Begins at home. The home inside each one of us.



Welcome to the Great Undoing.


It's always a beginning. . .





It is my honor to formally introduce MDC to The Work of Byron Katie.


I am a graduate of The School for The Work, a facilitator of The Work and have practiced it personally since 2000.

I cannot put into words how much this simple yet powerful method of self-inquiry has changed my life for the better.


It is truly mind-blowing.



The Work is not a religion and is compatible with all the world's religions.

The Work simply consists of four questions and what is known as a turnaround.



Below are some links that demonstrate how The Work works as it is a living tradition and cannot be described righteously enough with just words, in my opinion.



~
The official website for The Work

Byron Katie's blog

The YouTube Byron Katie video library menu

My current favorite Byron Katie video is Open Heart Surgery
~





People who do The Work faithfully
report life-changing results




Eliminate stress: Live without anxiety or fear.

Improve relationships: Have a new sense of connection and intimacy with your husband or wife, your parents, your children, and with yourself.

Reduce anger: Get angry less often and less intensely, and eventually not at all.

Eliminate depression: See perfection in situations that were once debilitating.

Clarity: Act more intelligently and effectively.

Energy: Experience a new sense of vigor and well-being.

Peace: Learn how to love what is, and find lasting inner peace.





Peace be with you.

Aha. The desire for love is very strong. I do wish I could quell that desire. It would make for a lot less lonely Liz.

Thanks so much for posting this. I had never heard of this and it resonates with me much more than the Secret. I am going to check it out!

Laralou, it is so delightful to me that you have found comfort in The Work.
Indeed, that was my hope in starting this thread.
