A conscious mind

Prof Antonio Damasio on how  the brain creates our sense of self ?

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

    Very interesting. Sounds true enough too. More knowledge, and nothing wrong with that. The conscious mind. Isn’t that a natural result of spiritual teachings for everyman? The truly balanced human being?
    2 points, or I suppose for some (maybe him) they could be questions, come to mind :
    1) That there is a difference between a conscious mind that he is describing and the egoic mind which most people, even the nice ones, inhabit.
    2) Consciousness itself and the conscious mind are not the same at all.

    p.s. and then there is the path of the mystic. not for everyman, I think.

  3. Michaela says:

    Consciousness, like love, is a word with many meanings…

  4. Fatima says:

    Yes, in general that is true about a lot of words. Particularly with these words, consciousness and love. Picture a tree…..where word is the same for the root and the branches. They are definately related but not at all the same.

    I think that is a major confusion in my thinking….mixing branches with roots. figures ….thinking is itself a function of the branch…..of a different tree. Get my meaning? : )
