“Ever since you were a child, you’ve had energies going on inside. Wake up and realize that you are in there, and you have a sensitive person in there with you. Simply watch that sensitive part of you feel disturbance. See it feel jealousy, need, and fear. These feelings are just part of the nature of a human being. If you pay attention, you will see that they are not you; they are just something you’re feeling and experiencing. You are the indwelling being that is aware of all this. If you maintain your center, you can learn to appreciate and respect even the difficult experiences.
Once you learn that it’s OK to feel inner disturbances, you will be free.”
-Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul, chapter 9, Removing Your Inner Thorn.
