That little voice that that goes on incessantly in your head…

A sense of identity arise from the inner chatter that goes on constantly within hour head. Most Eastern spiritual traditions have devised practices to observe, channel and stop this inner chatter, so as to lead to a different perception of reality. Albeit less known, similar practices have also been developed and practiced for century within Christianity. Regardless of one´s referring spiritual tradition, and drawing from two spiritual systems that could not look more different between each other, I argue that by being able to stop our continuous talking to ourselves (something that is very likely happening right now to whoever is reading these lines) a common ground can be found.
