Jean’s Favourite Dr. Glasser Quote
Stations of the Mind: New Directions for Reality Therapy, William Glasser, MD.
Universal Oneness – Meditation: Dr. Glasser says:
I personally see the tenth order as a place where essentially we control for nothing but, since this is so hard, perhaps in practice we reach the tenth order is we can control successfully for one very special idea, as when we practice Zen or some others forms of meditation. . . . In this no no-error situation, my guess is that we actually become aware of our reorganization system as it idles along in the background, because with no-error we are not redirecting or acting on new information. My concept is that our reorganization system never turns off completely, and when it alone is operating, as it may be during deep, peaceful, no-error meditation, we experience it as a creative sense of oneness with ourselves and the universe, which we call transcendent (pp. 114-115).
