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.

Thought Thursday: I’ll Take Care of my Myself

The Work on Money

You haven’t been taking care of yourself; you’ve been taking care of your money. You think, I’ll take care of myself after I have enough money, after I get it secured. I’ll be happy then. And ‘then’ never comes – Byron Katie

Thought Thursday: Self-Realization


Attachment to a thought means believing that the thought is true. When we don’t inquire, we assume that a thought is true, though we can’t ever know that. The purpose of attachment is to keep us from the realization that we are already truth. We don’t attach to things; we attach to our stories about things.  —Byron Katie
