John Cheever the beautiful American short story author began a tale…”It was a splendid summer morning and seemed as if nothing could go wrong.”
What’d you just say?
Could something go wrong? What’s happening?
I’m nervous! What?
What’s going to go wrong??!!
Quick!!!! Turn the page and let’s find out!! EEEEK!!!!!
Isn’t that how the fearful mind works?
Kind of the same way a frightening movie works. You get a little hint with that music that enters the beautiful scene. Everyone’s on a beach on a gorgeous bright sunny day.
Then…..da duhn da duhn….
If you’ve ever had a frightening experience, you’re probably familiar with the idea that something CAN go wrong.
And one of the most brilliant ways to work with worry, anxiety, fear, anticipation, or nervousness about any wrong-going event….
….is doing The Work of Byron Katie.
It’s so simple yet such a powerful way to dissolve frightened thoughts, thoughts of terror, angry thoughts, sad thoughts, upset thoughts.
This is mindful based stress reduction.
Because we start with the mind, taking a very close look. We find the images produced by the mind, and the feelings that appear in the body with these quick-as-lightening thoughts.
This week, we continue with inquiry every single day in Summer Camp For The Mind.
Yes, that’s every single day.
There is a 90 minute session, and every day is a different hour, so no matter where you live, you can find at least one that works, and maybe they all do, who knows.
Google your time zone and see when these sessions start, these are all in Pacific Time.
Monday 10 am
Tuesday 5 pm
Thursday 9 am
Friday 7 am
Then, there’s also a Sunday Inquiry Jam of 2 hours on August 2nd from 8-10 am Pacific.
Three whole weeks of daily inquiry.
Want to jump on board?
Room is limited.
But all you need to do is click HERE and make your donation. Whatever works for you best works for me, too.
So exquisite to be guided through The Work step by step.
You don’t need any special experience. Come to listen and follow along, or raise your hand and do The Work. You can be quiet or participate with sharing. All of it works.
Bring a pen and paper to the call–use skype for free, or your phone.
It is a splendid summer morning.
And something could go right.
P.S. A Summer Camper who started last week and has been to five calls said after her first five days of inquiry…
“Wow. I’m already noticing changes in such a short time of daily inquiry. Something that’s bugged me all the time didn’t bother me at all today, and I haven’t even worked on it. This is wonderful.”
