Health Sickness, and Death

Health Sickness, and Death

When you’re asleep, does your body hurt? When you’re in the worst pain and the phone rings and it’s the call you’ve been waiting for and you’re mentally focused on the phone call, there’s no pain. If you change your thinking, you change the pain – Byron Katie

Mother’s Love

Byron Katie on Parents and Children

The bottom line is that your mother does love you—there’s nothing she can do about that. Just don’t expect her to be aware of it. Your mother loves you so much that she would withhold love so you can get this thing, this self-loving thing. You can’t love her until you do that. If I hate me, I hate my mother. If I love me, I love my mother. It’s that simple.

The Perfect Amount of Money

Byron Katie on Work and Money

After I found The Work inside myself—after it found me—I began to notice that I always had the perfect amount of money for me right now, even when I had little or none. Happiness is a clear mind. A clear and sane mind knows how to live, how to work, what e-mails to send, what phone calls to make, and what to do to create what it wants without fear. Do you want your money to be safe and secure? Hopeless! Read my lips: hopeless! Banks burn, countries are bombed, people lie, they break their promises, they bend contracts. It’s hopeless, hopeless.

Thought Thursday: Reality

On Self-Realization

If you want reality to be different than it is, you might as well try to teach a cat to bark. You can try and try, and in the end that cat will look up at you and say, “meow.”  Wanting reality to be different than it is, is hopeless. You can spend the rest of your life trying to teach a cat to bark.   —Byron Katie.

Thought Thursday: How Do I Know I Don’t Need Money?

On Work and Money

When you lose something, you’ve been spared—either that or god is a sadist. How do I know I don’t need money? It’s gone! I’ve been spared: what I would have done with that money would obviously have been much less useful for me than losing it.   —Byron Katie

Thought Thursday: No One Outside of Me Can Hurt Me

Byron Katie on Love, Sex and Relationships:

Hurt feelings or discomfort of any kind cannot be caused by another person. No one outside me can hurt me. That’s not a possibility. It’s only when I believe a story that I get hurt. And I’m the one who’s hurting me by believing what I think. This is very good news. Because it means that I don’t have to get someone else to stop hurting me. I’m the one who can stop hurting me. It’s within my power.
