Loving What Is
Author: Byron Katie, Stephen Mitchell
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 ten-year period sank further into rage, despair, and thoughts of suicide.

Her work is amazingly effective, a simple, straightforward antidote to the suffering we unnecessarily create for ourselves. She asks us to believe nothing, but provides a surprisingly effective and simple way to cut through the tangle of delusions we wrap ourselves in. Just reading the exchanges in LOVING WHAT IS I can admit things I didn't want to admit and stop torturing myself in ways I didn't realize I was doing. This is a simple way to embrace life and joy and stop arguing with reality.

Although the exercises seemed a little wacky at first, when I actually did them I found them extraordinarily helpful to all sorts of personal and professional relationships!

I never like self help books, but this one did have something to offer. Byron Katie looks at life with a unique perspective that works for her and I am trying to apply her suggestions to my own life. It has only been a few weeks and already I can tell a difference and all the changes are within me. Coming to terms with and accepting the truth that you cannot change another person is invigorating. Just letting them be can free your own life and those around you feel better too.
