I noticed this post after following a link posted in the Daily Pick section of this website. It has captivated my attention and thought some of you who haven't read it, might find it as edifying as I have. The resulting discussion is as compelling as the original post itself.

Title: Quit pushing your belief system on me.

Ann Branson of Ohio Yearly Meeting used the expression "ear of my soul" in her journal; “I presently heard this language . . . addressed to the ear of my soul, viz: ‘Ye shall not see me henceforth until ye say blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.’”

See https://muse.jhu.edu/article/634227   Rushby, William F., Ann Branson and the Eclipse of Oracular Ministry in Nineteenth-Century Quakerism." Quaker History  Volume 105, Number 2, Fall 201644-69.

For the complete text of Branson's journal, see Digital Quaker Collection: https://esr.earlham.edu/dqc/index.html (search for Ann Branson)

Branson uses the "ear of my soul" metaphor 29 times in her journal, more than any other writer, according to the Digital Quaker Collection.

I appreciate this information William.
