the subconscious control of desire
    #1641363 - 06/18/03 03:36 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Have you ever had an intense desire for something that you feel it almost took over you in a way? Almost like you were not really in control of you anymore, but the desire was?

Perhaps you won't realize it at the time, but in retrospect you may look back at your actions and think "wow, i can't believe i did that," or "geez, i was out of control!" I was just thinking about that and I really feel that our desires can have some strong subconscious control over us.

It's kinda weird I think... It's like you are being controlled by a part of you that you're not really aware of. Or something.

Peace & Intelligence,

Absolutely. Our actions are really influenced by everything that's in our brains, but only part of it is included in the "persona" that we identify with. And this persona is not as stable as we like to believe, it changes from time to time. It's not even as individual as we like to believe, because many people tend to identify themselves very strongly with some group such as a nation, or a race, or a class.

It's a little like when a catchy tune gets stuck in your brain, and you begin to get tired of it after a while. Who allowed that tune to sneak into your brain? Who is playing it? What things do you think about to make the tune go away?

I've found that there is strength in vulnerability. If you allow yourself to be open enough (as objectively as possible) analyze your re-actions truthfully (there's no reason to lie to yourself, even if you choose to lie to everyone else) you'll find a deeply rooted form of self-expression that you are holding back from the world.

By allowing yourself to ACT out this expression ("You know what, I really don't like the way you treat me!") then your re-action ("Why did I yell at you for 'seemingly' no reason?") never takes place.

See if there's something you're not showing the world?


Unmanifested expression leads to internal pressure resulting in subconcious re-action!?

One word- Orgasm

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?
