The subconscious of conscious- Part III

All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark. -Swami Vivekananda.

So very rightly said and yet we do the same. Swami Vivekananda was a visionary and hence could quote such a statement. He believed in his thought process and set an example for us. Continuing with our journey of re-union we dig further to our thought level. As we were saying whether we really think about what we do or not still remains unanswered. Do we think positive? We are taught since childhood that we should always think positive. Be good to others, which I see again as a way of thinking positive. But what we lack according to me is what exactly it is to think positive. And how do we do that? At what level? We need to introduce such process at at early age of a child to see the miracle happening in his/her later life. Well that could be an altogether different topic to talk about.

Consciously we can sure make an effort to be positive and remain happy. But then subconscious will never leave us if it is unattended. A nice way to know the functions of our two minds is to think of it as a garden. We as gardeners need to plant the seeds of thought in our subconscious mind. These seeds will grow into beautiful flowers in the form of your actions. Thought is action, thought is destiny. We are what we think the whole day.

If we give a mindful effort to the day's thought process, it will be seen that we keep on sowing seeds of thoughts that are so varied. Some thoughts are good, which is a perfect thought process, some are bad while some are wasted thoughts. We should be really aware of what kinds of thoughts our mind is processing. No need to say we are the creators of those. When our mind thinks correctly, when we understand the truth then these thoughts are deposited into our subconscious mind and lead to miraculous results.

To be able to see our thoughts we need to connect to our subconscious which is possible only when our conscious mind is not active. Sure they work together but at different time zones! To get connected with the subconscious we need to relax and slow down from our daily chores. We need to breathe fully and completely. Now some might say "don't we breathe fully, then how are we alive"? But if we see closely our breathing is not deep as it should be. Its halfway many a times. People who have done Yoga at some point of time will know that we are told to breathe deeply many a times during the session, and that's the effort to get connected to the subconscious. Close our conscious world to open for subconscious. The technique recommended by one of my great acquaintances, who is a super-human according to me, is to take five deep breathes after every three to four hours. Try this technique and see if you can at least get closer to your inner world.

Try being aware of what you think for today ...and lets see what is in-store next...

The subconscious of conscious- Part II

2009- a year of economic recession. It had a huge impact on the lives of many. Most of the people were badly hit by this turnaround. But for me and my family it was not just that but beyond. We had to deal with the major illness in the family. am not telling my doleful story, but this situation led me to read more and more about the happenings around. Time was just not with us.

As one situation in life opens the door to another..good or bad, it happened the same in my case. To untangle the rope of events I kept reading to get the answers for my queries. Not only spiritual extracts but the science supporting the cause. This led me to know about the Big boss I mentioned earlier. Yes, and that plays very important role for sure. The reading made it clear that the thought process holds the key to results we see in life. Its all about being right-minded.

In our daily lives we are not even aware whether we are right-minded or not. We just don't have time for such fancy stuff. But let me assure one thing...being right-minded means a perfect way to success in life. Not only spiritual but materialistic too. We confess that we are not at all wrong-minded, but are we not really? Do we take a little time daily to analyze our mind at all? Do we sit quietly to see whether we are on right path or not? No, we don't. Things just happen around and we get caught up in that saying we are busy. Yes, being busy, earning money, exercising is all a part of life. But do we ever think about it?

We do things consciously, but what's important is we do it subconsciously. Meaning channelize the thought process and see the results. Conscious mind is like a shallow stream of water body which does not hold much beneath. But subconscious when active is unfathomable. It has all the riches, all the power to transform our lives, only if we know how? Some might think it as spiritual and absolutely not necessary when we are young. As we have the image that thinking about such things makes us old. Again a thought pattern we believe to be so. But on the contrary I would say sooner the better. If we are aware of our two minds and their working pattern better are the chances of transforming our life and enjoying it.

Lets see how in the coming post...
