Katie – Loving what is

CELC

Personal Author:
Katie, Byron.
Title:
Loving what is : four questions that can change your life / Byron Katie written with Stephen Mitchell.
Edition:
1st ed.
Publication info:
New York : Harmony Books, 2002.
Physical description:
xxvi, 258 p. ; 25 cm.
Summary:
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.
