Buddhists call the other part of the mind field mind consciousness.Similar to what some people call the conscious mind, it contains our conscious thoughts. Our thoughts determine our actions, and our thoughts are like seeds. We decide which thoughts we will plant, nurture, and harvest. We are the gardeners of our lives. Once a seed manifests in our mind, we determine whether to ignore it and let it wither, or strengthen it and let it blossom. It’s important to pay attention to what we are watering.
