I’m currently enjoying a book called “The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself,” by Michael A. Singer. An early chapter is titled “Your Inner Roommate,” which is about your inner chatterbox, the voice that is often going on inside your head, a voice that can be an inner critic, a negative, gloomy, worrywart. While nothing I’ve read so far is necessarily new to human thought, “The Untethered Soul” has a refreshing and clear way of putting things. Or maybe I’m just reading it at a point in time when I’m more open.
“You will never be free of problems until you are free from the part within you that has so many problems.”
“… change from ‘outer consciousness’ to ‘inner consciousness’… break the habit of thinking that the solution to your problems is to re-arrange things outside. The only permanent solution is to go inside and let go of the part of you that has so many problems with reality.”
