Which Voice?


I start to feel like I’m slipping.
Is it because I’m so tired?
Have I done too much today?
But wait,
am I not here
to help others?
I should be doing more.
But I’m not feeling so great.
I’m tired.
I don’t want to do anything
for anyone.
Stop being selfish.
But I need to put on
my oxygen mask
Stop being so self-absorbed.
I’m feeling lonely.
I don’t want to do this.
Stop whining. Buck up.

Get back to work.
But I’m tired.
So many voices in my head.
Which one is telling
the truth?

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, about your many thoughts. Yeah, they can be a cacophony of voices, and which is true? I’ve been noticing that when the thoughts in my head pull one direction, my heart has a lot to say. Oh, and my gut (intuition) chimes, in, too. It’s better than stereo is for ears, because with these three views, I often get a more complete perspective.
    Oh, and then I can let my head have a little rest. šŸ™‚

    • Such a good point Vincent, that we can be listening to whole other realms of consciousness besides what appears in our head. It’s humbling as a yoga teacher to recognize that I’m quite adept at leading my students to awareness of their bodies, minds and hearts, but when it comes to me being aware of my Self, I can get lost so easily in the turbulent ocean of thinking and forget I even have a body. So glad to know I have friends on the path. āœØā¤ļøšŸŒˆšŸ™šŸ» It’s good to hear from you. ā¤ļø
