Compassionate Nonsense

Reading interviews with Byron Katie, I see that she tends to end with an acknowledgment of that it is all just a story. She says something along the lines of…

It is all nonsense, but if it makes you happy then I am happy.

There is a great beauty in this. She points out that it is all a story, something added on top of what is, and yet she engages in it from compassion with others. She knows others are looking for it, and feel they get something out of it, so she agrees to go along.
