This Week’s Quotation:
At their best, words track an experience and convey information that can’t be fully captured in words. My hope is that what is happening inside us all is invoked more fully for me in the sharing of this book, and for you as you read it. These words are my best attempt to represent the message I receive on the inside, sometimes in words, but most often through feeling and experience; an inner pulse and vibration that creates music in my ears and pictures in my mind. The words of this book share the voice of the creation compulsion that speaks with me. My hope is that you share that experience for yourself as you read.

The Voice of the Creator
The excerpt this week is from the “Introduction” in my book. I was doing my best to introduce the reader to how I had approached the writing of the text and how I thought they might best enjoy it. There is a creative voice that speaks with me, and I believe that is true for all people, whether they think of it that way or not.
I believe there is One Voice speaking to all people, and it speaks through us if we let it. I am not talking about “hearing voices,” as people sometimes claim to do. I am talking about receiving creative urges, insights, and messages from within.
We have to listen to the One Voice as it speaks to us internally to hear it. We have to take the creative urge within us seriously, or else we turn our back on it while we are busy with things that don’t make us happy.
The One Voice, as expressed by anyone, is unique to them. It can’t help but come out that way. That is the joy of individuality. But on the inside, it is the same voice speaking to us all. It is the voice of Creation, and it is the voice of the Creator. As a poem in the book says, it is the “Voice of Being.” To use a religious way of saying it, it is the voice of God. It is holy, and I hold it sacred.
Human opinions, desires, worries, and woes can drown out the One Voice. Sad. Today and every day, I commit myself to listen to the One Voice and give it utterance in all the ways it urges me to do so.
What does it mean to become a sun?
Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.
