You write “I get confused…when I think too much….” (I hope that isn’t an unfair extraction; if you feel it is, then at least it is not intentionally so!) That reminds me of Temple Gendlin speaking of her thinking in images… and Dr Rosalind Bergemann arguing for the Asperger person does not primarily focus on ‘one thing’ (and is therefore odd) – but sees ‘it all’ and (may have difficulty in selecting what other people think is relevant; my words).
I think somewhere in there may be an answer I, too, am working on. Namely how to bring our felt sense up to same level of recognition as our conceptual thinking. Things like self-designed free-style chi gong, abstract painting and more recently a dab at writing poetry are helping me to get my mind round this one. and another thing: As part of professional development I was very fortunate to come across a concept of free systemic formation/constellation (German: Aufstellung). Done in a person-centred way, I find that it helps me to develop, appreciate my intuition about decisions and things – not without a pinch of healthy skepticism sometimes – the method helps me to bring my instincts to the same level as my reflection (which I am prone to do until the cows come home – can be fun, but not always effective), and together they help clarity, if mostly way below big ‘eureka moments. Maybe the consciousness we enter when making art is the key here, for further investigation? Thank you. Would not have thought all this without your inspiring article!
