Today's episode is an excerpt from the Commune course, The Work of Byron Katie. In this session, Lena recalls a time when her mother was enraged in the car, drinking in the back seat. Katie then walks Lena through her current thoughts around this event and asks for each thought: Is it true? Can you absolutely know that it's true? How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought? And, who would you be without the thought? These four questions are followed by turning around the thought to experience the opposites of the thought.
