A case of mindless and ill-disciplined?
IMHO, the mind is often very present and very disciplined.
Look at the strength of depression, anxiety, phobias, etc.
Its the content that is based on ignorance and attachment, negativity.
Many people are very mindful and disciplined about maintaining exactly what they don't want.
Laws of attraction and agreement would suggest we manifest whatever we focus on.
The unconscious cannot negate. Its a language/suggestion thing.
Beware what you tell yourself not to do.
