Words Whipping up Whimsical Waves of Notion

Can you sense it ?

He went out, opened the door, and took the newspapers from the corridor. Wished someone jogging outside. Started reading the newspapers with a cup of coffee in his hands.

We are used to certain things. And we do them a kind of robotically as we are very much used to them. We know how to do it or when to do it. So we are just doing the same without looking around, without perceiving much from the surroundings.

There is a saying about one’s skill like ‘he can do it even while sleeping’. They are pointing to the expertise of that one. But will the environment be same always? What’s the point in doing something unconsciously, without having any control over the changed environment?

Even if the environment is not changed, do we really watch it consciously while doing the routine stuffs..?

She sits with her laptop the whole day. After a while, found her searching for the pen-drive everywhere in the home. Lately only she noticed that it was there upon her laptop table itself. 

May be her eyes have seen that pen-stick lying just near to her. But she didn’t sense it at all. Or rather the impulse hasn’t reached her nervous system.

Be sensible and stop blaming on sense organs. Let the consciousness win over the sleepy mind.

Have you thought why our sense organs are not working in the way they are expected?

May be if that coherence happened with the senses, the world would have been crowded with Einsteins or Newtons. 😉

  1. What if I say u r not sensible when u sing Jana gana mana ?? Strange.. Because it comes out naturally ,effortless ,flawless ..
    Now this happens because of our repeated actions everyday..
    Remember -> you sow an action you reap a habit..
    That is why you people do it that way.. But yeah thought provoking post..

  4. We should be always conscious towards our thoughts, and our actions, that is how our habits are formed and so our character…

    Is it not the case?

  13. But we can get rid of it easily………

    We can divide our sense of being largely into two categories: The Active and the Passive Modes! Reading Newspapers and sipping a coffee or two along is when we are engaged but passively engaged…..Hence we may forget what others tell you to do sometimes or something which we are searching despite it being near to you….But Active engagement is when we are engaged and actively engaged…..Like being in the middle of an exam….where you are really conscious about the time and the number of answers to complete, or an engrossing movie awaiting the revelation of the killer or a great cricket match..where the situation is really tight……

    The Key lies in engaging actively with your environment………..

    • If you are actively involved in a particular job, nothing can make you absent minded. Does it imply that we should not be bothered on our surroundings while talking to a person? There are times we need to be fully conscious like exams.. And there are exceptions too like we can’t be focused fully on our environment

      • Yup! There can be exceptions….And those can happen when exceptions are not a problem for one………Let me share this with you:
        I have a friend whose home is in Thanjavur and for whom visiting Brihadeeshwarar Temple is a routine….But what he says about his routine visits will startle you: He says when every day he steps into the sanctum he sees a different temple! He leaves discovering an unknown facet about it every single day!! And that is called as Carpe Diem….or Enjoying/ Living the Moment! But yes as you said it is upto us! We should take the blame than blame the sense organs…..

  14. Great post as usual, Akhila! Routine can sometimes really hinder productivity. Really thought provoking post. I’d never really thought about routine that way until I read your post. 😊

  15. If it is in the subconscious mind it is because we have done it over and over again to put it there. All habits are in the subconscious. The ego loves to be lazy so when you do things the ego likes over and over it puts itself on auto.
    The subconscious loves new things and comes out when you do new things. The trick is to put things in the subconscious that really help you. Like an exercise routine or anything you enjoy doing. Do it over and over until it’s a habit. Then it’s not a chore to do anymore. Magic. 😉
    Great post.

    • Thanks for your words. I liked the explanation. But have you felt the absent mindedness w.r.t your surroundings while involved with that routine stuffs

      • Yes I know exactly what you are talking about. All routine things are basically habits. Habits are in the subconscious. Whether you put them there or they were put there for you. Once a habit is in the subconscious it is on automatic. When you do your job over and over it becomes a habit and you can, like you said, do it in your sleep. The subconscious does not care if it is good or bad it just does it once you make it a habit. This is how the greatest musician and athletes do it. They practice over and over and over until it is set in the subconscious, then when they play it looks easy. Like it is automatic.
        It is like your heart pumping or any other organ. The subconscious automatically does it for you without you thinking about it.
