Your Own Voice

"Doubt yourself and you doubt everything you see. Judge yourself and you see judges everywhere. But if you listen to the sound of your own voice you can rise above doubt and judgment and you can see forever."

When it comes down to it, we are all insecure human beings. We always will be to some extent. However, within us is a "still, small voice." Listen to it. I believe that is the power of prayer. God will speak if we will listen. Quiet the heart, reflect and listen to that voice which is so often drowned out by other voices. There is peace in this. There is freedom.

I used to wonder how God could possibly speak to me. I never heard a single word. Then I realized that it is something within us. It is His voice, yet it is ours because we are His. Our voice is His voice, our thoughts are His thoughts. We are connected in a way that can only be explained by the death of the soul. In order to allow two separate thoughts to become one, we must abandon our voice and our thoughts--our doubt and our judgment--completely. When this happens, the birth of something new rises. The new voice is not based on what is human and culturally explicit. It is based on an ancient wisdom hidden deep within us. We can know His voice when we listen to what we were made to hear.
