In this book, we incorporate wisdom from Zoroastrianism on the angels of transformation and the Archangel of the Earth; from Ibn 'Arabi on the barzakh (the interface between manifestation and subtle reality), creative imagination, and the human-divine relationship; from Hazrat Inayat Khan, Pir Vilayat, and Pir Zia on contemporary Sufi teachings which state that every desire begins with a divine impulse and that the purpose of spirituality is awakening of divinity in life; as well as from realizations from the authors' meditations, inspirations, and spiritual dialogues which form the basis what they call the Gabrielite Work. Everyone has the potential to awaken to their existence in multiple realms of reality, and to contribute in a unique way from the fullness of their being to the never ending human-divine co-creative process.
