"For behold, the mystery of godliness, how great is it!" —D&C 19:10

"So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast a seed into the ground; And should sleep . . . and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how." —Mark 4:26-27

We believe many things but don't always know how to implement them. We believe that human beings can grow into Gods. We accept the importance of coming to Christ and also of awakening our divine attributes and powers—but how to do that seems obscure. Likely a list of spiritual to-do's ceases to serve. So we may find ourselves seeking a more fulfilling path—but where to set our foot?

In recent years, studies in adult developmental psychology have cast unexpected light on the path to Godhood. They illustrate that human beings already possess the potent seeds for unfolding into more highly developed beings. We learn that spiritual practices can shape the mind into and instrument for facilitating spiritual growth and experience, that is, for continuing from "grace to grace." Along the way, venturing into the unknown, we shed false concepts about ourselves, about our reality, and about God Himself.

The purpose of this book is to explore the path of spiritual development.
