We don’t think about most of the things that we do. We don’t think about walking, we just do it. Once we have learnt to ride a bike or drive a car, that too seems automatic. At first it’s hard, we have to try again and again to get it right, but once we have it, the subconscious takes over and it’s easy.
I read a lot of stuff about the ‘inner self’ and most of it is garbage. Your inner self or sub-conscious mind tries to help you, but it doesn’t always get it right. It tries to protect you from harm and help you survive. Your survival is it’s primary aim, it’s prime directive. So how do you have a quiet word with your inner self when it’s getting it wrong and making you feel quite anxious? When it’s giving you butterflies in your stomach, making stomach acid, making you feel panicky about that interview. Making your pulse race at the very sight of a hypodermic or worse still blood!
