What Is Attachment to the Teachable Spirit?

Who would you be without your story? The question that Bryon Katie poses is a good one to consider.

Driving home  from work one evening, I was reflecting on the angst I felt in regards to this issue. I did not know how to settle my mind and heart about the disparity between my thinking and a significant family member’s approach to a particular subject. I felt the pressure to share their opinion or be cut off from continuing the relationship. I cannot say that I was praying about it; it felt more like I was musing on the idea of how to change my thinking so...
