I really enjoyed the article “as one thinks, so shall one feel, and how to change all of that”..
My mind did not know how to separate fact from installed fictions.
It is exactly this missing process that has been misused so broadly over the years, and even more so obviously today with the general public.
... and learn how to use my eyes to see, my ears to hear, and my body to feel what actually... is.
Potentially, the missing process you describe is called “mentalisation”, there is a therapy dedicated to reigniting it within people, mentalisation based therapy.
Some of us have been staunch in a practice of “non judgement”, when sometimes it was judgement that was needed to keep us safe. Knocking that practice out is a good one too, but takes a while working through guilt and potential internalizing of any judged characteristics.
