When we are engaged in the narratives of the world, playing in our minds the stories we construct about others and ourselves, we are clogged up with superficial illusions.
We cannot plug into universal truth, which is the wonder, divine magic and oneness that’s all around us. It’s all we are, all that is. We cannot experience the interconnectedness of it all.
Once we recognise those narratives running through our heads, we can reduce and eventually remove them. They sound like we are telling ourselves a story in our thoughts, or sometimes we are rehearsing a conversation we would like to have with somebody, explaining our point of view. We become the narrator and are defining and fixing the story, even though it’s merely a perspective coming from our ego or wounded self.
Once we become aware of ourselves having these internal conversations, we can stop them. It’s that simple, it just takes a little patience and practice.
The less often those narratives are running, the more we naturally open up to the interconnected wonder of universal truth that has always been present, and yet hidden by the dialogue in our head.
This is such a simple and yet profound gift to give yourself. Are you ready to let go of your narratives?
