The subconscious is simply a part of ourselves from which we have turned away. The capacity of the mind to achieve withdrawal of awareness and subconscious containment of energies is itself remarkable, and although it appears to be mostly unbeneficial, the habit of suppression and the influence it has had on us has been a major factor in shaping our life and history. We have chosen to turn away, but we can easily turn back to the feelings in the subconscious if we so desire. The inner wall that has grown to divide ourselves is not that solid; it is more like a gray area, where tips of the iceberg are always coming into view. We have only hypnotized ourselves not to fully see and feel those hidden things.
