The voices in your head

Don’t worry, you're not a schizophrenic.

We all have different voices in our head.

These voices have been labelled differently throughout eastern thought, western science and global interpretation.

You may have heard names such as the “ego”, the “chimp” or the “inner child”.

The way I like to interpret the brain is to compare it to real-life situations:

If you are walking your dog and the dog bites a stranger, you can’t just say “ah stupid dog, he’s got a mind of his own!” No, you take responsibility for the dog as its owner.

This is how I see our more reasonable, higher self looking over the reactive, emotional facet of ourselves – an owner walking his dog.
