    My point, Linum, (and I speak with tremendous respect for you, I consider you my Guru in a sense) is that when we act as judges and encourage anyone to stop thinking, we do them a disservice. When you encourage anyone not to over thnk, is that not in a sense, saying, think, but not too much, or to put it another way, think, but not too hard? However you phrase it, it seems to be saying, stop thinking at some point. I am encouraging you and everyone else to refrain from encouraging a limit on thinking.

      My interpretation of Linum comment is when you over think you become so brain centered you lose inspiration that comes from the deeper mind. This works for me as my greatest break throughs happened when I relaxed and allow the inspiration to come.

        @Isvara, what you say may be true for some but not necessarily for all.

          He who thinks too much, he who compares too much, will not have good sessions; because his mind is not clear.

            @Pspotsquirter, who is to decide what is too much? What is too much for one, may not be enough for another. We must be careful when judging others. Thinking itself means different things to different people. Over analyzing may be a problem for an individual, but when we present that idea to an individual we must be careful to explain what we mean, and that it may not really be a problem for everyone, or even for that individual,

            I think it is better to over think, or think too much, than not to think at all. I say that because it is all relative, and there is no defined line for over thinking. Therefore I urge caution when advising someone about their questioning nature. Sometimes, we are very flippant with our judging and advising.

              @Pspotsquirter, my use of the word flippant was bad. I meant it in the sense of being casual, not in the sense of being rude, or lacking respect or lacking seriousness. What I meant was that we have to be careful about giving casual blanket advice, that may or may not be appropriate to an individual, without making clear that our observation may not apply to a particular individual, and may not be the correct advice in every situation.

              I think it would be better to ask Bunk to think about his questioning. We should ask Bunk to consider the possibility that he may be over thinking. We also need to let him know that his questions are spot on in the sense that inquiry is good. Too often creativity is shut down when people are told they are thinking too much.

                @RayMitchell - No one is judging, no one is setting limits to thinking - I think that is a bit of a red herring. To be fair it was you who brought up both these concepts.

                The only judge of whether one has thought too much, should be one's self. The rest of us think that it is possible to think too much, not that it has actually happened.

                All the best to you

                  @Linum, I am not here to place blame, or to accept it for anything. I am just telling you and everyone to please don't encourage people to limit thinking, which is what, I think, is meant by encouraging people not to over think.

                      Think, but not DURING the session, then it's all about feeling.
                      To come back again to my XYchromosome analogy. Research has shown that more intelligent women often find it hard to orgasm during sex(possibly coz they're more in their head than in their body). So, when stimulating the female(X/anus) part, turn of the (thinking)man part and turn on the (feeling) female part
                      Make sense?
                      Nah, didn't think it would

                        Agreed @Ehm, think all you want, but when in session, it is time to feel. That is an opinion. If someone wants to take that advice, then do so. But, it is not a must. I say this to Bunk and others who may have similar questions. If you want to think during a session, do so. But, based on my own personal experience, I find that thinking during a session is counter productive. However, for you, it may actually help. Do what works for you. Listen to the advice of others, then do what works for you.

                          @RayMitchell,
                          Perhaps we could add another line to Ecclesiastes 3 : 1-8
                          "There is a time for everything..."
                          a time to think and a time to feel, a time to Aneros and a time to not.

                          IMHO, Aneros time is a time to feel not a time to think, outside your Anerosession is a time to think, analyze, reflect and plan.
                          Good Vibes to You !

                            Perfectly stated IMHO! This line of thinking has been validated time and again during my short journey, and it is soooo accurate!
