A moment ago your breathing was being completely monitored by your subconscious mind. But now that these words have helped you to become Mindful of your body breathing, your conscious mind has united with your subconscious. And they have entered into a state of harmony where the two are beginning to work together as one.
This harmonization or unification of our conscious and subconscious awareness lies at the heart of all acts of Mindfulness and creativity.
However, sometimes we are little too fractured, deep down at the subconscious level, to harness the energy required to maintain a Mindful state. And so in order to rise up and awaken, in order to be truly creative, we first have to also heal some of our ancient wounds.
