Recently I attended a 9 day school called “The Work” with Byron Katie and I really loved the depth, the authenticity and level of inquiry I was able to look from in the school’s curriculum.
Wow, I looked at things I would never have thought about. I highly recommend her work with a caveat.
I also noticed some draw backs with the judge your neighbor worksheets (I talk about in this video) that could potentially keep someone trapped doing worksheets for a long time which I know is wasting time and the ego’s goal in the dream.
Seek and never find.
However, I don’t feel it’s Katie or Stephen Mitchell’s intent for the training in this one of a kind school that offers a different type access of forgiveness and purification with a specific practice, especially in the first two questions.
- Is it true?
- Do you absolutely know for certain that it’s true?
What do we use to verify our own beliefs or the true origin of our experience other than our own direct experience through a simple practice of self inquiry like “The Work”?
This is why it is essential that we take time to step out of time in asking ourselves, what is it that is Aware of this experience, so that we absolutely know the truth and then the truth will lead the way.
This understanding through direct experience is the goal of A Course in Miracles and any other non dual teaching of our Oneness with all that is that many call God or God’s infinite Being.
I want to prove to you the accuracy of this statement by asking you this one question (Yes or No) and I invite you to close all other activities you have going on right now whether it’s an app, your phone, your computer or even activities in the mind. Just set all of this aside for 5 minutes and give yourself this experience of Self Awareness in order that you absolutely know if it’s True.
Do You Absolutely Know That It’s True?
I Am Aware
Is it True?
Yes or No?
Do you absolutely know that this is true? Pause and allow the answer to come forth of its own.
What knows this?
Now, that you are looking from here. You are in the space that knows and is Aware. You are Pure Presence. Stay in this experience of Awareness and Know.
Stay right here and be Aware. This is also The Holy Instant experience only most people don’t realize you can live here all the time.
I have added a guided meditation to help you hang out in this experience of Awareness. Enjoy!
