How the mind works (Part 3)

This is the third and last article on the subject, “How your mind works”. So if you haven’t read the first two articles on this topic, I recommend you do so. In the previous articles, I made it clear that the human mind is divided into three functional units- the conscious mind, subconscious mind, and super-conscious mind. And while the first article centered on the functions of the conscious mind, the second article elaborated what the subconscious mind does. This article has been written to expound on the primary function of the superconscious mind. 

The third and last, but not the least, mind is the superconscious or hyperconscious mind. It is also known as sapience or cognitive power, which distinguishes man from animals. The reason man is intellectually superior to plants and animals, is because of the existence and magnificence of the superconscious mind. The superconscious mind is where the remarkable and indescribable power of human potentials lie. The science of the hyperconscious mind is too deep and too extraordinary to describe.

By putting the superconscious mind to great use, you are capable of unimaginable things; things that even you couldn’t possibly think you could achieve. We must constantly put our superconscious mind to great use by exposing it to increasingly meaningful knowledge, and by exercising the power of our creativity. The brilliant ideas behind technology, art, science, commerce, and music are because of the active usage of the hyperconscious mind.

We need all three mind divisions to maximize our inherent potential. We need to metamorphose from this high potential low capacity state of ours to a high potential high capacity state. And it will take maximum concentration power and incredible, yet possible, degree of perseverance to attain and experience that. For a prospective achiever who is ready for this tremendous accomplishment, he must be prepared to put his mind to great use.

The superconscious mind, if put to good use, also enables us to be quick-witted with respect to the things we are trying to know, or the skill we are trying to acquire. While it takes passion and interest to exercise the power of the superconscious mind, it takes courage and insight to maximize it. You will require more than passion to accomplish your self-transformation goal- you will also need to exhibit courage practically all the time; passion alone will not do it.

By introducing a problem to the conscious mind, and then working to solve the problem, you exercise the power of the superconscious mind. For example, when your concentration is absolutely focused on something, you will discover that ideas and unexpected intelligence will begin to be produced by you, you will begin to see opportunities around you, and you will often come to maximize such opportunities, all because you have utilized the power of your concentration effectively.

You may suddenly begin to find the materials you need, remember places where you can get what you need, remember people that can help you in your course to achieve greatness, discover a more conducive place for learning, etc. However, in order to maximize the power of our hyperconscious mind, we must start by maximizing the power of our concentration. Giving a laser-like concentration to a valued task or activity has the benefit of increasing the quality of your performance in it. There is a very good chance that you will improve in an activity that you spend plenty of time, attention, and effort on. 

Our analytical ability, problem-solving skills, intuition, and creativity are all embedded in the superconscious mind. The hyperconscious mind is developed each time we engage in solving problems and puzzles, finding solutions to tricky questions, and demystifying. And like the capacity of the two other divisions of the mind (the subconscious mind is capable of storing limitless information and events), this mind is also capable of limitless awesomeness! If you keep developing your superconscious mind, you might get to a point whereby a computer may not be able to meet up with your problem-solving speed.
