2. What is the nature of this voice? and
3. What is it trying to tell us?
We’ve all had the experience at some point in our life when it felt as though someone was whispering inside our head trying to get our attention. I have come to believe that this whisperer is our spiritual nature trying to penetrate our ego dominated consciousness with a message of hope and deliverance from the unsatisfying life-situation we have been experiencing up to now. If you feel that your life has purpose, value, and meaning then you have already heard and responded to this quiet inner voice.
We have two levels of consciousness within us. One is our ego consciousness that absorbs and interprets the data it receives from our five senses and tries to make sense of the world we occupy. The other level of consciousness is our unconditionally loving spiritual nature that continuously reflects cosmic consciousness and provides us with a direct line of communication with the source of our existence and the existence of everything else in the physical universe. This cosmic connection enables us to transcend the limitations of our human condition so we can become conscious partners with unconditional love.
The quiet voice we hear within us is inviting us to throw off the limitations of our ego-based view of ourselves and the world and consciously align our ego consciousness with our spiritual nature. To the extent we cooperate in this partnership our life experience begins to expand beyond the limitations of our current conditions and we start to see and experience the world through the lens of unconditional love. We start to notice things that we were previously blind to like our connection with our own loving potential, the compassion we are capable of feeling for all living beings trying to the best of their ability to experience love, security, acceptance, and, worth; and our interconnected relationship with this extraordinary physical universe that supports our life.
These life-expanding and life-enhancing experiences are only the beginning of the positive changes that occur when we listen deeply to the Whisperer within and make a conscious decision to take our ego consciousness out of the driver’s seat and let our unconditionally loving spiritual nature become the guiding force in our life.
