Consciousness explained: it is the muscle of your soul – the more you use it, the stronger it gets. #beyourownguru #BYOG

Yesterday we spoke about being happy and finding ways to make yourself happy everyday.

And when you do that, what are you doing?

You are consciously determining your emotions.

You are consciously influencing your emotions to be in a mindset that is advantageous for you.

And that’s what I want to talk about today.

Every time you take control – you take control of your day, you take control of your mental leanings, you take control of your emotional inclinations, you are exerting consciousness, right? You are being conscious about what you do.

And the more you do this, in little ways at first and bigger ways if you so choose, you know, where you *consciously* make the big decisions of your life, you will find it gets easier and easier and it becomes natural.

In that respect if you think about, if you’ve ever started a physical training program where you are doing weight training or resistance training, what happens? You start off with really weak and atrophied muscles, and as the days progress you can see the definition coming into your muscles, you can experience the strength in your muscles. You can lift things that you couldn’t before and that sort of thing.

And consciousness is just like that. It’s a muscle, it’s the muscle of your soul and the more you exert it, the more you use it in your life, the stronger it becomes. It’s a no brainer.

So you can start off in small ways like determining your emotional state and determining who you like to be with and why, and consciously receiving the messages from your life and consciously responding to those messages in as big or small a way as you wish to.

In reality, it doesn’t take very long because remember this consciousness that we’re talking about is not some invisible entity out there in the atmosphere. It’s not a creature of myth and legend. This is you we’re talking about. This is the real you, within you.

So it doesn’t take very long for that real you to start responding to all the usage it’s getting, to the workout it’s getting.

And it will grow stronger. The more you use it, the stronger you will get. And the idea is to start using it sooner rather than later, and to get stronger sooner rather than later.
