Your consciousness is divided into two parts: The things you know that you know, and the things you don’t know that you know. And the ratio of the things you don’t know about yourself to the things you do know is astonishing.

We want to believe we’re fully aware of our belief system because we don’t have any other choice; an opposing claim would mean that we are controlled by something else. It just makes more sense to say what we do is driven by our will.

We say things like “Because I like it this way” or behave in a matter we don’t want without fully understanding why we’re actually saying or acting this way. And eventually, we see ourselves developing into someone we hate, not knowing how to escape. And here you see people developing many mental illnesses.

According to the Founder of MindValley, Mr. Vishen Lakhiani, you are not 100% aware of your beliefs. In his book “The Code of The Extraordinary Mind” he talks about how to recognize the corrupt models of reality embedded within our subconscious that drive our unwanted behavior.

Our models of reality lie below the surface. Often, we do not realize we have them until some intervention or contemplative practice makes us aware.

She always smokes cigarettes due to the continuous stress that comes from poor management and her growing knee pains. Plus, 5 milligrams of Melatonin are her only ticket to a good night’s sleep.

You love your aunt Silvia, but you feel bad for her. After hearing family members constantly talking about her with sympathy and sadness, you can’t help but believe that “Being a dancer makes you miserable”. Growing up with time, you see yourself drifting away…
