That Voice in Your Head

Have you ever noticed that voice in your head? It talks almost constantly. One thought leads to another and another and another…
The voice in your head evaluates everything, judges everything. It never shuts up. When enough isn’t happening right now to keep it occupied—and, let’s be honest, the now isn’t where we are most of the time—we think about the past or worry about the future.

The chattering inside our heads is constant, giving us no piece at all. Why, if most of us were locked inside a room with a person who talked constantly, we’d go mad. Yet, because the voice is our voice inside our head, quietly hidden from the rest of the world, it’s okay. We continue along in the madhouse we call our minds.
But it’s not okay. The constant chatter of your mind hides the real you. Your mind, based on experience and stories that you tell yourself about events, gives you a false sense of self.

You are not your personality.

You are not your faults.

You are not your strengths.

You are not your profession.

You are not your achievements.

You are beyond thought.

You are beyond form.

You are beyond opposites.

You are the great I AM

But you’ll never get to meet I AM until you settle your mind into stillness. However, before you can get to the stillness, you must learn how to handle your thoughts so that they don’t influence or bother you in any way.
Yesterday, I ran across this YouTube video by Matt Kahn. In it, he poses an interesting suggestion on how to deal with your thoughts. Watch it and let me know what you think!


  1. Christine---I a technique similiar to this....it works...I'm going to add some of Matt's. Thanks for this post.

  2. You're very welcome. I just found Matt recently by accident (although nothing is really ever an accident, is it?) and he has so much spiritual wisdom to share, it's unbelievable!
