Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life | [Byron Katie, Stephen Mitchell]

Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life

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.

Publisher's Summary

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, and over a 10-year period sank further into rage, despair, and thoughts of suicide. 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.

The Work is simply four questions that, when applied to a specific problem, enable you to see what is troubling you in an entirely different light. As Katie says, "It's not the problem that causes our suffering; it's our thinking about the problem." Contrary to popular belief, trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead, once we have done The Work, the thought lets go of us. At that point, we can truly love what is, just as it is.

Loving What Is will show you step-by-step, through clear and vivid examples, exactly how to use this revolutionary process for yourself. You'll see people do The Work with Katie on a broad range of human problems, from a wife ready to leave her husband because he wants more sex, to a Manhattan worker paralyzed by fear of terrorism, to a woman suffering over a death in her family. Many people have discovered The Work's power to solve problems; in addition, they say that through The Work they experience a sense of lasting peace and find the clarity and energy to act, even in situations that had previously seemed impossible.

What the Critics Say

"With warm and nicely chosen interventions with audience members, the authors demonstrate the essentials of accepting realities in others we can't change. It's a hard-charging message, at times relentless, that will shake up any listeners whose lives are held up because of nagging blame or anger toward others." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "The Tao te Ching is much more enlightening."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    After a near death experience , I sought out many spiritual books. This book was suggested by a friend that believed it was the only book anyone ever needed. I found no inspiration in this what so ever ....and I've have seen an arrogance in this friend of mine that is very disappointing. since he embraced this book. Avoid this !!!!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Byron Katie and Stephen Mitchell again?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Byron Katie and Stephen Mitchell ’s performance?

    Lost a friend over this book. He became a self centered ass after embracing this philosophy....Avoid this....Look deep inside yourself and love everyone around you instead...
