Metaphysical meaning of conscious (rw)
conscious mind--The mind that makes one know of one's mental operations and states of consciousness; that phase of mind in which one is actively aware of one's thoughts. The mind through which man establishes his identity.
Most persons automatically mean conscious self-awareness, and awareness of one's thoughts when they use the word "mind." Our sense of I am is usually centered on this level of our mind. It takes little or no effort to maintain this. But it does take effort to become aware of the other levels of mind. And it often takes great effort to raise our sense of I am to higher levels of mind. The conscious level of mind is the most familiar to us and generally it is where we feel most normal and "at home."
