I do not understand anything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place].

Apply this idea in the same way as the previous ones, without making distinctions of any kind. 2Whatever you see becomes a proper subject for applying the idea. 3Be sure that you do not question the suitability of anything for application of the idea. 4These are not exercises in judgment. 5Anything is suitable if you see it. 6Some of the things you see may have emotionally charged meaning for you. 7Try to lay such feelings aside, and merely use these things exactly as you would anything else.
