Omega Institute Loving Without Exception: An Interview With Byron Katie, Part 2
An Interview With Byron Katie, Part 2
Omega: Your experience of “waking up to reality” was very dramatic. Such experiences won’t happen to most people, so how can the rest of us awaken? Katie: Thought by thought. People think that they need to get “enlightened” in order to be free, and nobody knows what enlightenment is.
