Hearing God’s Voice
“All miracles mean life, and God is the Giver of life. HIs Voice will direct you very specifically. You will be told all you need to know.” T-1.1.4:1-3
This miracle principle can be both comforting and upsetting. People often complain that they don’t hear God’s Voice.
If you don’t hear God’s Voice there can be two primary reasons.
First, you may not be listening on the right channel. Are you listening on the channel of Love or the channel of fear? We hear only on the channel of Love. If you are asking our of fear or are demanding a particular answer you probably won’t be able to hear God’s Voice because fear and demandingness are things of the ego which God knows nothing of.
Second, you may be asking the wrong question. If you are asking about things of the ego, God knows nothing of these because they are your illusions and projections. God gives us free will. He does not demand nor coerce us into the path of Love. If we’d rather be the victim and act out of fear and attack, we are able to do that but this is nothing God knows about. This is strictly our ego tricking us into thinking that things of the ego will bring us salvation which, of course, they won’t and can’t.
The best request we can make of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, our Higher Power, the muse, is to ask that the things of the ego which are blocking our awareness of Love’s presence be removed. It is in this purification of the mind that we find Love and peace.
The Course tells us that the path to salvation is forgiveness. Forgiveness is the willingness to give up making other people and situations responsible for our unhappiness. It is in this giving up that we remove the blocks of the ego from our awareness of Love’s presence in our life.
Today, when you feel angry, frustrated, depressed, anxious, bored, use this awareness as a forgiveness opportunity and ask God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Muse, you Higher Power to help you remove this block to your awareness of Love’s presence and you will probably hear God’s voice very clearly.
