About this deal

I would not have read this book if I didn't have to for a book club, and when I first picked it up and started reading I was like "Oh come on. Whereas, what Katie seems to be suggesting is a judgment of the judgment and trying to resolve it by the mere realization that it seems to be causing us stress or may not be true from another perspective. By mastering the simple steps that make up The Work, you too can live a happier, more fulfilled life. Loving What Is will show you step-by-step, through clear and vivid examples, exactly how to use this revolutionary process for yourself. Considering the fact that most of my reading and listening comes from local libraries, that is saying something.

After a long discussion with a good friend who found The Work extremely helpful in dealing with some difficult issues in her life recently, I'm willing to acknowledge that when applied appropriately with greater guidance and/or better explanation, many of my concerns as outlined below can be alleviated.Yet when you get angry with something like the weather, you're trying to fight powers far beyond your control. That said, I can't help but admit that the book provides a structure to dealing with conflicts and issues. My first dumbfounded moment was in her conversation with a mother who was struggling with her young son not doing his chores, not doing his homework and sometimes lying. I truly bought into what she was saying with the first chapter and did a practice exercise, but something did not seem right.

It shows you exactly how to identify and question any thought that would keep you from that freedom. I think perhaps the worst therapy transcription was between Katie and a woman who was raped as a child. It's not the issue that's causing the problem, it's your THOUGHTS about the issue because you haven't investigated them to see that they oppose reality in the moment. Now, make 3 statements that will turn your written statement around to the self, to the other, and to the opposite. But (and there is a 'but') at other times, I would have chosen a different path, a different wording, a different sensitivity, a different way to bring issues into perspectives.Like physical exercise, Katie believes firmly that The Work can transform a person mentally and emotionally – rewiring their brain to eliminate painful or deceptive thoughts. It was especially the third question of the work that bothered me the most - "Who would you be without this thought? In response to this question, the inquirer is asked to make a specific and comprehensive list of how the thought makes him feel.
