One day the Buddha was walking with Ananda, his favorite disciple. He was deeply engrossed in answering a question. A fly landed on Buddha's forehead and he vigorously shooed it away. At that moment he stopped what he was doing and repeated the act. Ananda asked him, "Why are you shooing the fly away again, when it has gone?" Buddha replied, "I was so engrossed in your question that I was unconscious of what I had done. I am doing it again, to know it consciously."

-Christopher S. Hyatt, Birth of the New Tantric Human

Consciousness of our powers augments them.
