#714 Meditation 4.0 – S4 E5 – Unconscious life

Some people might not notice, but if there is one thing we love to do, it is this, living the unconscious life.

Do you control your breath work? Do you control your digestion process? Do you control your body in motion? The thing is, we do not. At least not as long as everything is fine. The truth is, we just live our lives and let our body and mind do the rest. But once this is about to change, damn it, we seem to have a problem.

If you have never experienced it yourself, maybe just maybe you will have a hard time believing. But things can get out of control. Out of the autonomous way of living. In order to achieve great things, our mind needs to be free. Free from distractions, free from worries, free from simple tasks like digesting food. Maybe we can compare our brain to a computer. Once there are too many programs running at the same time, things get out of control. The performance gets reduced, it might take longer to open something new, you know the struggle. However we want to look at it, it is always a good idea to do not focus on too many things at the same time. And so, life can be great, but life can also be full of worries and simple tasks.

The goal should never be the unconscious life. At least not in the way we interpret it these days. But running your body in autopilot is definitely an important thing to consider. If you do not feel comfortable in your current position, how do you expect your body to handle the up and downs in your daily struggling? How do you think will you be able to handle the stress that is coming your way?

Letting go is something we all need to learn. Sending negative thoughts away, worries and doubts. There is nothing won by working against yourself, against your own body. Only as a team you will be able to succeed, to achieve great things. Therefore, listen! Listen to your body! Listen to the signals! Listen to the reactions you show. Life might be good the way it is, but life can always change. It’s better to be prepared. It’s better to start at the beginning, not when the flood is already closing in.

Make it a habit to understand yourself. Figure out where you feel uncomfortable and why. Give yourself the time that you need.

See you next time!

  1. great post. I would add, in addition to not living automatic life, when in discomfort, we face it, acknowledge it, be present in our body to how we are experiencing this particular situation. Then it changes.
