|The Work of Byron Katie
The Work of Byron Katie is a way of identifying and questioning the thoughts that cause all the fear and suffering in the world. The steps are simple and first involve identifying the stressful & limiting thoughts; then inquiring into those stressful thoughts by asking 4 simple questions; then identifying Turnarounds to those stressful thoughts; and finally finding your own examples of how those Turnarounds may be true now or in the past.
The goal in doing ‘The Work’ is not to ‘change’ a person or their behaviour. That happens automatically as new truths become apparent. Rather it is more about being supportive as they unveil to themselves the countless other options which they may believe are not open to them. This unveiling occurs at a pace that the person themselves dictates.
‘The Work’ is not counselling, therapy or giving advice – it is inquiry.
Furthermore ‘The Work’ is not about trying to change the ‘facts’ or helping people believe ‘black is white’. It is not the facts that cause the stress but the thoughts and images about the ‘facts’ that people carry around with them which is the source of the stress.
