Unconscious Desiring

The conditioned mind creates a view based in the unconscious desires of the world. It’s difficult to break this because most of what goes on in our daily lives reinforces this view. A conscious mind is simply aware of awareness…

When unconscious desires are fulfilled and things are going your way, there’s not much of a struggle; life is considered good. When things are going the way that you want, what causes your struggles are pushed aside. When this is done it makes the base of life centered in the world of unconscious desires and you will get pulled around by the conditioned mind like a puppet on a string.

The more this occurs the more suffering there will be in your life. Sometimes it’s very subtle, but it’s there. As a matter of fact even if you’re not aware of being controlled by the unconscious desires, they still produce suffering. The suffering doesn’t occur because you don’t get your way, it occurs just by being in a state where the unconscious conditioned mind is in control.

The less the world of unconscious desires (which is just wanting what you want, when you want it) are the base of your view, the less you struggle with yourself and with life. This is simply because unconscious desires aren’t in control. When you’re unaware of this the conditioned mind creates chaos by unconsciously desiring; there’s immense suffering in this unawareness. Practice being in a space of no mind, with no mind there is no unconscious desiring.
