Why we think we only have ability to do physical works only with these bodies if we believe in souls ?
If we are actually bodies then what is meaning of life and death?
We assume ourselves as bodies but we are not only bodies, we are something else but what is that ?
One thing is Sure that every person on Earth wants to know truth which is inside us. Normally every persons believes in God, Souls and do worship in their own ways, and yes everything exists and true. I am going to put some views on our consciousness and Subconsciousness which makes us feel our Identity.Consciousness is the quality and state of our mind to understand external objects. We all know that we humans only use 10 to 12% of our mind, which is our consciousness and rest part of brain is in subconsciousness. Subconscious is why because we don't have ability to access that part. but there is more in the power of your Subconscious mind.
Subconsciousness is not simple as we think, you can say it as Secret room of our brain. That is the main reason why every person is different in manners of Sense, knowledge, smartness. But it is believed that by doing regular practice one can get ability to access this secret room or you can say one can control over the Subconscious mind. " Is it true "? Yes, it is true. Today we commonly use one word "Sixth sense". Sixth Sense is the ability of those people who can litelary access subconscious mind. Most people who do regular meditation,exercise and yoga practice they have better ability of Sixth Sense. There are many people who tells their personals experiences on spiritual path. If we look back in past there are many stories and myths of Saints who have ability to leave their bodies at their own wish and can enter their bodies again, they have ability to communicate via Telepathy, ability to move objects by their mind powers(telekinesis), all these are the parts of Subconscious mind. Today we get a good knowledge on universe but forgets the powers of mind.
Reincarnation: It is a religious concept of spirit or soul that after death of this biological body, a new life begins that may be human, animal or or spiritual depending on the moral quality of the previous life's actions. And sometimes people get awareness of their previous life and their identity(what they were,where lived,what was name) and other details of their previous life which is called Reincarnation. There are many people all over the world who gave proof of their previous lives and they were exactly true. They know their full details and events of previous lives, even they told the stories about their death. Now reincarnation is biggest proof for the power of your Subconscious mind.
Those people are not different, they just have little ability to their Subconscious mind. Now here is a point to think, if we gain some development in this region then what can we do with these abilities. Whole meaning of life will be changed. But sadly today Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles with conscious mind but misguided the powers of subconscious mind.
For me Consciousness is the ability of our mind to access and understand all activities related to our body and present life, Where Subconsciousness is ability of our soul to understand all its powers with knowledge of past lives.
