Byron Katie is unique...I would not compare her to anybody else I've read or listened to, except perhaps Geneen Roth
Hearing her discuss her vision problems with all its ramifications was very inspiring to me. That she could say curing her eyes would be good, but not curing them would also be good was a personal look into what it means to accept reality as good.
This book takes a lot of pondering. I loved hearing it in her own voice and I find myself applying her wisdom to my life constantly.
this one seemed to be on a different level, way more spiritual than practical like her usual work. I couldn't relate at all, and didn't like this book at all. I highly recommend her other books though, and they are great as audio books.
Exactly what I was looking for and many times more. And I happen to have studied with some of the most powerful spiritual teachers on the planet, and Katie has basically boiled everything that I've learned down to four steps. Absolutely nothing more powerful in book form. Thank you Katie!
Katie lives her philosophy. She explains it over and over through stories. She's made me not think about things and appreciate them as they are. The stories are what make this statement valuable. I'm may become a more centered and compassionate person as a result of this book.
I Like her simplicity, question her foundation. She reflects back to her own past yet claims the past is gone, which it is but uses hers as her foundation. Her message is wonderfully freeing and I love the tools. One has only to read Father Walter Ciszek, St. Thomas Aquinas, Jean Pierre de Caussade and more to experience the same message but Byron Katie's questions help one question their own thoughts to find the peace and love and freedom available to all. I get the sense she has a strong moral ideal but claims she will and can accept whatever comes and whatever goes. Well, would she accept immorality in her home if someone were to bring it there? Probably not...living in her body she still has a foundation based on some moral code that has been taught to her otherwise she might be a cannibal or something, yet claims to be nothing and know nothing. Everything is in her imagination! That is incredible to me and a little delusional but the tools she teaches are well worth the time...
