Loving my thoughts

 

I just finished my second School with Byron Katie, this time in LA. It was very good, perhaps especially since I got to see more of my remaining beliefs. Most of these are not aligned with my conscious view, most noticeably held at an emotional level, and – yes – they sometimes show up in how I live my life. For these thoughts, telling myself I already know what’s more true is one of the “guardians of the treasure”, it’s one of the ways I sometimes stop myself from a more thorough and sincere inquiry and the gifts found there.

Katie mentioned loving our thoughts a few times. It’s very close to loving what is, of course, and yet also a slightly different angle and perhaps more precise. My world of images is, quite literally, my world – it’s the world I live in. And my world of images includes the most basic images – of space, time, a me, and I, others, beings, objects, a world. As long as there is resistance to some of these images, as long as “I” recoil from them, relate to them with fear, there is internal war and it’s less helpful for myself and others. When there is love for these images, for instance through inquiry, I am less caught up in stress and internal war, and more available to act from intelligent love.

– loving what is vs loving thoughts
– my world of images/thoughts is my world
– an image of me fighting (some of) those images/thoughts
– or finding love for, see it’s (a) not true, (b) innocent, (c) already love (confused love, clear love)

Katie talked about loving our thoughts. It’s very close to loving what is, of course, and yet also a slightly different angle and perhaps more precise. My world of images is, quite literally, my world – it’s the world I live in. And as I find love for more of my own world of images, I am less caught up in stress and internal war, and more available to act from intelligent love.
