If you’re uncaring and irresponsible, you pull to you all sorts that will treat you erratically and let you down. If you are out of control emotionally and inattentive, you slip off the sidewalk and sprain your ankle; if you stay in control and focused, you complete your journeys without incident.
If you are generous, people treat you warmly, if you are mean, life treats you more harshly. Your waking intellect bends reality to suit your personality. So quite naturally, you see and comprehend life and events as you want to see them, so you may not realize you are hard on people, and yet you may wonder why life is hard on you. Karma is hidden. It doesn’t usually offer explanations. You have to work things out looking inside yourself.
Beyond the intellect is your subconscious. Very few have much idea what their subconscious mind is or what information it contains. You will see it talking to you in your dreams, but it may offer you such an incoherent hotchpotch of images and feelings, you haven’t much idea what it is saying.
The subconscious mind is more the ‘real’ you, as it doesn’t have the fake concoction of the waking intellect, it just accepts your feeling and ideas and impulses, without the ability to alter them. Simply put you could say, beyond denial is the subconscious. It is the perpetual memory of everything that you are and all your innermost feelings. It’s your raw self.
