It's interesting, I was always of the opinion that conditioning tends to disappear when you become aware of it. Now I am finding that some of it does, and some of it doesn't. Being aware of your conditioning allows you to more easily find the middle way, but the habit is often to fall back into it.
Adyashanti was saying in a short teaching on the unconditioned self that you cannot become totally unconditioned, that we live all the time with conditioning. But that the unconditioned lives alongside the conditioning layer that society tends to put on you. That in a way it is pointless to try and become free of conditioning.
But it seems to me we need to be aware of our conditioning, some level of knowing where our impulses come from is important. And then we need to become aware of the unconditioned.
