Discover the Gift explores the basic but vital reality that there are Gifts in each person and in all circumstances that are simply awaiting your discovery. The degree to which you nurture, educate, and allow the miracle of your Gift to live is in direct proportion to the degree to which you will experience joy, power, fulfilment, freedom, and unconditional love. Both the book and the film in the Discover the Gift project are artistic, outward expressions of an inner space of connectedness, fulfilment, and bliss. The message of all the spiritual leaders and transformational teachers who are participating in this project (including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Mark Victor Hansen, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Barbara De Angelis, Lucia De Garcia, Jack Canfield, Marianne Williamson, Sonia Powers, and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar) is one of discovering and nurturing the Gift that exists inherently in all people and which each person can uniquely share with the world. This complete life-plan gives people the means to find happiness and peace by living the life they were meant to live. Demian Lichtenstein and Shajen Joy Aziz's personal journeys of awareness and spiritual growth have fuelled their desire to reach out and share what they have learned in the hope that it can provide an opening for others to heal and connect to the fullness of their life. They do not approach this pretending to be spiritual masters. But they do have the benefit of their experience-a profound experience with the Gift that enables them to help others along the same path. Shajen and Demian share how all universal spiritual laws and principles work together with integrity to form a unified field of consciousness that can change individual lives-and can in turn transform our entire world.
