INTO THE MIND OF SUFFERING
Journeying with Byron Katie in South Africa and Namibia

Ever since Byron Katie's final presentation at the…

Fear brought me to Byron Katie in the first place. It brings many. I know that now. Fear once brought Katie, herself, into a prison of greed and rage and numbing drugs and foods. I still feel pain when I tell the story of her fear and the death she died because of it. Then, because of my pain, I know that my mind continues to seduce me into fears of my own. "Do The Work," Byron would say. "Uncover the lie and live in what is Real."
Fear is the belief that what is Real will harm us.… Continue

have you realised the self?
No one can realize the self. And what self would that be? No one exists or can exist to realize the self without defining the self that it realized, or the self that has realized the “it” that it believes itself to be. The I-know mind that would say, “Yes, I have realized the self” is in that moment stuck in its limitedness yet again.
Look at these statements, angel, look closely, be with them in… Continue

I have been watching the two candidates telling the American people about how they are more qualified than the other. I know they are both telling lies. And that makes me angry.
What happened to the truth?
How do you decide? How can you tell if what they're saying is true? The media isn't much help either. They seem biased.
I'm so sick of this charade, I'm thinking about not voting at all. What can I do to clear my mind? How can I use The… Continue

From Facilitator of The Work, Kondwani, in Africa:
(Taken from byronkatie.com)
The whole of last week I was doing the work with women in Malawi. Stella, in the green golf shirt has been inviting friends to read The Little Book and telling them what The Work is all about. I facilitated two women last week and they are free from their problem. One of them was abandoned by her husband 16 months ago. She is left with baby twins, about 8 months each. She was married some three… Continue

April 30, 2009 ( from: byronkatie.com)
About two years ago I read Loving What Is and began my Work journey, this never ending internal life. After listening to the audio of the book, and subsequent audios, I sent you a letter, which ended up on the Parlor. I had quoted a section of the book, which I just could not at all understand at the time. That part about "When you get it, they'll get it. That's the law! It must be so" "They will follow."… Continue

"I do everything possible to end the war where I am internally, and the war around me ends immediately. Bigger things happen as a result of this—huge things. The troops in Iraq, just like all of us in the world (there is no them and us in this scenario), only have the power to do everything possible to end the war where they are. The way we end wars on this planet, our “defenses,” exactly mirror how we (the bad guy) start or create the war. This keeps us stuck and perpetually… Continue

I was a participant at the last School ( The School for The Work of Byron Katie) and am still full of gratitude for this great experience. I have invested a lot in my process of personal growth and spiritual development up to now, but what you gave me in the School certainly made it the best and most effective thing I have ever done. I got exactly the right tools for the rest of my life and I have the option now to explore to the depths the question “Who am I without my story?” and to find… Continue

Between April and June 1994, an estimated 800,000 Rwandans were killed within a 100 days. It was a genocide of Tutsis perpetrated by the Hutus.
We have received several letters and emails from you, our dear readers, asking us to explain more about Rwanda, and how The Work can be used to help Rwandans.
The five Rwandans came to The School of The Work saying they were Tutsis, but just before the end of School one of them admitted to all of us that he was a Hutu and expressed… Continue

It is nighttime in Tel Aviv. In the last three days I have immersed myself in The Work here in Israel by attending all of Katie’s events. They were so impressive for me, and for everyone I have spoken with, to come face to face with someone who has taken total responsibility for her own thinking and to see how the whole world is changed as a result.
The events were so sweet and smooth. You couldn’t even tell that 1,200 people each day were in the hall; you… Continue

It was a night like any other night—except it wasn’t and I knew it wasn’t—because I was greatly anticipating an event that was about to take place at the university. It was an evening designed especially for Arabs and Jews by Byron Katie, and all day long I felt I was thinking about it and wondering who the heck is going to show up, because on that same night Pink Floyd were getting back together again to play a concert for peace in Israel, and anyone who was even remotely interested in coming… Continue
