What Is Is

When we believe a thought that argues with what is we experience stress, pain, anger and suffer. When the mind is perfectly clear, what is is what we want. The Work reveals that what you think shouldn?t have happened should have happened. It should have happened because it did, and no thinking in the world can change it. This doesn?t mean that you condone it or approve of it. It just means that you can see things without resistance and without the confusion of your inner struggle. No one wants their children to get sick, no one wants to be in a car accident; but when these things happen, how can it be helpful to mentally argue with them? We know better than to do that, yet we do it, because we don?t know how to stop.

To do The Work, alone or with others, you begin by finding the particular thoughts that are causing you stress. Perhaps one thought is: My partner doesn't love me. You write the thoughts down on what is called a Worksheet, then examine the thought using these four questions:

Is it true?
Can you absolutely know that it's true?
How do you react when you believe that thought?
Who would you be without the thought?

After this, you turn the thought around to its several opposites -- for example, My partner does love me; I don't love my partner; I don't love myself -- and you find three genuine examples of how each turnaround is as true as or truer than the original thought.

I will introduce you to inquiry, model it and facilitate you if you would like to try it. Come if you want to find truth and peace and learn this simple way of dealing with your stressful thinking. All that's required is an open mind...

Email or call me with your questions.
Best,

Surati
