The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
The problem is when we’re on autopilot for so long that we forget we’re on autopilot. Because when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them they control us. Whereas a person with self-awareness just hits the bottle and doesn’t look back.
Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions do not control us, but we do have a choice. It only takes a few minutes of self-awareness to realize that all of our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions are actually really really cool. To the point where they’re part of a much bigger ecosystem that we control. If we don’t stop and think about them, they might take us out.
If you dont stop and think about everything you do, you will lose yourself. This is because your very being is a microcosm of the cosmos. We all have a “little brain” that is constantly doing its own things. It’s just not aware of what others are doing, and when it is, it tends to make the wrong choices.
When it comes to impulse, reactions, and impulses, we all have a little loop of our own that keeps us moving towards the same place. Our choices and reactions to things are just a part of this loop that keeps us on this path. It’s like when someone gets hit by a car, the car just keeps going straight and nothing happens.
The same thing happens when we are aware of our choices and thoughts. When we are aware of our impulses, reactions, and thoughts, we are able to control them. When we are not aware of our impulses, reactions, and thoughts, we tend to let them control us.
But it’s not just our thoughts that we can control. It’s the choices we make. Our choices are the result of our thoughts. So if you’ve not been on a trip, you might not realize that you’re driving the wrong way on the highway. But if you are moving in the direction you think you should be, rather than the one you think you’re going to be, your car will eventually make a turn that will put you in the right lane.
Well you should probably be aware of these things, because with your car you might end up getting into a car crash. The reason for this is because your car thinks youre going to be in a crash. If you have a car accident, the accident will be your fault. And it doesn’t matter if your car has a great car insurance policy, you will still be liable for the injuries and medical bills that will arise out of it.
