Description

She describes self-inquiry as an embodiment, in words, of the wordless questioning that had woken up in her on that February morning. But I have to admit that the four questions were insightful and actually helped me to see through a lot of issues I have been dealing with lately.

If you cherry pick quotes out of this book you'll end up with a collection of seemingly valuable maxims, which I assume are the reasons for this book's success. Loving What Is by Byron Katie is a self-help book that teaches readers how to relieve suffering by questioning their thoughts and beliefs. When a person becomes familiar with the four questions and is capable of placing negative thoughts under the scrutiny of The Work, the questions create a framework that can transform difficult situations in virtually any area. The Work consists of four key questions that dissect the things we believe and hold them up to the light of reality. For instance, if I want to have someone else be a part of my life in a significant way, and they are important to me, then how they choose to live and operate is going to have significant effects on me.I’ve also added Loving What Is by Byron Katie to my collection of Philosopher’s Notes--distilling the Big Ideas into 6-page PDF and 20-minute MP3s on 600+ of the BEST self-development books ever. The problem I have is the potentially dangerous way that she applies a universal logic to dealing with complex problems. Byron Katie’s wisdom-filled words and Hans Wilhelm’s vivid, magical illustrations combine to make a book that can transform the lives of even very young children.

Through this course of inquiry, Katie believes that anyone can be released from the suffering that is holding him or her captive. She claims things like "there's no such thing as verbal abuse" and asks questions like "can you absolutely be sure that your dad doesn't love you? As reports spread about the transformations they felt they were experiencing through The Work, she was invited to present it publicly elsewhere in California, then throughout the United States, and eventually in Europe and across the world.I got some points as to what she was saying, especially when she talked about how you control your own thinking. A life-transforming system for discarding the stories at the source of our suffering, this is your guide to finding inner peace and happiness.

Based her own experience, she now shares her method of conquering depression and unhappiness with people all over the world so they can lead a more fulfilling life. Can definitely see how this book can help people, but I think it was a little scatter-brained in a few parts. So in some cases, "loving what is," means accepting the fact that someone else's behavior affects us a certain way and then asking for help from them and compassionately communicating our needs while not demanding or expecting the other person to meet them - as we understand our needs are ultimately our own responsibility and the other person may only be one strategy or source of meeting our needs. She says there's no point in judging people who litter, because the litter is already there, therefore it is part of the desert.This took me awhile to figure out, as to why I wasn't jiving with her application of the basic premise of the book, which I agreed and agree with - that it's generally much more healthy to accept what is rather than resist or argue with it.
