Full Consciousness, unconscious mind, subconscious brain, Night Dreaming…

First we need to define among the various levels of consciousness:

The Unconscious Mind is the constant stream of thoughts that crosses our mind haphazardly, which we have no control over the process. Basically, the unconscious mind recalls the past, think of the future and prevent us from focusing on the present moment. It is the main terrifying constraint in our inability to refrain our brain from venting out all the thoughts that crowd the brain networks.

The Subconscious Brain is what govern and take control of our current activities. Without the subconscious brain, or automatic activation of our inner brains, accidents will be the norm instead of avoiding risks and calamities.

It captures millions of observations and events per minute while the conscious brain may observe only 40 events and objects. The subconscious is way far ahead of what we think we actually have “seen”: We are seeing the mental image of objects before we recognize the actual object.

For example, in a city crowded with bike riders, very few bike accidents are recorded: The subconscious brain was “trained” to memorize the whole environment and possible risks and engages to take full control of our biking activities while our mind is wandering, and our unconscious mind spreading all kinds of thoughts that are not relevant to the current activities.

Another example, as we land in a foreign city, we quickly feel exhausted: We rely on our senses to capture the environment and our senses are overloaded. It takes a few days for our subconscious brain and memory to assimilate the environment, take control and relieve our senses from tending to the details.

Full Consciousness is the power acquired by training to “disobey” a few of the thousands of orders our unconscious bombard us with every minutes.

For example, “Open your eyes, scratch your nose, what time do you have…”

The main problem is that we are not conscious of our mental agitations that make us confuse reality with thoughts

The difficulty is not the content of the haphazard thoughts, but the links that we attach to them.

Training our consciousness help us to identify the thoughts as just thoughts, transitory mental phenomena, and Not as durable certitudes.

Training our consciousness to Full Consciousness help us to observe the multitude of orders that the unconscious is bombarding us with and to learn to counter a few of the orders and delay the responses at least.

 Full Consciousness says “I am Not simply what I think!”

For example, the following two sentences are not the same:

“My life is sad” and “I am in the mood of thinking that my life is sad”

 Full Consciousness is tantamount of observing the flow of our thoughts, to keep a distance from the flow, observe our thoughts pass by.

There are no way to control our brain from thinking of all kinds of thoughts. As Paul Valery observed “We think that the conscious mind rules, but for sure it cannot governs”

When we reflect, we are not producing any new thought: We are simply engaging in rearranging, cataloguing, and trying to focus on a few thought that are out of our control.

We can take conscious of the tumultuous crowding of our thoughts, take a deep breath and learn to observe the haphazard flow of our thoughts.

Note: Night dreaming re-organizes the unconscious thoughts into a story book that the subconscious brain “memorizes” for later usage.
