We may call it an intuition or a gut feeling or the sixth sense or a basic instinct. But it is the most silent of voices we have ever heard. It is a monologue between the speaker and the listener in which both roles are played by the same per-son.
Inner voice is the whisper of the soul. It is like a gentle tap on our shoulders to awaken us to righteousness in life. It is an eye opener that leads us on the path of truth with clarity and conviction. It is like a lighthouse that enlightens the paths before us and guides us to the most suitable one, when we are at crossroads in our lives.
It is the voice of the Divine. The inner voice expresses the will of God. Our inner voice is always suggestive, never domineering nor impos-ing. It is free from all biases, prejudices and ego that plague our thinking.
It is our desires that muffle the inner voice. Our egos force us to think otherwise, neglecting and overlooking the merit of our inner voice. Meditation is the only way to harness our desires and let the inner voice be audible amidst all the mental chatter.
Our inner voice has an answer for every query of our mind, every difficulty we face in life. We only need to attune to it. By matching the fre-quency of our thinking with that of our inner voice, we can achieve real bliss. For then we are guided by Him. And He can never go wrong. For He always wishes good for us. It is we who mess
up our lives by ignoring our inner voice and imposing our will.
When we follow our inner voice, we automati-cally accept the outcomes since it is a path of least resistance. We are so much at peace with ourselves since we are willing to accept gra-ciously what we deserve and not be tormented by desired results and expectations.
Inner voice is our best pal, since it is very objective in its opinion and in giving guidance in our life. It serves as a mirror for us. When we rely on our inner voice, it is indirectly surrendering before Him, for our life is then aligned to His will. And the experiences encountered appear to be miracles and coincidences to us. But it is, in fact, Divine intervention.
