Is that an alarming thought? A challenging thought? Does it seem *wrong*...?
Why? Why do we have the belief (or assumption) that God stopped talking long ago ... and that God only talks through some...? Why not you? Why not me?
It's my belief that God never stopped communicating directly with human beings ... that this has been going on from the beginning of time, and is still happening today.
Here's how it's put in "The New Revelations":
"It is my function to glorify you, and so, to glorify Me. For only in the glory of you will the glory of Me be found. Only through the wonder of you will the wonder of Me be made known. Only through Life Itself, expressed in its next grandest way, can Life Itself be experienced in such a way."
Of course, none of us is the *only* one able to do this ... each of us is special ... but no more special than anyone else is (though we can know the delight of being drawn to ones who are experienced as uniquely special). None of us thus has to feel burdened, or overly responsible to bring the messages to the waiting world ... everyone everywhere is capable of bringing the message, in whatever unique way it needs to be transmitted.
It should go without saying, but must be said, that we need not listen to any human who declares themself to be more special than anyone else.
If a self-proclaimed "holy person" puts themself into the focus ... run! We are all made in the image of God, therefore all holy, so you can instead listen to those who encourage you to follow the God who is within you ...!
This quote (by Neale Donald Walsch) really speaks to me:
"Never confuse expression with experience.
Outer expression can lead to inner experience, but it can never substitute for it. Yet when inner experience leads to outer expression, the circle is complete ... and this is the purpose of Life, and the function of the World, and of the entire Universe as well."
A true teacher is not the one with the most knowledge, but one who causes the most others to have knowledge.
All shall know God not as the unattainable, but as the unavoidable.
(I just *LOVE* that..!)
