, taking our attention to
the furthest reaches of reality.

PSYCHOLOGY
To abandon the wealth of knowledge developed
from psychology would deprive us of powerful tools
for self-knowledge. We need modern psychology
to hold the ancient way of understanding the soul
SPIRITUALITY while embracing and employing modern
understanding and research methods.

Spirituality involves seeing reality as it is


what actually is there, physical or non-physical.
In the Diamond Approach, this occurs through
open-ended inquiry, in which the student is
invited to investigate his feelings to discover
their truth within his personal experience.

The Diamond Approach is oriented towards
the natural and spontaneous revelation of the
truth of the Soul as one investigates one's
experience. It is a lengthy, deep process, rich
with surprises, full of difficulties of all kinds,
and replete with color and significance.
