Inner voice

A soft voice that give us advice

July 1st 2022
Each of us has an inner voice that continually speaks to us, but this voice is very soft, and great effort is required to be able to distinguish it amidst all kinds of noise. It is as if we were trying to pick out the melody of a flute amid the clamour of cymbals and bass drums. We must learn to listen to this very soft voice that speaks to us from within. We certainly know how to hear the thunderous voice of the stomach shouting in hunger or that of the sexual organs demanding a victim, but when a small voice says to us, ‘Be more patient. Learn to control yourself. Try harder’, we reply, ‘Oh, be quiet!’ It is easy to silence it – it is so gentle, it does not insist, and it is too bad for those of us who do not want to listen; one day we will be taught a lesson.
