UNconsciousness is leading life and reading life at the superficial level – where you take at face value whatever is going on in your life #beyourownguru #BYOG

Yesterday we talked about how exercising your free will in a conscious decision to improve your life leads to success and leads to things you may not even be able to imagine where you are right now, so today I want to talk about the flip side of that, what happens when you are unconscious and actually, what does *un*conscious mean in practical terms?

So UNconsciousness is leading life and reading life at the superficial level – where you take at face value whatever is going on in your life or you just go through the motions of your day.

You have to do XYZ and so you do XYZ. No question, no thought and no deliberation. No consideration into what in fact is going on in your life.

And this is true of a great many people for a great many reasons. Because maybe life is just too hard, maybe work is just too overwhelming, so the time needed and the space needed to actually look at what you’re doing, to reconsider what you are doing, is at a premium.

I’ve had a comment once about consciousness and about doing something about extreme tiredness and basically life falling apart and the comment was “I don’t have time to think and plan and consider. My life is fraught with difficulty” and from her description it was.

So I’m not saying you have to abandon practicalities. Of course, urgent situations require urgent attention but whenever you are not in an urgent situation, and I highly recommend if you are in an urgent situation right now, you try to plan it such that you do give yourself the space.

Because if you don’t question what you are doing, how you are doing it and what is happening to you. If you accept life on a superficial basis, you are living life unconsciously. You are accepting whatever life throws at you on the basis of it being what life throws at you.

And unless you stop doing that you will not be able to reach a point where you direct life. You don’t get things thrown at you. You don’t get anything coming at you unexpectedly.

But you live life consideringly and in a way that *you* choose.
