"The spirit world knows no time or place, nor does the spirit world communicate to us in language. It speaks to us through dreams, visions, signs, symbols, and feelings. What you have done, through you cannot explain how, is to touch the world of spirit. Give up your need for thinking with your physical mind and you will understand the purity of the spirit mind, which needs no words or descriptions. What is new now to you is to understand through your spiritual mind. Remenber, man is a duality, at once living in flesh and in spirit. So too is everything else found in this duality. Two bodies, two minds, all in the same person. Whether you understand or not, you have been in contact with these spiritual worlds for a long time, but you do not understand their language. Those spiritual realities, those worlds outside the flesh have been trying to speak to you for a long time, you know their voices but you do not know when and how they speak."
