Have you ever suddenly realised that you're thinking things that haven't actually been articulated in the conscious part of your brain?
Sometimes I tune into my subcouscious - at least, I suppose that's what's happening - and it seems to be saying things like "next time around I'll try this differently..." and it's not talking about next week or next year. And it's also not an anxious or upset response to anything immediate. (That usually happens in a very conscious and obvious way!)
I think there must be some part of me that thinks we might all get another go at this life thing. My logical and scientific self... is not quite sure what to make of it all.
Ha! Maybe I'm a buddhist in a former life!
