“A MIND UNQUESTIONED IS THE WORLD OF SUFFERING”

When we are seeking, love approval and appreciation from others we suffer.

What is The Work of Byron Katie? The Work is a process that clears the mind. It is one of the most powerful methods ever devised to end human suffering. It is simple, radical, and life changing, and it can lead to a life of freedom and joy that most of us can’t even imagine yet. Everyone can do The Work. It requires no religious, no spiritual or intellectual preparation, no belief, and no psychological acuteness?just a desire to re-known the simple truth about you. The simplest definition of The Work is: four questions and a turnaround.

The only time we suffer is when we believe a thought that argues with what is. When the mind is perfectly clear, what is is what we want. The Work reveals that what you think shouldn’t have happened should have happened. It should have happened because it did, and no thinking in the world can change it. This doesn’t mean that you condone it or approve of it. It just means that you can see things without resistance and without the confusion of your inner struggle, and with this energy you can change now what you know to change.

There are two parts to The Work of Byron Katie. The first is writing out your judgments about any stressful situation in your life. The second is investigating each written statement, using the four questions, and then turning the statement around to experience what is as true or truer.

The Work of Byron Katie is natural to us. It is the key that unlocks and releases the answers within that set us free.

One Moment in Time.

I was meeting with a friend visiting from Maui, and I walk out into the street focused on getting my bicycle. Thinking of what is the best way to get home.

And then, time stood still.

There was this man, this well dress man taking a woman, perhaps his wife out of his car and putting her in the wheel chair. And as he was helping her to get into the wheel chair she hit her hand on the door handle. And now this man was well dress wearing a very beautiful suit and bowtie perhaps he was eighty years old or older. And he stop what he was doing, went around to the front of the wheel chair and begin kissing this woman’s fingers, kissing her fingers there in the middle of this small and narrow street in the middle of amsterdam in front of a very exclusive hotel. This well dress dapper looking man, in the middle of the street kisses this woman’s fingers. You know I am so touched again, as I share this moment in time with you. To stop, to notice and express our kind nature. I am grateful to be available and present in such a moment. I looked and I also stood in the middle of the street and I tell you we were both kissing that woman’s fingers. I am so grateful. It is such a blessing. Love Sagar
