I had a dream this morning that brought me to an alert shock. One that was so moving, that in the moment I felt the message hit, I knew how my own life could be shaped they way I want it to be.
We are our own enemies.
This might sound obvious, or humorous. But it's true.
Every time we go to do something. Take an action, or maybe begin to speak. A voice goes through our head.
This voice can be of reason. Or it can be destructive (most). There may even be times that we don't hear the voice. But that doesn't mean it's not there. It's always there.
The difference between someone who may be without a home and speaking to themselves, and a normal human being, is that the normal person doesn't speak aloud.
In conclusion, it is the thoughts you aren't having consciously that are driving your behaviors, and ultimately, your happiness. Again, not that obvious.
We are carrying around so much weight throughout the day, that these little insights are critical to our well being. And they must be acted upon.
First, however, bring them to attention.
