"The Internal Dialogue" Communication is one of the essential pillars in personal relationships of love, friendship, family ties, etc. However, it is very important to note that one of the most important relationships that a human being has throughout his life is with himself. This is done through internal dialogue, since the person has the ability to think, reflect and deliberate. There is an inner struggle between two opposing intentions. This is the case, for example, when a person is not clear what decision to make regarding a particular matter. The internal dialogue brings energy and vitality to cope with everyday routine. This inner dialogue is very necessary and very constructive, and is in fact healthy; we find time and space in the day to be alone and get away from everything else. When a person improves dialogue with oneself, it also improves your communication with others, as a higher level of self-knowledge makes it possible to build stronger and more enriching relationships. The dialogue has been around since time immemorial, recorded in documents bequeathed to us by the ancient Sumerians. The deeper dialogue is found in the Bhagavad-gita, the most important work of Hindu thought. Dialogue was particularly important in Greek culture, especially through Socrates and his speeches in which the author held interesting and infinite discursive exchanges with different types of audiences. The internal dialogue needs to be open to tolerance and respect for other position. Basically, the internal dialogue should be characterized by a constant debate and exchange in order to find an objective to help us grow as human beings. The speech in dialogue form allows reflection that enhances the use of questions. In the Platonic dialogues, Socrates is the sage who enlightens his interlocutor through questions that are full of lucidity. Krishna in the Bhagavad-gita is the consciousness that clears all doubts of Arjuna and it throws light on matters such as yoga and self-realization. The internal dialogue is nothing but the conversations we have with ourselves all of the time, that little voice of mind with which we are always interacting, even as if it were someone else. Basically, internal dialogue can be called communication with our inner selves, partly guided by our subconscious mind, when we perform certain activities, we can count on its support or rejection, but through the guidance of consciousness, which is the argument, it allows our intelligence to make the link, discerning and using our free will. With self-communication and a good command of emotions, we may have the mind itself as an ally, which is one of the best things that can happen, and change is evident in the short and long term thankfully. The Internal Dialogue, when it is well structured and is directed towards success, allows you to continue and move forward despite tripping and falling, prevents your eyes clouding with tears and gives you the strength to continue when you know that all is lost. It is not something that humans come programmed to do, is not a gift that some people have at birth, but on the contrary is a skill that is created over time. The inner dialogue moulds and creates new habits; positive and constructive habits to grow as a person and give the best of yourself to the world. This book, through internal dialogue, builds on some of the doubts of Arjuna in the Bhagavad-gita Krishna Dwaipayana Vyasa, and Krishna responds as if it were our consciousness that gives us these truths.
