I've heard this called the still small voice (1 Kings 19:12) but the Bible reference seems to indicate that it was external not internal.

I call it "the awareness reading these words at the moment." Henry David Thoreau, who's famous for finding the ineffable in nature (not in church) also recognized an inner observer that seemed separate from himself.

And it is true that many times our minds have trouble of keeping up with what we experience, sometimes never figuring it out, sometimes requiring detective work.
