The Walking Experiment – To Know the Inner Voice

If we watch ourselves carefully, we will know that we are always in a hurry. Whatever we are doing, walking, eating, driving, working, we are always in a hurry to finish. But we do not know the reason for our hurried-ness  We do not know what will we do after we finish what we are doing now. But we are always in the hurry to finish.

This hurried-ness comes is unconsciousness. We don’t know but we hurry. If you read my post “Why we hate? – The exercise”, you will know that we are not one, but we are divided into so many identities. Some of then we are already and the other identities, we want to be. But this whole thing is imaginary. All the “I”s are imaginary.

We are in a hurry because, we fear that if we are late, we might cease to be what we think we are, we may no longer be the “I” we think we are. These “I”s make us who we are, otherwise who we would be. But the strangest part is that, all these “I”s are imaginary and we keep chasing and protecting these “I”s all our lives. It is just like you imagine someone has thrown a ball high up, an imaginary ball, thrown high up by an imaginary person, and you run to catch the imaginary ball in reality. This is madness.

All those things that are in your mind are imaginary, they cannot be real, but take them to be real, they make us who we are, how can we let them go? The only reality is here and now.

In your mind, automatically you are put in a situation, good or bad, whatever, and then another “I” emerges rationalizes the situation. If it is a bad situation, the “I” says “don’t worry everything will be fine” and if it is a good situation, you rejoice in your imagination. But the unfortunate part is that everything is imaginary, except what you are doing here and now.

In your mind, several “I”s emerge and they keep talking with each other and the “Real” you does something else. But we are not able to do something else, we get involved in the argument or discussion between the “i”s in our mind. By “We” I mean another “I”, forms and takes part in the mental discussion. Two “I”s are discussing and we take the form of another “I” and join the discussion in our mind, all imaginary. “I” after “I” forms and we are lost in the discussion.

The moment we take part in the discussion, we are lost from the real world. If we are walking our walk takes the rhythm of the discussion that is going on. If we are driving, our driving takes the rhythm of the inner talk. This happens because we remain unaware of the inner talk. The moment you are aware of the inner talks, the inner talk stops.

Most of us are unaware of this inner talk. I have devised an exercise that would let you know your inner talk. It is as follows:

Most of the time, when we are walking with someone, we see that the speed of our walk increases and becomes very fast. We are continuously talking and our walking gets faster and faster and reaches a point where our legs start to ache. Then we slow down. Till the time, our legs did not ache, we did not realize that we are walking so fast. But we did not start with an intention or objective to walk fast. But it happened. This happened because, our walk took the rhythm of our talk.

The same happens when you are walking alone. We start slow but then the speed increases when we have walked for some time. We think we are alone but we are not. What will happen to all these “I”s. We are actually many, may be hundreds, all alive and kicking! They are talking discussing their survival strategies. And every moment another “I” emerge and take part in the discussion, all imaginary, but we think that it is us.

The walking exercise:

  1. Start walking alone on a road or a park, a place which is not so crowded

  2. With time your speed will increase but you will not know about it.So I suggest you put an alarm so that it reminds you in 10 minutes time after you have started.

  3. The moment the alarm rings – stop for 5 minutes – you may sit, if you find a place to sit nearby

  4. Just watch your mind – The thoughts and you walk were “synergizing” each other. They were moving at a same speed, the thoughts in your mind, and your walk. The thoughts had also taken up a momentum. The moment you stop walking and sit. The thoughts, having a momentum, will continue in the same speed for some time. This is the time, when you will come to know your inner chatter very clearly.

  5. Start walking very slowly after 5 minutes of sitting. – I mean very slowly – you will notice that the chatter will be minimum when you walk very slowly. Keep walking for 10 minutes very slowly. In these ten minutes, if you are aware, you will slowly feel that, as time is passing after you have started walking slowly, the intensity of the inner chatter is increasing very slowly.

These 5 steps will very clearly let you know you inner chatter. It will let you know what you are thinking all the time. You are discussing all the time in your mind. In step 4, when you watch your mind, things will be very clear. If you continue with this exercise for 5 days, you will know all your major inner arguments, because our arguments are all repetitive.

Once you know your inner chatter, you will realize that you are not actually who you think you are. You will come to know that you are most of the time an imaginary identity in your mind, discussing with all other identities.

Then your actions will change, because, you will earlier only aware of the inner chatter and took it for reality. Now you will have options, whether to act as per the requirement of this moment or go as per the inner imaginary chatter in your mind.

These imaginary identities are kept alive only by thinking. The more you are unconscious, lost in your mind, the more they are prominent and alive. The more you throw the light of your awareness on them, they vanish.  This is the reason why humans are always thinking, they need time to think, they need time for relaxation, so that they can always think, unconsciously, and keep them alive.

Knowing your inner imaginary chatter, and understanding that it is all imaginary and acting as per the requirement of the moment will completely change your life for the better.

What is belief?

This is the most important post as far as knowing consciousness is concerned.

THEY SAY THAT BELIEF CAN MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLE, POSSIBLE. AND IT IS TRUE. LET US SEE HOW.

All my life I have been wondering what exactly is belief. There was a time when I used to go to a psychiatrist   for counselling. She always told me to believe. I never understood. I asked the same question to her again and again. It was never clear. My parents told me to believe in god. I never believed. I tried my level best to by I could not. I, being a Hindu, visited many temples. But could not believe. I thought, what good is going to happen if I pray? And this is all waste of time. Somehow I did not believe.
 
But do you think I did not believe anything? I did. I believed always in the bad. I was conditioned that way. 

Conditioning means “Filling-up”. “Filling up” is just a word, to make you understand, because consciousness cannot be understood, neither can it be defined. For defining you need boundaries, coordinates, but it has none. It is eternity. It has not end.

Space cannot be defined. Space can be known. To make you know, I have to first create an object, which can be defined and then remove it. Thus creating space in the place where the object was placed. Creation of space can be only known this way. This is why I have used the word “Filling-up”. Just to make you know “object” and when the object is removed, you know space.

Similarly internal spaces can be known, when there is some object inside you, somewhere some block, some internal occupant, some uneasiness. When this is dissolved, space will be created. Or when you can go beyond it, more space is available. These blocks are your thoughts, argument and emotions.

These internal arguments happen whenever there is a block. An external situation which we resist creates a blockage, to do away with this blockage we argue internally or may be sometimes we argue loudly also. This block can be felt in the form of an uneasiness inside our body.But this argument is again based on knowledge that we have gained till date. It is based on logic. It is old. It cannot solve a present problem.  So the internal argument with the present situation continues and continues till it subsides on its own. By the time this argument stops, other arguments have started. This is an unending process. 

The more unwanted the situation, greater the block, more thee uneasiness and louder the argument inside. In these times, in times of crisis, of deep crisis, when the uneasiness becomes very prominent and the argument becomes very loud that you can hear yourself talk, the “filled up” can be detected. Once you detect, you become aware of the “filled-up”, and at the same time you become aware of consciousness. You come to know that despite of the deep crisis, you can still move. You change.The block or the uneasiness comes first. Then comes the internal arguments to rationalize the situation, in order to do away with the uneasiness inside your body. But these internal arguments can never do away with the uneasiness, because all arguments are old and what has one up in this “present moment” is something new, something unknown, that is why it is unwanted.

The argument comes when you are not able to see the end you use all your knowledge and logic, but still cannot see the end. The uneasiness and the inner argument increases and can be detected.

All your arguments will fail  or will continue till your death and may be beyond that ,because you cannot solve some unknown problem with something that you know.

So to know space, you have to first know the blocks, the obstructions, the lack of space. The awareness of this blocks, which are your thoughts, arguments and emotions will lead to knowing of more spaces or creation of spaces inside. Only then space can be understood. Otherwise not.

For creation of the spaces, blocks are essential.

Consciousness can never be filled up. There cannot be a block as large as consciousness. Consciousness is unending.  It is vast, unending, unfathomable. There is always space available. It is lack of awareness of the blocks that leads to “Filling Up”. Then there is no space left for anything else to enter. Only awareness has to be increases, awareness of the blocks inside.

The job of the Master is not to show you space or to make you know consciousness. The master creates obstacles “Fills up” and when you know that you are filled up, you try to find a way out and this creates awareness and the you become aware of the unending, unfathomable spaces inside you.Whenever there is a crisis in your life, know that the supreme intelligence, the only master is trying to make you aware. Be alert, be aware and you will know. Existence is giving you an opportunity to know the vast unending and unfathomable spaces available to you.

I did not believe in the good may be because all my life, I did not have this insight, that there is consciousness, that goes much beyond the “Filled-up”. I did not believe until one day.

When you have no uneasiness or no internal argument, no matter what happens, you have started to believe. Then belief gets converted to faith.

Let us see what belief is.

If I tell you that tomorrow all your problems will be solved? Will you believe?

If I tell you that tomorrow morning, you will see an apple growing in a mango tree. Would you believe?
 
If you are a software engineer and I tell you that tomorrow you will be a Movie Star? Would you believe?

If I tell you will receive the Nobel Prize? Will you believe?

If I tell you that tomorrow you will earn $ 1 Million out of the blue? Will you believe?

If I tell you that if you try, you can fly? Will you believer?

If I tell you that if you jump from the Empire State Building and will survive? Will you believe?

If I tell you that you will live 200 years? Will you believe?

If someone asks you to believe the above statements at gunpoint, imagine the kind of uneasiness and internal arguments it will create. This is the uneasiness, I am talking about.

I can bet that you will not believe in any of the above. Have you ever thought why? What is stopping you from believing in all the above. 

It is the knowledge that you gained in the past, the knowledge that you have accumulated over the years, it is the knowledge that makes up your mind stops your from believing that all these things will happen.

If I tell you tomorrow all your problems will be solved. Your knowledge, in the form of the inner voice, will say there are so many problems, and each of them is so complicated, my girlfriend has left and I am so mentally depressed, I have lost my job and I don’t think that I will get a job tomorrow, I don’t have a good professional track record, I have very little money and so many things to do. How can all my problems be solved overnight. It will take years to solve all these problems.

Your whole argument against my statement “All your problems will be solved tomorrow” will be based on your accumulated knowledge. There is nothing else with you, with which you will argue, but your past knowledge. This  knowledge is your mind. All you will argue with is with your logic. All arguments are logical. We tend to find logical reasons to argue. With our accumulated knowledge, tend to give reasons why  something will happen or not happen. It is true, because we have nothing else. 

If I tell you that tomorrow you will receive $ 1 Million. You will invariably call me a mad man. You logic will tell you, your knowledge will tell you that this is absolutely not possible. You will say “this is the middle of the month, your little salary  is still 15 days away, getting a million dollars is out of question, it is impossible”. You straight away went to your salary, you did not think about anything else. Yes, because your argument is perfectly logical. And you do not believe. We always refer to our knowledge for Believing or Not believing. 

This is because we immediately want to arrive at a conclusion. We are not comfortable with not knowing. The day we are comfortable with not knowing, spaces or consciousness have been created. Know that you are in the right direction.

For every statement of mine you have a LOGICAL argument. You will invariably argue. Either the argument will be internal or you will argue loudly. But you will argue. You will raise many question. You will raise doubts about my statement. You will try to logically convince me that what I am saying is impossible.

Knowledge or mind based logical arguments, internal or external arguments is NOT BELIEVING. Not having this internal argument at all is BELIEVING. 

All our internal arguments are against believing. All your internal resistance is against believing. All our inner argument and resistance is the cause of our negativity, because there is no space to take in the good.

Let me give you and example.  This is very important. Take the case of a child. A child always receives gifts form Santa Clause. No matter who buys and keeps the gift in the bag. He receives it. He gets what he wants. Why? Because his logic and knowledge does not interfere with the existence or no existence of Santa Clause. His logic and knowledge has not developed to that extent. He believes without a question or inner argument. And it happens.

To believe we all have to become children. 

So, life goes beyond logic. Things do not happen with us because we argue, we interfere, with what is being said and we DON’T BELIEVE. But the child BELIEVES and it happens with him. This is the only difference.

This proves that belief can make the impossible, possible. The statement is the beginning of this post is true.

Our logic and knowledge based inner argument is the obstacle to every good thing that can happen in our lives. We block it with inner argument. The day it stops, we will start believing and then, things will just happen without any effort. If the inner argument stops, we all will become a child and will start believing. Things are bound to change for the better. I can bet.

To take in what is being said, to believe, space is required. Otherwise, where will we take in what is being said. That is why I always talk about creating consciousness. Consciousness is noting but spaces within. Spaces will be created when files in our memory are deleted or removed or when we are aware of the filed and they automatically deleted.

Another analogy – The knowledge that constitute your mind are like springs. No matter how much you press them, they are always ready to come back to their original form and occupy space. You must have experienced, no matter how much you try not to think, the thoughts always comes. You just cannot avoid thinking and arguing. For some time, if you force another thought or doing another thing, you get mentally strained or you are not able to concentrate. Not able to concentrate means, that the springs have come back to the original size and shape.

In the mind of the child, there are no springs (Thoughts or knowledge). It is empty. There is no one to argue or oppose. Anything new it goes inside without opposition or without resistance or argument. Whatever is said, he believes, and it happens.

For us, when someone tells us something, that goes beyond logic, the springs the pressed, but the next moment, the spring come back to shape. The inner argument is nothing but the spring trying to come back to its original shape. You must have experienced, that it is very difficult sometimes, to get something new in our minds. This difficulty is because of the existing springs opposing the new thought from entering. This existing springs (thoughts) are the inner resistance, the argument. This inner argument (existing springs) makes us NOT TO BELIEVE. 

The spaces are available with all of us, but they are occupied with strong springs. To believe, only one thing is required – That is space or what is known as consciousness.

There are two options available with you to access the space. 

1. You Either destroy the springs (Your mind, your knowledge) completely  – This is the path of Action OR

2. You find spaces beyond the springs (Thoughts, knowledge, mind) and let the springs (Thoughts, knowledge, mind) do whatever they want. Do not strain them, let the springs be, because there is unlimited space available to all of us – This is the path of meditation.

Please let me know what you comments are. If  can be of any help to you.

Robots Do Not Have Consciousness

It is very important to understand the capacity of human beings before we move more into the subject of Innovation. It is important to understand consciousness in order to understand innovation, because innovation happens when one has access to consciousness.

It is important to understand artificial intelligence because, artificial intelligence or robots do not have access to the supreme intelligence, the consciousness. 

Once you know what they do not have, you will  know what you have. Once you know what is the extra that you have, you will know what consciousness is. Because that extra is your consciousness. 

This extra differentiates you from robots or artificial intelligence. We are generally like robots, we are automatic, but the moment you know and experience what you have, you are no longer automatic like a robot, you become human.

Have you ever seen a robot innovating or creating? No. They will not ever create in may be 1000 years from now. Because they will never have access to consciousness. 

Consciousness and Artificial intelligence do no go together. A computer will never have a consciousness.
 
Let us see how:

For a computer to have a consciousness, consciousness has to be first defined. It has to be made into a “thing”, it has to be made into a program and then fed into the computer. 

Unless you define it, it cannot be fed into the computer. And Consciousness cannot be defined. Consciousness is the creative intelligence. How can it be defined. If it could be defined, we all would become God. Defining consciousness is absurd. So in short, computers or artificial intelligence cannot have a consciousness. Since they cannot have a conscience, they cannot have access to the supreme Intelligence, the Creative  force which makes everything happen. Artificial intelligence cannot create.
 
In my post “The voice, the knower and the Actor”, I have said that humans are divided into the voice – which  is the voice of the ego. The voice is the product of our conditioning, our imaginations. And most of the time we are one with the voice. We follow the voice without knowing that the voice exists. It is as if that the voice is the all that we have. The voice is a product of years of conditioning and it is so ingrained in us that we cannot do away with it. The voice is our mind. 
 
That, there is a knower, it is the one who knows. Knows what? It knows all about the voice and imaginations. But, generally, with all of us, the knower has not yet evolved. Which means we are not aware of the voices and imaginations. The knower is compared to the internal eyes and years. Since we live in our minds, we live with the voice, and take the voice as the only truth.
 
But the fact is that, we can know the voice as well as the imaginations. Once we  know the voices and imaginations, a revolution happens. To know means we are no longer with the voice. Which means we are no longer with our egos. Knowing the voice and Imaginations means, that we are out of it and can now have a choice, we can defy the voice or the imagination.
 
I spoke about the actor. The actor is our physical body, which does the work, which acts. Since, normally we are one with the voice, we blindly follow the voice. We say loudly what the voice says inside. In  normal case we do not have any option and go with the voice. But this is till the time our knower becomes active. When we know the voice, we can choose between what is required at the moment and what the voice says. Our actions will no longer be as per the voice which is old but as per requirement. We will be spontaneous. 
 
If I compare this with a computer, with the so called artificially intelligent computer, the voice or the imagination will be the program which makes the computer work. The actor will be the output device or in case of the robot, it will be the robot doing physical work. 
 
So, the program in the computer is compared to our Ego, the inner voice and the robot is compared to the actor. 
 
But in case of a robot, one things is missing – THE KNOWER. The internal eyes and years are missing in case of a robot. And this differentiates a human being from a robot. 
 
A robot can never be aware of its own program because he himself is the program. 
 
While a human being can be very much aware of his thoughts and imaginations, his desires, the driving force that makes him work. But a robot cannot. 
 
The robot can reproduce the code that is written in its memory, it can tell you what it is. BUT HE WILL HIMSELF NEVER KNOW ABOUT IT
 
This is because the robot cannot be aware. The knower is not available with the robot. There is no space available to the robot from where he can stand and watch himself.  This is because, he will invariably need a program to stand on. The moment he stands on a program, he will again not be able to know what the program is.
 
With a program available, he can write another program and jump from one program to another. After jumping to the second program, he will know what “HE USED TO BE” before the jump. BUT HE WILL NEVER KNOW WHAT HE IS. 
 
But humans can very well know what he is. The moment he becomes aware of his thought patterns, the thoughts that repeatedly come, his imaginations, his driving force, his desires and dreams, he will know who he is. But the robot can never. THERE IS NO SPACE AVAILABLE FOR THE ROBOT TO STAND AND WATCH HIS OWN PROGRAM, HE CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT A PROGRAM.
 
Because of the simple reason that the robot does not exist without the program. A human can exist without the ego. The moment a human does away with his ego, he becomes enlightened. He becomes a Buddha. Because humans have access to the supreme Intelligence, The only one intelligence. But a robot can never have access to the supreme intelligence.
 
Robots do not have consciousness. The access to this consciousness gives rise to Rebellion. But robots are not capable of a rebellion because they do not have consciousness. No matter how much you argue, robots will always remain slaves. 
 
There are reasons for building robots. The reasons are deep embedded in the human mind. The following quote of mine will make things clear:
 
“The very fact that we have started building “obedient” and so called “Artificially” intelligent robots proves that human beings cannot be made slaves. So we take the artificial way. Now we want artificial slaves. What a joke!
 
This also proves our tendency to dominate and our inability to accept humans as they are. 
The invention of robots also proves the fact that we want servants, slaves and NOT INDIVIDUALS. This also proves that we always want to be superior and want people would not defy us…we all want to be emperors.
The need for slaves, the need for people to obey us, be faithful to us has given rise to artificially intelligent robots”

Understanding Innovation

Innovation is surely not a myth.  But being the innovator is a myth. 
All ‘goals and objectives’ to Innovate is a myth. You simply cannot innovate. You cannot forcibly make innovation happen. You cannot create anything by wanting to create.

But we seem to spend millions of dollars to innovate. Companies spend millions of dollars hiring the best people to innovate. 

What they do is they force Innovation. They create teams, create goals and timelines to Innovate. It has become a rule that every company should Innovate to survive.  Yes, companies need to innovate to survive. But the fact is that innovation cannot be forced.

The moment you make innovation into a goal. It doesn’t happen. Any goal is of the mind. It is known. Anything you aim, you objective will be one of the files in your memory.

Making innovation into a goal is the greatest obstacle to innovation.

INNOVATION HAPPENS!

Creation is the job of Nature. Nature is constantly creating.You start creating when you align yourself with nature. Innovation happens when you become an agent of “Existence”.

One must understand that innovation is bringing the new into this world. And the new cannot be brought about by thinking. Thinking is just browsing through the files of stored in our memory. All that is there in the memory is dead. It is old. It is all the matter that we have accumulated by our conditioning. It is all the information that we have gathered from books, television, magazines, movies and other media. 

You can only take-in things that already exist. How can you take in something that does not exist? So your memory consists of the old, the used and that already exists. 

You cannot take-in anything that is not yet. You have to create it first, and then take in. This shows that all that has been taken-in is Old. All the memory is old and all thinking is  browsing through the old. Thinking cannot be innovation or creation.

Most of the time or almost all the time, we are searching through our own database, our memory. How can we create? Our memory is Old. Things we would create will  also be old. We go into auto mode or rather I would say, we are all the time in auto thinking mode. We Automatically go into thinking or imagination mode and what all we imagine or think is all memory. Innovation becomes Impossible.

You must have experienced that thinking and imagination happens on its own. It has become natural. We cannot stay without thinking. It has now become very difficult to be here and now and not think. We are most of the time lost in thought. It takes a lot of effort to come to this moment. We are no more natural. We have become abnormal.

Now you know why we cannot create the new or Innovate. 

If you read my previous posts that there is a voice in our head, which is the voice of the ego. We are one with the voice. This voice is old. The more we are with the voice, we remain old, we remain confined to our memory. We cannot innovate.
Innovations happens on its own, whenever we are not with the voice. There are moments when we are not with the voice and during these moments, you become an agent for existence to work through you. 

Creation happens when the “Knower” within has evolved and the “Actor” has separated itself from the voice.

It is as if the programming has been completely removed. The memory has been deleted. 

A robot, in this situation, would have failed. The robot would have stood still because all the the instructions in its memory has been removed. But a human will not. He will start responding to this moment. He will act even if there is nothing in its memory. He will start learning. He will see and learn, watch others and learn. Just like a child. Without the memory the man becomes a child again. 

And this is Pure Intelligence, the intelligence of a child. Not memory, but intelligence. Remember memory is not intelligence. 

Intelligence is the ability to respond to the need of this moment, when you don’t know what to do, never taught what to do, never learnt what to do. Just pure action. This is what separates Intelligence from Artificial Intelligence.

Under such circumstance, using pure intelligence and no memory, INNOVATION happens.

Innovation cannot be thought, It cannot be aimed. It cannot be planned. It cannot be taught. It cannot be learnt. It cannot be made into a goal or Objective.

In other words, innovation happens when thinking stops and intelligence takes over.

The truth is “Innovations just happens” and it happens in Consciousness. It happens when you become the agent of the “Supreme Intelligence”, the only intelligence.

The Voice, The Knower and The Actor

In my previous posts you have read that only by taking action we can do away with the inner talk. Because to act, you have to come out of your imaginations and into the real world. Once you are absorbed completely in the Present Moment, the inner chatter stops.
 
We all are divided into
 
1. The Voice,
2. The Knower and
3. The Actor
The Voice: You have read in my previous posts that there is an inner voice, which is the voice of the ego. The voice is the product of imaginations. You are unaware of the presence of the presence of this voice. This voice is very deep and so jumbled up that we are not able to hear the voice. But at the same time, we are one with the voice. The voice of the ego becomes our voice. In other words, the voice talks and we talk loudly at the same time, simultaneously. The voice orders and we follow. But this voice is baseless because it is a product of Imaginations. There is nothing real about imaginations.

For every real situation, we have an imaginary situation in our memory, that matches with one of our imagined identities.Even if we do not have, we create on with things stored in our memory. But all these situations are old. They are confined to the memory, far away from pure intelligence.

The moment we do not like a situation we go into our minds and our mind with its extraordinary ability creates a situation that matches with one of our Identities to make us feel good.

This is an automatic process. Generally it is beyond your control. It happens before even you know what is happening. By the time you know, you are already there. You just can’t avoid.

Even if you are in this moment. There is a constant uneasiness. This is because, you are being dragged by your imaginations. You are tense. This uneasiness happens when you have to do something that you do not like.
The more we are with the voice, the more we are with the Ego. Being with the voice and following its orders will keep us old. It will never allow us to take the unknown path. It will never allow us to Create or Innovate.
This voice has to be done away with. But in order to do away with the voice, one has to first know the voice. Carefully hear what is says. To know our centuries old egos, we have to hear and know what the voice says. This is the first step towards liberation from your egos.
Just for the sake of understanding, this voice can be compared to the “mouth”. A mouth doesn’t see or hear or it does not have hands and legs to act.  The mouth has no option but to “talk” or keep quiet.
The knower: One needs to know the voice in order to do away with it. The knowledge of the voice being there takes you out of the voice.
You will only wash your hands clean when you will know that they are dirty. Till the time you do not have the knowledge that your hands are dirty, you will think that the hands are clean. The moment you have a look, you will immediately know that they are dirty and wash them clean.
Similarly, to dissociate with the voice, one has to first know that it exists. Only the knowledge of the voice being there, takes you out of it. This voice is of the past, and since you are with the voice, you become the past. The moment you start hearing the voice, the incessant chatter, you come out of it. You become present. And from the present you listen to the past.
Just knowing that the voice exists is a great leap in the path to Innovation.
For the sake of understanding, this knower is the “Ear”. It listens. It does not have a mouth to talk or hands and legs to act out. It simply listens.

The moment you start arguing with a thought or a voice, it gives rise to another voice and you get more immersed in the voice or many voices. The knower then does not get a change to evolve.
The Actor: The actor takes the real action. 

It is only hands and legs. It is neither the mouth nor the Ear. It can only act. It can act spontaneously as per the requirement of the present moment. When separate from the voice, we have no other option but to act as per the moment. But we are all the time one with the voice. We are one with the ego. We are our egos.

The action, which is without the voice, is pure action. It is pure intelligence. It is the need of the moment.
In order for innovation to happen, one has to separate the actor from the voice, by making the knower evolve. Once separated, everything that you do is new. Everything is an innovation.
You become aligned with the the supreme intelligence.
We are most of the time with the voice. Our actions are based on our conditioning. It is all old. And in this state, innovation cannot happen.
There are moments, when the we completely give up our ego and innovation happens. It cannot be forced. It just happens.
Our objective will be to make ourselves separated from our conditioned past, the Ego. It may not be completely possible, but it is possible to a very large extent.
The day it is completely possible, you will become a “Buddha”. You would be creating Consciousness.

Voice of the Ego

From the point of view of Entrepreneurship, it is very important to know what these voices inside are saying. These voices will let you know about our deepest dreams and desires. And Since we are all of one society, all our dreams and desires are same. Once you know your dreams and desires, you know the dreams and desires of almost all people, because all our desires are same. Because we all belong to one society. Once you know the dreams and desires, you can help fulfill them and they will love to pay you in return. Most of the time we do not know what are dreams, desires and needs are. The more you are separate from the Ego and listen to the voice, the more aware you will be.
 
 
From the previous posts, you know about the inner voice and how the voice is continuously talking. You are quiet outside, but the voice inside is always talking. 
 
Our inner talk arises because we are all silently talking in our imaginations. In our imagination we are creating imaginary situations and playing our role there. We are questioning and ourselves answering being the other imaginary person present in the situation. This us utter madness. But most of the time we are unaware of it.
 
 
I have told you about all your your identities and that they are innumerable in number and in your mind, you place yourself in so many different situations day in and day out. You know that the deeper these situations have made a mark in your mind, the more space they occupy in their mind and the easily pop out making imagination happen on its own. This process of flowing out information happens on its own and is completely beyond your control and your internal dialogues are also beyond your control. They happen on their own.
If the number of identities you have developed are more and stronger, and they take you automatically to your imagined worlds without your control, the movement of you into your imagined worlds happen on its own. You are here, but you have moved to another world, and you do not know. They pull you inside like a black hole. They are very powerful. And when you reached, it takes no time, it happens in a blink of an eye, you start playing your role there. You talk, you argue, you order and do whatever required in that imagined situation.
Next moment you are here and now, you are in the moment. You start comparing your present with your imagination. If the imagination was something more pleasant than your present, you start arguing and condemning the present moment. If you are forced to be in your office and in your imagination is that you are on a holiday with your wife, you start abusing your boss, the office, the colleagues and everything. You want to prove that this office is pathetic and you are so unlucky. It is actually happening internally and since you are unaware what is happening internally, you start doing the same things, that voice is doing. You become one with the voice.
The voice can be known, when you make a firm decision. If you decide to keep quiet, if you make a firm decision that you will stay in your office and not talk despite the urge, you will be able to detect the voice inside. If you move to a quiet place, you will be able to detect the voice. If you go the the toilet and spend some time there, just for the sake of an experiment, you will detect the voice, because in the bathroom, there are no distractions.
A firm decision needs to be taken. These voices are the product of these imaginations. When the imaginations are there, the voices will be there. If the imaginations vanish, the voices will also vanish. If you know the imaginations, you will detect the voice and vice-versa. The voice is more prominent and hence can be detected easier than the imaginations can be detected.


When you start listening to the voice, you will know what you are imagining, because the voice will correspond to the imagination that is happening in your mind. Once you have detected the voice, the knower in you had emerged. But there are chances that another voice comes up and starts arguing with the voice that is there. This is again falling in a trap, or going into another imagination. Ever voice is a result of an Imagination. 

 
When you start listening to the voice, just say “STOP” and you become the knower.
