We then wander aimlessly like orphans, without a roadmap, unplugged from our GPS. This book maps a route to connect with our ever-present navigational system.
That route takes us through the stages of spiritual awakening. Since all living beings evolve through phases of development, it stands to reason that spiritual development operates under similar principles. Leonard explains that we each go through stages or phases of life.

Though we are always connected to an infinite Source, the awakening process is about shifting from one phase to the next. Some of us may be unconscious infants, oblivious to Spirit, while other are maturing into spiritual adults who feel more connected to a Diving Presence. However, when my buddy fell fast asleep on his bed, he began inhaling as if his nose was snorting jello. To lull myself to sleep, I tried imagining a gentle brook in a peaceful pasture but my visualization kept morphing into the roar of Niagara Falls.

I pondered the notion of six tortuous sleepless nights as I listened to a nasal rumba. Or tie string around his toe and yank it every time his nasal cavity rumbled. I shivered in my pajamas and sweatshirt and wrote about the incident, imagining the glass door quivering with every snore.
I wanted to understand this unusual wake-up call. Asking for help places the key of intention into the door of the Divine.
Listening requires a quiet mind. In the still of the night the answer arrived that I was doing it — writing in my journal. So I wrote with a stream of consciousness and reflected about being awake. I completed my journal entry with the following words:. To know that we are in a dream when we are not conscious of the Divine in all of us and that we are connected to one another.
Once we ask and listen, we are ready to receive.

After I had finished writing, the snoring ceased! The silence was unbelievable. I stayed awake awestruck by the miracle. In the morning I shared my experience with my roommate who was deeply apologetic. I told him that Spirit will help us resolve the problem — if only we ask, listen and receive. My buddy used a pillow to elevate his head and opened the patio door for fresh air. I obtained ear plugs from the front desk and received more miracles — no snoring during the rest of the conference.
