Programmed Self-talk versus Enlightened Self-talk
We have all been programmed by society to think, talk and feel in habitual unhealthy ways. This unconscious self-talk determines our experience. We see what we believe. We live according to our ego story. Essentially everything we do is motivated by the desire for self-confirmation. We have long forgotten that we are spiritual beings that God made in his perfect image. Our experience therefore becomes circular, repetitive, and out of control. “Why is this happening to me again?” becomes our constant complaint. We have no idea that we (the collective and the individual) are creating our own suffering, anxiety and symptoms. Why would anyone create what they don’t want?
We cannot tell the difference in our symptoms and our problem. We self-diagnose and self-medicate incorrectly, based upon our programming. What our five senses tell us, and what our feelings and reason reinforce, are programmed. We have learned to judge and blame. We do not understand the source of our pain, and therefore our efforts to fix it fall short. We do not see that our self-talk is the problem. The chief error in our programmed self-talk is about the word “I” We assume that we know who “I” is. We assume that “I” am my ego, my story, my social identity. We have learned to ignore our spiritual “I”.
Ego-I self-talk has taken control and the God-I is forgotten.
If our ego self-talk is not recognized and let go of, our symptoms just get worse. Our symptoms do not need medicating because they are our friendly reminders that we are living in ignorance of our true spiritual God-I identity.
I have written two articles about the self-talk changes that we must make if we are to re-claim our spiritual identity and get off of the merry-go-round of seeking self-confirmation. (of the ego-I) We are now dominated by our “wants-and-don’t-wants“, as well as by our “shoulds-and-should-nots”, which cause us to feel like victims.
These two articles below I. “Healthy Self-talk” and
II. “God is my Infinite Good” are designed to be read daily and hourly if necessary, or at least every time we get upset. All upsets are due to our ignorant programmed.

Healthy Self-talk Summary: By far the healthiest self-talk is silence. Over 600 studies during the past 50 years in over 30 countries show that meditation by far is the healthiest medication on the planet for most health problems. The reason for this is that stress arises from unhealthy self-talk.
When the body is relaxed and the mind is meditatively quiet, still, empty and receptive, there is an available creative flow (from Consciousness Itself) of infinite intelligence, unconditional love, absolute goodness, healthy energy, powerful peaceful light, clear understanding and practical relevant self-talk and intuition, which we call Receptive Listening. Emptiness is not something to be feared and avoided. Limbo is a gift. If we let go of the compulsive attachment to the incessant chatter and busyness in our story we can discover the Quiet Mind. “Could you not watch with me one hour?” was Jesus request. Programmed self-talk from the sea of mental garbage and suffering is replaced by spiritual wisdom through Receptive Listening. .
Request wisdom. Quieten the mind. Watch. Wait. Listen. Discern. Receive in gratitude.
