If we think about our body , We find that our mind is very essential thing .what ever we do in day today life , every thing is is associated or we can say that functioning of that. Here some questions which you should asks to yourself and think on that – Is you really know about mind? What is thought & from where it come. How you can make a new good habit and leave bad one?
Mind is that part of a human being that thinks, feels, and wills, as contrasted /different with body. Mind is basically categories into three types: 1. Conscious mind 2. Sub-conscious mind and 3. Unconscious mind
Conscious mind is also known for activeness i.e awake and aware of his surrounding. With the use of conscious mind your mind consciously aware of what you are doing that is you are reading this article. Apart from this with the help of conscious mind you decides what is good/bad ,right/wrong . It is basically decision making mind means it decides which school/college or subject is good for you. Which friend is good/bad one. Which dress suits on you. Conscious mind does everything which you actively wants to do.
let us understand with an example – when you and your friends went to school first time your mind was very active-it take care of, from where you have to take turn , which path is right .But after months you did not care of ,you are start discussing some thing different like what is going in your school/life i.e your active mind subject is different but you reach correct destination , how it is possible?. Because at this time your another mind start working subsequently this is known as Subconscious mind. In your Subconscious mind that route is recorded so , even though you are not paying attention , your subconscious mind is active , leading the way to your school.
Illustration of dualism. Inputs are passed by the sensory organs to the epiphysis in the brain and form there to the immaterial spirit.
Dualism is associated with the thought ,which holds that mind is a nonphysical thing- and therefore, not spatial-substance which differentiate it from brain. Brain is basically physical part of your body.
Thoughts are basically energy( e=hv = mc2) as according to Albert Einstein total energy is conserved, it can only be converted one forms to another, but can not be created or generated so all thoughts which are coming to our mind are already floating around us so a thought is basically what our brain picks up from the environment. Our mind is basically like an antenna so once it is tuned to a particular frequency that thought hits our head.
The unconscious mind consists of the processes in the mind which occur automatically and not available to introspection. this include thought processes ,memories, interests, and motivations. For example Some memories related to your child-hood friend that you forget gets into unconscious mind when you meet him you recall it.
The important point to remember here, is that we cannot, by choice, remember anything in our unconscious without some special event or technique. This is the unconscious.
The subconscious, on the other hand, is almost the same, but the major difference is we can choose to remember. The memories are closer to the surface of conscious mind and more easily accessible with a little focus.
How you use conscious and subconscious gently
If i say that your mind does not know what is wrong and what is right for you , you get surprised .Because most of activities controlled by your subconscious part of mind and it can not configure what is right and what is wrong ,its only be by conscious mind. The main function of conscious mind is 1. Ability to direct your focus and 2. its ability to imagine that what is not real. Functioning of these two, if you really understand then you can create own wanted habits and stop engaging habitual practices that you did not want. Lets understand it…
IN MAKING HABITS: It is the only conscious mind that take a information ,focus on it and imagine about it and conclude about it that result feed into your subconscious mind . If that information comes multiple times(generally for habit formation -21days) to you and your conscious mind react same way then formation of habit occurs. let it understand by some examples: let a person which going to smoke first time you take different-2 condition how your conscious mind focus ,imagine & conclude- in first condition he is sitting with community who smokes daily and they give some thought like – smoking helps to relax/ release tension , famous personalities also smokes like -Albert Einstein, Jawaharlal Nehru etc , in smoking nothing bad . If that person’s conscious mind think and imagine that flavor is nice and nothing bad in smoking, on that moment information surpass conscious mind to subconscious and unconscious mind .If Subconscious mind take same information multiple time it converts into smoking habits. In second condition if your conscious mind focus & imagination on- smoking causes cancer ,lungs disease and disorder, flavor is very bad, chronic disease. This time information goes to subconscious and unconscious mind but focus and imaginations are different that give thought -why not to smoke. If it happen multiple times ,it also became habit of NO SMOKING.
Habits of -drinking alcohol , Drug addiction, Gamming ,reading , Daily exercise ,punctuality in life, enhancing focus of mind by doing yoga and meditation . These are some good and bad habit list.
I already added that your subconscious and unconscious mind does not know what is good for your health and society . Subconscious and Unconscious mind giving intuition and your body perform that on regular basis until or unless your conscious mind become active .Its results definitely affects any ones life .
