My internal voice is loud today. If I keep myself busy with tasks or music or talking, I can lose track of it. But then as soon as a moment of quiet arises my mind drifts back, my ego talks, my self assuredness wanes. Just like this meditation taught, I need to be more aware of all sounds, even internal. I can hold onto thoughts that serve me. I can let go of others that do not. I may not ever be able to fully silence my internal critic or my ego, but I can listen to it and acknowledge when it’s running on overdrive.
