Does God speak to us? Yes, since God is within us, he speaks to us. His voice is very soft, and we must learn to distinguish it amid all the other voices asking to be heard inside our body, our heart and our intellect. It can be compared to the melody of a flute in the midst of the clamour of cymbals and bass drums.
It is easy to hear and follow the thunderous voice of the stomach shouting in hunger or that of our sexual organs demanding a victim. But when a small voice says to you, ‘Calm down, learn to master yourself, make an effort’ more often than not, you ignore it, or even try to suppress it. Patiently, with love, the voice repeats its advice, but if you are determined to silence it, it no longer insists. The voice of God is very powerful, but it is weak within us if we do not want to listen.
