— Stretch your mind — Using the work of Byron Katie

Love is Just a four Letter word

I have heard Byron Katie say “no story no world”. So what is your story creating your world?

Unlimited thinking WD 40

Becoming Unstuck from everything

What is WD 40? It’d s spray oil we use it on almost everything which is stuck and needs to be freed from it’s rust or water damaged.

“It took them 40 attempts to get the water displacing formula worked out. WD-40®—which stands for Water Displacement and perfected on the 40th try—is still in use today.” and un-sticking all sorts of things.

So what is the point of talking about WD 40?

  1. I happen use on my bicycle chain and used lots of on my motorcycle and old VW Beetle.
  2. It took 40 tries to get it working. The only thing they knew that there is a way out of being stuck and rusted and things need to be moving again.
  3. Where is your focus. Wayne Dyer has talked about fly was not done by focusing on not flying and get iron ships to float was not done by focusing on the sinking of things. focus on getting things moving.
  4. If you can identify, the thoughts that keep you from having peace, clarity, joy and a wonderful life. You are in the beginning of the process of getting unstuck. Focusing on what is not working in your life, will give you more of what does not work and then becomes the proof that life is stuck and sucks. (And there is a book called why your life sucks by Alan h. Cohen worth reading).

Now back to WD 40 and the work of Byron Katie.

Using the JudgeYourNeighborworksheet down loadable at is the first step to identify your thoughts that are keeping you stuck (rusting and not moving). Then we apply the WD 40 that is the 4 questions and the turnarounds: to the thoughts that are keeping you stuck. And it could take 40 times or 1 time or 100 times to become unstuck.  Just think of it if the Wright brothers gave up after their first attempt. We would still be sitting on the ground wondering if we could fly? And just like in the case of developing WD 40 you never know when you suddenly become free or fly.

Applying the 4 questions and turnarounds to your stuck thoughts and then suddenly you are unstuck and free to fly. Love you Sagar give me a call to become unstuck.

    Finding Kindness & Questioning Stressful Thoughts

    If you want something in you’re life and your are not doing it. It’s your mind not allowing it. You are frozen with your thoughts. The work is a way to unfreeze the mind.

    When Katie is talking about children in this video she is talking about your thoughts. Sometimes she refers to them as scream children. And when you are kind how would you treat those screaming children? You meet them with understanding and love. And that is what writing down your thoughts does it leaves you kinder to yourself.

    Thoughts Become Things

    Today I was in a grocery store  (Albet Heijn, Museumplein, Amsterdam) and I asked the cashier how are you?

    Her answer:

    She said when people are negative they become unhappy. To have a positive outlook on life is what keeps me going and helps me take care of myself.

    So amazing, just a brief conversation and in it is everything. Love, caring, understanding, light, and awareness and support openness.

    I am still in awe of such possiblities to find wisdom.

    “No one holds more wisdom then any one else.” Byron Katie


    I have been watching Dr. Phil and i have some thoughts about how I he works with people…My thought is what is the most important thing to teach people about relating…

    Well if there is a teaching, it is to learn to stay out of your partners business…Dr. Phil and other have programs that give you step by step directions for success…

    In my own life I am learning to ask myself the question what am I believing in the moment…What do I believe I would have if my partner behaved differently…and usually I think I would have more understanding, a better relationship, peace…So what do I do to get this peace. I shout, demand, manipulate and get angry, ignore them, to have peace…I have begun to notice it doesn’t work it seems to give me what I don’t want rather then what I want…
    Since I have the work of Byron Katie or rather the work has me. I take a break breath and do the work on what I thought being angry, shouting and demanding, would give me…and I come to see that its painful for me I hurt myself, and I stop (when I can) some times I say,” lets start over”…I love when I can do that…the result seems to be, I like me better and I have what I want, which is an intimate connect with the person I am with most of the time, me…and I get to have an intimate connection with my partner…and it is none of my business how she reacts…I take care of my part and how I react…and that is more kind to me and to her…I love that…
    Thank you.
