Byron Katie, founder of The Work, eloquently explains, "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." I love this! "Suffering is optional." There are aspects of life that are beyond our control, but we do have the ability to take ownership of our thoughts. Our personal freedom can be dramatically impacted by modifying our mindset, our internal dialogue, and our self-talk. Simply stated, we have the key to unlock our freedom.
One committed to processing truth, finding light in the darkness, savoring the simple, and living fully.
