However, when your Chattering Mind is unconsciously Attaching to the experiences you Like, Resisting the experiences you Dislike, and Checking Out during the experiences that cause Indifference, you are unknowingly solidifying a small, solid-feeling sense of self.
Like, Dislike and Indifference are also the starting point for all of your emotions.
When you are unconsciously lost in emotions, they tend to reinforce the small sense of the Chattering Mind. And being lost in the small self is uncomfortable at best and painful at worst.
Seeing this more clearly will give you a greater understanding of your emotions, allowing you to have a brave and courageous relationship with them.
And beginning to have a brave and courageous relationship with your emotions will lead you closer to answering, “Who am I really?”
