What is the evolution of God? It sounds like a strange concept because God is eternal. God is changeless. He is the essence of pure being, the one True Reality. So how can there be an evolution of God?
When we experience God in the world, in many ways it is an evolutionary experience. We are constantly deepening our experience of God, our experience of Oneness, our experience of Love, understanding, and compassion. These qualities are important because they are the qualities of God. These are also the qualities that the Holy Spirit, the Voice for God, teaches us about.
God can only speak to us “where we are,” what we’re capable of learning right here, right now. God could give the same Truth to each and every one of us, and yet we are each going to take in exactly what we’re capable of learning right now that makes sense to us, that feels real, accurate, and valid.
This is an important concept to understand in hearing God’s Voice in your life because it will help you to stop comparing WHAT you hear and HOW you hear to anyone else, because we each need to hear God and the messages of Truth that He has for us right where we are in order to awaken to His Love, Compassion, and Understanding.
If twenty people were to ask God the same exact question, they would all hear something different. Each person has different life experience, history, belief systems, culture, background, and language. Our minds are very unique, and when God speaks to us, He speaks to us through our particular mind, life experience, history, belief system, and vocabulary.
If you were a five-year old child and you asked God a question, you would hear something completely different than if you were a scientist, a banker, a soccer mom, or priest. Because we’re unique from one another in so many ways, God is going to speak to each of us exactly “where we are.” What is it that we personally need to hear right now in order to deepen our experience of God, Love, and Peace? God will say something different to each of us.
That’s the power of hearing God’s Voice in your life. You are not taking a concept of Love, Compassion, or Faith that you read about in a book or that someone else tells you about and then somehow figuring out how to apply those qualities in your life. God will speak to you exactly where you are on a particular topic, right here, right now. That is powerful! That helps each of us to deepen our understanding of God in our own ways and at our own time. It’s not figuring out how to apply an abstract concept or teaching to your life. God’s Love and Truth get made REAL right here and now by hearing God’s Voice in our life.
When we understand that there is no generic form that God’s Voice expresses in, we can allow everybody to hear whatever they hear, even if it seems contradictory to what we hear. That is what THAT PERSON needs to hear to awaken to God’s Love. YOU need to hear something different, and I need to hear something different. Sure there’s going to be some commonality, and we may even hear exactly the same thing, but the point is, we each hear what we need to hear in this moment. When we can give this understanding to our self and have that be okay, we are able to extend that acceptance and understanding to others and allow what they hear to be ok.
When you give this understanding to yourself, you’ll stop comparing what you hear with what another person hears and you will be able to recognize God speaking to people in all kinds of ways, all over the world, non-stop. It won’t matter what it sounds like. You’ll be able to see the Truth in it, and understand that each person gets what they need for their awakening and growth. This is what we call, “The evolution of God,” hearing as much Truth and Love from God as we are possibly able to receive in this moment, in this form, on this topic, and whatever that may be is perfect.
We could ask God the same question tomorrow and get a different answer, or the same answer. We might ask the same question next year or ten years from now and get the same answer or a different answer. There are no rules. This moment is this moment. That’s it. We will hear whatever we need to hear from God, in whatever form we need to hear it in, to grow closer to Him right now.
Over the next few days, as you practice this concept, ask the Holy Spirit, God’s Voice within you, for guidance and allow yourself to receive whatever you receive. Remember, it doesn’t need to sound how you think it should. If you are a Catholic priest, you will hear what you need to hear. If you are a parent, you will hear what you need to hear. If you are a teenager, you will hear what you need to hear. That’s how hearing God’s Voice works! Hear however you do, and know that whatever you hear is perfect for you. Over the next few days, begin to recognize HOW other people hear and WHAT other people hear is perfect for them. This understanding will truly change the way you experience God’s Voice in your life and in the world.
Blessings to you.
