“All the things that truly matter, beauty, love, creativity, joy and inner peace arise from beyond the mind.” ~Eckhart Tolle
Your beautiful mind can be your worst enemy.
I know someone who suffers from schizophrenia. He constantly hears voices, like a radio in his head. It's a constant distraction, making it nearly impossible to hold a job or do anything that requires concentration.
The worst part is that the voices say negative, demeaning things to him. He's trapped by his mind and his illness.
In truth, we all suffer from voices in our head. They may not be audible, and they may not always be negative or demeaning, but there's a constant babble of information, worries, instant replays of interactions, thinking ahead, or ruminating about the past.
