When a baby is born, he is extremely simple, not complicated, real, sincere, in complete harmony with Nature and with the Cosmic Order.

The subconscious mind of a baby takes very little space in his life as he is connected to the Universe.

As we grow older, the subconscious mind grows bigger and takes more and more space into our life.

With time, the subconscious mind becomes the real you. It is composed of beliefs, fears, and attitudes that interfere with everyday life and that pushes us away from happiness our original nature.

The subconscious mind is a defense mechanism created and maintained by the ego. Its highest priority is to keep us emotionally safe. It spends most of its energy protecting our feelings and keeping us out of emotional pain and discomfort.

Do not underestimate the subconscious mind. It is stronger than the conscious mind, even stronger that the will.

As we grow older and forget our connection with the Cosmos, the subconscious mind becomes the core of who we are; it becomes the center of our personality.

During meditation, the subconscious mind comes to the surface, and we can observe it.

Through the practice of Zazen, with time, the subconscious mind diminishes, decrease and unite with the conscious mind so that in the end its us, its our existence here and now, that dominates, and not our subconscious.
