Présentation de l'éditeur
In this powerful book of quotations, Byron Katie talks about the most essential issues that face us all - love, sex, and relationships; health, sickness, and death; parents and children; work and money; and self-realization. The profound, lighthearted wisdom embodied within is not theoretical; it is absolutely authentic. Not only will this book help you on many specific issues, but it will point you toward your own wisdom and will encourage you to question your own mind, using the four simple yet incredibly powerful questions of Katie's process of self-inquiry, called The Work. Katie is a living example of the clear, all-embracing love that is our true identity. Because she has thoroughly questioned her own mind, her words shine with the joy of understanding. ''People used to ask me if I was enlightened,'' she says, ''and I would say, 'I don't know anything about that. I'm just someone who knows the difference between what hurts and what doesn't. ' I'm someone who wants only what is. To meet as a friend each concept that arose turned out to be my freedom. '' --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
Biographie de l'auteur
Byron Katie, founder of The Work, has one job: to teach people how to end their own suffering. When Katie appears, lives change. As she guides people through her simple and powerful process of inquiry, called The Work, they find again and again that their stressful beliefs - about life, other people, or themselves - radically and positively shift. Through The Work, anyone with an open mind can learn to identify, question, and heal the thoughts that cause them pain. Katie not only teaches that all the problems in the world originate in our thinking: she gives us the tool to open our minds and set ourselves free. It has been her heart's desire and tireless privilege to Work with millions of people at free public events, in prisons, hospitals, churches, corporations, universities, and schools.
