I have never experienced a stressful feeling that wasn’t caused by attaching to an untrue thought. Behind every uncomfortable feeling, there’s a thought that isn’t true for us.” ~ Byron Katie

Untrue thoughts


2 Responses to "Untrue thoughts"

I think it is too simplistic to link feelings into thoughts. At the root level felings are sensed before the thought is formed, that is why we have our six senses. An uncomfortable feeling could be indigestion, which if not addressed could lead to negative thoughts. That doesn’t mean you don’t have indigestion, it just means you have to understand the source of the uncomfortable feeling.

It’s hard to speak for Byron Katie, given this is her quote, though she seems to be referring to stressful feelings rather than sensations in general. The two – thoughts and feelings can become so interconnected and circular it can be difficult to distinguish which is driving which. Your observation “you have to understand the source of the uncomfortable feeling” seems to be the crux of it – bringing our awareness to the source of the feeling is our point of power, and allows us to own how we may be feeding it through an unconscious or outdated perception. Even realizing we have a stuck or repetitive feeling can help to release the energy behind it. Thanks for your comment! -Sarah
