What is is. Everything I need is already here now. So everything I need is always supplied. Whose business am I in now? When you no longer intrude and have stopped trying to manipulate or control her, you meet someone who is more amazing than anything you could have imagined. The transformation of a marriage The effects on a relationship when both people do inquiry can be nothing short of miraculous. The communication keeps everything open and without secrets.

Both partners have written a Worksheet on the other, and each in turn reads the Worksheet aloud. The apparent flaws or shortcomings that each sees and dislikes in the other are, after all, the pain that each one feels. Those painful fights…never happened again. Right there, I wrote down my thoughts and inquired into them. When I returned to my own business—which meant looking into my thoughts, not his—I felt better immediately.

The thoughts unraveled as I asked myself the questions. If we have a problem with each other, we go to different rooms and write down our thoughts.

Then we help each other to inquire. Through inquiry we find out that these stories are just telling us where we wandered from the path of love and understanding. How could it be? When my neediness died away, what was left was love.

There is nothing terrible except your unquestioned thoughts about what you see. Be a child. Know nothing. Take your ignorance all the way to your freedom.

Could it be you? Trying to earn your own love is just as painful as seeking the love of others, and the results are just as unsatisfying. And undoing the search works the same way. When you sincerely question your unexamined thoughts about yourself, love just happens. In every inquiry about a painful relationship—with your spouse, your mother, or someone at work—you always discover that the stress is caused by your own thinking.

And when you do the turnarounds, you see how the opposite of a painful thought can be as true or truer. Most people have been told by friends or family or advice columnists that they should love themselves. But how do you do it? This chapter is…about un-fooling yourself. What are you ashamed of? Love is what we are already. Love is not a doing. There is nothing you have to do. And when you question your mind, you can see that the only thing that keeps you from being love is a stressful thought.

This may take some time to uncover. Secrets cry out for inquiry. I have gone to the depths of my own painful beliefs.

I have questioned them and seen them vanish like dreams. Please treat each question as a deep meditation. Even if the turnarounds seem difficult, find three genuine ways, however modest, in which the opposite is as true as or truer than your original statement.

This journey allows the mind to give you other truths, truths that reveal your goodness. There are two ways of being me: one is to hate it and one is to love it. Can I ever really know when someone is listening or not?

Am I sometimes listening even when I appear not to be? Of course it does.

Your concepts are based on a lifetime of uninvestigated beliefs. Can I really know for myself, within myself, that people should be more loving?

Even if the whole world tells me so, is it really true? The truth is prior to every story. I would stand rooted in that answer—solitary, peaceful, free.

How could no be the right answer? Everyone I knew, and all the books, said that the answer should be yes. But I came to see that the truth is itself and will not be dictated to by anyone. In the presence of that inner no, I came to see that the world is always as it should be, whether I oppose it or not.

And I came to embrace reality with all my heart. I love the world, without any conditions. If your answer is still yes, good. How do you react when you believe that thought? With this question, we begin to notice internal cause and effect.

You can see that when you believe the thought, there is an uneasy feeling, a disturbance that can range from mild discomfort to fear or panic. How do you treat him? Be still; notice. I start talking faster and louder, and I try to force him to listen. Does that thought bring peace or stress into your life? What images do you see, past and future, and what physical sensations arise as you witness those images?

Allow yourself to experience them now.

Do you act out on any of the following: alcohol, drugs, credit cards, food, sex, television, or computers? Also, witness how you treat yourself in this situation and how that feels.

I isolate myself, I feel sick, I feel angry, I eat compulsively, and for days I watch television without really watching. I feel depressed, separate, resentful, and lonely. I noticed that prior to the thought, there was peace. My mind was quiet and serene.

This is who I am without my story. Take a moment to reflect, observe, and experience the situation again, this time without the thought. Who or what you would be without the thought? How would you see or feel about the other person? Drop all of your judgments. Notice what is revealed. What am I missing? If you answer the questions superficially with the thinking mind, the process will leave you feeling disconnected. Try asking the question and going deeper.

You may have to ask the question a few times to stay focused, but as you practice this, an answer will slowly arise. When the answer comes from inside you, the realizations and shifts follow naturally.

Let the mind ask the question, and wait for the answer that surfaces. Notice if you experience any defense as you answer. Reality, for me, is what is true. The truth is whatever is in front of you, whatever is really happening. When asking the first question, take your time. The answer is either yes or no.

The Work is about discovering what is true from the deepest part of yourself. As you continue to dive deeper, allow the truth within you to rise and meet the question. Be gentle as you give yourself to inquiry. Let this experience have you completely. Consider these questions: Can I ever really know when someone is listening or not? Am I sometimes listening even when I appear not to be? Of course it does. Your concepts are based on a lifetime of uninvestigated beliefs.

Can I really know for myself, within myself, that people should be more loving? Even if the whole world tells me so, is it really true? The truth is prior to every story.

With this question, we begin to notice internal cause and effect. You can see that when you believe the thought, there is an uneasy feeling, a disturbance that can range from mild discomfort to fear or panic. How do you treat him?

Be still; notice. For example: I start talking faster and louder, and I try to force him to listen. Does that thought bring peace or stress into your life? What images do you see, past and future, and what physical sensations arise as you witness those images? Allow yourself to experience them now. Do any obsessions or addictions begin to appear when you believe that thought?

Do you act out on any of the following: Also, witness how you treat yourself in this situation and how that feels. I isolate myself, I feel sick, I feel angry, I eat compulsively, and for days I watch television without really watching. I feel depressed, separate, resentful, and lonely. I noticed that prior to the thought, there was peace. My mind was quiet and serene. This is who I am without my story.

Then, in the stillness of awareness, I began to notice the feelings that came from believing or attaching to the thought. And in the stillness I could see that if I were to believe the thought, the result would be a feeling of unease and sadness.

I reacted by living in a stressed body, seeing everything through fearful eyes, a sleepwalker, someone in a seemingly endless nightmare. The remedy was simply to investigate. I love question 3. Once you answer it for yourself, once you see the cause and effect of believing a thought, all your suffering begins to unravel.

This is a very powerful question.It is a way to find peace with yourself and with the world. Secrets cry out for inquiry. The truth is that we all have judgments running in our heads. And while that's just one simple statement, and one you've probably heard before, no one seems to be telling us HOW to change our minds.

Of course it does. Make sure your statements are short and simple. How did you treat the other person?

It is not our thoughts, but the attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Can I really know for myself, within myself, that people should be more loving?
