The people that are highly religious always think that the two voices in their heads are ‘God on one shoulder and the devil on the other’. But those two voices you often hear from within you are actually your survival instinct and your higher self. Your survival instinct will always try to point out those things that are not good in order to make you avoid problems while your higher self is the real you, the soul consciousness that is so, so much more than the physical form you know so well. This is what is referred to as survival technique.
