A few weeks ago, I asked, "How does the Holy Spirit speak to you?" "When/how do you hear Him?" The answers that came back were remarkably similiar to one another and to my own: Sometimes I am pulled from my own thoughts into reflection; sometimes, it sounds like the voice of my mother/ my father; sometimes it is the halyards from the boats in the harbor; sometimes it is the voice of others.
Today, I am asking a further question: How do you know when it is the Spirit and not your own voice speaking to you? And I am torn between wanting to reflect on the answer myself and wanting to allow each person who reads this the space for his/her own reflections.
So I will wait until tomorrow to post my own answers to this question.
