From Google Reads "There exists within each one of us unseen forces that are made up of feelings, emotions, thoughts, beliefs, memories, and fears that influence our visible world, moment by moment. Yet at the center of these are the positive forces of love, joy, peace, harmony, beauty, and wisdom that are unchanging in their nature. In Our InVisible World, authors Bill Anderson and Annie P. Clark share a collection of inner revelations of the awesome love of God as well as the power always available to us. They show us how to tap into this love and power and be open and receptive to knowing the truth, with one avenue being through periods of silence, and another avenue being through prayer. With both approaches being under girded in faith, they can each help us cultivate and develop certain mental attitudes and physical practices that will support us in unleashing our natural goodness. This world of unseen forces can become increasingly visible for you when you seek the presence of God and ask for a revelation of its truth, its beauty, and its love. With this you can experience a new appreciation for all of life, discovering a new and joyous outlook because there is much more to life than what we can see with our eyes or hear with our ears."
