God’s Voice speaks to me all through the day

From the ACIM workbook:

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, disorganized and highly uncertain.

The part that is listening to the Voice for God is calm, always at rest and wholly certain. [] Try to hear God’s Voice call to you lovingly, reminding you that your Creator has not forgotten His Son.

We will need at least four five-minute practice periods today, and more if possible. We will try actually to hear God’s Voice reminding you of Him and of your Self. We will approach this happiest and holiest of thoughts with confidence, knowing that in doing so we are joining our will with the Will of God. He wants you to hear His Voice. He gave It to you to be heard.

Listen in deep silence. Be very still and open your mind. [] We are trying to reach God.

Do not forget to repeat today’s idea very frequently.

I need this today. The day has not gone too well so far. I’m about to do the first long practice:

  • My mind is too occupied with the illusions and hustle and bustle of negative thoughts. I know deep under the stormy surface lies peace and God’s voice but just now I cannot dive beyond my illusory thoughts to my real loving thoughts. At this moment I cannot hear God’s voice.
  • Second attempt a little later. This time I’m going to use self-hypnosis first to calm my mind.
    I managed to calm my mind a little and then I heard this voice (my own voice – but then???) saying:

    • “You are loved no matter what.”
    • “You are loved even when your mind is full of chaos, negativity, doubt, and fear.”
    • “You are loved even if you were Hitler, Pol Pot, xxx or yyy.”
      I’m doing my best not to make this political – but xxx and yyy were names of politicians I believe are highly sinful – understand that by sin I only mean missing the mark or mistaken. The voice referred to people I believe are mistaken to let me know the score and that does not mean that God agrees with my opinions but that the voice was telling me about God’s love in terms that i could understand,
      Knowing that it was alright for me to be dejected, frightened, and have lots of fear thoughts calmed me down.
      I still have those thoughts. I still feel lost. To a certain extent I wish I were dead. Happens to me at times when I think about my lack of employment and that I don’t know what to do. But I do feel calmer more at peace knowing that it’s alright to have any thoughts. God loves me/you/us no matter how much we believe the illusions. No matter how much we fear.
      Our terrestrial parents (if they are good) would not reject little children  for seeing monsters under the bed and being afraid of the dark. So why would our heavenly parent reject us for our fears and illusions.
  • I’m still quite disturbed. I read the following from the ACIM text:
    This is the only thing that you need do for vision, happiness, release from pain and the complete escape from sin, all to be given you.  Say only this, but mean it with no reservations, for here the power of salvation lies:

    1. I am responsible for what I see.
    2. I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the goal I would achieve.
    3. And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for, and receive as I have asked.

    Deceive yourself no longer that you are helpless in the face of what is done to you.  Acknowledge but that you have been mistaken, and all effects of your mistakes will disappear.
    *** my comments:
    The above makes sense but I don’t feel it today. Now the ACIM makes the dejection, depression, grief and sadness I feel much less but I cannot completely get over it just now.
    However, knowing with the head is totally different from knowing from the heart.

  • I just had my hair cut and I’ll go to do a meditation, I did an hour long Buddhist meditation (it was seven different meditations ending with forgiveness and loving kindness compassion meditation). To an extent this neutral meditation is what I need today.
    I keep saying that God’s voice speaks to me all through this day but not much happens…
  • Long walk and no voice – actually I ended up talking to a friend who was saying the world would be better off with human beings disappearing from the surface of the Earth.
    I couldn’t really argue with that too much.
  • After I wrote the above I did a deep-deep self hypnosis and then went to a Christmas party and now am back. No voice of God the way the ACIM writes about in this day’s exercise.
    But I was thinking:
    In reality God talk to me all the time, through every breath I take, through every beat of my heart, through everything I see, through the beauty of the world, and through the ugliness, through my fears, my guilt, my lack of forgiveness, my pettiness, my selfishness, and my generosity, when I’m kind and compassionate…
    Through all that is. All that is, is the voice of God.
    In the beginning was the word of God – the sound Aum (Om) – the singing of God from which single song came the Universe (uni-verse = one song)…
    Aum Mani Padme Hum…
    Tat tuam asi…

Love, peace and happiness.
