    Have/has

    Here I am tried to explain my problem by the following sentence:

    "Only some undertake the initiatory journey that will lead them to the center,where they have access to the inner reality of the divine message and,beyond, of all manifested things."

    We know that after have/has,past participle of verb is used. But why in "where they have access to the inner reality ......."past participle is not used?

    Re: Have/has

    "To have" is also a verb with its own meaning.

    It is not used only to form other tenses.

    I have a pen.
    I have a cold.
    I have a way to achieve inner peace.
    I have access (a noun) to whatever this piece is describing.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I know that after have/has, nouns can also be used besides past participles.

    I'd guess that in at least half of the posts we get here, a sentence starting with "We know that ..." relates something false.
