A Tricky Challenge

Plagued by a bizarre learning barrier I’d never seen before, I knew I had to try something fundamentally different asap. I had to stop wasting both my time and energy stuck in a revolving door of always learning the hard way — first and foremost.

Only now, after a good deal of watching these cunning intentions perform their manoeuvres over the years, would my feelings toward the matter of ‘fully understanding each experience/event’ strengthen. That is, something profound happened in an ‘understanding transformation’ or ‘evolution’, and it re-energised my situation. Another crucial game-changer unravelled since finally seeing this bad habit block life.

That’s right… I just had to take a moment to look at the flow of information without reading into it. Although, admittedly, it was hard to spot and let go of each stale learning occurrence at the beginning of this discipline because it was such a normal way of living for me. Not only that, but I also loved sharing and duplicating the habit with friends, family and anyone else nearby, who’d naturally spread the trait on.

Oh, crap… I thought to myself during the early phases.  Not only am I infected with a type of mind-spam that affects my learning, but it feels like I’m spreading it on! 

Fortunately, my subtle cutback from ‘forcing myself to understand something’ along with ‘constantly replaying information surrounding an alleged incomplete understanding’ was definitely enough to start unwinding or unlearning from what kept me in circles before. This helped to not only undo my mind-spam, but also to keep from infecting others. Even so, I haven’t even touched on the topics of information that I’m trying to learn as this discipline simply lives on another level.

Of course, I want to absorb the world in front or inline with my interests. But, by the look of it. It needs to be done without accumulating or mental-hoarding every single event — which only creates interference on upcoming experiences. Why didn’t I see this before? This is yet another way, I find, where nearly everyone else manages their learning pathways better than me.

Releasing My Understanding of Things at the Second-Hand Level

So by NOT continuing the impractical fascination of a better or finer understanding into something that had already dealt its card, I’d finally left enough quality room upstairs to energise and learn the next crucial piece of the puzzle. It was a matter of more or less getting out of my own way in the future of learning! Or by removing the puzzle from the puzzle.

I figured, whatever experiences were to follow from here, I’d have a much better chance of understanding in real-time without all the commotion behind. Therefore, my trust went into this completely backwards approach, with the trade-off being I was to let go of the replay in order to allow quality in — aka the first impression is best! Unfortunately, catching and releasing the complication proved tricky at first, as I’m so ingrained to grab hold of all the files upstairs with the aim of gaining more and more sensation.

Stop the replay
Say NO to replaying the same information over and over in order to better understand it.
