“Our mind is like a house“
Inspired from TV Series “Freud”.
I was impressed by the metaphor that compared our mind with a house. The conscious mind is a light/a candle that illuminates one room, one part of the house, one space; the rest of the house, with all its chambers, stairs, corners, hallways, is also part of the mind even if it sits in darkness. That gloom part is our unconscious mind.
Think about our earth that has a lot of hidden treasures; we cannot see all there is in the abyss of all waters, perceive what is beyond the clouds in the heights of all the mountains or what creatures are hiding in the depth of mountain caves. Right now and right here we just see our country, our town, our front house view. But the rest is out there, continuing its life in stillness and silence. And then there is also the sky…the solar system; it encompasses more darkness than the light made by the stars and planets. It is there too, we are just not conscious and aware of it all. But we are all part of this spaciousness, of this greater order comprised of: darkness, light, dark matter, black holes, planets, Stars, Sun, Moon, Earth, people and beings altogether. For us, the humans, only when we get to accept all of this together and act as an indispensable part of this Universe, we can say that we are powerfully living our true purpose.
Gravitating in the unconsciousness
Sinking in the unconscious mind, is like a float in a gravity-less universe among the stars. Every star holds information about a memory or a dream. When we get closer, we can take a look and can even zoom in to get a high definition access to all the details. It is amazing to discover all the characteristics we can examine in that altered consciousness state. There are so many components and attributes of a memory that can come back in an instant: pictures or actually the entire film of the event, sounds reproducing voices and surroundings, feelings in the body, sensations, emotions, smells and even tastes…. And everything is stored in our mind. We carry them with us and just have to forget them in the unconscious mind so our logical mind does not feel overwhelmed.
In this inner mind universe, some of the stars are lightning bright, some other’s light is like dawn and some of them are already extincted. But all intelligence and experience there is ours. It is our complete micro cosmos. It awaits us to uncover the information right when we need it and when we are ready to acknowledge and welcome it in our nature. And this last piece is our homecoming!
