sorry, I was away again, teaching at a summer academy out of town. But now I should be at home for the most part of the next few weeks and I'm eager to do more exercises. I've tried the Palm Flipping Exercise a few times. Here are my observations:
I don’t know. It’s happening for sure, but if I don’t go to thoughts I can’t find out how it is controlled from direct experience…How is the movement controlled?
NoDoes a thought control it?
I can’t locate a controller anywhere in my direct experience. A thought might pop-up suggesting that my brain is the controller. But that’s just a thought and I don’t have ANY evidence in my direct experience that that is actually the case…Can a ‘controller’ of any description be located?
I can’t find such a point. The only things I can find, are the sensations of the movement and thoughts appearing. There’s no evidence in direct experience that the two are linked in the way suggested.How is the decision made to turn the hand over? Track any decision point when a thought MADE THE DECISION to turn the hand over and the hand turns over immediately.
I don’t know. It just happened. One hand moved. First the right hand and then later the left hand.Who or what chose which hand - the left or right hand for the exercise?
NoCan you find a separate individual or anything that is choosing when to turn the palm up or down?
