Byron Katie describes in detail how to put the mind on paper by meditating on a stressful moment and filling in a Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet. Participants at an Ojai event write a Worksheet about a situation with someone they experienced as hurtful. She guides them to witness the situation, to get in touch with the feelings they were experiencing in that moment, and to notice every detail of the moment: where they were, the time of day, who else was there, etc. In stillness, they remain with their attention focused on that moment, notice what arises, and fill in each statement, using short, simple sentences. For example: "I want him to acknowledge me" or "I want him to stop lying to me." It's fine to write just one statement, and it's fine to write more than one. "This is a process, "Katie explains, "of transferring to paper everything you experienced in that situation. The thoughts may sound immature or unenlightened to you, but you want to identify whatever you were believing in that moment that would move you from peace. You want to write down what produces the upset in your life." "All war belongs on paper." —Byron Katie DOWNLOAD Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet: http://thework.com/sites/thework/downloads/worksheets/JudgeYourNeighbor_Worksheet.pdf Website: http://www.thework.com Webcasts: http://www.livewithbyronkatie.com Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/theworkofbk Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/theworkofbyronkatie Twitter: https://twitter.com/ByronKatie © 2016 Byron Katie International, Inc.
