Have you ever listened to that inner voice and taken that singular decision that hurts your flesh?
I am talking about those that you know are the best for you whilst your emotions seem to scream out against them...would love to hear from you
it is ALWAYS IMPORTANT to CHECK OUT everything that comes to you from the inner or the outer. The emotions betray, thoughts go up and down,
I really don't think that I have done that.. Something I am working on slowly I suppose but surely as I see it. Maybe it's far from that, my answer would only be bias.
I'm not sure that I really understand the question.
I have gone back into a building during an earthquake to retrieve things that I knew we would need despite the chance the the building could collapse.
So if you are asking if we have put aside the instinct to flee in order to act rationally I would have to say yes.
I have been the cause of my own heartache, usually through pride or bad decisions.....
but to harm my own flesh? No, just not my way.
In recent years, I have become aware of people who " cut" themselves, in an attempt to release inner pain. Are you, perhaps, speaking of this?
I know someone like this, and I would like to know more.......
I think I have. I'm pretty sure you're not talking about "cutting," as another commenter wondered, and I certainly am not, either. I'm thinking of life changes that I went forward with recently which required much wading through many conflicting signals, both without and within. This is an excruciating thing.

How do you learn to listen to your inner voice?My inner voice, or conscience, or intuition, or whatever it is, tells me to do things sometimes. When I listen and follow through, it is usually a good outcome. More than not, though, I tend to ignore it. How can I learn to pay more attention to it?

Are the ultimate truths outside ourselves or are we better off listening to what arises from within?Should we be guided by books and others, or are we better off fine tuning those inner whispers and feelings to lead the way?
