(Pause at 9:21.) Those given to such practices — constant examination of the past in order to discover what is wrong in the present — too often miss the point. Instead, they constantly reinforce the negative experience from which they are trying to escape. Their initial problems were caused precisely as a result of the same kind of thinking. A great many unsatisfactory conditions result because individuals become frightened at various periods in their lives, doubt themselves, and begin to concentrate upon “negative” aspects.

Jane’s trance had been excellent, her delivery steady and often very emphatic. “Boy, I’ve got the whole thing right there,” she said enthusiastically. “I like it when the material comes like that.
