I have been lead to believe this is due to the fact that we chose to recreate ourselves to be like those around us in childhood.
Now you may say this is not the case. If at any time you said in yourself, I want to be like? Then you chose to look at yourself as less than that someone. Then you started to shift to be acceptable in your own opinion of yourself, for that person.
Sit with that for a moment, if that is the case, then we chose to oppress ourselves to be acceptable to others. Be it Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, to be in a group of friends or social status. In this we are saying within ourselves, others are better than I. It is all a guessing game in, how will I fit in to wherever I choose? Being our true self or being true to ourselves was never an option, in our own opinion.
It is no wonder things seem to be so crazy, as we have allowed the other part of us to run the show. There is a constant conversation going on inside each one of us, it is between you and your mind.
I know that sounds crazy also yet, this is how we create things like art, stories, invent. In these conversations some say “Talking to yourself is ok as long as you do not answer yourself” How do you think a story is told, written, a picture is painted, or music is created?
Not knowing our other partner inside is the only issue, and it is the creator of all our issues until recognized.
Even if this sounds crazy to you, I will give you yet another part.
If that voice in your head is you, then who or what is listening?
Thank you...Daniel James Wilson
