Overview

This book is a collection of fifteen dialogues with Byron Katie that occurred throughout the United States and Europe. Some of the people who worked with Katie had painful illnesses, others were lovelorn or in messy divorces, some were simply irritated with a co-worker or worried about money. What they all had in common was a willingness to question, with Katie's help, the painful thoughts that are the true cause of all suffering. In every case, we see how Katie's acute mind and fierce kindness helped each person dismantle for him- or herself what was felt to be unshakable reality.

Katie Byron's book has changed my life. It has given me answers to things that I have struggled with my entire life. Her book sets you on a journey of discovery and gives you the tools you need to be joyful and content in your life. It is just that profound and reading the book is the only way to fully understand how it can impact your life.

This book is a series of dialogues taken from workshops and seminars, so you get a good flavor of what it would be like to attend one. I first discovered "Loving What Is" a few years ago when I was going through a difficult time, and couldn't get my brain to stop the obsessive thoughts of "why did this happen?" "what did I do wrong?" and most of all "why can't I get over this?" In less than an hour of doing The Work, my entire perspective changed. It was miraculous. Needless to say, I've been a believer ever since. Katie's process takes patience and mental flexibility to do it right. It's a relief to read these dialogues because I realize I am not the only one who reaches these obstacles in my thinking; and I get to see how Katie helps people break through, which I can then apply myself. I would also recommend the book by author C.J. Good, entitled "Little Gifts of Sustainable Contentment" which is composed of short, meditational passages for each day of the year. It is very good for daily meditation. Primarily thought of as a book geared for people recovering from eating disorders, but could really apply to whatever addiction one may suffer, including selfishness. Both books compliment my daily routine. When read each morning it gets me started off on the right foot, and reminds me to keep my selfish tendencies under wraps. Some good places for the C.J. Good book are the glove box of the car, night stand, purse, kitchen table, the bathroom, or wherever it helps you to remember to read this everyday. (May not yet be available at B & N)
