Byron Katie Quotes

We see things as we are, reality as we know it is a mirror of our within, instead of judging reality we can use it to become more aware of our selves and reconnect with our essence.

What internal environment are you creating? Look at the world, that's it exactly. Byron Katie

The mind usually says, “I know, I know, I know.” But the “don’t-know mind” is where wisdom lives. Byron Katie
If you want to see the love of your life, look in the mirror.
Pay close attention to the particular thoughts you use to deprive yourself of happiness.
If I had a prayer, it would be this: “God spare me from the desire for love, approval, or appreciation. Amen”
Whenever you think that your needs are not met, you’re telling the story of a future.
How do you keep your ego intact? Defense, of course.
It's not the darkness that people fear; it's what they imagine into the darkness.
You’re just suffering from the belief that there’s something missing from your life.
You can only see what you believe—nothing else is possible.
The only thing you fear is the unreality that you yourself have invented.
When I seek your approval, I don’t approve of the me that’s seeking the approval.
When you say or do anything to please, get, keep, influence, or control anyone or anything, fear is the cause and pain is the result. Manipulation is separation, and separation is painful. Another person can love you totally in that moment and you’d have no way of realizing it. If you act from fear, there’s no way you can receive love, because you’re trapped in a thought about what you have to do for love. Every stressful thought separates you from people.
Depression, pain, and fear are gifts that say, “Sweetheart, take a look at your thinking in this moment. You’re living in a story that isn’t true for you.” Living a lie is always stressful. And investigating a lie through The Work always leads you back to who you are. Who you are is not an option. You are love. It hurts to believe you’re other than who you are, to live any story less than love.
When a thought hurts, that’s the signal that it isn’t true.
When you discover that all happiness is inside you, the wanting and needing are over, and life gets very exciting.
I'm a lover of what is, not because I have to be, but because it hurts when I argue with reality.
Fear has only two causes: the thought of losing what you have or the thought of not getting what you want.
Arguing with reality is like trying to teach a cat to bark - hopeless.
Gratitude is what we are without a story.
Defense is the first act of war. Notice.
Confusion is when you argue with what is.
Personalities don't love - they want something.
All the advice you ever gave your partner is for you to hear.
Seeking love keeps you from the awareness that you already are it.

Here’s what I’ve told my children: “You have the perfect mother. I’m responsible for all your problems, and you’re responsible for the solutions.”
