Byron Katie asks us to question our thoughts so we can awaken from the dream we find ourselves in.
The 'dream' she talks about is the automated, autopilot, conditioned self that goes through the motions day in, day out. She calls this the 'dream' state - the state of mind that doesn't stop to do 'the work' (the four questions) when we are triggered or upset in any way.
Simply put, when we believe our thoughts, we suffer. Added to which Katie notes that there are no new stressful thoughts. They (stressful thoughts) have been around since the beginning of time, since the oldest story ever written. This is great news because it means that suffering is finite, has an end, and we can achieve peace and happiness, no matter what! Katie speaks from her own experience - she has suffered organ shutdown, gone blind and lost consciousness and all the while, she just questioned her thoughts and watched as she noticed her beliefs around these events. When she believed her thoughts, she suffered. When she didn't, she was free.
