[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Univestigated Stories

The problem is usually our uninvestigated thinking, and this happens when
you're mentally in someone else's business. Uninvestigated stories leave
chaos and resentment and hatred within our own families and circles. Until
we investigate nothing else is possible

Byron Katie

I love Byron Katie's work, it is simple yet effective to me, I love
simplicity! And it basically says that many of our assumptions and made up
stories affect the decisions that we make, she talks about asking ourselves
when something happens or pop up that we start making up scenarios,
assumptions and stories - is it really true? And that's a yes or no
response, nothing else

Univestigated stories, assumptions and scenarios cause quite a number of
unnecessary challenges. Someone does something or says something, and we
attach a meaning and story on to it which in many cases has absolutely
nothing to do with us.

When we find the courage to ask a question, and asking ourselves first is
very important, it this realy true? We get a totally different perspective
on things.

I have been practicing this asking of questions to clarify what is said
this week and it has been quite an eye opener as it will either give you
the answer to your query to make a more informed choice and decision or you
can tell if the person is willing to answer and engage in communication.

Find the courage to ask
