A detailed description of the mystical journey to Absolute Truth from Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee.  At the root of every mystical calling is the search for what is Real; this book follows this call, detailing the inner journey to Absolute Truth. Readers are guided through traditional experiences of the path—emptiness and the void, oneness, and communion with nature. Particular direction is given for how contemporary seekers can—and must—engage with challenges unique to our times, such as extreme materialism and ecological devastation. A pioneer in the subject of Spiritual Ecology Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee offers spiritual guidance on the vital need to restore a sacred connection to life and the environment. For Love of the Real is a much needed in-depth exploration of the contribution spiritual life can make to our present environmental crisis.
