A woman from the Netherlands asks Byron Katie, “How do I recognize manipulation?” “Just notice,” Katie says. “Any time you’re defensive, you’re manipulating. It’s an attempt to hold an identity for yourself–an identity you want us to believe you are. Any time you feel anger or irritation, that identity is being threatened. Any time you lie, even the tiniest bit, you’re manipulating the person’s perception of the’I’ you want to be seen as. There’s an ongoing, false creation of our identity.”
I can never be more or less than what you believe me to be. —Byron Katie
