Who is that voice in your head?

There are signs in everything, if only we paid attention, or reflected deeply enough on it.

It’s like noticing all the cars on the road that are similar to your own.

You may also notice cars that you really dislike, and cars that you love.

But do you notice cars that don’t interest you in any meaningful way?

No. Those, we navigate around as objects or obstacles in our efforts to get to our destination.

The same is true about everything else in life.

We notice that which feeds our interest in what we’re trying to achieve.

Convinced that your partner is annoying? You’ll recognise every annoying habit and you’ll dismiss every endearing quality.

Convinced that you’re not good enough? You’ll doubt every sincere gesture, and you’ll hold onto every criticism.

You’ll even selectively interpret things the way that you want it to fit into your belief about what is true.

That’s how we convince ourselves that the universe is sending us a sign.

It’s not. We’re looking for the evidence of what we want to believe is true.

Hence the importance of being mindful. Not just of what’s going on around you, but especially being mindful of what’s going on within you.

It always starts with you.
