Consciousness vs. Conscious Mind.

by Thomas Kwan.

The physical brain is to the thinking conscious mind as different parts of our brain has specific processing functions. The brain can be trained to increase its comprehension of complex tasks or store detailed and academic information. Thinking is the processing of information, images, and stimulus and is usually associated with logic, analysis, rational, and forms its own opinions. The activities of the thinking mind are usually within the left brain functions.

Consciousness is to that of the Soul. Consciousness can only exist outside our mental world of the thinking mind. Consciousness is the observatory function of awareness and it will not function as long as the conscious mind is working. Unlike the sub-conscious mind, only either the conscious mind or the super-conscious mind can work at any one time and when we are aware of this we can switch between the minds for specific tasks.

“The intellect is characterized by a natural inability to comprehend life.” Arthur Mitchell’s authorized translation of the work of Henri Bergson (1859 – 1941).

Consciousness; Transpersonal experiences are defined as; “the feeling of the individual that his consciousness expands beyond the usual ego boundaries and limitations of time and space. Whereby a person can experience his own identity in a different person, form, an animal, plant, rock; he can encounter supra-human spiritual entities, be one himself, transcend temporal limits, have all sorts of archetypal, para-psychological, and mystical experiences.” (Grof 1996).
