Pre-conceived Notions


Reference: Mindfulness Meditation



Reduce pre-conceived notions.


To train the student to BE there comfortably and face pre-conceived notions. The idea is to get the student to BE there and not do anything else but BE there.


The student must have completed Exercise MM 1: Mental Chatter & Anxiety

The student must have read and understood: The Universal Viewpoint



Establish yourself in meditative posture. Comfortably perceive whatever is presented by your environment and the mind. Hold still, watch the flow of your breath, not attach yourself to passing attitudes, emotions, sensations and pains, and see what would happen.

When a problem or a situation show up become very alert. Ask yourself,

“How would this situation look different from a universally broad viewpoint?”

Keep looking at that situation with that question at the back of your mind. Simply BE there and do nothing else but BE there.

As you persevere in being there the situation may shift around and the pre-conceived notion may come to view. This may produce many realizations.

Each session may be 20 to 30-minute long; but a session can be as long as two hours. You may continue with this exercise over several sessions until you reach the end of this exercise.


When you can BE there comfortably and PERCEIVE and have reached a major stable win, the exercise is passed.
