In the groundwork of understanding psychology and the understanding of others and ourselves, there is basic rule. That very basic rule is: What you see is always your own reflection in the mirror. So, if you experience something in this world that calls for the warrior in you – it is because you are that thing – and what you are opposing is your own reflection.
Quiet of a bit narcissistic argument – Everything is about you!
No, it is not, it is noise.
If we engage in a journey, which many of us obviously are, there comes a breaking point. That breaking point is when we stop identifying ourselves with this world and its manifestations. We go outside the world of programming, both psychologically and physically, and an entity steps in.
That entity has many names: The Observer, The Silent Witness and more.
Often when I write about our ‘self-talk’ I describe is as the inner dialogue. Others call it the inner monologue, but it is a dialogue due to the split in the consciousness. As I wrote in another post: It is the dialogue between the soul and the ego.
The monologue, the internal monologue, is still ‘just’ the personality or the Ego talking to itself. That is why narcissists or sociopaths are lost when it comes to self-improvement. They have nobody on the inside to teach them.
The internal dialogue is the inner master talking to the apprentice – the ego, the personality – and it often gives us the hints on how to proceed and what to trust or what not to trust.
Allow me to debunk the “What you see is yourself”, or as I prefer to label it: “If You Spot It You Got it.”
As we travel the narrow roads and not the highways to self-enlightenment, self-understanding, self-improvement, we become very aware that we do not travel alone. The observer is with us. The observer warns us and endorses us with regard to directions, and especially it directs us to see the Matrixes, both in spirituality and the mundane. The horizontal world and the vertical world.
Most people, even people who see themselves as teachers, would say to you: What you do not like in this world, and especially what you fight in this world, is your own shadow. And if that argument isn’t enough to keep you in chains, they will also let you know that what you are fighting is your own reflection in a mirror. Often, they will pull the subconscious card on you like: You don’t really know that this is what you are doing – it’s the subconscious you see! No, it is not.
It is 10 cent psychology for absolute beginners.
