The Byron Katie blog is a real piece of work.
Here is one entry that is total manipulation, using the typical Byron Katie themes she is working on with people.
A Letter from Holland
Byron Katie has various themes. One of her main themes is to try to make you feel good about LOSING MONEY, and even losing everything. Its right there in the text.
This is all a preamble to folks who are at a Byron Katie seminar, when she tells them to give her a massive "gift", then they are pre-conditioned to give Byron Katie a fortune.
CANCER: Byron Katie loves to press the cancer button, over and over. It works. She tells people to go into denial and pretend they don't have it, if they have it. But more importantly is about FEAR of CANCER, that is a way Byron Katie is able to get inside the mind.
But here is the kicker. Byron Katie pretends that someone wrote this letter to her...not a chance. She and hubby wrote it, or added to it. Notice in the paragraph below she does 4 things, all merged together...
1) mp3 Brainwashing: Katie is suggesting to people to listen to her Mental Cleanse brainwashing recording every single night, as they fall asleep, and go into a natural hypnotic state. (please do not do this).
2) Staff: she is suggesting people be "staff", that is, PAY Byron Katie to work for her, at her seminars. (please do not do this).
3) when you do pay to work for Katie, SHE WILL NOT EVEN SPEAK TO YOU PERSONALLY.
4) ON YOUR KNEES THANKING BYRON KATIE (please do not do this). Notice how she uses the ON YOUR KNEES idea many times...this is how she can get people to fall on their knees before Byron Katie in a parking lot...its about getting total submission.
Byron Katie is utterly ruthless, power corrupts.
Every evening I go to bed with the MP3 player with the Mental Cleanse on it (what a brilliant idea!). I listen to the clarity of The Work and of you, and I fall asleep in peace-- peace is what I want in this lifetime, and there is a lot of work to do. I am very happy and starting to get balanced. I am so grateful that I could be a staff member this summer in Bad Neuenahr. I did not speak to you personally then, but I breathed in and out the wonderful, peaceful, clear atmosphere of the School. Everything so well organized, always someone to talk to and to ask a question, always availability. And from me, it just came out of me, without having to do so much. Just gratitude. Being able to experience it.
On my knees, thanking you and me for this gift of life.
Dear Katie, embracing you with love,
