The Byron Katie inquiries overlaps in many ways with approaches I have used in the past, and also many other approaches out there.
A brief overview of how the Byron Katie inquiries seem to correspond with other approaches.
- Is it true?
Awareness of the discrepancy between opinions and reality.
- Can you absolutely know it is true?
Awareness of how abstractions are always only relative truth, unable to touch any absolute truth. Awareness of the limits of knowledge.
- How do you react when you believe that thought?
Psychotherapy (exploring how we are apparently screwed up).
- Who would you be without the thought?
Shikantaza. Big Mind process (Big Mind/Heart, nonseeking mind). Headlessness. Atma Vichara. Mindfulness based psychotherapy.
Projections. Shadow work. Everything and everybody are mirrors for myself. Awareness of abstractions as only relative truth, unable to touch any absolute truth.
