Say Hello To The Inner You

The phone rings. You answer and hear someone say, ‘This is the operator. I have a collect call. Will you accept the charges?’

You question ‘Who’s calling?’

The operator replies ‘It’s the INNER YOU.’

You are astounded by her answer. ‘What?’ What do you mean ‘the INNER YOU?’

The operator insists, ‘It’s the INNER YOU. Do you accept the charges?’

‘Yes. I’ll take the call.’

You go on to challenge the caller. ‘Hello. Who is this?!’

A vaguely familiar voice says ’I’m the INNER YOU.’

‘What? You’ve got to be kidding. Is this a prank call?’

‘No, it’s not. I’m the INNER YOU.’

‘Look, I don’t know who this is and I’m going to hang up.’

The voice on the other end says, ‘Listen. I know this may seem strange and I know that you don’t think you know I am and that’s exactly why I’m calling. I’ve tried every possible way to reach you and I just haven’t been able to get through to you until now.’

You pause for a moment and then say, ‘Well, if you are who you say you are then what is the purpose of your call?’

The INNER YOU says, ‘I’m calling to let you know that I’m here and I always have been. I know that you act as though I don’t even exist. You do just about everything imaginable to avoid me. The reason that we don’t connect is because you’re always running and running and running. You’re either talking on the telephone or text messaging or on the computer or watching television or playing video games or going somewhere to do something.’

The INNER YOU continues. ‘I know that you’ve been taught to run.  I know that you don’t think that there is any other way for you to live. I know that you’re afraid of me and I know that you don’t think that you can trust me.’

Finally the INNER YOU concludes the call. ‘I’m calling to let you know that you can do everything you can think of to keep us apart and it’s ultimately up to you. However you should also know that until you make the decision for us to be together, you’re going to be very dissatisfied with your life. You will be unfulfilled and you will always feel like you’re missing something. You will always be looking for something outside yourself.’

‘Think about it. For what reason would you be afraid of me and afraid to trust me? You’ve been trained to do this. I’m the highest aspect of who you are. I can help you in any way you need. I can give you answers. I can offer you other possibilities for your life. Even though it seems like you don’t want to know me or have anything to do with me, I want you to know that I’m here and I always will be. I’m the INNER YOU.’
