Half seen through

 

I am rarely aware of consciously/actively believing a thought. More often, I notice that I seem to consciously recognize it as a thought while still believing at an emotional or more primal level.

In these cases, it seems that the thought is half seen through. I have some insights in it as a thought, often at a quite general level, while I also still believe it in certain ways.

The remedy here is the usual one: Identify the belief and underlying beliefs and take these to inquiry. As I examine it in more detail, with real and specific examples, a new context is created where it no longer so easily can be taken as true.

– general insight/conscious view (often insight generalized into belief) vs detailed examination, genuine examples
– half seen through, may appear as if (a) consciously know (half true), (b) still emotional/bodily/primal belief
– identify, inquire
– tre + inquiry
— tre supports the process of inquiry, reorganization at mental/emotional/physical/life levels
— inquiry “completes” the tre process, see through the beliefs creating tension/stress/trauma

Here is a typical experience for me these days:

Whatever stories surface are recognized as stories at a conscious and surface level. As sometimes helpful practical pointers and also not true.

At the same time, some stories are held as a belief at what appears as an emotional and more primal level.

In other words, I can see in a general way how the stories are not true, but there is still more to examine and see in a more specific and detailed way – making it more real for me.

In addition to identifying these and any underlying beliefs and take them to inquiry, I can also use TRE (neurogenic tremors) to invite any tension around it to release. I sometimes naturally shake during and after the inquiry process, and can also bring a particular belief to mind and invite tremors.

I find that beliefs fuels fear, and fear in turn creates tension and trauma and also fuels beliefs. So by inviting this tension, trauma and fear to release out of the body, there is less fuel for the beliefs.

Shaking alone may leave the beliefs more or less as they were, at least as a potential, so inquiry supports and in a sense “completes” the shaking process. And shaking supports the mental, emotional and physical reorganization that occurs through the inquiry process.

All of this is also a story, it’s not really true and only moderately true in an everyday sense. And yet, it seems a helpful story or pointer right now.

Whatever stories surface are recognized as stories on a conscious and surface level.

And yet, many are still held as beliefs at an emotional and more primal level.

So I can identify and take these to inquiry. If they are held as beliefs – including at an emotional level – it’s because it can be more clear, they can benefit from a more thorough inquiry and examination.

And I can invite the tension around these beliefs to release through trembling and shaking (TRE). The fear and trauma which fuels and gives energy to the belief, can soften and release.

And none of this is really true (no story is really true), although they appears as useful – and interesting – stories and pointers right now.

– stories recognized as stories on conscious/surface level (almost cannot remember a time it wasn’t like that)
– still held as beliefs at emotional/bodily/primal level
– inquiry (if still held as belief, even if “just” at deep/primal levels, then b/c not quite clear yet) + TRE (release the tension/stress around it, and especially fear/trauma behind the belief, fueling the belief)
– and none of this is really true of course (no story is really true), although appear as useful stories/pointers right now
