What thoughts keep you from experiencing joy, peace and love in your life?
What beliefs stop you from seeing abundance ?
What fears keep you separated and lonely?
What thoughts take you away from the present moment?
For ages we’ve believed our thoughts such as:
• My mother didn’t love me,
• I‘m a failure,
• My husband doesn’t appreciate me,
• He shouldn’t have died,
• I should be smarter,
• If I had more money, I’ d be more secure,
• I can’t stop myself,
• I am too fat,
• My son never listens,
• People shouldn’t lie,
• My wife needs to change,
• No one cares about me,
• My father was cruel,
• I had a terrible childhood,
• I’ll never find love like that again,
• My children should respect me,
• My body is unattractive,
• He never really cared,
• I’m ugly,
• I’m too old,
• She hates me,
• I’ve wasted too much time,
• I made a mistake,
• People don’t care about me,
• I need to lose weight,
• I need approval,
• I don’t deserve to be here
• My father hurt me,
• I want him to love me,
• I ‘m not worthy,
• My boss is a jerk,
• My parents should respect me,
• I can’t do anything right,
• There is something wrong with me,
• Life is difficult,
• I did it wrong
Beliefs like these can ruin our lives, cause us stress, sadness, anger, confusion and suffering. The effects of believing these negative and limiting thoughts would be war with life, others, the world and ourselves and that war produces a tremendous pain and suffering. It has been said that we have 60.000 thoughts a day in average. The come and go. We can’t stop a thought coming. We can’t stop remembering. And the good news is when we don’t believe it, a thought loses its power to upset us. In that case, it serves us or it passes through mind without causing a reaction.
“ A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It is not our thoughts, but the attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.” -Byron Katie.
“I don’t let go of my thoughts. I met them with understanding and they let go of me.” -Byron Katie
“ I discovered that when I believe my thoughts, I suffered, but when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer,and this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone, always.” -Byron Katie
“I had a lung cancer and had an operation. Feza was a great support to me during those very scary times . I don’t know how I would handle those challenging times without her standing by me with your 4 questions and turnarounds. Thank you Feza, Thank you, thank you.”
