The voice in your head is the path to freedom

You are not the voice in your head, but you are the one that can hear it.

A step towards spiritual growth is to go from hearing it to listening to it objectively.

Once you start doing that, you will also start realizing that in the world that is happening inside your head, there is always something you can do to take control of your life experience.

It can be a decision to do something, or it can also be the decision to let go or to become unaffected.

In stoicism, this is known as freedom.

Often, you don’t get to choose what happens to you in the material world. However, you get to choose how you respond to the events in your life and how you will be affected by them.

And so as you see, the same voice that you feel brings you a lot of worry and stress can also be the source for great inner power.

Get properly acquainted to the person listening to that voice, and you will be on the path to true spiritual awakening.
