The Higher Unconscious

The unconscious is not less conscious but more! It’s not just pushed down; it’s not just “Let’s not look at what we’re doing,”—i.e., repression—but rather what we’re doing you couldn’t begin to understand! What if the unconscious is super-con-scious and much faster and more clever than you can be. Some of it is influenced by childhood, but it isn’t child-like or naive! So we need to re-think the subconscious mind, imagining it to be not infantile—as Freud considered it—but brilliant beyond our understanding, and exerting far more power than we have.

Freud made it just hidden and child-like so he could analyze it, but analyses took years and they didn’t do half as well as they thought they could. I don’t think it occurred to Freud that the unconscious mind could think circles around him! That’s because the unconscious mind is so very clever. You couldn’t make up this stuff half so well! Radical idea, but fits with learn how to relax and let your higher unconscious do its thing

Psychosomatic illness is a great trick. If we recognize the unconscious mind as far smarter, we’ll see it as more clever, and indeed so clever as to disguise and out-think any simple “interpretation.” Georg Groddek was closer to the truth that we are lived by an “It” that is us but far more clever than us. Some interpretations offer the deep mind a new outlet, and sometimes it works, but that doesn’t mean that the one doing the interpretation really understands.

Healing, then, is at the high 8th or even 9th dimension. All we can do is surrender to it, obey it, serve it. The trick is to take as much responsibility as we can while also not over-doing it. Let go and let God. The “Higher Unconscious” is unconscious because it would boggle our brains (literally) to know what it’s doing. Consciousness is a narrow but necessary layer to serve God in certain ways, but it is not the be-all and end-all by any means. It’s an attack on human narcissism. It’s just not true that if it can’t be thought (by humans) it’s not worth thinking. That’s so painfully narcissistic, but one must open to super-human intelligence to get there.
