Lesson 49 – Hearing voices

‘God’s voice speaks to me all through the day.’

It is quite possible to listen to God’s Voice all through the day without interrupting your regular activities in any way. The part of your mind in which truth abides is in constant communication with God, whether you are aware of it or not. It is the other part of your mind that functions in the world and obeys the world’s laws. It is this part that is constantly distracted, disorganised and highly uncertain. The part that is listening to the Voice of God is calm, always at rest, and wholly certain.
We will need at least four 5-minute practice sessions today, and more if possible. We will try actually to hear God’s voice reminding you of Him and of your Self. Listen in deep silence, be very still and open your mind. Go past the raucous shrieks and and sick imaginings that cover your real thoughts and obscure your external links with God. Sink deep into the peace that waits for you beyond the frantic, riotous thoughts and sights and sounds of this insane world. You do not live there .
Repeat today’s idea frequently, with eyes closed when you can, realising that you are inviting God’s Voice to speak to you.
I was exhausted after all day at the theatre yesterday, but, as my body was crying out for exercise I went to the gym before going to the city centre to meet a client for a coaching session. Today’s lesson wasn’t particularly challenging for me, as I feel I already engage in practices that have been opening up the channel to hearing God’s voice more clearly, i.e. meditation, deep breathing, prayer, and recently I’ve given up alcohol. I am working on being as clear a channel as possible. Today’s lesson was a great opportunity to remain focused on listening. Coaching is such a wonderful occupation, because it forces you to listen to your clients, and, as they are also expressions of God, creates the opportunity to hear the voice of God directly.
While I waited for our meeting I did some people watching in the Bull Ring, particularly the children on the trampoline. Had planned to go to the storytelling cafe at the Ikon Gallery but was too tired. Listening to the body.
Novel a little slow today, but moving.
