I was once again listening to Dr. Paul’s Podcasts and he and the person he was interviewing were talking about “the stories we form in our mind about our experiences.” In essence, how we allow our experiences affect us is greatly determined by our perception of reality. We all perceive reality differently (which makes me wonder how any of us communicate anything successfully).
Most of this podcast that I listed to this morning had to do with “The Four Questions” that were created by a lady named Byron Katie. The four questions help us analyze our perception of events that we find personally offensive or painful.
“The Work is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches you to identify and question thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world. It’s a way to understand what’s hurting you, and to address your problems with clarity.”
Take a moment to visit her site and click on one of the “The Work in Action” video links. Let me know what you think.
Never mind. I think everyone should watch ALL of the “The Work in Action” videos. Really quite amazing, painful, humiliating, and entirely necessary that everyone in the world understand the concepts that she is trying teach.
