“The greatest battles of life are fought out every day in the silent chambers of one’s own soul,” said David O. McKay. I personally agree with this thought. I came across an entrepreneur who possessed a fortune in billions. Whenever he meets me, he regrets and complains about his life. He usually gets into conflict and possesses ill feelings for his family, friends and organisation.
Are you living with purpose? Does your compass have principles? Do you find a conflict between your inner noise and outside accomplishment?
How often do you feel that your inner noise is stopping you without any reasons? You won’t find any justification while using intelligence following inner noise.
The inner noise is an activity of the mind manifested as inner conversation, inner monologue and a tendency to constantly think, analyze, compare and repeat thoughts in the mind.
“Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it,” quoted Hardy D. Jackson
While performing a new piano concerto at the Theatre An der Wien one evening, Beethoven began to conduct from his seat at the keyboard (a fairly common practice at the time). At the first sforzando, however, he raised his arms with such passion that he knocked over the piano lights.
Beginning the concerto again (with choir boys holding up the piano lights), Beethoven again dramatically raised his arms, this time striking one of the boys (who dropped his light), causing the other to astutely duck – and sending the audience into fits of laughter. (Enraged, Beethoven struck the piano with such force that he broke six strings playing the first chord. On similar occasions, the first violinist was known to sneak up behind Beethoven and conduct the piece correctly. (While conducting his Ninth Symphony at a concert in Vienna, Beethoven became so engrossed in the score that he continued to turn its pages while the audience gave him a thunderous ovation. Not until a singer finally pointed and pulled at Beethoven’s sleeve did he turn and bow.)
Once you start a day, hopefully when you jump out from bed for a purpose of a day, inculcate a habit to meet yourself and start mutual discovery. A noise will come which shows the way of life and if you follow that noise, the immense amount of pleasure will be produced at the end of the day. Unbelievable but experience it and feel the difference in your life. Trust me it will never cease your growth.
I firmly believe that a day without an inner noise is killing an opportunity to serve God, Nation and Professional career. Daily goal + inner noise will add ever lasting peace and harmony in life. Hence, it is important to walk on the path of inner noise.
“It is the soul’s duty to be loyal to its own desires. It must abandon itself to its maser passion,” said Rebecca West.
