“Mind”, “Beyond the Mind” and “Innovation”

The mind is nothing but a collection of “Objects” and “Language”. Objects include everything that make up this world, including humans. Language is used to label or define the objects. Objects and their labels and their relation with each other forms “Knowledge”.

My friend is also an object and I have labelled him with his name and related him to me with some language. Unfortunately and unknowingly “I” (Myself) am also a part of my mind, and I have been labelled with a name and related to other objects (including other humans) using language. This relation is a part of my knowledge. So, we come to this conclusion that, objects are real and present in the world outside but the relations are nothing more than fiction which we take is as the truth and these fictional relationships are a cause of ultimate misery of human beings. We take these fictional, language based relationships to be the truth. This is a different topic but it was required in order to explain the mind. Since the objects all over the world are same, the relationships are same, no matter what the language is used, the mind of all the people across the world is the same. It is a collective mind.

If I say the word “Television”, the language being a part of my mind, immediately brings the picture of television in front of me. If I show the picture of a television without using any label or language, the world “television” come to my mind.  This we all know.

Now if I say the word “ksjuojanoihfdaoidh”, since this is a “label” you have not known, the mind is not able to come up with a picture of the said word. Since this is not a code or any kind of encryption, even if you browse through the dictionaries of all the languages of this world, you will not be able to come up with the “object” that is related to the said word. Had you been using a computer for searching, it would have returned “Not found”, it means that it is not a part of its database. If you are searching using Google, it would suggest the nearest known “label” but will not be able to search the picture related to the said word. Your mind will not be able to come up with something related to the given word. The mind will come to a stand still.

But at the same time, since the given word means absolutely nothing – or the given world cannot be used to label any available object, it gives you utter freedom to CREATE ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING ABSTRACT  WITH THIS GIVEN WORD. This  is innovation. This is a process of going beyond the mind. This also proves that there is a space that is beyond the human mind, and this is the space of creativity. This is the space we we need to be in order to continuously innovate.

What I did here is – I created an abstract goal – a goal that cannot be understood by or solved by the human mind. In the process, innovation happened.

This capacity of coming up with absolutely anything abstract is a UNIQUE ABILITY OF HUMAN BEINGS. Innovation is a capability of humans beings and not of computers, no matter how powerful or artificially intelligent the machine is.

Obstacles Created by the Ego

In the next few posts we will see how the Ego creates hurdles in the path to innovation and Creativity.
 
All these hurdles are branches of the major hurdle the Ego. But once I tell you how they impede your  movement towards creativity, you will  know when the hurdles come up. You will be able to relate.
 
The Hurdles Created by the Ego are:
  1. Conditioning
  2. Fear of Failure
  3. Risk
  4. Role of Society
  5. Indecisiveness
  6. Self Consciousness
  7. Trying to be someone else
In my next few posts how ego crates the above mentioned problems and how to get rid of them.
 

Artificial Intelligence is a Myth

Artificial Intelligence is a not possible. It is a myth. 

If it is intelligence it cannot be artificial and if it is artificial, it is a copy, it cannot be Intelligence at all. 

We are all crazy people. We make thinking and creativity go together as “Creative Thinking” and we make a Intelligence and Artificial go together as “Artificial Intelligence”.

Intelligence cannot be artificial. 

There is only one intelligence. It is the same intelligence that makes your heart beat, that makes the earth rotate in its axis and revolve around the sun. It is the same intelligence that makes millions of cells in your body perform their functions. 

It is the same intelligence that makes all the people in the world look different.

 It is the same intelligence that makes the rivers flow. It is the same intelligence that creates beautiful flowers, forests, trees, oceans. It is the same intelligence that makes clouds float in the sky.

You say it is your body. But is it really your body? Are you making your heart beat? Are you in control of your breathing? You cannot control your breathing. You cannot hold it for long. When we have a wound, the wound heals automatically. Medicines are there only to accelerate the process. They just act as catalysts. Sometimes when some illness goes out of hand, medicines don’t work. Every second millions of cells are forming and other cells are getting destroyed. Every single cell in the body is performing its function without fail. 

There are millions of life forms, insects, bacteria, etc etc., performing their function.

Tell me, are you in control of these activities? NO.

Then who is? If you are not in control of these activities, then something else is definitely in control. Otherwise how are these things happening? It is for sure that there is an intelligence far superior than ours.

We call ourselves intelligent beings. But we are not intelligent. 

Being intelligent is also a myth. 

We are so foolish that we compare our intelligence with each other as if we own it. As if the existence has distributed intelligence unequally among all of us. 

It is utter foolishness. It cannot be.

Because the Intelligence is not yours. The intelligence is one.

You cannot gather intelligence or grow intelligence. You cannot practice or cultivate intelligence. 

It already exists and it is not separate. It does not belong to you or any one of us.

It is the Creation. There is only one intelligence and that is Creation. There is no creator. But Creation is the Intelligence. 

Creation is continuously creating. There is not a single moment when creation has stopped creating. The process is continuously on. Creation does not get tired. There must be some energy, some unending energy that is making all of it happen, continuously without fail.

The very fact that we have evolved over billions of years proves that creation is in the process of creating. Not only us. How life started on earth and what is it today tells us that nature or creation is in the process of continuous creation. If you read a Pre-historic book, you will know what was earth billions of years ago and what it is today.

When humans were not there, some million years ago, nature was still in the process of creation. There was no human intervention was still things were moving. There was surely some intelligence at work. 

This is the only intelligence available. You cannot add an adjective to this intelligence. It is just there. 

But it is not yours. You are a nobody. Never say that you are very intelligent. I know you can very quickly browse through the files stored in your memory but this process of browsing is not Intelligence. It is thinking. It is old. It is of the past. It is your accumulated past. And you think that it is all that is there. The content in your memory and your ability to browse though it, perform permutation and combination makes you think that you are Intelligent. But this is again, not Intelligence. 

There is only one creator, the Creation. The intelligence is the intelligence of  Creation and there is no other. 

You shall be able to create, the moment you become aligned with Creation. You start Creating when you have become an agent of Creation. You start creating when you have kept your mind aside and have started doing what creation wants you to do.

You start creating when the Intelligence has started using you as a medium. It is as if your mind does not work any longer. You do the physical work using the Intelligence of Creation. The Intelligence uses your physical presence in this earth to accomplish something to create something. Your mind is removed and gets filled up with the one and only Intelligence.

You will never know what creation wants you to create. You will know when it has been created. Not before that.

Understanding this is the first step towards creativity.

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.

Creative Thinking’ is a Myth

We always use the words Creative and Thinking together as “Creative Thinking”. But both these words cannot be used together.

If you are creative, you cannot be thinking and if you are thinking then creativity is not possible. 

Let us see how.
I would define thinking as ‘searching our own memory’. 

We have been collecting information since our birth and all of them is stored in our memory. Whenever we start to think, we browse through the files stored in our memory.
All these information stored is old. All the inputs are based on the information the society gave us with the help of books, magazines, websites, television and through many other media. These files are stored in the memory, and the moment we start thinking, we browse through these old files. You memory cannot give you anything new. It is all old information.
Please understand that thinking cannot give you anything new. If you think that you can think and innovate, you would be reinventing the wheel again and again.
All your goals in life, your aspirations, dreams, desires and plans are of the old, because they are they belong to the memory. You want to become a pilot because you know that being a pilot is a profession and you aim for it. You want to become a computer scientist because you know that if you want and move in the right direction, there is a possibility. Both a pilot and computer scientist are part of your memory and you choose your goals based on what you know.
Anything that you “try” to do is based on your past  knowledge. You cannot try doing something that you do not know. You have an objective in life and you start trying to achieve it, then you are directed towards the past. You point backwards. You always point towards something that you know.
You think before you attempt anything. All your thinking is based on your past knowledge. So you always attempt to do things that you have known. It means that it already exists and you are having the knowledge of it.
You cannot imagine something that you do not know. Imagination is again thinking. You only imagine things and situations that you know, that is in your memory. 

Just for an experiment, close your eyes and sit for 10 minutes. You will see, all your imaginations are events and situations of the past.

Our thinking and Imagining is confined to the knowledge gained in your past. Thinking and imagining is confined to memory.

When you try thinking harder, you very intensely search through the files in your memory.
It is like you meet someone and you cannot remember his name. You think harder to remember. You are doing nothing but searching through your own memory in detail.

So your mind consists of things of the past. The mind can give you nothing new. The mind is not able to innovate or create. The Mind cannot be creative.

To Create or to Innovate you have to keep the Mind aside, you have to separate yourself from the continuous chatter of your mind. This is the first step.

Please read my post ‘Ego – The Greatest Obstacle to Creativity and Innovation’ to better understand this post

Only Action Stops the Inner chattering



Action: The only way to stop the Inner chattering

To act, a person needs to be here and now, because any action requires your physical presence. You cannot act in your imagined worlds. Though you may dwell in your imagined worlds, but to act you have to come back home.


We love to dwell in our imagined worlds because it is a world created by us.


You may be mentally present in another continent or driving a Ferrari, but to act you have to be present in the place where you are. 


So, action is only one thing that can bring you in the current moment, Leaving your imaginations behind. Action is another way of pivoting yourself to the present moment making the imaginations and inner talk irrelevant. Otherwise these imagination and talks become a massive hurdle to anything new that you do.


When you are into action, you do not carry your ego with you. The ego is old. It is a product of conditioning, a product of knowledge. Action brings our the new. 


Since you do not have your ego, the voice, which is the voice of the ego, is no longer there. You are no longer your ego you become the action.  Action only can liberate you from your conditioned past and make space for the new to take over.

Link

I intent to connect innovation and Creativity with spirituality. Creativity is about creating something new, creating something which does not exist as on date. 

Anything new can be created only when the old has been done away with. 

All our knowledge of the past and our thinking is based on our knowledge so all our thinking is of the past. So nothing new can be created by thinking. 

Innovation and creativity HAPPENS. It cannot be forced or thought about.

It happens when all the Old has been thrown out of our mind. The moment our minds are clear of the old. The new has no option but to fill our minds. This happens happens in its own accord. Nothing needs to be done. 

Your only job is to do away with the old, the rest happens on its own. You need not target to create something new. Whatever you target will be mind based, will be old. The new happens. The new is always at your doorstep, only you have to allow the new to enter. You have to just open the door.

Our only job is to understand our minds. Once understood, we are out of it, because when you understand, you will be very clearly be able to see it. Whenever the mind talks, you will be able to hear it clearly and relate. Once you watch your mind, you are not “it”. 

To see the past you have to be in the present. Being in the present is doing away with the past. The present is the new. Present is creation. It is like standing on the hill top and looking at the valley.
 
I am trying start from the very basics, which will not be taught in any B-School. There will be many obstacles but according to me there is one major obstacle, which is your Ego. 

To do anything new, one has to first do away with the ego.  The ego is old, it is the product of conditioning. To do away with the ego, one has to first understand the ego. If you understand your ego well, you can be a very very successful entrepreneur, and not only and entrepreneur, you can become anything you wish to, the whole sky will be yours to fly. Let us try and understand the Ego.
Understanding the Ego:

When a child is born, his mind is blank. It is space. There is no difference between the mind of a child and outer space. It contains nothing. I don’t know if there is anything the new born child carries with himself from his previous life. So I am not commenting on that. Let us assume that the mind of a child is blank.
 
Slowly as the child grows up, the space gets filled up with information. The mind has a capacity to store huge amount of information, it is called memory. As the child grows up, he learns. He learns from the society. He starts learning from his parents who are also a part of the society. Besides the society, there a lot of information that the child keeps taking in by himself.

Role of Society in the Development of the Ego:
 
Society consists of yourself, your parents, friends, school mates, teachers, the shopkeeper and everyone you can think about.

The society has certain rules. These rules are not new, they are as old as our civilization. 

The society had defined the good and the bad, right and the wrong. 

Society has drawn lines, or rather I should say lanes. Just like lanes on the road and you have to follow these lanes.
The moment you deviate, you will be fined. Fined by the society. 

So by the time you have grown up, you have learned the rules, and the moment you have learned, you are a part of the society. 

The society with these rules wants to have you as a part of it. The society is afraid, that in case you are not a part of society, you might be a problem for them. 

With these rules the society keeps you in control. The society keeps you in fear and you are afraid to change lanes.
 
The society believes in defining everything.  

The Society knows that only by definition and making people adhere to these definition people can be kept in control. 


The society has defined your profession, the society has defined you personal life. 


And anything beyond this definition is felony. The society will not accept you if you flout the rules and you will be condemned. People will look at you with suspicious eyes and you will be left alone. 


This is because all other people who have been following the rules become a team, they become the crowd and you are left alone if you dare to deviate. If you flout they make you an outcast. So everyone wants to be a part of the crowd, no one wants to be alone or to be declared an outcast. 


That is why people are not ready to change lanes. It creates fear. The fear is only of “alone-ness” and nothing else. It is the fear that no one will come to you support. It requires enormous amount of courage to flout these rules.


But you have to flout them in order to be different, in order to be new. Because the society is old.


The society is mostly responsible for development of our ego because day in and day out we are following the rules set by the society. We know these rules by heart and never flout. These rules are every day and every hour being injected in our mind and it is bound to create the ego. This is why people in the same society have the similar egos. Having similar egos they all have all the same identities that have developed with time. So they are all friends, they belong to the same clan, they form a crowd.


Role of the Child Himself:
 
The child also fill up his minds with information. 

When the same information is being input into the mind again and again, it becomes prominent. This is conditioning.


Child initially gets attached to his mother and when he is not able to see his mother he starts crying. 


The child gets attached to his home and when away from home he starts crying. 


You must have noticed that a child is not able to stay in a place other than his home for a long time. He wants to go home. 


The child gets attached to his family members and when some guests come to visit you house, the child starts crying. He cries because there is a change. There are new members and this is not tolerated. It does not go with what happens usually. The world “usually” is very important. Whatever happens “usually”  becomes prominent and leads to conditioning and formation of the Ego. And here the guests are “usually” not there.
 
When a child starts going to school, he starts crying because it is a new place, there are new people which is again a matter of concern for the child. He was so attached to his parents and his home and now he sees them no one. You must have noticed that children are so happy when they are on the way home from school. When they go home they get what “usually” happens. 

This is how when the same inputs are repeated again and again, it makes a mark in the mind and we cannot imagine or think beyond the mark, because this mark becomes our memory and add to our knowledge. 


The child knows nothing but his home and his parents. This knowledge tells the child that he belongs to the house and his parents. His knowledge gets confined only to his parents and his house, because there has been no other repeated input of information. Anything other than his home and parents is new to him. He is afraid of the new place, the school. He does not know what to do or talk. He does not have his savior, his mother, with him and he feels insecure. This newness becomes a matter of concern for the child and he starts crying. For the child the situation goes out of control.


The same thing happens to us when we go out to do something new. Something that no one has done before. For us to, the situation goes out of control. Our savior in this case is the outcome or the result. When something new is being done, the outcome is unknown and it becomes a matter of mental tension. This is why we avoid doing new things and thus fail to innovate.
When the child starts crying, know that he has developed an Identity. 

We do not cry since we are grown-ups. We keep doing the old, the “known”.

His identity is – “himself in his house with his parents”. He defines himself in his mind as ONLY “the son of his parents”. 

Our Identity is whatever we are till date. If we are a lawyer, we develop an identity as a lawyer. If we are an engineer, we develop our Identity as an engineer and we resist any change.

In the initial few days, wherever he is in school, he is physically present in school but since his mind knows only his home and his parents, and there has been no repeated inputs from his school environment, his mind imagines only his house. 

The mind is capable of imagining only the house and his parents. This shows that our mind is capable of imagining only what it knows and nothing more. The imagination is confined to the memory and memory consists of only knowledge. 

We cannot imagine anything that we have not learned. We have programmed ourselves. We cannot imagine anything that is not us. 

This is our greatest hurdle.

Imagination that is not confined to the memory is divine. 
But it is very rare.
He starts imagining the house, because his imagination is based on his knowledge and he knows only his house and parents. But in reality he is in school, he sees the teacher and hear her voice. The moment he knows that in reality he is in school, he starts crying. Crying because, the inputs that are coming from the school environment are being blocked by the memory of the child consisting of the his house and parents.  This crying continues till inputs to his brain, from the school environment is repeated again and again and he develops another identity of his, that is, “the child in school with his teacher and other children” – he starts defining himself as a student. Now he has two identities – child at home, with parents, and child in school with other children. The other children become known faces and adds to his memory with time. The child after spending some time in school has two identities. First, the child in his house, with his parents and second, the child in school, as a student with other children and teachers.
I have used the example of the child because when he starts going to school, he has only one identity. It is easier to explain. When we grow up, depending on what kind of inputs are repeated we develop other identities. We develop hundreds of identities depending on the kind of inputs our mind was injected with.
“The ego is the sum of all these identities that we have developed in the course of our lives till date. The development of the ego is called conditioning”.

Conditioning is the Greatest Hurdle to Innovation
Role of Knowledge:
Knowledge is another major factor responsible for the development of the ego. All knowledge also comes from the society. 

All knowledge from books, magazines, television  and all other media is responsible. 

For example, if you read about a big, stylish expensive car again and again, you will start imagining yourself driving that car again and again. The more you imagine, stronger this identity of you driving this car becomes. Then you are not happy with any car other than this car. You will despise the car you drive. Because driving your car and your imagination of you driving this big stylish car clash and you are more with your imagination. This becomes a cause of your unhappiness and you long for this car and eventually end up buying this car. You become happy. It was nothing, just the realization of one of your identities.

You forget that this was not the end of you unhappiness. You have, up to this date, developed hundreds of Identities and are continuously developing Identities.

By the time we have grown up, we have developed so many identities that it becomes very difficult to accept other identities or other situations that keep coming in the course of our lives. Different situations are bound to come, because it is the very law of nature. Our uneasiness increases day by day and you must have noticed, almost all of us are unhappy most of the time.

The Role of an Entrepreneur is to “Temporarily” put an end to our unhappiness.
Of all the identities, we are more attached to few of them depending on the number of time the information injection was repeated, depending on the number of times a similar situation was repeated. And these become the major identity, others are minor. 

The major identities offer maximum resistance when these identities are in the verge of changing or getting modified. 

Most of the time we are major identities. No matter what we do, in our imagination, we are our major Identities.

We believe that we are this major identity and would die but not be anything else. But the sad part is, this is all imagination. All imaginations are false and all our egos are false.
We may happily shift identities from one identity to another, but anything new his resisted. 

If anything makes us happy understand that the current situation in which we are in, has matched with one of the identities that we have developed in the course of our life till date – The situation is  termed as “Good” and anything that does not match with one of these identities is termed and “Bad” and makes us unhappy. 

We start labeling things depending on whether it matches with one of our identities or not.
Identities keep forming from time to time as we keep adding knowledge. These identities are so high in number that they are all jumbled up and distinguishing them becomes almost impossible for us. 

But these identities are not dead or have dissolved. They very much exist. But we do not know that they exist. All these identities are the basis of  our desires. 

Your desires are nothing but the gap between your real identity, your identity here and now and your imagined identity. 

The more identities you have, greater the more the number of desires. It is very complex. None of the desires die they always remain dormant and are become alive whenever this particular identity is invoked.

Fulfillment of desires are nothing but the actualization of the imaginary identities. You see an advertisement of a beautiful car. You start imagining again and again that you are driving that car. An identity forms – the identity is “you as the owner of the car”.  This identity adds to your collection of identities. You may be doing other things, and other identities are also forming, but the identity that you own that particular car also exists. It gets jumbled up with other identities, it gets lost inside your head, but it is still there. The moment you see that car, your memory is invoked, and that identity again comes into the forefront. When you drive your car, you are not happy because because, you have already developed another identity with that particular car. No identity dies. All of them are stored in your head and constitute your mind. Every identity is one desire that stays in your mind, and stats till the imaginary identity is realized. Identity is realized is same as the fulfillment of desire.
Throughout the day, depending on situations that come up externally, these identities are invoked. There is an identity associated with every external situation and it comes up. When you are doing nothing, your major identity is invoked. So, you never see reality completely. Your reality is marred with your imaginations, with  your desires.
Since there are so many identities and all jumbled up that it is almost impossible to remember or know them separately. We do not know them but they keep functioning. We become unconscious of the presence of these identities and we get merged with our identities that become our identities. We become our egos. We become old because the ego consists of knowledge and knowledge is of the past. Any new situation, that makes us anything else other than those that were developed over the years, is resisted. When we are forced, we go mad, because our label is being taken out and thrown away. Then we will belong to nowhere, no part of any society, no group and will be thrown into the unknown sea maybe. And this will not be tolerated. We are ready to kill anyone who would force us to be anything else, because if we are not one of the identities that we have developed, we are no one. Anyone who creates a situation that would snatch away our labels, become our enemy. The person who tries to destroy our major ego, our dwelling place, become our greatest enemy. We are foolish enough to take all these identities as the truth.
We most of the time dwell in our egos. We dwell in the imaginary world which gives us the same identity as our major ego. Any new situation, we start imagining the situation which gives us the same identity as our major ego. So at any point of time, there are two or more worlds for us – One, the current situation, which is new and the other situation, which is imaginary, which gives us the identity of our major ego. 

You  may have noticed that whenever we do not like a situation, we start talking about something else, start imagining something else. We start imagining the situation or start talking about a situation that makes us who we think we are or that makes us our major ego. 

Maybe there are more imaginary worlds. But there is only one real world, that is the current situation. 

The moment this happens we are split. We are split between these worlds. We divide our time between these imaginary worlds and the real world. If your major identity is very strong, you spend maximum time imagining yourself in the situation which gives you your major identity. You are physically absent from the current real situation.
If you are completely mad you are all the time dwelling in your imaginations and you are completely unaware of the current real situation. Then you are physically present in your current situation but your speech is about some other imaginary situation. Since you are unaware of your current situation you start talking out loud and people start calling you mad. But if you have some amount of sanity left in you, you would keep quiet but your inner voice talks.
The inner voice then starts talking. With the imaginations in mind, whenever you are in the current situation, you argue with it, call it bad , you hate it and you want to run away from it. The inner voice  starts comparing the current situation with the imaginary situations. The present situation becomes a burden because it is real and you cannot do away with it. You want to imagine more and more and your are being again and again pulled back to the current situation. Your argument continues till the current situation changes. While you are in your imaginary situation, you are feeling good, you do everything that you would be doing if you were actually there, but in your mind. You talk to the imaginary people who are present in your imagination, you scream, you walk, you dance. Everything mentally with the help of your inner voice. Externally you are quiet but, internally you are continuously talking. You are shifting from one imagination to the other and you internal dialogue changes and goes according to the imaginary situation.
You, most of the time dwell in your imaginary situation being your imaginary identity. Being the imaginary identity you play your role in your imaginary world and at the same time condemn, complaint about and criticize the current situation. You are, most of the time, your major identity, which is your ego and your talk from your imagination becomes the internal voice in your head. This is nothing but the voice of your ego, who is constantly talking. The dialogue mainly consists of arguing, commenting, condemning, guiding and Instructing. I have told you before that we divide our time among the current real situation and the various imaginations that come up. 

Whenever we are in a situation that is labelled as “bad” we tend to argue and whenever we are in our imaginary worlds, we play our role there, whatever may be the identity in that particular imagination, we play that role in our minds. We do everything that we would do if the imaginary situation was true, but only in our minds. As we keep shifting from one identity to another, the situation changes and our dialogue changes. Imagine how split we are and I do not know how we are surviving  with so many identities. It is certainly a disease.

This voice is baseless and away from truth because it is a product of imaginations. 

Since we are one with this voice our actions become baseless  and we keep making mistakes again and again. If you are more with your ego, your action reduces, you become lethargic, because you are most of the away from where you are. How can you act? You can only act when you are completely present where you are. If you not act as per the situation, this will surely go out of control and you will end up making a blunder. 

Your life gets better and better with reduction in your imaginations. When the imaginations vanish, the inner talk stops. And one day when your ego is no longer there, you are enlightened. You arrive home. Wherever you are, it becomes your home.
As there are so many identities and all are entangled and jumbled up, we have lost track of them. But invariably the are present. They become a part of your mind. 

Similarly we have no track of all the dialogues associated with every identity of ours. 

But they are very much there. This voice becomes our guide. 

Since we are unaware of it, we follow the voice religiously. What the voice says we say, being merged with it. When the voice argues we argue, when the voice criticizes we criticize and when the voice condemns we condemn, a situation.  When the voice instructs us to act, we act. We become a slave to the voice and we are unaware of our slavery.

Awareness is the way to do away with this voice.
