Many of us are not aware of Spirit because we have been conditioned not to look for it. In our childhood, we were taught to focus on, identify, and name objects, and to look on the surface at how people appear in the world. What you are conditioned to focus on is what you see. We usually were not taught to see the light and energy around objects or to perceive the inner life of people. To see Spirit, we basically need to change our focus, as trivial as that may sound. Then when you concentrate on seeing beneath the surface at the essence, the Spirit, of an individual, it moves to the foreground, and you start to see, feel, and know this essential goodness and beauty in everyone.
