1. “I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but that when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone, always.” ~ Byron Katie
2. “A teacher of fear can’t bring peace on Earth. We have been trying to do it that way for thousands of years. The person who turns inner violence around, the person who finds peace inside and lives it, is the one who teaches what true Peace is. We are waiting for just one teacher. You’re the one.” ~ Byron Katie
3. “I like to say, “When I walk into a room, I know that everyone in it loves me. I just don’t expect them to realize it yet.” ~ Byron Katie 🙂
4. Before, without even realizing it, everything I did was to avoid pain or to please other people. I was caught up in doing, pursuing, searching, and achieving; and I was the last person I ever took into consideration. My life was driven by fear; Fear of displeasing others, of failing, of being selfish, and of not being good enough. In my own head, I always fell short. This way of living finally drove me to illness. Now however, after healing, I understand that I only have to be myself and follow my heart. I don’t worry any more about trying to get things right or complying with rules or doctrines. I make my everyday choices from a place of Love instead of fear, which means doing what brings me Joy instead of doing things out of a fear of the consequences. I now know that I can’t go wrong when I live this way. Ironically, I end up pleasing more people than my old ways ever did, just because I’m so much Happier, Peaceful and more liberated! And this way of living has a huge positive impact on my health as well!
