'Two people have been living in you all your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to.

As you listen more and more to the teachings, contemplate them, and integrate them into your life, your inner voice, your innate wisdom of discernment, what we call in Buddhism “discriminating awareness,” is awakened and strengthened, and you begin to distinguish between its guidance and the various clamorous and enthralling voices of ego. The memory of your real nature, with all its splendor and confidence, begins to return to you.

You will find, in fact, that you have uncovered in yourself your own wise guide, and as the voice of your wise guide, or discriminating awareness, grows stronger and clearer, you will start to distinguish between its truth and the various deceptions of the ego, and you will be able to listen to it with discernment and confidence.' ~ Sogyal Rinpoche

'We have also lost the sensitivity to listen to our own inner voice. Loss of this sensitivity is largely due to the conditioning of modernity that makes us think about ourselves as something independent and artificial.

We have distanced ourselves from our own nature, and when we distance ourselves from our own nature we also distance ourselves from nature surrounding us outside. This distance creates fear and conflict.' ~ 5th Samdhong Rinpoche, Lobsang Tenzin

“When you don't pay attention to your intuition, or go against it, you may find that you feel a certain heaviness, lack of energy, a kind of deadness. This is because the life force is trying to come through and move you in a certain way, and it is being blocked.” ~ Shakti Gawain

The more you come in contact with the inner silence, the inner emptiness, the more you have access to your intuition. Silence is the nourishment for intuition.

If something increases your love, joy and silence, it is the criterion that it is the right path for you. If something decreases your love, joy and silence, it is a sign that you are on the wrong path. ~ Swami Dhyan Giten

Moment after moment, completely devote yourself to listening to your inner voice. ~ Shunryu Suzuki

When we listen to the Inner Voice, our outer life becomes full of peace. ~ Sri Chinmoy

Presently we have to train our unconscious to function better. Then we can depend upon our instincts, that will be noble instincts. At this moment, our instincts are very impure. When we have practiced for a long time, living the higher values of life and following the instructions of great masters or the Scriptures, that is when you have trained your unconscious. Then when a situation comes, you can to an extent, depend on your inner voice.
~ Swami Chinmayananda Saraswati

Our intuition or wisdom has all the answers we need. So we just need to listen to it. But often we discriminate things based on beliefs created by society, people’s opinions or acquired information. Our innate wisdom which we call the inner voice or intuition always knows what is right for us. It constantly guides us in the right direction, and all we need to do is to learn to listen to it. ~ Brahmakumaris

Let us spend a few minutes with ourselves on a daily basis. Meditation and spiritual study silences our noisy minds and activate our intuition. You have all the answers within, tap into that wisdom to make every choice and decision. ~ Brahmakumaris

When you listen more to your intuition, you will also master the art of silencing your mind, thereby controlling your thoughts better. ~ Brahmakumaris

“In your mad rush after things you forget that that which is yours by your divine right, which no one can take away from you. Your very trust and peaceful attitude bring your mind in tune with Nature's scheme of life, and you receive that which belong to you by law of correspondence. ” ~ A.K. Mozumdar

"Without free-will, we have no way to discriminate between the right and the wrong. The discriminating faculty, without the free-will to choose, is
irreconcilable. Without its free-will, it will lose its meaning, purpose and application. In fact, there would be no such thing as a discriminating

Hence we maintain, that the discriminating faculty and free will go hand in hand. The operation of free will is confined only to our mental
realm. Its application is in the bringing of our conscious aspect of mental life in tune with the Universal action of the Urge. This universal
action and its purpose have sometimes been called the Father's Will." ~ A.K. Mozumdar

“Practice stillness and find solace in silence. The answers reside in the quiet spaces within.” ~ Sister Shivani ( Prajapita Brahmakumaris )

Intuition is the inner tuition you get when you spend time in silence. ~ Brahmakumaris

A silent mind can silently find accurate and creative solutions to every problem. ~ Brahmakumaris

Your conscience is your core, innately pure and divine. It is always there to guide your actions but its voice is unheard by the noise of your waste thoughts. Your only effort is to quiet your mind by tool of awareness and your peace will emerge. ~ Brahmakumaris

Everyday life must be guided by discrimination and inspired by the highest intuitions. ~ Meher Baba

The intuition is not an emotion or psychic thing; it's not imagination; in some sense it's developing a higher contact with Reality than that which reason gives us. ~ Meher Baba
