The Voice for God or the voice for the ego: to which will we listen?

If you cannot hear the Voice for God, it is because you do not choose to listen. That you do listen to the voice of your ego is demonstrated by your attitudes, your feelings and your behavior. Yet this is what you want. This is what you are fighting to keep, and what you are vigilant to save. Your mind is filled with schemes to save the face of your ego, and you do not seek the face of Christ. The glass in which the ego seeks to see its face is dark indeed. How can it maintain the trick of its existence except with mirrors? But where you look to find yourself is up to you. T-4.IV.1: 1 - 8

Once again when we read the day’s ACIM verse, it brings a smile and knowing laugh. Yes, we can listen to the Voice for God or to the voice of our ego. ACIM reminds us that the voice we listen to is up to us. Which voice do we value more, do we put our stock in, do we ask to lead us to peace and happiness?

Today, we are reminded of the Unitarian Universalists' seven principles, the fourth of which is the affirmation and promotion of the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. The principle reminds us that we can listen to the Voice For God or the voice of the ego. The choice is ours.
