"The Work of Byron Katie is a blessing for the planet." Eckhart Tolle
My name is Becky Miller and The Work of Byron Katie found me on New Year’s Day, 2016, at the annual sale at Crystal Magic in Sedona, Arizona.
I was standing in the book section, when a woman walks over to a shelf, picks up a book, gives it a big smooch, and starts twirling around, hugging it to her heart, like she just found her long lost best friend.
I went to the spot from where she had taken the book and picked up Loving What Is, by Byron Katie.
“Hmm,” I thought, “That sounds like me, plus I really like her hair.” I hugged the book to my own heart and purchased it at 40% off.
I started reading it that very night and it resonated with me. It made so much sense that I decided to try The Work on a relationship that was really bothering me at the time.
I asked myself the 4 questions, I found some turnarounds, something changed in me, and all my problems with that person went away. I felt only love and compassion for someone who's face I wanted to rip off only a few minutes before.
It felt like an honest to God miracle.
“Holy crap!” I thought, “This stuff really works!” And then I thought, “I have other problems. Let me make a list. I wonder if this works on everything.”
Three years later and hundreds of Judge-Your-Neighbor worksheets later, I'm still working on that list!
I knew early on that I wanted to be a Certified Facilitator of The Work, and I achieved that goal in January 2019.
My deepest gratitude to our beloved Byron Katie, the amazing team at BKI and ITW, my teachers, fellow students and 1-4-1 partners, and to The Work. May it transform this planet, one thought at a time.
