Maybe this life would seem a little bit better if we surrended to our body's or subconsious's experience in the moment rather than try to work things out in our heads and find reasons for everything, plan the future and be stuck in the past.
Mind has been conditioned from the birth, by our parents, siblings, society, schools, everything. Everything that we believe is actually someone else's idea. There's always someone who got there first. The mind is so conditioned by all these things. Religion, culture, fashion... Which part in us really is the authentic self and the part that knows what is right for us?
Maybe it really is the subconcious, or the body's true response. The gut feel. What ever you call it. The one that our mind so easily over-rides with shoulds and musts and shouldn'ts and mustn'ts.
Because in all fairness we do live this life with our body, our organs, our nerves and impulses in our brain. The mind is the one who is trying to make some sense out of these things with it's conditioned experiences.
