The unconscious is the residue of the past

November 10, 2013 Comments Off on The unconscious is the residue of the past

So it is very important to understand not only the conscious, but also the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind is much more powerful, much more insistent much more directive and conservative than the conscious mind; because the conscious is merely the educated mind which adjusts itself to the environment. He is adjusting himself, as you do, to the environment, to the pressure from outside, but inwardly he is the same – that is, the unconscious is still the residue of the past. – Krishnamurti, 1957 3rd Public Talk, Colombo
