Summary

This book of essays presents the essential teachings of the Western Baul spiritual master Lee Lozowick, with special emphasis on what he has named "Enlightened Duality". This dynamic spiritual principle suggests that one can combine a firmly-rooted and integrated awareness of the non-dual ("all is One") nature of reality, with a lively, conscious relationship to the "duality" (or play of opposites) that characterises our everyday lives. Unlike those strictly non-dual perspectives that support a "oneness" that relegates the human experience to an illusion of mind, Lozowick asserts that "unity is the law" and "Life is Real". The individual who has incorporated Enlightened Duality lives in a state of union with the Divine while remaining naturally functional within the world of appearances. Many essays focus on relationships, both personal and planetary -- dealing with love, sex, family, and the ecology of the Earth. Because this integration of spiritual principles into the whirl of daily relational life is often so challenging, a student's perspective is offered throughout the book in essays by M Young, a long-time apprentice of Lozowick's. Readers may encounter here a "living truth" that will stir a resonance in their minds and hearts. Such a living truth may be revelatory, healing, and deeply satisfying, but it may also be profoundly unsettling. It may shake the ground beneath our feet. Yet, as the authors assert, such provocation is desirable to one who wants to fully live!
