The New and Old Ways

Byron Katie sometimes talk about the new and old ways.

The old way is what we are all familiar with: Looking at the silver lining, positive thinking, complaining, offering advice, distracting, comforting etc.

The new way is to inquire into our stressful thoughts, find what’s more true for us, and find our own guidance in the turnarounds.

The new way is not really new, although it may be for some of us. And what about the old way? As long as I still believe whatever thought is here, I may still use it. It may still appear helpful when I interact with folks who don’t have inquiry. But I suspect that may change, or not. I don’t know, and may get to see.
