“Will Murtha: What you are saying is that we should always go inside of ourselves first, before we listen to everything that is external to us.
Voice of Higher Presence: Good, you are getting close to the core truth. By all means, observe another’s truth. Give respect, listen and filter through what most resonates with you. This is how you will arrive at your own centered place. But do not make the mistake of swallowing whole a concept that another is forcing down your throat. Use discernment, always, and then you will arrive at your truth. Remember, just because another person deeply inspires and motivates you, it is not a signal to give away your own power. To do so is foolish, not to mention self-deluded.
Will Murtha: This is what fundamentalists do, isn’t it? They completely surrender their own beliefs to something or someone they view as a higher authority.
Voice of Higher Presence: There is no higher authority. If you refer to “authority” as some untouchable, commanding and dominant force, then your whole understanding of the unseen and invisible is misconstrued. However, if you see this “higher force” as an energy extension of your own self, then you are correct. You are closer to the divine truth. The point I want to make is this: Never, ever give up your own power and integrity. For to do so will forever imprison your soul behind the gates of despair. Instead, always take care to listen to the higher truth resonating within you because it will always lead you back home.”
