Cognitive fusion = Wrong view
"When you start practicing you have to keep reminding yourself that thoughts are just thoughts, feelings are just feelings. As you become more experienced you will gradually understand the truth of this. But as long as you keep identifying with your thoughts and feelings, ie if you keep clinging to the view 'I am thinking' or 'I am feeling', you will not become able to see things as they are. You cannot see reality if you have a wrong view, if you see things through a veil of ignorance."
