The Inner Voice and Externals that Alter It

Your thoughts determine how you react to externals

Because they determine how you see these externals

But I’m of course not talking about every thought

I’m talking about those thoughts that have gathered

Themselves within you in the form of assessments

Judgements and interpretations for instance

“I like this” and “I don’t like that”

“I am the kind of person who”…”I’m a person who doesn’t”…

All those self-defining patterns that are

Prompted by a deep sense of ‘I am’

Of being a ‘one of a kind’ phenomenon

And that keeps asserting itself in our lives

In restlessness when we know our lives are stuck

In knowing that even though there’s nothing

Wrong with our present circumstances there is

Something else we should be doing – if only we knew what

Which brings me back to where these notes began

Your thoughts determine how you react to externals

But they also determine how you hear this inner voice

Do you hear this deeper sense of ‘I am’?

Are you too busy to listen? Have you decided

All such ideas are grandiose or unreachable?

Are you afraid, as Nelson Mandela asked,

Of your own greatness?

Witness to your patterns of thought and behaviours

And take back control of your own life
