Dichotomy of Conscious

When I talk to the conscious self,
it keeps me grounded. Not letting my thoughts,ambitions and imaginations fly. It humanizes me. Limits me.
The unconscious self, on the other hand, lights a fire in me. It helps me stay afloat. Think brave and act carefree. It enables me to take chances and create some.
The unconscious helps me build on the outside while the conscious builds me on the inside. The unconscious also humanizes me by filling me with worldly desires. The conscious dehumanizes me from these very desires and makes me hungry for a spiritual enlightening.
The unconscious dehumanizes me when logic takes over a decision to help someone.

I think they are the Yin and Yan of my soul. The Shiva and Parvati. The X and the Y chromosome.
