(2.6) To impress the subconscious, mentally state what is wanted.
Conscious mind informs the subconscious.
(2.5) Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will.
When we observe patterns/habits, we can be sure they have developed by conscious repetition. Eventually they become subconscious because mind is constantly ruminating and seeks freedom from directed attention. When understood and sed consciously, this is the key to mastery.
(2.4) The conscious mind has the faculty of discrimination; it has the power of reasoning. It is the seat of the will and may effect the subconscious.
Discrimination–in this context– refers to the ability to distinguish between two points on the spectrum of polarity. Reasoning is the art of mentally applying predictable outcomes of those points. The seat of will is our ability to choose/adjust ourselves based on reasoning.
(2.3) The value of the subconscious is enormous. It guides us. It warns us. It controls the vital processes and is the seat of memory.
Vital processes refer to biological functions that operate regardless of our conscious awareness. These are the essential survival mechanisms of nature at work within the body.
(2.2) Ease and perfection depend entirely upon the degree in which we cease to depend upon the conscious mind.
Conscious repetition results in subconscious learning. Once the subconscious has learned, the conscious mind is free to direct it’s attention to something else. Consider a child learning piano compared to the accomplished pianist who can have a conversation while playing a complex piece.
(2.1) There are two modes of mental activity–conscious and subconscious.
