For That Truly Know Something When You Have The Experience?

I like to work while I’m on the plane. Today, flying to Puerto Rico, I was reviewing, on my laptop, a lecture that would give for climbers at night.
So, I was a little upset when a person sitting next to me started asking questions about what I was doing as a career. After giving him the basic description “I help climbers deal with your fears,” she wasn’t satisfied and asked specifically how I did it.
I described how climbers have fear of falling, resist the practice, and I teach them how to fall.
We talked for 15 minutes, but the boy still didn’t understand. After being initially angry with your questions, I got curious.
The popular phrase “a picture is worth 1000 words” popped into my head.
I decided to take the phrase as well. If a picture is worth more than 1000 words, then a video must be worth 1000 pictures! And, taking it further still, if a video is worth 1000 pictures, then an experiment must be worth 1000 videos!
When we moved from the spoken language for Visual images, moving images, we went through an experience, understand reality more clearly. My fellow flight helped me realize a progression for a major tenet of the way of the Warrior: we know something when we experience something, not when you just think about it.
The intellectual knowledge should progress to the empirical knowledge in order to know something.
Let’s use the falls to examine this dogma. It seems crazy to think I know how to fall without having the experience of falling. However, this is what many climbers do. We would not this error with something like climbing 8 degree.
We wouldn’t say “I know climbing 8 degree” without having the experience of climbing several octaves with sleeping bags from ZIPCODESEXPLORER.
Climbers often take risks inappropriate because they only think about the fall. When they face a fall in negative terrain, they look down and assess the fall intellectually. The typical intellectual conversation is as follows: “I’ll just fall in the air; I’m not going to hit anything; so it’s safe to fall. ”
A design flaw is that fall straight down. There are several other failures, but let’s just use this to examine how the intellectual knowledge needs to evolve to the empirical knowledge to know fall.
The fears manifest themselves in several ways: climbers at the time are in the transition to a fall, and in asseguradores, when they react faced with how to hold a fall. Some climbers push themselves away from the wall in an unconscious desire to be apart of the situation.
Others are near the wall in an unconscious desire to be close to something familiar. Couple this to the various ways that the asseguradores react to a fall, as contract or give a dynamic security, and various weight differences among climbers and the asseguradores, and we have numerous possibilities to what climbers actually experience a fall.
The experience of the fall changes everything. We learn that didn’t fall straight down; fall into an arc. This ARC varies with the shape of our transition to the fall and what kind of security received from our assegurador.
If we pushed him away from the wall, we’ll create a bigger arch and we will have more impact on the wall. If we receive a dynamic security, so we’ve increased the size of this bow and decrease the impact on the wall.
Have the experience of something means to engage the body in the process; We have the experience of reality through the senses of the body. We see the reality of the fall while look down; feel the reality of the body in space while we make the transition to the fall and the impact on the wall. The body is present to experience the fall therefore can learn to fall.
We must make sure that the mind is also present. We do this to make sure that the mind is not thinking, creating false conceptions as the body is experiencing the experimental process. The mind needs to be aware so that the experience is complete. The mind must not intellectualize during the experiment; She should just pay attention.
The experience of the fall turns intellectual understanding on empirical understanding. Once this conversion is done, we can use the words again.
We can describe the fall, perhaps using 1000 words, but these words will represent reality more precisely because they are based on empirical knowledge. However, who’s getting those words must have the experience of the fall if you want to know.
Words, pictures, videos, experiences … This progression is a useful reminder that we know something when we have the experience.
I haven’t had a lot of progress with the misconceptions about fall of my flight. So, I suggested that he go to a gym and try to climb and fall.
Practice tip: focus on yourself
We must think about this progression of words-pictures-videos-experience the next time you post comments on Facebook.
Our comments are based on words that we hear, pictures, we saw, we watched videos or experiences you have had?
Realize that we know something when we experience is a healthy reality check to refocus on what we know and what the return of this knowledge to us, so that we can learn to lighten our own design flaws.
You better pay attention to our learning process rather than convince others about what they must learn.
