How You Know When You Are Living Unconsciously

By Pamela J. Wells

  • When you are trying to control another human being.
  • When you desire to be accepted by others.
  • When you live your life from the ego, the false self, your imagination, your idea of who you think you are.
  • When you are engulfed in thoughts instead of aware of thoughts.
  • When you create drama and you’re not a professional actor or playwright.
  • When you live your life on emotional auto-pilot.
  • When you believe other peoples delusional thoughts, beliefs—faulty and false ideas and notions.
  • When you believe your identity is formulated by the opinions of others.
  • When you create your identity from your own ideas of who you think you are.
  • When you get angry and become defensive over what other people say to and about you.
  • When you judge others, hate others, are bitter.
  • When you play shallow games of manipulation of and with others, getting a delusional high over the way you treat others, which comes from non-acceptance of self and insecurity.
  • When you think that you are what you do—your job, education—who you know—your given “status” in society—what you own, your house, your car.
  • When you believe everything that your government tells you as truth.
  • When you hate another country and people, because you believe your countries propaganda.

Living an unconscious life is easy—until you wake up. 
Then you are able to transcend your own 
unnecessary, self-inflicted and projected, suffering 
and are then able to experience 
your natural state of peace and joy.

  1. I just read this post and it describes me 'perfectly' and was never aware of this. I was always aware of the undercurrent of unease within me,but never knew quite whst was goin on. I'm in therapy and still have a lot of work to do.
    Thank you.
