Is Your Life A Coloring Book?

One of the most confusing things about being human is our conscious mind.

We have this idea that our conscious mind is in control.

Plenty of metaphors have our conscious minds as the "captain" of the ship, while our "unconscious" or "subconscious" is like a powerful child that takes commands from our captain-conscious.

But in reality, it's not so simple.

Especially when they hook people up to machines and measure how things happen.

Scientist estimate that up to 95% of the time, our conscious mind is a LAGGING entity.

Meaning our mind-body system interprets and responds to the world around us.

Only AFTER our mind-body system starts to engage, then does our conscious mind figure out what's going on.

The best they can guess is our conscious mind (that we think is in control) is an after-the-fact story telling device.

Imagine if you were a CEO of a huge company.

But something happened, and you had to bring your young son or daughter to work.

Imagine they were a pretty quiet and obedient kid.

So you could put them in an office, with a large window overlooking the factory, and give them a bunch of crayons and coloring books.

So while you and the rest of the folks are your company were busily getting things done, your kid was in the office looking out the window and drawing pictures.

And making up stories about what she saw, and incorporated those imaginations into her pictures.

The factory is our mind-body system.

The little kid in the office drawing pictures and making up stories is our conscious minds.

This is the best guess based on data from scientists who hook people's brains up.

Our consciousness, which we think is thinking and contemplating and reasoning and deducing, is really just watching things happen and making up stories.

Sure, when you're doing calculus homework or building something, your conscious mind is fully engaged.

But when you're doing anything else, anything that could be described as "going with the flow" your conscious is just sitting back watching things happen.

Which means it is VERY EASY to overthink ANYTHING that we do.

So much that if you ever catch yourself wondering what to do, you're probably thinking too much.

When it comes to communicating with others, almost EVERYBODY gets it backward.

Since EVERYBODY, unless they are surrounded ONLY by close friends, are ALWAYS thinking and worrying about what to say and do.

So when you flip the script, back to the NATURAL way, it will be a lot easier.

This takes some practice, but it's pretty easy.

Because it requires practicing WITHOUT speaking.

You need to re-train your conscious mind to get back in the back seat where it belongs.

So the rest of you can have a lot more fun.
