Hameed Ali: We don’t have two loves

We don’t have two loves. We have only one love—because there is only one reality. This points again to the juxtaposition of the two terms ‘divine’ and ‘eros.’ The first represents the spiritual world and the second represents this world, but divine eros combines them. When we see their reality, we recognize that they are inseparable. They are not only inseparable, they are one. When we see the spirit completely for what it is, we know that what is called the spiritual universe is nothing but the true underlying condition of this world.

—A. H. Almaas, from The Power of Divine Eros, page 57
