Conversations with Byron Katie, 18 February 2015

Video Description: 
Byron Katie begins the hour in dialogue with a man suffering from deep depression. She guides him through filling in a Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet using concepts from the letter he sent in: "I want to get out of bed," "I want a sense of direction," "I need to know what to do with my life," "I need to feel successful." As he notices the thoughts that hold him back from doing The Work, his mind opens and he sees the possibility of peace. Next, a woman from the U.K. questions a thought about her husband: "He's hiding things from me." A tearful woman from Washington State finds that she is addicted to her fear of her son's drug addiction. Maria from Germany experiences physical pain and weakness from a chronic illness and questions the thought "I'm in physical pain constantly," "I don't know how to go on with life." Finally, a woman from Denmark asks, "If I can always find a way to love what is, how do I know when it's time to make changes?" "Change happens on its own," Katie explains. "You don't have to do anything."
