It is my honor to formally introduce MDC to The Work of Byron Katie.<br><br><br>
I am a graduate of The School for The Work, a facilitator of The Work and have practiced it personally since 2000.<br><br>
I cannot put into words how much this simple yet powerful method of self-inquiry has changed my life for the better.<br><br><i><br>
It is truly mind-blowing.</i><br><br><br>
The Work is not a religion and is compatible with all the world's religions.<br><br>
The Work simply consists of four questions and what is known as a turnaround.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br><span style="font-size:large;"><b>~</b></span><br><a href="http://www.thework.com" target="_blank">The official website for The Work</a><br><br><a href="http://www.byronkatie.com" target="_blank">Byron Katie's blog</a><br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/profile_videos?user=TheWorkofBK" target="_blank">The YouTube Byron Katie video library menu</a><br><br>

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
