What emerged for the participants in this seminar—and, we hope, for the readers of this book—is the recognition that the bringing together of our animalistic impulses with the angelic sacredness of our spiritual nature in our human experience can contribute to the journey toward wholeness. We can live fully as physical beings on Earth, inseparable from knowing ourselves as the exalted transcendent truth of spirit. The integration of these levels of existence will allow us to experience the dynamic living presence of our spiritual nature pouring into the world, taking on form and living through that form as who we are in our uniqueness—all the while never stopping being the totality of all.

Many teachings enable us to realize the unity of Being. And there are many ways to reach or recognize the nondual condition, the primordially natural condition of our Being and our consciousness. Our approach here is that of uniting the animal and the angel, our animal nature and our angelic or divine nature. Human beings possess the potential to integrate these two parts of ourselves even though we begin as animals. That is, we begin life as babies with the animal drive dominant, and our animal nature continues to be a very important part of us. No matter how much we want to disown our animal aspect, it is not possible, because we are animal in our physicality.

The type of love we are talking about doesn’t differentiate between appreciation and desire, between love and eros, between the divine and the animal. That is why, when the soul has developed in a way that unifies the animal and the angel, we call it the divine animal. Another expression for it is “the lusty angel.” what is a lusty angel? It is a soul that is full of desire but it is still angelic, which means that it is pure, total light. It is the luminous force of the mystery of unity that all souls are looking for, and they are seeking it because it is driving them together with its magnetism. We might believe that we are searching, but in fact we are simply being attracted. The more that we feel we are not in control, the more fortunate we are.
