Rawan from Egypt explains that even after much success with The Work, she feels that there is still something rotten inside her. Byron Katie says that she too had felt that way, and that it was true: there was something rotten inside her. "It was my unquestioned judgments about me and you." I have done Worksheets on this, and the feeling disappeared for a while, but then it comes back," Rawan says. "Judgments that go against our heart start to accumulate," Katie says, "and they can override the enlightenment you found with the Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet. I don’t call it The Work for nothing. It’s a daily practice. Every morning, identify a new judgment, close your eyes, and ask the four questions. Throughout the day, write down every rotten, unkind judgment you have. Then later fill out a full Worksheet and set yourself free." © 2016 Byron Katie International, Inc. All rights reserved. For more information, visit
