Enough With The Trash Talk Already
On Loud Speaker
She couldn’t believe her ears. The constant barrage of the most uncomplimentary trash talk was totally embarrassing. The mild mannered meek receiver stood there and took the insults. She wondered why it was tolerated. The relentless fault finding, criticism, blaming, chastising and mocking was enough to drive anybody crazy. Why didn’t he stand up for himself and fight back? It was totally beyond her comprehension.
Finally, when she could take it no longer, she went over to the guy and asked point blankedly, “How can you put up with all that trash talk? It’s bull! Why don’t you fight back?”
He looked up at her in wonder, “You can hear all of that?” She nodded in confusion. “That’s the little voice inside my head and I thought only I could hear it.”
Ah – Ha!
Her jaw dropped and she slowly began to understand. It is that voice, that ever present voice inside our heads talking… except this time this one was on loud speaker. The chatter voice is mostly uncomplimentary, fault finding, blaming, reprimanding, punishing and scoffing at itself. It’s the big old cold ego belittling self, second guessing and doubting every move. That voice has been at it for years and is well practiced at pushing personal hot buttons. At day’s end the voice knows full well how to manipulate and keep you in place because… you created it!
At this moment it’s telling you you’re not its creator, it has a “mind” of its own and you’re not responsible. Ego defends itself against all contenders, all intruders, every piece of solid advice to keep the status quo. It harnesses our energy, belittles our desire, mutes our spiritual being and crashes all hope at every opportunity.
She wonders if it really is that hopeless. Aren’t these only thoughts; the things going on inside our heads that we take as real and unbreakable? Practice at keeping us from exploring and expanding our thinking has made that voice in our heads the most destructive power on earth. Yet, she ponders, if we really made it, can’t we UNmake it?
