I need a new conscience; I’m fed up with the one I currently have; it’s way too loud, obnoxious and never ever shuts up…oh and the stupid thing never takes my side!!! Seriously, anyone knows where I can get a new ‘inner voice’ or better yet interested in exchanging yours with mine 😀
[Background to my plea]
So around 7:00 pm I logged onto Facebook and I see that there’s a lecture by DADI JANKI on “Secrets For True Wealth” at Salwa Al Sabah Hall at 8:00.
Me: Mom get dressed; we’re going go to a lecture on spirituality
Mom: Ahhhhh what’s the point? They don’t say anything I don’t already know. If you are in the mood to be lectured I can go on the mambar for ya. Here we go: Be good, be nice, be honest, let go of the past, be forgiving, be satisfied, be…
Me: Hahahaha very funny…come on… it starts in an hour.
[Blank look from my mom]
Me: Well, Dadi kinda looks like Lata Mangeshkar
So 30 minutes later we walk into the Hall, and who do I see sitting right on a couch as I enter—the only person I have ever treated not so nicely in my whole life and never apologized to. The same dude I was talking about in this post.
Me: Why, oh why God? Why do I have to see him here..and tonight of all nights.? Is this a sign?
Inner Voice: Yep, come on, this is your chance to be good again.
Me: I ain’t walking over to him…no way!!…and you have been seeing “The Kite Runner” way too many times!! WTH is with “you can be good again”?!!
Inner Voice: Fine, have it your way.
[A few minutes later]
Dadi: Honesty…I myself have never lied…why should I? What’s the point of lying? What are you afraid of?
Inner Voice: See? What are you afraid of?
Me: Shh…I’m trying to listen…hey hold on. I NEVER lied to him.
Inner Voice: Nope you didn’t lie; but you weren’t completely honest with him either.
Me: Huh? Look what I did wasn’t all that bad. Besides I don’t owe him any explanation for my action.
Dadi: Parents have to spend time with their kids to teach them morals
Inner Voice: See, your parents taught you better than this.
Me: Would you please Shhhhhhh. Seriously get off my back. Look this story goes back to my ‘dark’ days, and anything I did during those months cannot be held against me now.
Inner Voice: Do you think you ran into him here by accident? Why of all the nights, do you think you saw him tonight?
Me: Seriously, bug off….I’m trying to listen…ok fine…I’ll talk to him later.
Inner Voice: No you are not. At least be honest with your own inner voice. You never do the things you say you will do later.
Dadi: We have 3 enemies: carelessness, procrastination, and…
Me: ok, that’s it. I am out of here.
Inner Voice: Hehehehe…see I told ya so.
Here a video clip of Dadi…not the lecture she gave in Kuwait though
UPDATE: Thank you Grey for pointing out that I misspelled “conscience” 😀 😀 …opps
