Starting Over / New Beginnings

Here’s one of the reasons the mind won’t stop it’s incessant chattering: we’ve become so identified with being in the company of all the (familiar) voices in our head, we actually fear their silence means that, somehow, we’ve been left alone, or forsaken.
Talking to ourselves ensures we remain the unwitting captive of a lower level of consciousness that never stops judging us, others, or the world through which we walk!
All forms of self-talk are an unconscious, yet “deliberate” intervention in our intended participation in the revelation and fulfillment of creation.
Allowing any part of self to act in such a way as to deny yourself a new awareness of yourself -- whatever its quality -- is the same as refusing your right to realize the limitless depth and breadth of your true Self.
Resistance to any form of painful desire is how (that) desire ensures its “fire” never goes out. To see the truth of this revelation is the first step required of anyone who seeks to be released from their unconscious relationship with this self-induced form of suffering.
If we know better than to look for the living in a grave yard, then why don’t we know better than to listen to old thoughts and feelings that keep promising us a new life, but that we’ve already seen -- time and time again -- have proven themselves to be dead on arrival.
My most contented hours are those filled with emptiness; and I regret -- as comes their appointed time -- having to fill these precious moments with what is little more than the mandatory, but mostly empty business of this world: attending to all of the virtually endless forms that are, at best, shadows of the real... at worst, vanities.
Whatever may be troubling you, just let it go: the hand, the heart that resists and then fears any sudden sense of emptiness is neither your hand, nor your heart. Your True Self is empty of useless, painful resistance... and full of the Light that reveals it as such.
