A man does The Work onstage with Byron Katie during her 2017 Zurich event. In English with German translation. The first statement on his Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet is “I am saddened by my father because he beat and abused me.” BK: In any situation, I really want to know what is real, and what is not, so I question the thoughts that cause my suffering. It’s my job to wake myself up to reality. The fantasy is not that pleasant, so just begin now. This is the time and the place. And what I love about sitting in silence, in The Work, is that it’s all there. Be aware that you are dreaming your past. Notice the difference between reality and imagination. Through doing The Work with Katie, the man discovers some peace in a situation that was pure horror.
“What I love about the past is that it’s over.” —Byron Katie
