Different voices

The voice of intellect talks about facts and theories.
The voice of emotion talks about joy and anger.
The voice of will talks about effort and results.
The voice of ego talks about pride and shame.
The voice of soul talks about generosity and hope.

Hold tensions rather than create them.
Build bridges rather than walls.
