Thoughts on Unconscious Mind – Saint Sanat Kumara

In turn, your samkalpa loses control over the conscious part of the mind.For example, sometimes you think thoughts you don't want to think, speak words you don't wish to speak, and perform actions that you do not want to perform. Or you postpone certain thoughts or actions. All this is due to the unconscious.Sanat KumaraSource: The Tradition of the Himalayan Masters by Pandit Rajmani, Ph.D. Tigunait
