    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Overall

    I am giving this book 4 stars, not because the author was so spectacular, but because I think this book is very important as an intro to the Law of Attraction for people who really don't know much about it. After getting turned on to this stuff, and you want to know more, I recommend looking into Ask and It Is Given by Esther & Jerry Hicks, The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer, and my favorite, The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire by Deepak Chopra. You will also hear a lot of quotes from other people in The Secret, I suggest looking deeper into their work if one of their quotes is especially meaningful to you.

    Overall

    This book saved my marriage. I was bored with my marriage and was thinking of possibly having an affair and divorcing my husband. I felt so guilty and I was looking for some answers, which is how I found this book. After listening to this book and hearing the cut and dry advice from Dr. Livingston, I took responsiblity for the damage I had done during the years of my marriage and decided to make necessary changes. I realized that my own character flaws were responsible for most of my problems. It opened up honest communication between me and my husband and we're working towards saving our marriage. I believe we can definitely find the "better" after the "worse" if we work at it. I feel this way because of the shift I made in my thinking and my actions after listening to this book. This book is only for people who are willing to be honest with themselves.

    Out of nowhere, like a fresh breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice on what to believe, comes Byron Katie and what she calls "The Work". In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed. Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now, in Loving What Is, you can discover the same freedom through The Work.

    "Interesting reality check"
    Overall

    I found this book a helpful reality check, but at times difficult to listen to. I didn't think it was motivational or inspirational, although I did find that through doing "the work" I was able to let go of some judgmental ideas I had that were causing frustration in my life. What I found difficult was doing "the turn around" in some scenarios. I see in some situations how this is a huge relief, but in other more "moral" situations this not so easy. The bottomline is...accept what is, because there is no other reality. If you can love it, then you're free! It's pretty simple and she shows you how to do it.
