From Bryon Katie: The Work
Below are some prompts developed by author Byron Katie. Using what she calls “self-inquiry,” you can unearth the seemingly solid nature of thoughts- thereby illuminating the elusive stories we actually create and so powerfully drive our feelings.
See Byron Katie’s website for more information and free worksheets for download.
- Question 1: Is it true?
- Question 2: Can you absolutely know it’s true?
- Question 3: How do you react—what happens—when you believe that thought?
- Question 4: Who would you be without the thought?
- Turn the thought around (in as many variations as you can find, checking to see what other deeper truths may stem from your initial thought).
