Double negatives and confusion.

Wow, 3 posts in one day. Just wanted to share with you a couple of methods of bypassing critical factor/thinking courtesy of Igor. Double negatives and confusion.
Now, it’s not right that you always take the things I left over because the right way to do things is sometimes the one way which is left over when people start thinking about things.
Now if you come to a fork in the road, you can turn left or you can turn right. People may sit and wonder which one is the right way to take but when you eliminate the wrong ways, the one that is left must be the right
way to take.
So you don’t have to think about left and right anymore but so much more as what’s left over is always the right thing to do.
Now think about what I just said. If you're not confused by it.

The next confusional pattern is double negations or double negatives.
The mind finds it very difficult to actually deal with negatives because negations
don’t actually exist in the real world.

If I say to you, “I don’t have a car,”… – the thing that you have to think about first is the car. Then you have to negate it and get rid of it.
Okay?
So if I tell you that
 “I don’t have a car that doesn’t work,”…
– now you have to work twice as hard because there are two negations that you have to work in.
But if I tell you,
“I can't not have a car that doesn’t work any better than you can relax now.”

• “You can relax now,”

You see, everyone has had the experience of forgetting to remember things in the past but the only times you remember what you forgot is when it was something worth remembering that you didn't.
Really, it’s your unconscious mind’s job to remember what is worth remembering and forgetting what you should not remember and when you do that your mind will be free to remember only those things that you didn't have to forget because you're still learning new things.
You really don’t have to remember to remember what you find useful. You don’t even have to remember not to forget what you really liked. Just forget to remember the things that you no longer need in your life and you’ll remember everything else.
And if there’s one thing worth remembering it is to really let your unconscious mind sort all this complicated stuff out for you. After all, that is its job.
Your job is to simply sit comfortably and remember a more pleasant time while you forget all of these tedious things that you really don’t make sense now.
So go ahead and drift down memory lane for a while, while your unconscious mind remembers to sort out all the things that you can forget now because that way, you’ll find it easier to remember the good things that are always worth remembering.
So breathe deeply because you can relax now, in..........and out.........
