There are quite a number of blogs who are seemingly trying to counter the criticism that is coming out about the Byron Katie seminars.
If anyone is inside any of the Byron Katie forums, or gets the email newsletters, etc, and if there are any "suggestions" in there about how people can "move the work" by making blog posts, and things of that nature, it would be helpful to get that info.
Someone in the media, or at a live event, needs to ask BK when she is talking about "not believing her thoughts"...if she believes the thoughts written in her RELEASE OF LIABILITY [forum.culteducation.com
If would be fascinating to watch her tap-dance around that one, in a live video interview.
In the middle of the interview, they could just read some sentences from that paper, and ask her if she believes those thoughts. Talk about a checkmate.
Get BK to write "I don't believe these thoughts" on her contract, and have her sign it.
No? thought not. She believes all these thoughts 100%. [forum.culteducation.com
The irony of course, is that Byron Katie believes her thoughts far more than anyone posting questions and criticisms. Those who question the questions, are not believing her thoughts.
But Byron Katie literally has a fanatical belief in her own thoughts, that is why she has a big company which does nothing but promote and sell her thoughts.
Of course, the key is to RATE the level of accurate belief in a thought, not just disbelieve all of them. If you disbelieve all your thoughts, you couldn't cope.
To be healthy, we need to RATE the accuracy of each thought/belief, based on the evidence. Each thought can be rated for accuracy, from 1%-99%.
But BK just preaches releasing all your thoughts, as a way to losen up your belief system, so then she can put HER thoughts in your head.
Its ironic no one has ever asked BK, why she professes such an absolutist belief in her 4 Questions, and Turnaround, when in the next breath she says she doesn't believe her thoughts.
Of course she believes her thoughts, if anything, she is an extreme absolutist, who refuses to even allow her primary beliefs and thoughts to be questioned.
and people do follow her certitude, as they always do...
...below is a comment from a BK YouTube video... Its interesting how they link all these people together...That's the only accurate thing about it!
But this is BK, very calmly laying her words and stories out there, sitting on her perch, seemingly wearing something looking like a Sari...she is very much playing the eastern guru in this one, showing some emotion...she seems to show empathy for those who have hurt others, but has no empathy for their victims. The perp is the victim.
Again, what is probably most important is the symbolism of it, to her audience. To get them to feel unhealthy sympathy for the perpetrator, and self-hate toward the victim.
It is amazing that people fall for these types of word games.
