Metaphor For The Mind

Have you seen a circus show? Who are the performers? They are the trainer and the tigerx.

The trainer hokds a whip, cracks his whip and the tiger does the bidding. He commandx “sit” and the tiger sits; he commands stand with only 2 legs and the tiger complies.

If you see from the angle of strength and power, the tiger is definitely more superior. It has the brute force.  But here, who gives the command and who follows the order?

As you can see, tge trainer though is weaker, has a stronger mind because he has a conscious mind that can think, analyse and comprehend, As a result, he gets tge right knowledge and gain dominion over the tiger.

The trainer is just like the conscious mind and the tiger is the subconscious mind.
