In the moment I see you as selfish, I am selfish (deciding how you should be). In the moment I see you as unkind, I am unkind. If I believe you should stop waging war, I am waging war on you in my mind.



That is an excellent excerpt that you chose. So, yes ~ the turnarounds are all about seeing how others are a mirror for us. And ~ The Work only works when you answer the questions.


Are you interested in practicing The Work, beansavi? The only requirement is an open mind.

FYI ~ There is an inquiry Hotline available free of charge at the website for The Work. It is available to anyone who wishes to experience The Work. The volunteer hotline facilitators are all certified by Byron Katie. It is yet another amazingly generous offering that those of us who practice this incredible method of healing are inspired to offer back to the world that gives us so much. Enjoy.

And here is a nifty little free computer program called Using What Is that you can download and then practice The Work with a customized set of inquiry questions right in the comfort of home. The computer program is almost as good as a live person for facilitation purposes as 'one who holds the space'. Enjoy.
