The Work quotes from Byron Katie – wisdom

Here is a collection of quote from BK (Byron Katie). Quoted from books or videos – “everything is for you” so are these quotes… for you, to your support only.


It´s not your job to like me…it´s MINE!

There´s only one person out of order in the whole world: you.
That´s good news because it leaves only one person to change. How convenient!

If I think my body should be different from what it is now, I’m out of my business. I’m out of my mind!

Try not to take things personally. What people say about you is a reflection of them, not you.

The miracle of love comes to you in the presence of the un-interpreted moment. If you are mentally
somewhere else, you miss real life.

When you realize that every stressful moment you experience is a gift that points you to your own freedom,
life becomes very kind.

I’m very clear that everyone in the world loves me, I just don’t expect them to realize it yet.

If you´re yelling within you that they shouldn´t yell at you, that is where the pain begins, not with their
yelling at you.

You can only see what you believe – nothing else is possible.

Just keep coming home to yourself. You are the one you have been waiting for.

You have never reacted to someone else. You project meaning onto nothing. And you react to the meaning
you have projected.

Life is love, Dearest. All else is imagined confusion.

Anytime the mind says „it´s too much“, question it.

It´s not your job to like me – it´s mine.

Anyone who is angry is fearful.

The teacher you need is the person you´re living with.

Don´t believe everything you think.

The mind asks the questions, the heart has the answers.

Reality is always kinder than your thinking.

To think that I know what´s best for anyone else is to be out of my business. Even in the name of love, it
is pure arrogance, and the result is tension, anxiety, and fear. Do I know what´s right for me? That is my
only business. Let me work with that before I try to solve problems for you.

Peace doesn´t require two people; it requires only one. It has to be you. Peace begins there and ends there.

Placing the blame or judgment on someone else leaves you powerless to change your experience; taking
responsibility for your beliefs and judgments gives you the power to change them.

A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It´s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes
suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it´s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we´ve
been attaching to, often for years.

An uncomfortable feeling is not an enemy. It´s a gift that says „get honest; inquire“.

Do you want to meet the love of your life? Look in the mirror.

If you think the cause of your problems it „out there“, you´ll try to solve it from the outside. Take the shortcut:
solve it from within.

We don´t attach to people or to things; we attach to uninvestigated concepts that we believe to be true in the moment.

An unquestioned life is the world of suffering.

There´s never a mistake in the universe. So if your partner is angry, good. If there are things about him that
you consider flaws, good, because these flaws are your own, you´re projecting them, and you can write them down, inquire,
and set yourself free. People go to India to find a guru, but you don´t have to: you´re living with one. Your partner will
give you everything you need for your own freedom.

If you want real control, drop the illusion of control; let life have you. It does anyway.

I questioned my thoughts and the mind fell in love with itself.

Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon
nor too late. You don´t have to like it… it´s just easier if you do.

The ego is terrified of the truth. And the truth is that the ego doesn´t exist.

When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.

The mind´s job is to validate what it thinks.

I don´t need other people to have an open mind for me to be happy. I´m the only one who needs an open mind.

The pain shows you what´s left to investigate.

How do I know it was meant to happen that way? Because it did.

We may appear to be mean, but we´re really only frightened.

Don´t be careful. You could hurt yourself.

All the advice you ever gave your partner is for you to hear.

What you´re believing in the moment creates your suffering or your happiness.

Every moment is a gift: are you unwrapping your´s now, and now, and now…?

In this moment there´s nothing to do, nowhere to go, no one to be, no past or future, everything just is.

Stress is the alarm clock that lets you know you´ve attached to something not true for you.

I love what I think, and I´m never tempted to believe it.

When you argue with reality, you lose, but only 100% of the time.

Nothing outside you can ever give you what you´re looking for.

Everything you thought they were, you are.

I don´t know is a lot of freedom.

Staying in my own business is a full time job.

There is no beginning of time, only beginning of thought.

The internal world is so fine. There´s nothing that can compete with it.

When we start to get honest the space between thoughts gets wider and wider.

I am a Lover. I am a lover of what is. Not because I am a spiritual person, but because it hurts when i argue
with reality.

If you realized how beautiful you are, you would fall at your own feet.

A No to you is a Yes to me. A Yes to you is a Yes to me. (When you say yes to others make sure you are not
saying no to yourself).

The only thing you fear is the unreality that you yourself have invented.

When they attack you and you notice that you love them with all your heart, your work is done.

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.

No, of course I won´t trade this moment for anything. I can´t.

The ego is not an enemy. I literally loved it to death. Be kind. Consider the terror of falseness. The ego is a
confused child.

If you want real control, drop the illusion of control; let life have you. It does anyway. You´re just telling
yourself the story of how it doesn´t.

Thoughts are just what is. They appear. They´re innocent. They´re not personal.

If I had a prayer, it would be this: „God, spare me from the desire for love, approval, or appreciation. Amen.

I realized I could be right … or I could be free.

Might these quotes support you to find yourself – your real self – the inner wisdon, love an d peace that cannot be denied!
Make use of it as often you like and need to – best & Love Thias
