Spirituality is that part of us that is most loving, vital, wise, powerful, and tender. It is our connection with the Divine.

Spirituality is a very individual matter and yet the path to God is available to all humans. Our real work is the spiritual work. It is up to you to pursue your spirituality in the way and the intensity of your choosing. What is important is to know you can make progress. As to what exactly you pursue, you must know what is right and true for you.

Spirituality doesn’t come in a handy course like a frozen dinner that you can toss in your shopping cart, then throw in a microwave and consume. Spirituality is a path, a way of life to follow. There are new principles to follow, attitudes to inculcate, disciplines to practice, profound changes to undergo in your relationship to your mind, the world, others, and God. It is reversing your way of being from being in thrall to the senses and the lower mind to the soul being in control and surrendered in communion to the Supreme Spirit. Ultimately, you’ll find your consciousness entirely transformed.

This book offers for the first time an accessible distillation of the true teachings of the Saints or Masters who continue to grace our planet. Whatever movement you can make into the light, the time is now ripe for you to achieve your own spiritual revolution.

Ultimately, spirituality can’t be taught, it must be caught. Spirituality is elusive, because it is beyond the mind and transcends the physical senses. But each of us is a soul with spiritual senses that are longing for tuning. And God is more willing for us to be tuned than you can possibly imagine.

This is an invitation to you to discover God’s invitation to you.
