Direct realization versus love and devotion for God with form – are these two paths mutually exclusive? David Newman (Durga Das) tells of an unexpected inner journey that led him to ask himself: Was I leaving my devotional path behind, or was the pursuit of a conclusive spiritual awakening the very revelation that the path itself had indicated? David’s journey started with what he calls a ‘lightning bolt’, which led him to question his own identity. With heart-warming honesty, he relates how the integration of the two paths came about through unwavering grace. What I was initially most afraid of ultimately brought the greatest gift.
