Wiggle Room Podcast: Episode 111

How to Stop Forcing Your Answers to Question 4 + Are Motives Bad?

In this episode of the Wiggle Room Podcast, a participant asks about how to stop forcing herself, or faking it, when answering Question 4 of The Work. Later, I answer a question that someone recently asked me, “Are motives bad?” and does questioning a motive mean I should drop it?

Open Session Recording

Listen to the Open Session recording as a participant asks about The Work of Byron Katie and what to do when she gets blocked in Question 4 and she finds it difficult to imagine herself without the thought. You’ll also enjoy a discussion about motives: are they bad or good, or is there something more to understand about them?
You too can be a participant in Open Sessions each week to do The Work with me, ask your questions, or join in our discussions.
