What is Inner self or Aatman (आत्मा)? According to Bhagwad Gita, Aatman is nothing but the soul. In hinduism the soul is referred or called as self. The soul is higher than the senses and the conscious mind. The soul and the body are different. The body is destructible but the soul is indestructible and eternal that is at the time of death the body is destroyed but as the soul leaves the body its not destroyed.
Your inner self or you soul is very powerful and knows everything. It constantly helps you by giving you different signs or intuitions or even creates circumstances to pass you the answer you had demanded for your specific question. But to get these messages you have to be alert and know when the message is being delivered or if the event has occurred for you.
The following is a verse from Bhagwad Gita:
Synonym: sarva-bhuta-stham—situated in all beings; atmanam—the Supersoul; sarva—all; bhutani—entities; ca—also; atmani—in the Self; iksate—does see; yoga-yukta-atma—one who is dovetailed in Krsna consciousness; sarvatra—everywhere; sama-darsanah—seeing equally.
Translation: A true yogi observes Me in all beings, and also sees every being in Me. Indeed, the self-realized man sees Me everywhere.(Excerpts taken from here)
Thus if you get to know your inner self you can get to know your soul and attain true happiness and get proper directions or answers for all your questions and thus be on gods path.
Help yourself.. Help your inner self, Keep helping.. Keep Smiling 🙂
