"This spiritual force is everywhere and in every thing and every one."

  Wayne Dyer
There is a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem
, Part 3

Recognizing, like dreaming, is something we access by making an inner and outer commitment to our ability to recognize.

For example, in this first step when you are faced with a problem, I suggest you create a personal affirmation such as: "I may not know exactly how to access the spiritual solution here, but I fully recognize that a spiritual solution exists." By recognition of its existence, we invite the power to be known by us.

As physical beings we can make a flower grow in the sense of the response to the question in the opening sentence of this book. But if we are thoughtful we realize that we cannot even begin to unravel the mystery of the invisible force that initiates life. Yet it is in this omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent spiritual world that we find the solutions to all our problems.

This spiritual force is everywhere and in every thing and every one. When we incorporate the first step, recognition, we begin the process of accessing this all-knowing power.

The Second of Three Steps for Accessing Spiritual Direction

Realization: We discover that knowledge achieved by realization is of a much higher order than intellectual reasoning.

This is not an exercise in intellectual reasoning. In this step we go beyond recognition of a spiritual presence into the phase of realization where nothing but our own personal experience is trusted.

We become an explorer in virgin territory where no one but ourselves can be. Here, only you can validate your experience.

Our desire to realize the presence is an integral part of the unexplainable dynamic that creates life. When we actively meditate on a chosen spiritual ideal or even a given personality we are expressing our desire by inviting the presence to be accessible.
