As far as my understanding of inner voice is considered, it is there to answer the deeper questions such as why am I born, what is the mission I have to accomplish at the earth, etc. Although for our own convenience, we engage it to answer the mundane everyday questions such as will he/she be the right person in my life for marriage, or will this job or business prove better for me and take my life to the next level, etc. though such questions become important for a person at given situations and times. However, the everyday engagement of the inner voice to answer such questions is a mistake for me. In fact, I myself have been a person, for a long time now, who has indulged in such a misuse of the inner voice.
Thus, there is a big realization and learning about the inner voice. Just as if we will appoint somebody for accomplishing a certain task of his/her capability, and will not just assign him/her the assignments falling short of his/her capacity, we should not use the massive power such as the inner voice just to answer such mundane questions. We should rather engage it in finding answers of bigger questions; instead of asking the answers of lighter questions related to the superficial level of our life, we need to learn to engage the inner voice in getting answers of better soul-related questions and see the difference it makes in our lives for ourselves.
I have been trying to do exactly the same at present in my life, thus, it is a phase of transition in my life. With everyday writing about inner voice, I keep my attention on it and try and extract whatever valuable I can. Later I share my findings and understanding with you, the readers. This actually helps me attain some new, more deeper understanding of my life; it does help in making my struggle in life a bit easier, smoother, since for the time I am thinking and writing about it, the inner voice, I forget about all mundane responsibilities of my life (can’t say the same about the readers).
This is now working for me. I think I am on the right track, as they say in Buddhism.
