Understanding life comes from a co-operative effort between the mind/body/spirit. Harmony within the mind/body/spirit requires consciousness. Consciousness has been left underdeveloped and has been placed in subjection to intellectual analysis because its power is not understood, and therefore is being used to define what is not wanted, instead of what is wanted.
We have not really been taught what consciousness is, and thus have placed an inferior interpretation on what it is for. We understand that consciousness gives us the ability to be self aware, but this self awareness comes from brain activity, when in fact consciousness is multi dimensional. It is this ability that gives us the ability to think outside of the box. What is the box? It is the brain.
The brain cannot identify or analyze emotional content correctly. Our internal senses were created for this purpose. When natural emotions are consciously placed under the direction of brain analysis, the outcome is internal conflict, which is experienced as body anxiety.
We are consciously confused and conflicted because we believe we are responsible for coming to some kind of resolution for an internal conflict, but most conflicts emerge before the age of 5, or before we had the ability to logically assess an experience. When we cannot emotionally understand the experience, we place our emotions under the care of intellectual analyses. This does not resolve the problem because before we are 5 we do not have the ability to be emotionally logical. Attempting to intellectually analyze the emotions that have been inadvertently been placed under the direction of the intellect only leads to frustration and more intensity. Until the sensory deprived emotion has been consciously realigned with the sensory perception, the mind/body/spirit will be in conflict.
Because consciously undoing the damage done to sensory perception takes time to learn, it is necessary to consciously understand how to move around the intellect and restore the natural condition of peace, which will integrate the mind/body/spirit. Although this will not fix the problem, it does give us a way to find peace in the midst of turmoil. This involves learning how to consciously take control of both our emotions and intellectual analysis, and then move in another direction that we have consciously chosen. This places us consciously in control of the mind/body/spirit, instead of the conflict between the three controlling us.
Because we unconsciously believe we are at the mercy of unwanted emotions, we attempt to reason our emotions away when it would be simpler to reason away our intellectual analysis of our emotions. Because we are sensory beings first, and our emotions are part of our senses, protecting our emotional integrity is an honest conscious choice. Because intellectual analysis involves emotional deception, this will cause internal conflict.
