answers is a matter of practice and refinement. If you expect for God to answer yes, and
He says no, you may assume that you have heard wrongly and will ask again and try to
rephrase questions until you get what you want to hear. Trust me; you will use all sorts
of manipulations to hear what you want to hear. You don’t really want to hear God’s
answer; you want to hear God confirm your expectations. Then, once you have managed
to manipulate the answers to your expectations, you will wait for things to go your way.
When they do not, you will promptly accuse God of misleading or lying to you. You will
forget that you changed the answer to your own and will seek to find fault with the voice
of God. This is merely a note of warning, as all have fallen into this trap. It’s the
downside of the ego, for you have again fallen under its spell. You have again tried to
control life, and you have surely failed. Only those who can completely quiet the ego can
hear always the answers of God. When there are no expectations, only truth is heard.
