You'll see these voices are not yourself, but you might have figured this out already.
It's just ego turning on itself.
To lose ego is to lose shizophrenia with it. Such a diffusion of the soul. I am sorry for your suffering.
One should love it when ego is fighting itself. Now you know how you should feel when these voices occur. The problem most people have is that they
don't know how to feel about it, and they often think themselves is the problem, but that is when ego still has a part of you. You identify yourself
with it and that way it seems it is you who causes these voices.
On clearing confusion!

Not really sure I agree you are clearing confusion. You may, in fact, be increasing it, or at the least stirring a pot of confusion, for ego can
definitely be seen as part of self. It is, in fact, what distinguishes self, from someone else. I know, I know there's a lot of this stuff that ego
is the problem, but I think this is partly codespeak, especially the kind of codespeak that there is a lot of around here, because there's just a
whole lot that can't just come out and be said, isn't there, partly bc of those T&C's, especially when you just can't say what you really want to

This is a very positive thread, in the sense that you state this, as thought it is an "obvious" truth, the truth and nothing else but the truth.
But as "new age" seeming as your point of view is, it actually represents quite a bit that is antithetical to new age anything. Because part of new
ageism is supposed to be about the truth being relative, as in you have one and I have one, isn't it? Just like you have your own ego, which also,
by the way is part of asserting truth, and I, and anyone else (for that matter) has their's. Science has its own approach, religion its own
approach, and psychiatry its own approach. And, at least I thought (but obviously must be mistaken here, at least) that part of the new age
philosophy was that these things really reaffirm each other, and that the old paradigm, shall we say, only served to divide and conquer all of
Having put it that way, I find this thread unusual for you having read most of your others, because it really is not all that positive. Equating
things that may not belong together at all, (hearing voices, ego and schizophrenia) and then calling it clearing up confusion can really only increase
