When following the discipline of mindfulness, you do not interfere with the mind. You simply observe mind’s reaction to the command given. Therefore, there is no effort when you are running a recall process. You simply observe if a recall comes up in reaction to a command.

When there is no reaction, there would be no recall. To make sure that the recall is not suppressed by the noise in the mind, simply meditate on the command for a reasonable length of time. If there is still no recall then simply move to the next command, or to the next step. Do not assume that there must be a recall.  The recall will appear in the mind all by itself without much effort if it is there.

COMM RECALL PROCESS

“Comm” stands for communication. Communication is the process of exchanging ideas, considerations, information and data. Communication requires that there must be some ability to freely make considerations. For real communication to occur, there must be an honest intention to communicate, duplicate and understand. It is through communication only that emotions are experienced, and reality is perceived.

This comm recall process resolves any fixed attention on past or future communications. There is only one command:

“Recall a Communication”

Before you run this command, briefly meditate on what communication really is. Then meditate over this command over and over again, until it is flat. At this point any fixed attention on communication should have disappeared.

EXHAUSTION

According to Hubbard, this is a simple, very effective version of a work process. In this process you meditate on exhaustion.

NOTE: Generally, you run a process to handle some fixed attention. By meditating for a few minutes on a process, you’ll quickly know if the process is the right one for you to run.

You run this particular process when you have experienced work-related exhaustion and have attention fixed on it. Repeating the command in meditation may bring up new details. You run the process till it is flat, meaning no more new details are coming up in meditation.

“Recall exhaustion.”

NOTE: Hubbard used the “floating needle” phenomenon on the E-meter to determine the end of a process. However, the “floating needle” is often hard to spot when there are other concerns crowding the mind. It is much easier to notice if the state of fixed attention for a particular item has disappeared or not. When using the mindfulness approach, you use the disappearance of fixed attention to determine the end of a process. Keep in mind that you can always run a process again as needed.

KNOW TO MYSTERY RECALL PROCESSES

“Know to Mystery” is a scale that parallels the viewpoint scale of “Objectivity to Subjectivity”. One is objective when one knows. One is subjective when one succumbs to speculation upon being confronted with a mystery.

When running this process, you start from the lowest level of “unconsciousness” and work your way up through the levels of waiting, mystery, sex, etc., until you reach the highest level of “knowing”.

At each level you are resolving some sort of fixation. If you meditate at a level for few minutes and find no fixations, simply move to the next level. You go through this whole sequence of processes several times, until all of them are flat.

The first process is,

“Recall an unconsciousness.”

Unconsciousness is a condition wherein the organism is uncoordinated to greater or lesser degree only in its analytical process and motor controls. You meditate on unconsciousness to see if any instances of such condition come up. If so then re-experience those moments, or periods in time. Run the process until it is flat.

The next process is,

“Recall waiting.”

Waiting is inactivity or being in a state of repose, until something expected happens. You meditate on waiting to see if any instances of such condition come up. If so then re-experience those moments, or periods in time. Run the process until it is flat.

The next process is,

“Recall a mystery.”

A mystery is anything that remains unexplained or unknown. The anatomy of Mystery is an inability to predict, followed by terrific confusion and then total blackout. The person just shut it all off and said, “I won’t look at it anymore”. Mystery is the level of always pretending there’s something to know earlier than the Mystery. There really is nothing to know back of a Mystery, except the Mystery itself. In this process you meditate on mystery and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall sex.”

When a person thinks he is not going to survive, he will go into the “sexing-ness band”. If you starve cattle for a while they’ll start to breed, and if you feed them too well, they’ll stop breeding. This shows that the fixation on sex is closely associated with the sense of survival. In this process you meditate on any fixation related to sex for survival and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall eating”

Animals eat animals to stay alive. This is their level of knowledge. Here we have fixation on eating and the knowledge associated with it is very condensed. This is what we understand as the dog eat dog world. One has no appreciation of other people and things other than as means for their own survival. In this process you meditate on any fixation related to eating to survive and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall a symbol.”

A symbol contains mass, meaning and mobility and it is in motion relative to some orientation point. At this level a person figures with symbols. His sense of knowledge is very literal, and it doesn’t go any deeper than the surface. In this process you meditate on any fixation on symbols and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall thinking.”

At this level a person is fixated on thinking.  He is, forever, trying to figure things out. There is no progress because he cannot work or act. This is the “figure-figure” case. In this process you meditate on any fixation on thinking and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall an effort.”

At this level a person got to touch everything and feel everything before he can know anything. He’ll get a mental image picture of a past incident in order to get an idea of what is happening to him in the present. He cannot observe for himself. In this process you meditate on any fixation on effort and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall an emotion.”

At this level we have to have knowledge by emotion. A person has all kinds of emotions about things. He knows things by his emotional reaction to them. In this process you meditate on any fixation on emotion and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall looking.”

At this level we have to look to find out as opposed to simply knowing. In this process you meditate on any fixation on looking and not simply knowing and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall knowing about.”

At this level a person has indirect knowledge of something as opposed to knowing it intimately. In this process you meditate on any fixation on things you only know about indirectly and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall not-knowing.”

There are things that we don’t know anything about and use speculation in their place. Then we start to believe that speculation to be the reality. In this process you meditate on any fixation on knowledge that is speculation only and flatten the process.

The next process is,

“Recall knowing.”

There are things that you are so intimately familiar with that they have become part of your nature. You don’t even notice them. In this process you meditate on things that have become second nature to you and flatten the process.
