How to Ignore the Maniac Inside Your Head
You are living with a maniac inside your head day in and day out. We call it the egoic voice. You can hear it in the form of screaming, or jealousy, depression, violence, clinging, and generally over-reaction. The result of that is confusion, unhappiness, lack of well-being and frustration.

If you understand the process of the egoic voice, you can begin to free yourself from its grip. Learn some strategies to deal with your egoic voice.
