Have you ever wondered about the small voice that we hear from inside us? The small voice that we call as conscience! We do not need others to judge us, to tell us if we are right or wrong because our conscience tells us all the time. Our conscience is always there to offer advice, to check us if we are wrong and to motivate us on the right path. But we don’t always listen to our conscience.
What exactly is this conscience? Is it the mind or intelligence or ego? Or is it entirely something else? Lord Krishna says to Arjuna in the Bhagvad Gita that the Supreme Personality of Godhead resides in the heart of every living being as the Supersoul. So may be this conscience of ours is the voice of God who is residing inside every living being! God who is our eternal friend talks to us as our conscience. He is always there to guide us on the right path.
Along with the voice of our conscience, there are many other small voices which raise their head time to time. These are the voices of lust, anger, greed, pride, ego and illusion. So we have to be very aware and ignore all the other voices and listen only to the voice of our conscience which is actually the voice of wisdom from God.
So next time you hear that small voice inside you, make sure you listen to it. Keep following the spiritual path and do your spiritual practices regularly. Fine tune yourself by chanting the holy names and by surrendering to the divine so that you listen only to the guiding voice in your heart and ignore all the unnecessary voices vying for your attention. As long as God is there to guide you, you can never go wrong.
