Listen to God!

Do you want to talk to God?  Then talk!  Do you want to hear God’s word?  Then LISTEN! God loves you DEARLY!  You don’t need to go to a building with a cross upon its door to listen to a man on a stage who has been appointed by another man to a title that declares him to be closer to God than you!  Is that the way to hear God’s Word?  That is man’s word.  No one is any closer to God than you!  Every being in Creator’s universe are ALL EQUAL, including you!  You have always been told that this is the only way to hear God’s word.  They told you that you were a sinner, unworthy of direct contact with God.  God is the Creator who created all things!  And God created YOU!

Does it make sense that we constantly talk AT God (ie. praying) and then NEVER listen to his response?  Does this one-way conversation make sense to you?  Do you believe that God has far more wisdom than us?  Do you believe that it is wise, then, to listen to what God has to share with us?  Otherwise, we are like young children who chatter incessantly at their parents while busy DOing what they DO without stopping long enough to listen to the response of their parents.  “Mommy, can I have this?  Daddy, can I have that?  I have a boo-boo, make it better!  Why is this so?  Why is that so?  Why?  Why?  Why?”  It is time to graduate from being young children and begin to talk WITH our parents instead of AT them.  It is time to LISTEN to God!

So listen to your heart!  Listen to the silence, in the silent moments is when you can hear your Creator whispering in your ear!  God’s word is in the breeze, it is in the trees and the chirping birds and it is in your hearts!  Sometimes the answers are in the lyrics of a song when you turn on the radio, or the words of a stranger on the elevator, or a symbol on a sign that catches your eye while driving.  When we don’t stop to listen, God tries to reach us in other ways.  We have to learn to LISTEN in all the ways that heaven reaches out to us.

Meditation to listen to God

The best way to listen is to learn some basic meditation techniques.  The main purpose of meditation is to learn to quieten the constant chatter that goes on in the human brain.  Try it! For ten seconds, try to think of nothing, absolutely nothing.  Really, go ahead!  If you could do that on your first try, CONGRATULATIONS!  Not many people can.  Practice on your own or go online and find some guided mediations.  Soon you will find some silent moments.  With practice, the silent moments get longer.  In the silent moments, heaven’s words and images will speak to you.  Does this sound like too much work?  Is hearing the word of God not worth it?  God is speaking to you.  It is time to start listening!

Praying is talking to God.  Meditating is listening to God!

    God loves simple mind, hearth and soul. His first deciples were common people like fishermen…who, of course, were not perfect but ready to listen, learn and spread the Kingdom of God. Christians dont need buildings, fake pictures, icones or gold chains and rings to mediate between God and people in need. God bless you, right now and right here!!!

  11. Best wishes with your new blog! My background is Catholic too, and I hope to hear more from you. The only thing I question is, a lot of Christians call God a “He,” when there is no gender to God because God’s not a “being” such as the God of the Bible. I think it’s time to move beyond that picture…

    ran across this tonight and thought it was a really great article about the control paradigm in religion. Have fun 🙂

    Someone said that “God is not a being.” Then, what is spirit, and what is spirituality? I know what I believe spirituality is, but if God is not a being, then maybe I’m not understanding what another means when he or she talks about spirit. I thought spirit was a being. What is spirituality?

    • Stephen, a spirit is most certainly a being! A being is any entity, physical or non-physical, that has consciousness. God is absolutely a being! In the culture of many humans, we have been programmed to ignore the fact that we spiritual beings, first and foremost. As I explain in the article, being spiritual means that one is aware that they are a spirit, that experiences in this embodiment are for our spiritual growth and as such, they spend their lives creating experiences for that purpose. Spiritual people also usually spend much time meditating or in nature, for example, as they are connecting with their higher spiritual being. I hope that helps you understand!
