Right now is a perfect time for Inquiry, for examining truthfully the many difficult and often dark assumptions so many of us are projecting in the future since this recent election. I have heard it my entire spiritual life, when the darkness increases, increase your activities of light, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.”
I have noticed in my mind and in the minds of many people I speak to, numerous stressful thoughts of insecurity, resistance, and anxiety about where this new administration will take our country, the environment, women’s rights, and the freedom of religion…so many things we have been taking for granted. Now the fear and the assumption is they will be reversed or taken from us.
The work of Byron Katie is simple direct inquiry into all these stressful beliefs so many of us are having these days. No belief is exempt from Inquiry. Any stressful thought can be looked into… Is it true? Can you absolutely know that it’s true what you are believing? How do you react, how do you live you life when you’re believing this thought? How do you treat others and yourself?
This is true honest Inquiry of an open mind, what really is the truth? This workshop is a timely opportunity to examine the beliefs which are often rampant these days which are causing many of us undue stress and worry and to begin to undo these stories, see what is true, and turn it around. So that we can be spreading calmness, joy, intelligence, and kindness in our daily environment instead of fear, resistance, blame, and polarization against “them”.
Isn’t it simply our responsibility as spiritual beings to be fully responsible for the thoughts that cause separation and suffering in our personal world?. As a true light bearer our job is to transform, to alchemize whatever darkness is occurring at the time into some form of light, into inspiration. To be supporting Grace instead of falling into illusion.
The truth is all elections represent a kind of duality: us versus them. At the very root of this kind of thinking is division and separation, stress, loneliness and fear. At the very root of duality is pure clear awareness: it simply sees what is, choiceless awareness, serenity and peace … Spiritual brightness is being in the flow of what’s happening, it is trusting existence, wherever life is taking us. We can’t control the things we can’t control, but we can be our best selves.
The inquiry of Byron Katie is a perfect way to put our mental, spiritual and emotional house in clean order, to put things right side up to reconnect with inspiration Grace and Light instead of becoming party to delusion.
Come and join us in the work of Byron Katie for a profound and thorough inquiry and give yourself the gift of an inner house cleaning and reset as we come to the end of 2016.
