My (partial) response to an email from Jerry Freeman this morning:
Very cool though that we were both writing about the same thing at about the same time. This too was reflected in my student’s life (I was offline and didn’t know about her experience until after I had published that blog post). She had a friend visiting who had a psychotic break-down during her visit. Michelle, my student, was witnessing someone who’s Interior world was more real to her than her Exterior world was which, synchronistically, was a key part of my blog post (though unbeknownst to me at the time I was writing it), and was exactly what Michelle needed to hear:
> “To strengthen the Witness Level, one must learn to see (and therefore distance oneself) from their thoughts—one must learn to see the difference between the Interior world of the Mind and the Exterior world of Reality.”
I thought at the time of writing the above that it was a little clunky, that it was really only step 1 in strengthening the Witness (step 2 being one must see their Interior in the same way as they see their Exterior), but I heard Her (TaoGodHer’s) whisper and left it as is. As it turned out, confusing the Interior world with the Exterior world was what was being reflected in Michelle’s friend’s experience (though I didn’t know that at the time). Amazing how this stuff works.
