Byron Katie

‘As long as you think that the cause of your problem is “out there” — as long as you think that anyone or anything is responsible for your suffering — the situation is hopeless. It means that you are forever in the role of victim, that you’re suffering in paradise.’

It might seem that Byron Katie is unforgiving in her insistence that believing in your thoughts is the root of all your problems, but having known people whose lives were transformed by doing The Work with her, and having seen her in action a couple of times at Wisdom 2.0 (the quote came in an email I recently received from them), I can attest to the deep compassion she has, and her fearless wish for everyone to be free from suffering.
