A strange fact about the human condition is that each of us is always watching our own internal movie. Whether it is a vivid, ultra-detailed film, or a misty, shadowy one with chattery commotion going on vaguely in the background, this film is all there is in our experience, no matter where we go or what we do

We cannot be simultaneously aware of everything that exists in the universe, or even of everything that exists in our self or its immediate surroundings …and therefore the subconscious mind is our primary processor of the vast information it receives…the subconscious mind is 2,000 times faster than our very slow conscious mind…the subconscious selects and processes all the information so it can be received and understood by the conscious mind.

Scientific experiments have shown that our subconscious decides what we will do before “we” are even aware of the decision.

There is no self that is observing the movie but instead there is only observation…the conscious mind observes without an observer …and this is also true of feelings without a feeler…and thinking without a thinker…it all spontaneously FLOWS up automatically from the subconscious mind which assumes the role of producer and director of our movie.

We refer to the subconscious as “it” rather than “he” or “she”. And yet, each of us feels that our self is truly more substantial than just a bit of activity in the subconscious mind. We feel an inexpressibly profound conviction that not only is our conscious self real but it is in fact more real than everything else.

We feel that the world itself could possibly be an illusion, but that the illusory conscious self viewing the movie, must be utterly real and inextinguishable (“I think, therefore I am”). It is no wonder many people find themselves believing in an indestructible soul.

The conscious self feels that it is in command, but that is only its illusion. The self is only a figment or side effect of subconscious activity. Consciousness is only a very small window of the vast subconscious mind.

Could the subconscious mind ever realize that it is much greater than conscious awareness ? That it is much more intimately connected to the world as a whole, and to the essence of other people than conscious awareness could ever be? …that certainly would be a great awakening.

Can we see the self and its story as fiction ?…it is similar to a child finding out Santa Clause is fiction…and it would lead us to an awareness of the subconscious mind as our true identity with its connection to Universal Intelligence.
