Do You Ever Hear Voices?

Interesting and worth a moment or so of contemplation

Do You Ever Hear Voices?:

On June 13, 2007, on The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert interviewed the author of Muses, Madmen and Prophets, Daniel B. Smith who spoke about how hearing voices is not always psychotic and could actually be a good thing.

I began to 'hear voices' shortly after I began the practice of lectio-divinia/holy reading, in the year 2000, which was two years after beginning the practice of Centering Prayer as outlined by Father Michael Keating.

The 'voices' speak to me in scripture verses, except for 'DO SOMETHING!' which has been the most persistent and loudest, and began the second I looked into the eyes of George, a little boy of Bethlehem.
