The education integration looks to be in full swing [www.thethinkingproject.org]

"Using The Work of Byron Katie, we work with teachers and schools to question fixed-mindset thinking, and to build vibrant, open-minded, socially and emotionally literate learning environments.

With a foundation in The Work, TTPI works with students, educators and communities to develop an awareness of thought. Students explore the thinking underlying human history and interactions, and the choices and decisions people make every day. Students learn to identify and question thoughts that cause suffering in themselves, others and the world. They also learn to see situations through multiple perspectives, and engage with their inner and outer worlds with more honesty and resilience.

Questioning one-dimensional thinking is a way to nurture democratic citizenship and tolerance in classrooms and society. We're committed to working with teachers and students to question the thoughts that blocks us from living more peaceful, just, and humane lives - both inwardly and outwardly. We are committed to equity, open communication, and we champion children and educators. We seek to build sustainable, strong relationships with teachers and schools. We look forward to meeting you!"

Holy Mother Mary!!!

That is just freaking scary, luckychrmm.

I can just imagine the poor little school kids who may actually be subject to real abuse (as statistically, child abuse is a very common fact) being taught to say to themselves "I feel really unsafe, but that is only a thought."

What is the world coming to?

I despair.

Here is a link to the 75 page document written by Byron Katie's former employee 'Janaki'. This is the document mentioned in in the article by Be Scofield shared above. It is well worth a read.

Byron Katie:
“Because if it hurts, it's your thinking that's hurting you.”

Byron Katie:
“Everyone is a mirror image of yourself—your own thinking coming back at you.”

Byron Katie:
“Hurt feelings or discomfort of any kind cannot be caused by another person. No one outside you can hurt you. That’s not possible. Only when you believe a story about them can you be hurt. So you’re the one who’s hurting yourself. This is very good news, because it means that you don’t have to get someone else to stop hurting you or to change in any way. You’re the one who can stop hurting you. You’re the only one.”

Byron Katie:
“I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered,” Katie says, “but that when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional.”





In other words...You are the victim of your own thoughts. If someone is physically or verbally attacking you...it's your own thoughts that are causing suffering...not the actions of the abuser...or rapist...or...

If a thought causes your unhappiness or suffering...it must be "untrue"...

A person attacking you is just a mental reflection of yourself...your own negative thoughts.

Byron Katie is another self serving so-called teacher using non-dual concepts to promote utter bullshit.
