(from Buddha Heruka)
The sub-conscious mind always knows what to do; the conscious mind interferes by introducing the “problem-solving” mind into the process.
The problem-solving mind actually muddies the waters by putting forth options, possible outcomes, various points of view, and expectations.
It’s fine for the conscious mind to gather these considerations at the beginning of the decision-making process, but once they are gathered the sub-conscious mind never forgets them, so they just need to be stored and ignored, as occurs naturally. Then the sub-conscious mind can transmit the best solution.
