Sitting through confusion without blinking
One experience that has been with me for a couple of weeks is the
ability to note the sensation of confusion and not be carried away by
it. Before I would get confused and basically resent that, and go on
a self-pity trip, or on a forceful resisting, trying to focus hard on
specific things that cause the confusion.
Now it's possible to just ride the wave. Confusion feels like a ball
in the center of perception. It's visual representation is a like a
glowing ball of twine. It decays over a couple of seconds. Not
resisting the initial unpleasantness causes a light feeling of bliss
and freedom when it is fading.
