Comments & Discussions

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

When you are studying a subject you are inflowing information from other people’s observations. That inflow must be balanced by an outflow of your own observations. So, the activity of study must include comments and discussion about what you are studying.

The information that you are inflowing is getting assimilated in your mental matrix. It must lead to confirmations, realizations, disagreements or awareness of anomalies. You may want to summarize them as comments while you are studying. These will be useful when you review the materials, or when you have an opportunity to discuss the materials with somebody.



It is helpful to summarize the main thought of the section you are studying and add it in a different color at the end of it. Later you can can read just the main thoughts and get a pretty good idea of the study materials. For example, see: THE BHAGAVAD GITA: Chapter 2.



Note that you may be able to resolve many anomalies by clearing up words from a dictionary, and by looking up relevant references on the Internet. But the anomaly of missing information may be addressed later in the materials you are studying. So, make a note of the anomaly in your comments. You can always come back and revise your comments.



You may certainly add to your comments any specific point that you would like to discuss further. You also write down your opinion on that point. Discuss data that is apparently missing, contradictory, or arbitrary in your opinion. It is best to be objective about the points you pick. For some tips on discussions, see Mindfulness Discussions.
