What does the voice in your head say to you?

Tweet Previously, we’ve been looking at how the mind operates and dispelling ideas of its complexity. We’ve been taking this approach because when we look at the simplicity of the mind, we see more clearly that we have the power and authority to handle the mind and thus have it serve us rather than becoming a slave to it.
