Hypnosis Rule #4: Opposing ideas cannot be held at the same time.

Your mind cannot hold opposing ideas at the same time.

This does not mean more than one idea cannot be remembered or harbored in your memory; it refers to the conscious mind recognizing an idea. Many people try to hold opposing ideas simultaneously. A man might believe in honesty and expect his children to be honest, all the while engaging daily in slightly dishonest business practices. He may try to justify by saying, “All of my competitors do it; it’s an accepted practice.” However, he cannot escape the conflict and the effect upon his nervous system of trying to hold opposing ideas at the same time.
