We have all experienced reading a few lines or in fact pages in a state of automatic pilot and not being able to recall any of it. This is our body’s clever way of saving fuel. Our conscious brain is a gas guzzling high powered machine when we concentrate, for example like learning a new language. To be more efficient our subconscious brain takes over, it looks at what we are experiencing now and sees if it looks familiar with a previous experience. If it does, it assumes that the experience is the same as yesterday and behaves in the same way. It creates a blue print of your daily life and feeds you this reality again and again. No wonder we feel bored, no wonder small kids say, “I know that Aunty”.
It is estimated that we spend 80% of our life on autopilot or subconscious pilot! This means that majority of life is habituated doing what we regularly do and not seeing the unique context of that moment as a separate time (fourth dimension) in three dimensional space.
Our life is lived in a dull blur. We resist the now and the new.
We need to override this autopilot. Each time you notice you are on autopilot, or the next time you take a drink of water, tea, etc. Take a slow deep breath in through your nose, hold the breath, exhale through the nose, smile and ask yourself, “what is needed now?” Because it is different to what was needed yesterday. Just by doing this you will have taken yourself off autopilot and switched on your high powered intuitive, brain. Enjoy, life is here to be experienced not thought about!
