He said that, then, my hearing would return.

 I have spent the last fifteen or so years learning to listen to Spirit, but never with a more concentrated effort than over the last few months. What I have heard is the beautiful truth about myself – about everyone – that we are God’s thought of love in form; that we are whole and innocent; that when we follow Spirit’s guidance instead of making our own plans, we are then working with the creative power that can move mountains; that we can live in joy once we are willing to put God first.

 My new hearing aids are fantastic. When I put them in the first time, I wept with joy at all I could hear. But, I know the aids are only a physical symbol of how I am hearing Spirit more clearly. The new technology is amazing, but the real miracle is that I have finally heard.
