Why YOU Are Your Ultimate Relationship by Ron Levy offers a way to progress in these uncertain times by encouraging a vision of an enriched state of living with practical ways of growing in that direction. Levy describes his Inner Alignment Method and gives explicit instructions for practicing simple exercises that lead to healing. In his gentle way, Levy encourages releasing old patterns and improving life by connecting with oneself lovingly, compassionately, and respectfully. Through real-life stories, he teaches how to reach out to others, while growing and building a solid internal relationship.
This authentic, warm, and loving book is valuable to me as a psychologist as it describes a useful therapeutic technique with excellent examples. It also offers an enhanced way of life through becoming comfortable with “not knowing.” Not knowing provides freedom from clinging to any one perspective or belief, and allows us to greet new ideas with interest and enthusiasm. I recommend this book highly for those seeking to enrich their lives.

Ron possesses the profound gift of spiritual insight and the keen skills of a highly seasoned therapist. His Inner Alignment Training provides the key to true healing and hope to all who have suffered the pain of living in the cloud of self-unknowing. His work leads those of us willing to take this journey to our primary identity and the truth of our being.
We are all magnificent creations of the Divine and Ron’s great pathway teaches us how to discover the hidden memories that limit our self-perceptions and prevent our understanding of and connection with who and what we are. This leads us to true self-awareness, healing, and living our true expression of the Divine. Well done, my dear brother, well done!

The author dedicates his book to “the Infinite Child within us all.” For a spiritual theologian who has been trying for decades to rattle the cage of tired religious dogmas to get to what matters, I am delighted to hear not only of Ron Levy’s understanding of what a mature human being can be, but also of his practices that assist the birth of that “infinite Child” and that assist people, however deeply wounded, to heal themselves and bring that “Cosmic Christ” alive within them.
His language of the “True Adult” that we are all meant to be echoes the teaching that we are all mystics (lovers of life) and prophets (warriors of compassion who are to interfere with injustice and brokenness). It celebrates the “true self” that often lies hidden within us. His reminder that we are all children who constitute a community of Children (every mystic is a puer, puella or child in love with life) here to support one another is like the traditional teaching of the “communion of saints” who are, in his words, “making love with life.”
His call to live in a state of “not knowing” parallels the teachings of the via negativa as expressed by Meister Eckhart who champions the “transformed knowledge” of “unkowing” that discovers anew that “unborn self” in all of us that is yearning to be released and, once touched, brings about a real rebirth.
I celebrate this book and its author and the many people it will assist to heal and become whole and become their true selves, that is their mystical and compassionate selves again.
