The Whisper of Goodness

Like many others, like everyone actually, I hear a voice inside me.
A voice that  says don't worry.
A voice that also says that maybe someone out there is an enemy to be watched.
Sometimes this causes me worry. I start thinking. Planning for eventualities.
And then realise that this was just a demon in my head.

There are definitely both a Demon voice and a Good Voice playing a Chinese whisper inside us.
Like my father in law says, The Mahabharata is nothing but a war inside each of us.
Between the good and the not so good.
Between the right and not so right.

The challenge is, how do we know whether the voice we hear is that of our own fears, the demons, or the voice that comes from the soul and we should listen to.

Both sound confident.
And similar.

But from my experience, the demons in our mind makes us comfortable.
They do not challenge my thinking. Rather, they play on my thoughts.

The Good Voice however, challenges me.
Chides me at times.
Taunts me to get out of my blanket of fear and insecurities.

So unlike what we would like to believe, The Good Voice is quite a task master.
Strict. Firm.No nonsense.
And is loving only once we are calm and confident , and have overcome our fears.

The more we train ourselves to listen to this, the louder and stronger this resonates inside us.
Maybe one day, it will resonate so strong that the demons will be silenced.
