Utilizing the water analogy, the superconscious mind can be likened to the profound depths of a clear, calm body of water. Where the conscious mind is akin to the surface—distracted by the ever-changing play of waves, ripples, and reflections of light—the superconscious mind pierces through this chaotic veneer to the serenity and clarity below.
In this analogy, the conscious mind is preoccupied with the surface level phenomena of our lives: the day-to-day tasks, the routine, and the tangible, observable world. It is easily disturbed by the external forces that create the waves and distortions on the water’s surface, preventing a clear view of the depths beneath.
On the other hand, the superconscious mind is able to see beyond these distractions to the world that lies beneath the surface. It possesses a lucidity that allows for a deeper perception, akin to seeing the quiet bottom of the ocean undisturbed by the surface commotion. Even as the surface waves persist, the superconscious mind maintains its focus on the depths, where a different, more profound understanding of life exists.
This state of superconsciousness is not one of ignorance of the surface; rather, it is an expanded awareness that includes, but is not limited to, the surface level of consciousness. One is fully aware of the surface activities but chooses to direct their attention to the deeper aspects of existence. It is from these depths that one can derive insight, creativity, and a sense of connection with a larger purpose.
