Practice is not just conscious exercise.
It is a small part of the whole.
The movement of one’s body and mind is repeated without awareness.
Scientific studies have shown that 95% of our daily life is subconscious behavior.
For example, Dr. Timothy Wilson’s research on Adaptive Subconscious clearly demonstrates that.
We usually don’t call it practice – when we do it without purpose or awareness.
But it’s true – 95%.
The pie chart is a summary of the whole, all told.

The frame that holds the whole together is consciousness or intention.
They make up 5% of the whole when you add them together.
Ninety-five percent of practice is subconscious.
