On average about a year into your cocoon time, based on the many successful
results of your first-hand experiences using Robert’s Process, you will know with
certainty there is no “out there” out there; that your 3D holographic total immersion
movies aren’t real; that your Infinite I is creating all your experiences for you, down to
the smallest detail; that you cannot be a victim of anyone or anything at any time; that if
you feel any discomfort, it is solely the result of your reactions and responses to your
movies, and you can run the Process in a matter of minutes – even seconds sometimes –
to locate and let go of any remaining judgments, beliefs, and opinions; and that you live
mainly in a state of awe and appreciation for the Game and all the Players you encounter.
That’s a really wonderful place to get to and be; and yet you feel you’re not done,
that there is something left to process, that you still have unanswered questions, that you
do not yet have the one true answer to “Who Am I?”, that you’re only at the point of mild
contentment with your life rather than constant enthusiasm and joy, and that you continue
to experience some moments of discomfort from time to time.
Although it produces some excellent results early on, I found Robert’s Process has
its limitations. I know of others who reached this point as well. (For a more complete
discussion of why, please see Chapter Thirty-Three, “Robert Scheinfeld,” in Part Three
of this book.)
Robert’s Process can be very effective when dealing with discomfort that seems to
come from “out there,” but it’s not as effective when you have reached the point where
there is no longer any thought of “out there” and you are more interested in looking “in
here.” That’s because judgments, beliefs, and opinions are only the tip of the iceberg; and
once you’ve gotten comfortable and been successful in letting go of them, you’re ready
for the next stage of your metamorphosis.
Underneath the judgments, beliefs, and opinions are the fears that led to them and the
layers of the ego created as a result – the false self you thought yourself to be – that
Robert’s Process simply cannot address.
At least that was true in my case.

In 2003, still inside the movie theater, I had a car accident which broke eleven bones
in my neck and back, and I came within a millimeter of being paralyzed for life. One
vertebra in my neck had to be taken out and replaced with a titanium cage, and I then
needed six months in bed to recover.
My ex-wife had been married to her new husband about three years by that time, and
his mother had also recently come to live with them. But out of their love and caring, and
going way beyond any call of duty, they put a hospital bed in their living room and that’s
where I spent those six months recovering. Then they bought a travel trailer at their own
