Do you understand why the chatterbox is causing me to have so much distress in trying to figure out this voice in my head that keeps talking to me? It is has if I have separated my self from it. Nobody I know understands what I am talking about. It is like I am so aware of this internal voice and I have no control over it. I think of it as an enemy because it keeps making me distressed. I am aware of this monkey mind but I don’t understand it and no one I know understands it. Do you? I feel as if I am a spectator listening to this inner negative voice and at the same time trying to understand it. Can you help me? Thank you
Our parents taught us to describe our world with words, it is quite handy, but that hardens, that makes reality much more rigid, that certainly reassures us. So we took the bad habit to make at every moment the inventory of the reality which surrounds us, calling by their names all the things, all the events; we should learn again to perceive things like before we knew how to talk. Such a silence, such a greatness, such a freedom, to learn again that we should use our will and unlearn how to think. Brake, expel the thoughts which come in. Do that before falling asleep until the thoughts and the images which come into your brain become incoherent. It is the signal that it is at this moment that the subconscious expresses itself. Let it go freely, plunge then in the dream and sleep well.
