What Dwells Within the Unconscious Mind?

What dwells within the unconscious mind?

The tip of the iceberg where all things present, known by actions, subtleties of once lost forgotten spoken word, this is not how young grasshopper comes to know who he may be or who she aspires to her futurity. It is seen without ever further delving deeper into the seas of life’s great mysteries for the conscious mind.

It is just below the surface, faintly attuned to understandings and possibilities, yet another layer, pastoral care-free persona developing on the undercarriage of a classic tale. Preconscious of the little bear’s heart-warming tale, further dive into the abyss, the great unknown.

Triggered mind’s transcript written by the sages before, causality uncertain about rooting cause until presented in the day, a nighttime glimpse of shadowy effects, untended hearts giving off war cries, sending up flares for the self to give witness. Deep in the unconscious, buried for all eternity or until the desire for greater draws us even passionately into the uncharted.

Self-mastery not for the faint of heart, often scarred by fallen trees, broken limbs, once forgotten triggered stories of another like the time before drowning in life’s metaphors or losing consciousness and being dragged to the surface. In the subconscious’s constructs, we are self-realized, varying techniques written for thousands of years, choose one or many in alignment with heart’s true home, knowing that we are here today, present known as it was in the beginning.

This poem was inspired by a 30-day challenge and our unconscious minds. Just a layer in the subconscious to give attention to our daily reactionary processes. Triggered by trauma, intrinsic or dogmatic belief, ancestral DNA encoded messages of what is real, we are given a choice to remain on the surface or dive deeper to better understanding of self and the Great Canvas of Life.

Much gratitude for those who take time to read, ponder and allow the inner workings of self to come forward. Grateful for the feedback, love shared, and more importantly the Dance with Inspiration. Deep Peace.
