Experiences and Assumptions

What are the mismatches between assumptions (holding non-evident beliefs of any kind) and direct experiences?

How do we digest an immediate experience in our sensory systems in terms of being in sensual contact with the inner and outer world, feelings, perceptions, inclinations to think, to speak, and to act, and consciousness?

What if we apply for example the Work of Byron Katie to our experiences and their subsequent non-evident interpretations?

Inquiry: The Four Questions
and the Turnarounds
1. Is it true? (Yes or no. If no, move to question 3.)
2. Can you absolutely know that it’s true? (Yes or no.)
3. How do you react, what happens, when you
believe that thought?
4. Who would you be without the thought?

What if we hold an open stance to assumptions about which we have no evidence [at the moment …]?
Wouldn’t that be liberating, honest to ourselves, and a profound point of integrity?

What assumptions do we hold which keep us bleeding? Can’t we donate “blood” in a better ways?
