The clarity, not simplicity, of this methodology is in specificity and precision in the wording of the descriptions of what to do. The complexity is in how to do it. Fortunately, I can also offer useful clarity in that area as well. Very succinct, clear, and specific help, with lots of ready-made examples.
What is required in order to get beyond our knee-jerk emotional reactions and do Real Thinking is what I refer to as Emotional Clarity. And the basis for the methodology’s approach to this is in what M Erkel identified as “The Dialectic of Hope”.

This clarity does NOT mean, “Ah, the bad emotions are gone and I can think again!”
Rather, it is the result of consciously and intentionally giving these feelings their “due” enough so that one can also “keep them in their place”.
by fully feeling them and allowing oneself to tolerate imagining as actually happening whatever one fears might happen.
This process of “giving feelings their due” drains off enough of the emotional life and death immediacy of the feelings to break up the emotional log jamb that was blocking the ability to think—to “clear the emotional air” so to speak. It also makes it possible, when appropriate, to “keep them in their place” and not allow emotions to dominate one’s immediate experience.
Unfortunately, Emotional Clarity is possibly one of the most difficult and daunting tasks around in human experience. Achieving it is not simple, nor is it obvious how to achieve it, without appropriate coaching.
