 A new Seeker may well talk for two hours about his entire life. A Seeker who already had a session this morning will probably give me a minute or two about what he has noticed since his last session. I don't care. He talks until he has looked at "Where he is now" and described it to his own satisfaction,​ not mine. A new Seeker may well talk for two hours about his entire life.

 The constant comparing to "where he is now" keeps bringing him into the present. The entire process works as a "​Havingness"​ process, giving him an entire universe to have. The net effect of UCP is to help him SEE THE PRESENT, MORE CLEARLY, AS IT *IS*.  This allows him to actually change his present, with a new thought. The constant comparing to "where he is now" keeps bringing him into the present.

 The ONLY thing I have ever seen go "​wrong"​ using UCP is that it stirs up "​stuff"​ from the past and the Seeker starts to *UNKNOWINGLY* DRAMATIZE that stuff. Of course, it is SUPPOSED to do that, but sometimes it turns on too hard. This can manifest in many different ways: protest, objections, complaints, criticism of the Witness, computations of "this is stupid",​ "​isn'​t working",​ "​won'​t work", "​can'​t work," ANY kind of mis-emotion,​ and so forth. This can interfere with DOING the process and STOP the session if the Witness does not SEE what is happening and correct it by simply having the Seeker LOOK at what is going on. The ONLY thing I have ever seen go "​wrong"​ using UCP is that it stirs up "​stuff"​ from the past and the Seeker starts to *UNKNOWINGLY* DRAMATIZE that stuff.

 As the Seeker achieves more familiarity with UCP, he will naturally STOP "doing it by the numbers"​ and gradually ease into simply looking at what is there. He will then only need a question when he "runs down" and isn't SURE what he should be looking at NOW. The "by the numbers"​ approach is essentially a TRAINING AID. As the Seeker achieves more familiarity with UCP, he will naturally STOP "doing it by the numbers"​ and gradually ease into simply looking at what is there.

-UCP is NOT a one-session do-once procedure. You practice it over and over again on an ongoing basis, integrating it more and more into your continuous consciousness. No one I know has ever used it up yet. As long as you DO UCP, you will continue to raise your emotional tone level and your awareness. As the Seeker becomes more familiar with the practice and what he does in his own universe to make it happen, he will become less and less dependant on commands from the Witness, and will start to run "​freestyle"​.
