5. Many of the pieces have more than one page (Mother, Undaunted  Love etc..) so be sure (after you start reading a piece) to advance until you come to the next title heading by hitting your space bar (or mouse  button), this will ensure you enjoy the whole piece.

6. Once you arrive at a piece if it appears to extend beyond the bottom of  the page click, hold, and move your mouse upward to move the whole page up so that you can view the bottom of the page, or just hit your  space bar.  

7. The Enhanced eBook version of  Messages "Reflections of Being" also  has sound added to many of the pieces. The recordings are from the CD    Messages "I Dreamed Tomorrow" also by Maurice Skillern. The pieces  with sound will have a picture of a microphone on the upper left side of the page. Click on the picture (microphone) to enjoy hearing the author, Maurice Skillern, reading the selected piece. After listening to a piece advance to the next page using the arrow key (or mouse). If you press the space bar here it will start the piece (being read) over again. To stop a piece that is being read just hit the  Esc key on your keyboard.  

8. When you are done reading simply hit escape (Esc) key on your keyboard to   lose the eBook. This action will take you to the general adobe screen. On  this screen you  can either continue on to close the eBook; enlarge the text of  the eBook or just continue reading.
