NOTES ORGANIZED ALPHABETICALLY

  • Acceptance ends no-ting.

  • Being in the present moment ends no-ting.
  • Control is no-ting.
  • Coping never uses no-ting.
  • Double payoffs exist for no-ting because you can both know better by knowing what should have been and know better by knowing what should be.
  • Dull thinking can be a result of needing a place of escape from the problem of no-ting about no-ting. You channel nothing so can do and understand nothing: safe from the knowing no-ting.

  • Ego wants to keep no-ting forever since it is ego candy, and nothing tastes better to the ego.

DISPUTE NO-TING

  1. Energy: What kind of energy or power is it using, and does it increase?
  2. Sensation: What kind of experiences does it result in and seek?
  3. Mind: What kind of thinking does it exist on and promote?
  4. Social: What are the effects on your relationships?
  5. Work: Does it hinder your creativity and productivity at school or work?

From Daily Dose of Discernment: #Don’t #Don’t: 2017-05-27

• You cannot do something that does not exist; therefore, stop telling yourself not to do something, because that leaves you no choice but to do it.

• You cannot do something that does not exist; therefore, stop telling yourself not to forget something, because that leaves you no choice but to forget it.

• You cannot think something that does not exist; therefore, stop telling yourself not to think something, because that leaves you no choice but to think it.

• When you demand that you do not do something, you are demanding that you do “not” or nothing; therefore, your pressure to do must release on the only thing available: doing that which you do not want to do.

• You can use “do not” for information, facts, knowledge, and rules; but refrain from using “do not” for actions, behaviors, directions, practices, and procedures.


  • REBT practitioners update your practice for greater effectiveness & efficiency with Not.
