Flap your wings—which translates as “let go of the story”—and return to the only place of power: the present moment. – Eckhart Tolle
The voice in our head tends to control our every move. It’s called the ego. It’s this living breathing thing that looks to you to feed it. The ego is able to survive by living through your actions.
Because of this your life becomes that of the ego. Your version of reality is the ego, thus the introduction to your unhappiness.
