You can find Byron Katie, and her deep deep ‘Work’ HERE. A simple yet profound way of identifying and questioning the thoughts that cause all the anger, fear, depression, addiction, and violence in the world.

One / ‘Most of us believe the thoughts we hold about ourselves to be true. Without question.’
Two / ‘Anyone can question what they believe if their mind is open to it.’

Five / ‘Can you absolutely know that what you’re believing is true?’
