Ego Self or True Self?
When I am listening within, is it my true self talking or is it my ego?
This is a very good question and
shows that there is a certain level of sincerity and perhaps prayer for
purity going on inside of you. To find the answer to your question you
best follow the feeling inside that comes with this question. It will
lead you to the answer without fail.
And if you like, here follows a direction you could follow to help you on your journey.
- Write down the information you receive from your meditation.
you question whether it is from your mind, or God, or higher
intelligence, you can have three further meditations about it. Each time

attention to the results. You can steadily come to learn the difference
between your mind and higher intelligence – which is from God – by
becoming aware of the results from your actions; are they helping you?
That is a part of self-realization.

because either way, there’s always helpful information that is just out of our
reach, unless we slow down enough to hear it.
- This inner hearing is
like a whisper. To hear
the Whisper, you need to be calm, you need to be quiet, and you need to be

- Whether you call it
