God's Voice

I wrote this in my journal in 1995. I heard this from the woman who was my spiritual director at the time. She said: “God’s voice is very subtle. Each day in prayer look for the one thing in the day before that struck you as an impulse, a thought, an image or an idea. Train yourself to see and hear and feel the subtle.”

To do this, she said, you have to get quiet. Get a more quiet life.

This is dangerous. Hearing voices or wanting to hear voices is definitely on the "edge".

Thank you for the reminder to make the space for quiet in this busy time. Listening to the voice of calm reflection is way less dangerous than listening to my own mind on steroids!
Sending love.
