Listen to the voice of your soul-I

God is righteousness. Learn to listen to the voice of God present in your soul. There is a veil over our mind or manas which either distorts or stops us from listening to the voice of our soul. When we associate and socialize a lot with the worldly and unspiritual people, the ability to penetrate inside our soul diminishes because all of them, barring just a few are bahirmukhi or extroverted people and they are not pure. Therefore, be prudent in choosing the quality of people and the time spent with them.

Those people who learn the art of concentration and meditation on God will be able to focus their attention inwards with regular practice.

The attention span to listen attentively begins with concentration. Concentration is built and increased by meditation.

One reason for lack of attention and concentration is lack of vision. If one attempts to achieve higher goals and purpose of spiritual aspirations, he/she must have a vision, a much larger vision and their  minds will be focussed and concentrated in spite of whatever external conditions are- favourable or adverse. That is to say that if one has a great  vision in life, the mind will constantly be focussed irrespective of external conditions.

People find it difficult to listen to the voice of their soul because of various reasons. If one aspires to create a vision; if someone is desirous of having a great vision, that individual has to undergo various life experiences and then learn from them. The ability to learn from life experiences is an art and ingenuity.

While we undergo various life experiences, there is a voice inside us that speaks to us. Sit down calmly a few times in a day as well as before retiring at night; focus and watch your breath coming in and going out; concentrate; meditate; chant and then sit still as long as you can in peace and silence …..

All this will  enable and empower yourself to listen to this faint voice that speaks to you. It guides you; it enlightens you; it leads you to the right act and the right path; it tells you the most suitable answer and most of all it gives you tranquillity amidst unrest and confusion.

Listening with concentration is a talent and skill that serious seekers must cultivate in order to smoothen and heighten their spiritual path and to connect directly with God present inside quickly.

God is very beautiful. God is pious, sacred and taintless. So when God speaks to us in moments of absolute inner silence the guidance is impeccable. It is perfect! God’s voice is small and feeble yet very powerful and comprehensive. God can read and tell one’s innermost intentions and the degree of seriousness of one’s intentions.

God’s voice inside our heart is the never ending flame of Divine Light. So why don’t you sit down calmly many times a day to listen and heed to that pious voice that is shaashwat, eternal; that which never dies? A voice that will never falter, abate or vacillate.

In moments of distress or trials, this voice never forsakes you. It is you who becomes more stormy, confused, angry or dejected. It is during such times that you must not forsake or forget to pray to God by distancing yourself from the external world and then sit in quietude and wait till you listen what God has to say to you!

God loves all equally but everyone does not love God. The more you learn to listen and connect with God, the better the quality of your life will be. God is pakshpaat rahit  -unbiased. If you love God and pay heed to what is suggested, the gates of his spiritual kingdom shall be opened for you as a Grace.

Devotees who have God’s kind Grace and mercy shall fear nothing and nothing is impossible for them. So whenever you experience turmoil, disconnection with your inner self, silence your mind by sitting down quietly to meditate, to listen to the voice of God within you!

    Yes, God’s voice in one answers to many people’s prayers and questions. This post is for many people. Though we may be hearing that inner voice, we may not be either sensitized or accustomed to it. So become accustomed to it and find all your answers within yourself. Navigate your own path. God bless.

  2. Dear Aunty,

    Waiting for the Divine union, is my baggage of karmas so heavy that he is refraining himself from me?

    Love

    Garima

    Yes, have started this process and am eager to listen to the voice of God within me.

    Picture of the flower in this post is WOW…Can I know where it was taken and name of this beauty ?

  5. spiritinlife says:

    Crucial post, important because the ultimate aim of doing spirituality is to be able to listen to the voice of our soul and then be guided by it all the time.
    This WOW flower was found unexpectedly at the Mumbai airport in Feb’12 as I was about to leave for Hyderabad for Sri Sailam shrine. Invested some time and enjoyed the session and used it in the post! I do not know the name of this one, it looks like a hardy tree with very pretty flowers.

    Read this post again today morning.
    God in me, Please awaken me to your presence and
    guide me to hear your voice. I desire to be in the backseat
    and want YOU to be the driver of my life. I desire to lead
    a life lead by spirit/god/higher self and not the ego.
    I desire to awaken to my inner talents/gifts and use them
    while I am on earth for the highest good of all.
    Thank you ❤

    Thank you so much dear mom ❤

    • spiritinlife says:

      Shahid, it is the storm of our fate that blows our candle of hope away. But the few exceptions never forget that God has never ceased to look after us no matter what has happened.The Voice of God will never leave us until we decide to forsake it. So those people who are struggling with their lives and circumstances today should never forsake their conscience because it never dies. It will always guide you to the right cause and right action so have undying faith in it as it is ours. God loves us always.
      Lovingly
      Mom

    Thank you so much Ma.
    Pranams.

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Chaya please make it mandatory to do what you have mentioned above in times of distress and on happy normal days also. Learn to go inside and calm the mind, one should practice it very sincerely to make a strong foundation to still the mind. If you don’t do this, then the out of control, tormented mind will give you deep suffering. Just remember God and don’t allow the mind to make you suffer in times of crisis. God bless you always. Yours Ma

  13. Chaya says:

    Dearest Ma, humble Pranams,
    Yes, I will continue to practice it.
    Thank you.
    With Gratitude, Love and Revence to Babaji and you dear Ma…
