The question what is not OK about this can be used to find underlying beliefs for inquiry.
Another way to use that question is in daily life, whenever I notice even the slightest tendency to resist experience. I can ask myself what is not OK about this? What is not OK about what I am experiencing now? Or, if I see that there is something specific that is resisted, I can ask myself what is not OK about …?
In most cases, I find no reason and this invites in a shift of allowing experience as it is. Including resistance or whatever else may be there.
And if a reason comes up, I can ask the same question – what is not OK about …? And I can also investigate it more thoroughly through inquiry.
Trigger: Noticing a slight moving away from experience (as if that was possible!) in the dentist chair last week. I decided to not have novacine since it was a minor procedure, noticed some resistance to the experience, found a thought saying that “pain is not OK”, and then asked myself “What is not OK about pain?”. I couldn’t find anything, which invited in a shift into wholehearedly allow the experience.
