Byron Katie Quotes
It's not your job to like me
- it's mine
Thoughts are just what is.
They appear. They're innocent. They're not personal.
They're like the breeze or the leaves on the trees or the raindrops falling.
Thoughts arise like that, and we can make friends with them.
Would you argue with a raindrop?
An uncomfortable feeling is not an enemy.
Itís a gift that says, "Get honest; inquire."
We reach out for alcohol, or television, or credit cards,
so we can focus out there and not have to look at the feeling.
And that's as it should be, because in our innocence we haven't known how.
So now what we can do is reach out for a paper and a pencil,
write thought down, and investigate.
The teacher you need
is the person you're living with.
Do you want to meet the love of your life?
Look in the mirror.
Nothing can cost you someone you love.
The only thing that can cost you your husband is if you believe a thought.
That's how you move away from him.
That's how the marriage ends.
You are one with your husband until you believe the thought
that he should look a certain way, he should give you something,
he should be something other than what he is.
That's how you divorce him.
Right then and there you have lost your marriage.
The world is nothing but my perception of it.
I see only through myself.
I hear only through the filter of my story
The world is perfect.
As you question your mind, this becomes more and more obvious.
Mind changes, and as a result, the world changes.
A clear mind heals everything that needs to be healed.
It can never be fooled into believing that there is one speck out of order.
All sadness is a tantrum.
Placing the blame or judgment on someone else
leaves you powerless to change your experience.
Taking responsibility for your beliefs and judgments
gives you the power to change them.
