The voice within

Each human being is created with a clear line of creativity backed by a specified set of supporting positive values gene-coded within. In the interest of evolution, nature wants you to follow this in action and stick to your very personal, individual value system. Never, ever go against nature, against your own gene-codes and you will evolve in joy and the profession you will select; guided from within, this will not only bring you success but a deep degree of satisfaction.

Guru Nanak said the same thing, in terms of religion, that so many people read or recite every morning: Hukam razai chalna, Nanak likhiya naal (Follow the line of action coded (by God) within you). Psychologists call it aptitude; neuro-scientists refer to it as the indelible brain guide map. Your line of creativity is certainly individual. If it were not so, you would be following the same profession in life as your siblings because you have been brought up by the same parents, in the same home in the same city and mostly you go to the same school. Then why are you so different from each other?

The answer is that this difference is due to the line of creativity backed by a specified set of values gifted by God. The pulls and pressures of the world can deflect you from these values but you will be successful only when you follow the tiny voice within.

Your tiny voice within, in sync with God’s designs, nature and the compassionate universe (Eknath Eswaran) speaks to you every early morning, in the amritvela; reminding you of the line of creativity you have been created to follow, the set of supporting human values you have been gifted with. Listen to this tiny voice in the interest of your own vigorous, joyful evolution. Remember what Swami Vivekananda said, “I am happy not that I agree with the Gita. I am happy because the Gita agrees with me.”
