“What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.” – Eckhart Tolle
I often listen to Sadhguru, he is a Yogi, mystic and visionary. Here’s my thoughts on Conscious Choosing.
My experience in life is constantly being generated from within. What I generate within, reflects in my world. When I am generating unconscious thoughts, beliefs and fears, they become a magnet to the outside world and head my way.
When I am not consciously choosing, I end up allowing someone else to choose. Meaning, I only feel happy when others make me happy, or when things go my way; or I become upset and unhappy when someone does something to me, or when I do not receive what I want.
We all have a vivid sense of memory and a vivid sense of imagination, but if I stay stuck in the memories of my past, in my grief and pain, or stay trapped in my fear of the future, I will suffer.
When I consciously practice choosing which thoughts I listen to and which thoughts I let go of, I become the observer of my life and expand. When I expand, I learn to see a deeper, clearer version of myself and the truth.
