NOTES ORGANIZED ALPHABETICALLY

Acceptance ends no-ting.

Adults are lost in no-ting.

All active psychological controls are no-ting.

Because of tasting something to be sour, bitter, or harsh you switch, not because of rules or 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 results as 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 does not care about anything but feeding itself pride and avoiding eating shame and no-ting is pride.

Ego loves no-ting because it results in pride; therefore, ego ignores all the other results of no-ting which are only negative for your life.

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

Focus on doing good, not stopping bad. This is one way to avoid no-ting.

How is the quality and depth of your experience, pleasure, sensations, sensing, etc., without and with no-ting?

If something is wrong or goes wrong, then look for the no-ting that is causing the problem.

Instead of no-ting: redirect, reduce, refocus, switch.

No-ting provides an illusion of power and control and so pride.

No-ting puts you in touch with and increases the negative.

Not how you feel about no-ting, but how you experience it will help you see it for what it is.

Peace is anti no-ting.

Pride payoffs motivate no-ting to continue despite it delivering the opposite results of those that are desired.

The mind becomes no-ting.

The only no-ting available is nothing.

We hate no-ting when it is turned against us, but love it when we can turn it against others.

We prefer no-ting to love, pease, kindness, happiness, peace, success, and relationships.

We want things to fail so we can no-t them and other people.

What are you intending, wanting, wishing for, desiring, and emotionally seeking when you are no-ting?

What is your motivation for no-ting since its results are always bad?

When are you going to hold no-ting responsible?

  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.
