Mindfulness and self talk?

.

“Mindfulness is a perspective of benign curiosity about all of your inner experience.

I cannot overstate the importance of becoming aware of your inner self-commentary.”

Pete Walker

Edward Bourne: self-talk;

“It is so automatic and subtle you don’t notice it or the effect it has on your moods and feelings.

It appears in telegraphic form- one short word or image (”Oh no!) contains a whole series of thoughts, memories, or associations.”

My two cents: So much goes on below the surface that impacts the way we feel about ourselves.

How can we be happy with a stream of trauma and unworthiness flowing underground.

Sit quietly, intently focused on the breath, journey inside, soothe the internal hurt you carry.

Relief is available if we take action.
