Talking To The self

When you talk to yourself in your mind, which self do you address? And how?
Usually people do not talk to their divinity, but to the most superficial aspects of their everyday personality. And often its a stream of fears, complaints and mindless repetition of old things. If we talked that way to another human being, we would have to apologise.
Learning to talk properly to the self is a spiritual endeavour. Thoughts from the past and worries about the future do not create good conversation.
Instead learn to talk to your mind as if it were a child. Talk to it with love. If you just force a child to sit down, he won't. A good mother knows how to prompt her child into doing what she wants.
Be a good mother to your mind, teach it good, positive thoughts so that when you tell it to sit quietly, it will.
Love your mind. Stay happy.

  6. Dear Surjit, I know that Self-talk is a continuous awaken conversation between the I and a me. It can be interesting. Yet, here I learn it can be like a Mother and a Child approach. Very consoling, as it relates to total trust of self and the Self is lifeward, and the Godward. Wow!

  22. I have to say that is important to talk to the highest self with in us because that is the spirit wich is in close conection with our Father but also I think it is very important to just leave your mind in blank, in meditation, so your Spirit can talk to you, listen to what he has to say to you, and let him bring all that peace, harmony, love and guidence to progress in life, so it can work cleaning that mind in polution, silence the mind and listen the spirit, he has different ways to talk to you, but if you don't quiet the mind, you won't listen, when we quiet the mind we can also uncover our eyes, and see again with the eyes of our spirit, the time is getting shorter and shorter, we need to have strong spiritual education and live as spiritual and cosmic beings.
    I love the music in your website :)
    Thank you for sharing your light with all of us :)
