The Voice of the Soul
by brian j plachta on December 11th, 2016

​Inner whispers
Gentle nudges
A silent voice within.
Words and images
Flowing energy
Pulsing in our hearts with life and love.
Can you hear it?
Have you felt it?
There on the inside?
That tiny voice that has no voice
A loving murmur
Deep within the heart.
It’s the voice of the Soul.
An echo that guides
A resonance that encourages
A silent sound that rouses tired lives.
It’s embedded within us
Part of our DNA
The source-code that knows who we already are.
It’s the inner map that directs us home
The life-source that remembers
We are one with the Creator.
Each Soul’s voice has a unique tone
A texture on the inside of our human skin.
Within our mortal lungs
The Soul’s breath billows pure spirit
Cascading gentle flow.
Can you hear it?
Do you feel it?
It ‘s real—
As real as life
As true as love.
You cannot touch it or see it
Yet it’s there
Reminding our hearts to laugh, wonder, and play.
It’s the voice of love
The voice of wisdom
Its quiet easiness may be drowned by louder voices and distractions:
Our grumbling inner critic
The unholy one
The sea of endless outer noises that blast their clacking clamor from TV, radio, and People magazines.
The voice of the Soul asks only for quiet
So we can hear it.
It asks merely for solitude
So it may nurture us.
And when we identify its familiar voice
It whispers
Sweet every-things
To our listening hearts.
