It is something I told myself.
From these quotes I see we are making progress. You are doing very good.It was a thought trying to make sense of the direct experience of dizziness.
This was about you trusting your rational mind that being stuck in thought. You say it is clearer but not totally. Can you be more specific? What makes it clearer? And what makes it not totally clear? You will watch more for what exactly? I am trying to make you express yourself as concrete and specific as possible. Being vague leaves wiggle room.Yes it is becoming clearer to me, not totally - I will watch more for this so I do see it more clearly.
Yes it makes sense - doing it in this way makes it clear that labelling is something that I do all the time.
Very good!! Thank you for all your effort and hard work Clare.it does show me that I get lost and involved in thoughts and labelling all the time. All the time.
What I am trying to do, is have you report on your actual experience (raw sensory information, thoughts and emotions = the actual reality) and not on your thoughts about your experience (labelled information = your ideal reality, ideal as in made of ideas, thoughts).I am almost a little bit lost as to what you are wanting in terms of a description of my experience.
In the labelling exercise, you only have actual experience (smell, color, taste, ...). When you report back, make sure that you report back from actual experience and not from reasoning and thought. We want to lift the veil to see what it is behind it. Your thoughts about reality are the veil hiding the actual experience. Does that make sense?
