Comments & Discussions

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing



When you are studying a subject you are inflowing information from other people’s observations. when you are writing comments you are outflowing your observations about that information. This balances your inflow with your outflow. Such a balance is important.

These comments will be useful when you review the materials on a subject, or when you have an opportunity to discuss the materials with somebody. Discussion is another form of outflow.



You may certainly raise questions in your comments that you would like to resolve. Discussion may be a good way to resolve those questions.

However, there are certain rules to discussion. These rules are as follows:

  1. Do not defend a viewpoint, instead look for some anomaly generated by it.
  2. Focus on the data being presented and not on the person presenting it.
  3. In a disagreement never call the other person wrong, instead provide further clarification regarding your viewpoint.
  4. Furthermore, in a disagreement, ask for clarification and, when it is provided, consider it with mindfulness.
  5. Do not complain that the other person is not answering your question, instead discuss what you are expecting.
  6. Always focus on anomalies and isolate them as best as you can. Never be discouraged if others are taking time to recognize it.

These rules are important. Without them, a proper discussion will not take place. For further details on what a discussion is, and why these rules are necessary, please see Mindfulness Discussions.

Comments and discussions are an excellent way to resolve anomalies.
