There are many theories that try to explain how and why we as human beings do things the way we do. Some of these theories include the ‘Empowerment Theory’, the ‘Authority Theory’, ‘Agavioral Theory’. While these theories are critical in explaining human behaviour, we can also use them as a tool to reveal and understand our own minds. The best way to convey something is not by example, but by example – the ideas here are intended to help with critically thinking about some of the more pervasive and common ideas that pervade much of our thinking and beliefs.
Our minds are made up from a combination of living environments, influences, expectations, learnings, experiences, dreams, and most of all, the filtering and examining of information that comes our way. Each one of our minds is directed somewhat by ‘hard wired’, pre-established rules and behaviors. But just like all of our natural biological functions, our minds could be taken out of balance. For example, all of our cognitive processes and emotional processes are guided by our subconscious mind – that part of our mind that instead of filtering information and processing it in a more conscious manner is far more likely to soak up excessive and unnecessary information and stores it as a form of instinctual responses. For example we don’t consciously think about kudapoker hungry, we automatically pick it up in our subconscious mind!
By understanding these fundamental functions and how they operate within our minds, we also come to understand how the subconscious mind works over the course of time to create our particular reality. And as human thought is so involved with our minds, we feel that what we think and believe is also directed unconsciously. We feel that we are aware and more conscious, but the self- conficial process of thinking as we do, holds us back and keeps us from imagining and comprehending what our very essence may be.
Following are some statements that I believe are true and can be used to reveal and understand our own minds and how it functions. Pay attention as you read them, and if you find them to be true in your experiences.
“Your subconscious mind makes no difference between what is definitely true and what is definitely false; it applies the same principles to both. The subjective thoughts and introspection held behind any action are the spiritual subjects underlying the physical phenomena of life, so the awareness with which you conceive and judge things is spirit.”
This is a statement that has a profound effect on our understanding of the processes of the subconscious mind and is perhaps possibly one of the key points of a theory of the brain. I believe that it is true, and I believe that this important point has been covered adequately in all of the teachings regarding the subconscious mind. Here is an example of how people are in fact misled and think that they are in control of their lives and that they can become more effective and greater in using the greatest of all Chronic Diseases. Much of our inner power (god power, non-physical) is hidden within us. We need but put aside our physical troubles to uncover the true power of the human mind. Reality is much more important than riches and truth. The importance of the subconscious mind has been denied for millions of years and is important to explore and likewise develop:
“If you know not how to overcome obstacles you will almost certainly fail. To have strength without knowing how to find it is meaningless. If you desire to be strong in all the virtues and temperaments, your mind, like a tree, should reflect an beauty that will not be forgotten by you.”
This is yet another statement which we tend to forget, and it is important that much of our knowledge be digested and assimilated.
“Desire that which is self-willed, spontaneous, original, bursting forth with originality, notAfter the fashion of others, not copied or copied but insteadRE inauguraland therefore original.Devolved, molded, copied, shaped by others, and compared with others, is a poor state, flat, stupid, and outwardly72 twinkling wonder.”
The importance of the subconscious mind can therefore be understood more clearly than described in the above statement. The subconscious mind not only effect the life we lead, it is in fact a great part of the manifestation of the person.
How we manifest as people, and how we change as we continue to grow through out our lives, is now more fundamentally understood than ever been. We can choose to use the knowledge that is given to us and do what we want to enjoy our lives. We can have the responsibility of changing our lives, and empowering ourselves in order to become happy and successful. We have the opportunity to become extremely effective and become competent members of our environment because we are in a much more powerful state of our lives today than up to this point. The future is to be enjoyed, and the past will no longer be forgotten.
