Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life

“That’s the end of all war, when the mind can rest in itself because it trusts the answers to the questions that would wake it up. It trusts to the point where the ego can finally rest and just be at home in itself.”

Episode Summary: The incredible Byron Katie is an American speaker and author who teaches a method of self-investigation, known as "Byron Katie's Work" or simply "The Work”. In this important episode, Byron asks you to question everything you have been taught and learned in your lifetime. As you listen carefully to this episode, you will learn how to take your current reality to another level of consciousness by asking 4 powerful questions that will help you find the true meaning of who you are and who you are being in the world.

Some Questions I Ask:

  • What is your sole purpose in this life?
  • How can we find our purpose and live our true identity?
  • Why can victimhood be so addictive?
  • How do you react to the events of your life when you believe in them?
  • How can we analyze our thoughts and understand our reactions to different situations in our life?
  • How can we de-identify ourselves from everything we have learned so far?

In This Episode You Will Learn:

Once a person understands themselves by nature, they understand everything.”

In 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year spiral into depression and self-loathing, Byron Katie woke up one morning in a state of joy. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Her simple yet powerful process of self-inquiry, which she calls The Work, consists of four questions and the turnaround, which is a way of experiencing the opposite of what you believe.

Katie has been bringing The Work to millions of people for more than thirty years. Her public events, weekend workshops, intensives, and nine-day School for The Work have brought freedom to people all over the world.

Her books include the bestselling Loving What IsI Need Your Love—Is That True?A Thousand Names for Joy, and A Mind at Home with Itself. For more information, visit thework.com.
