Quote from Byron Katie:
Do you know anyone who hasn’t changed his mind? This door was a tree, then it will be firewood for someone, then it will return to air and earth. We’re all like that, constantly changing. It’s simply honest to report that you’ve changed your mind when you have. When you’re afraid of what people will think if you speak honestly, that’s where you become confused.
The greatest stock market you can invest in is yourself. Finding this truth is better than finding a gold mine.
The Work is merely four questions; it’s not even a thing. It has no motive, no strings. It’s nothing without your answers. These four questions will join any program you’ve got ad enhance it. Any religion you have—they’ll enhance it. If you have no religion, they will bring you joy. And they’ll burn up anything that isn’t true for you. They’ll burn through to the reality that has always been waiting.
Nothing terrible has ever happened except in our thinking. Reality is always good, even in situations that seem like nightmares. The story we tell is the only nightmare that we have lived.
Overachievers don't think reasonably, sensibly, or rationally.
The whole world is simply my story, projected back to me on the screen of my own perception. All of it.
It is the act of forgiveness that opens up the only possible way to think creatively about the future at all.
You are the effect of your story, that’s all.
You’re either attaching to your thoughts or inquiring. There’s no other choice.
If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.
If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.
I have never experienced a stressful feeling that wasn’t caused by attaching to an untrue thought. Behind every uncomfortable feeling, there’s a thought that isn’t true for us.
