If you do so, you will find the solution to many of your inner problems and to situations that until now you have thought insoluble. If you are to see and understand and receive influences from the spiritual world, you have to be fully present.

They gaze into each other’s eyes, and when they want to describe what they have seen they speak only of light and vastness. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov   Daily Meditations
