Personal Jesus


I can picture an everyday situation of the classroom where a lesson is taking place and me, sitting down, strolling through usually tonnes of notes in a mind-infecting journey across the universe. In other words, the self-contained boredom and monotony of a lesson.
Again though, positive realisations can be carved out from the most cynical of stone lumps in your thinking.
You pay attention to what is said and on the conscious surface, you may be processing it logically but when we refer to the sub-conscious, we get far more innovative and impulsive.
Whenever you are faced with a not necessarily troubling but any kind of situation, you are drawn towards the fact that what you do, what people then say or do, and what finally happens is a realistic, far from perfect but nevertheless, real situation.
But you often avoid the other phenomenon where your vast sub-conscious capacity is processing this exact situation but idealising it at the same time.
For instance, when I am in a lesson and in complete disagreement of what is actually taught and the teacher’s teaching methods, I naturally, sub-consciously attempt to
create my own perfect, flawless but nevertheless, identical circumstances where everything that happens is a direct descendant of my most inner desires.
In other words, everyday life can be dull on a conscious level, but when delved deeper so that you can access your sub-conscious ‘basements’, everyday life becomes something which is dictated according to how you view it best; how you want it to be.
Therefore, I think in basic terms, the sub-conscious is pretty much one’s Personal Jesus.

I guess the same applies to everyone but as I said, people do not focus enough on their sub-conscious and so do not understand the multiple, dual meanings of their everyday lives and miss out on a lot of learning from experience.
Still, if you disagree, you can always ignore your own Personal Jesus and thus, Enjoy The Silence…

Carl Jung's "The Undiscovered Self" explores a similar theme, though he didn't have the benefit of listening to the great Violator album.
