The thinking system is all the time on the background: dispersed, disjointed, wondering about, mostly by free association, (stealing us from us). Whereas the consciousness system is wide, expended, penetrating and clear, and it is happening upon us, only from time to time, as magic and a blessing.
The influence of the thinking system upon the consciousness system is in laying a fit foundation and source. (After all, the thinking system for the consciousness system is like the brain to mind, or the body for the soul, or the sentences in a book for the inspiration and creativity of the author).
The consciousness system is keeping the thinking system – fresh, agile, in full function and healthy. And the bottom line- the only agent that can bring order and peace to the thinking system – is the consciousness system.
(Mending and fixing the thinking system will not bring about consciousness development, but developed consciousness can mend and fix the thinking system).
