I believe that anyone can know God.  Not just a select few or the “chosen,” the rich, the poor, or the learned.  Anyone.

     That being said, we are all very different.  Each of us is special and unique, and I believe that there are many ways in which a person can come to know God.  But I also believe that with these many ways there are some constants which are always present, such as love, peace, unity, appreciation, honesty, forgiveness, non-violence, and so on.

     To any honest, truth-seeking person, my message is this: You can know God.  You can know the truth.  If only you put your mind and spirit in a state that is receptive to the possibility of it, God will do the rest.  Take not only my testimony, but the testimony of the peoples of ages past.  Take the testimony of your own life, the flashes of God and spirit you may at times have felt, and open yourself up to it.  Open your spirit to God.
