Mindful Meditation

Looking

 

The whole idea of Mindful Meditations is to apply mindfulness to selected areas of the mind. This is done after immediate unwanted conditions are handled per Mindfulness Therapy.

In “mindful meditation” one applies the discipline of mindfulness as follows.

1.    Observe without getting influenced by your expectations and desire for answers.

2.    Observe things as they are, without assuming anything.

3.    If something is missing do not imagine something else in its place.

4.    If something does not make sense then do not explain it away.

5.    Use physical senses as well as mental sense to observe.

6.    Let the mind un-stack itself.

7.    Experience fully what is there.

8.    Do not suppress anything.

9.    Associate data freely.

10.  Do not get hung up on name and form.

11.  Contemplate thoughtfully.

12.  Let it all be effortless.

.

In “mindful meditation” one looks at whatever appears in the mind in response to the meditation directive. See Memory Recall.

A good example of mindful meditation directive is provided in Rightness.

LOOKING is not thinking. In looking, one simply recognizes what is there. There is no effort to associate data or visualize the answer.

LOOKING includes the recognition of the fact that there might not be any response at all.

LOOKING includes becoming aware of all perceptions and not just visual.

LOOKING is not suppressing anything. In looking, one is being totally honest with oneself.

LOOKING at feelings, emotions and sensations simply means that you fully experience them without resisting.

LOOKING is totally non-judgmental. Any judgment belongs to the activity of thinking.

Basically, one is looking at things in the physical environment or in the mind. One is noticing them for what they are, without calling them by name, judging them, or trying to figure them out.

The purpose of looking is to get accurate input, which may then be used for closer examination.

It is the suppression of perceptions, memories, knowledge, thoughts, visualizations, etc., that causes all difficulties in life. This suppression may be addressed effectively by letting the mind un-stack itself through patient looking.

When one is looking for resolution in an area, the first action is to get rid of all suppression by letting the mind un-stack itself naturally, and not dig into the mind. With all relevant data there, the resolution is swift and effortless.

LOOKING by its nature is totally effortless. If there is any effort it comes from thinking on top of suppressed data.

Mindful meditation may quickly un-stack available responses to several meditation directives in a short time. This is OK. Such directive may become alive again at a later time and used again in meditation.

There are hundreds of meditation directives that may be obtained from Scientology. Choose those that immediately seem to produce some response. Then explore them as long as there un-stacking occurring in the mind.

The idea is to keep un-stacking the mind. If it provides a sudden relief at some point then that is just an added bonus.

    Here is the original auditing technique per Hubbard’s book “Original Thesis” (1948):

    .

    The auditor functions as an extra analytical mind of the preclear during an auditing session. The goal is to view the traumatic impressions.

    Establish personal affinity by understanding and communication on agreeable subjects. Use no drugs that affect awareness. Use no hypnotism. Give no hidden suggestions.

    Ask the person to go back to a certain incident while retaining the awareness of the subject in present time, then recount what he can of the incident.

    Drain data from his time track to present time. To locate data, observe some somatic pain and seek to discover wherein it was received.

    The somatics are employed primarily because the motor controls possess a less disturbed time track than the sensory strip. By talking to the muscles or motor controls or various bodily aches and pains, the auditor can shift them at will up and down their time track. This time track is not connected to the analytical mind and speech, but is apparently a parallel time track with greater reliability than the sensory track. Muscles can be made to tense or relax. Coughs, aches, and pains can be made to come and go simply by uttering the right words for the engrams, or the wrong words. The motor strip time track can be asked questions down to the smallest moment of time, and the area of an engram can be so located and its character determined.

    Glean data from a person’s remarks, or illogicalness, on a subject. Ask the person to dream about this data and direct him to go back to the engram causing the dream.

    Create a codified restimulator list after inquiry into the person’s life. You may find the remarks of the person about his engrams to be included in the content of those engrams.

    .

    This original Dianetics technique boils down to the following:

    (1) The goal is to view the traumatic impressions.

    (2) The procedure is to ask the person to go back to a certain incident while retaining the awareness of the subject in present time, then recount what he can of the incident.

    (3) If the incident cannot be located then use various gimmicks to find the incident.

    Steps (1) and (2) are simple and straight forward. When they work the person makes a recovery.

    The trouble all along has been with step (3). The whole Grade Chart was developed to handle this single step.

    Idenics considerably simplifies the technique for handling step (3). But it is still a problem.

    Aftere all these years of development of Dianetics and Scientology, step (3) could never be resolved. So the results are spotty, whenever steps (1) and (2) happen to work.
