The School of Byron Katie: of course, I didn’t want to go
by L.R, LCSW
I dragged my feet on going to The School. I had already done it all (or so I thought): Jungian analysis, spiritual seeking worldwide, attendance at the birth of the new age at Esalen in the ’70’s, endless variety of workshops, etc. etc. etc.
Not to mention worksheets galore with fine facilitators.
I called the School organizers up many times and asked many questions. I tried to find out who, what, where, when and how in great detail.
They seemed so vague. I didn’t want to go.
But one day I said yes.
The rest is impossible to put into words but let me say that the people, the place, what we did, what I heard, what I saw, what I felt is still burning up my suffering in the fire of love.
Not a flash but a huge, unending blaze that continuously illuminates, transforms and heals my relationship to Reality. Also known as God.
I may sound as abstract as “they” did but believe me when I say that The School has worked miracles in my heart and mind still combusting in revelations that can only be experienced directly.
And then there is Byron Katie…….
You deserve her.
Your true self.
with love, L.
