If you want to know what's true for you
about something, look to how you're feeling about it.
Feelings are sometimes difficult to
discover - and often even more difficult to acknowledge. Yet hidden in
your deepest feelings is your highest truth.
The trick is to get to those feelings.
I will show you how. Again. If you wish.
I told God that I did wish, but that right now I wished even more for
a complete and full answer to my first question. Here's what God said:
I also communicate with thought.
Thought and feelings are not the same, although they can occur at the
same time. In communicating with thought, I often use images and
pictures. For this reason, thoughts are more effective than mere words
as tools of communication.
In addition to feelings and thoughts, I
also use the vehicle of experience as a grand communicator.
And finally, when feelings and thoughts
and experience all fail, I use words. Words are really the least
effective communicator. They are most open to misinterpretation, most
And why is that? It is because of what
words are. Words are merely utterances: noises that stand for
feelings, thoughts, and experience. They are symbols. Signs.
Insignias. They are not Truth. They are not the real thing.
Words may help you understand
something. Experience allows you to know. Yet there are some things
you cannot experience. So I have given you other tools of knowing. And
these are called feelings. And so too, thoughts.
Now the supreme irony here is that you
have all placed so much importance on the Word of God, and so little
on the experience.
In fact, you place so little value on
experience that when what you experience of God differs from what
you've heard of God you automatically discard the experience and own
the words, when it should be just the other way around.
Your experience and your feelings about
a thing represent what you factually and intuitively know about that
thing. Words can only seek to symbolize what you know, and can often
confuse what you know.
