Research and Havingness

One virtue of being an Independent is that one can study and research

ideas that, in the Church, are deemed heretical. The freedom to

research does not guarantee successful results. Help on the way comes

from study tech and from something else: remedying havingness.

When you are about to do some research (concepts, lookingness), run

some havingness beforehand, either solo or audited. It doesn't have to

be a big auditing session. Probably the simpler the process, the

better, with no significances. Even our elegantly simple friend

Locational (which improves havingness among other things) is of value

- spotting things around the room, touching the furniture,


Successful research can sometimes unmock ideas and masses before one

reaches a beneficial conclusion. Treasured oldies can unmock before

they are replaced when one is successful.

So a loss-of-havingness sensation may occur, or a sensation can arise

comparable to that which comes from misunderstoods. To remedy

havingness beforehand can get one into research smoothly and be of

assistance during the research session.

Prior running of havingness may handle everything. But if a rather

steep loss of it occurs during the research program, it should be

remedied on the spot. At this point, you could run another auditing

session on havingness. Or - get out of the chair and go for a walk.

Look at the countryside, people and buildings. Listen to the sounds

around you - even if it is the grumble of the brakes of an articulated

truck on a main road. Feel the breeze on your face. Stomp your feet a

little as you walk. This is a less formal way to remedy havingness:

Present Time!

Of course, many among us have pretty good havingness anyway and could

ignore this advice with impunity. Do research and unmock some stuff

and have a ball regardless. But some research, while not cleaning a

clean, will do away with things of the "Everyone Knows" variety. And

while to discover one of those can be a moment of delight and F/N,

that's not always so.

However good one's case shape, it can be beneficial to run havingness

in a straightforward way before and sometimes during a research
