Thoughts on Week 8 – Text, Chapter 5, II. The Voice for God

Chapter 5, II. The Voice for God

With some inner work that I have been doing of late, I have had to make the decision on which call (ego or Holy Spirit) is worth more to me. At times it seemed that I was in the land of confusion. Trusting neither voice in that vast wasteland seemed to hold me there. The voices of the past, the ego, had started to resound loudly in my mind reminding me of the creed of who they believed that I was.

Intellectually at this dark moment, I still knew what the Holy Spirit believed about me yet it seemed that when I did trust His Guidance that something else seemed to happen that seemed to bring a negative outcome. Ah, more ego voices….

I had to say “enough” and banish the voices of the ego to the wasteland of confusion. The ego voice will never indicate clarity. Its aim is to confuse the Dickens out of me. That is just a trap but I don’t have to fall into it.

There is a Voice for Peace, one that only speaks rightly of me and of God. This Voice comforts all my woes and actually shows me that there really are no woes to begin with. He assists me in forgetting the tragedies that I have made and to only remember the sing song, joyous laughter of Heaven. His Voice calls gently to me to awaken and join with the gladness. What have I to fear when I am joined with the Holy One receiving the Message of Light.

Writing about this and working through all the blockages with His Help is my task. I am to give every dark, hidden thought to Him for a mind-washing. Ah…how fresh and clean it all is as I choose Him above all else!


Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
