Thanks!

 

December 3rd, 2010 marked the culmination of a journey. One that began with a few shovelfuls of dirt at the Kansas State Fair in September 2009. At that time, Hutchinson, Kansas, was a small town facing an uncertain future. Its residents were witness to a steady flight of industry from the region. Today, it's a different story. Hutchinson brims over with optimism. Residents have secured coveted green manufacturing jobs. All factory capabilities are up and running and nacelles built in Hutchinson head to the Lower Snake River Wind Farm in Washington, where they will be combined with blades from Fort Madison, Iowa. Please watch the video and see the people who have made this achievement possible.

The only way to accomplish peace is for the participants to go within. All wars and killings are started by wrong beliefs, as well as by an excess of hatred and a lack of love. There are ways to turn hatred into understanding, forgiveness, compassion, and finally love.


For example, Byron Katie has a method called "the work". This method of going within to heal oneself is very powerful. This method has been used by both Israelis and Palestinians with great positive effect for all participants.
  

The method taught by Byron Katie is misleadingly simple, but also VERY powerful. It works. What is it?  


JUDGE YOUR NEIGHBOR, WRITE IT DOWN. ASK FOUR QUESTIONS. TURN IT AROUND.

I have personally used this method to heal myself of hatred, misunderstanding, and misperceptions which caused me to want to choose hatred and violence as a method of solving problems, when I did not need to do so. Her method works and I encourage everyone to use it.


After all, our goal is the pursuit of happiness and peace, is it not?


Why not use her method to not only pursue happiness and peace, but to actually experience it and enjoy it?
