This workshop covers the Rightness Section of the Ability Enhancement viewing curriculum. The Rightness Section is the final section of the Ability Enhancement lineup. In this section we address misunderstood and false information as well as fixed ideas of various types. Confusion and fixidity impede mental functioning. Clearing them off restores clarity and flexibility. Because of pain, force, and confusion, someone has seized on certain ideas as fixed guideposts in life. These ideas are not changeable by reasoning alone, because they are held in place by emotional pain that results in an unwillingness or inability to face certain things. All the work that has been done up to this point on Ability Enhancement has eliminated enough emotional charge to permit the viewer to address fixed ideas directly.
All sorts of fixed ideas affect our rightness; the more rigidly fixed our ideas, the less often we will actually be correct in our thinking. One key type of fixed idea is the sort people use to assert their own rightness, while asserting the wrongness of others. Sorting these out allows a viewer a new freedom to simply be, in the present moment, and to allow others to be. The end point of the Rightness Section consists of an enhanced clarity of thought and cognitive ability, and the freedom from the need to assert one’s own rightness, as well as a new higher plateau of ability to perceive, to act effectively in the world, to interact with others, and to enjoy life.
With the freedom of perception and action achieved by going through the Ability Enhancement viewing curriculum, the viewer is set to gain more from subsequent trips through Ability Enhancement, and is more likely to obtain insights from living in and of itself.
As demonstrated through examination and supervised activities, the student will be able to:
- Use an expanded theory of learning, knowledge, and data sorting
- Increase a viewer’s ability to study and to effectively apply what s/he has learned
- Facilitate techniques of the Rightness Section
- Clarify the definitions and relationships between “rightness” and ability
- Explain the effect of fixed ideas in a person’s life and how to address them
- Discuss how the effects of words and symbols that are misunderstood or not understood on a person’s functional intelligence
- Rightness and the Theory of Learning
- The effects of charge on rightness
- The learning cycle
- Learning by the process of data sorting
- Study difficulties
- The Comprehension Program, words, phrases, and symbols
- The Rightness Section
- Theory of Fixed Ideas
- Techniques of the Rightness Section
