Why Tell Stories?

Any story that you tell about yourself is food for the ego. Any story that you tell about yourself causes suffering. There's no authentic story (believe it or not).

–  Byron Katie

think not

When we think, we tell stories about us, them and the world. It’s all made up. Think about that. Actually, think not about that…

affirmations

Today I AM my awareness of myself.

What To Do With Our Thoughts?

Thoughts are just what is. They appear. They’re innocent. They’re not personal. They’re like the breeze or the leaves on the trees or the raindrops falling. Thoughts arise like that, and we can make friends with them. Would you argue with a raindrop? –  Byron Katie

just let them be

If we engage with them we make them us. Thoughts are not us. They happen to us.

affirmations

Today I AM just watching my thoughts, they come and they go.

What Is Reality?

I’m a lover of reality. When I argue with What Is, I lose, but only 100% of the time. –  Byron Katie

what is

What is, is right here and now. It’s never in our thoughts. If we struggle with ‘what is’ then we suffer…

affirmations

Today I AM refusing to suffer, I accept it all, as it happens, all around me.
