People sometimes use The Work with the motive of healing their bodies.
They don’t understand that sanity is the cure, and that’s not up to the body.
Ultimately the body’s not going to make it.
This is very good news. It’s over, forget it, let’s work with cause.
If this body story were true, it would mean that no fat person could ever be self-realized,
no one in a wheelchair, no one old or sick, no one who’s not beautiful.
That would leave out practically the whole human race!
Under this theory, none of us would have a chance for freedom.
People think they need to get their life perfect first, and then they’ll have peace.
Can we just do it from here, now?
– Byron Katie
