Although the innate urge to know God Is present in everyone,
few people know how to actually experience the reality of God.
Every soul, as an individualized unit of pure consciousness, is
living in God now. This truth (fact) only has to be acknowledged
When we know God as God is, our awareness is no longer

confusion and subconscious influences); it is illumined
Satisfying Our Innate Desire
Roy Eugene Davis has taught these spiritual
growth methods for more than 50 years—in the
U.S., Canada, Japan, Europe, Brazil, West Africa,
and India. Some of his books are published in
eleven languages and ten countries. Mr. Davis
is a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda.
Every man, woman, and child should be informed that an
enlivening Power is nourishing our universe and they can
learn to cooperate with it. When they do, their lives will
be enhanced, their worthy endeavors will be successful,
and they will experience rapid, progressive spiritual

completely satisfy the desire of their heart.

northern Ohio, I began to earnestly inquire about the
reality of God. Although I had always been aware of a

reader who aspires to know God.
