Practice, Practice, Practice.

RV is an attention management tool. With time the wandering will slow, and the focus will come.

I am a newbie and have the same question. A music instructor told me once that "Concentration is the ability to think of nothing." Does that apply here as well? For me it was a matter of letting go, so the mucisic could flow by itself. So another question comes up, how much mental 'self-talk' is accepatable? For example, Major Dames suggests asking yourself what dimensions are present when describing dimensions. If I "let-go" so that I can concentrate, I find it difficult to ask myself questions about imformation I am getting without introducing AOL's (which are already a problem). In other words, is RV strictly a receiving process or is there some dialog needed? and , when does dialog begin to interfere with focus?

Stage 1 and the S3 freehand sketch are autonomic and virtually automatic responses, respectively. S3 analytical sketches and the Site Template are simply 'connecting the dots.' However, in stages 2 and 4, the viewer does indeed 'interrogate the signal line' (technical verbiage), i.e., demanding of unconscious/superconscious to know what 'textures, colors, etc.' are present. This can be subvocalized, or even done 'out loud' (except in my RV workshops).

This helps tremendously, thank you.
