About this deal

When a person becomes familiar with the four questions and is capable of placing negative thoughts under the scrutiny of The Work, the questions create a framework that can transform difficult situations in virtually any area. A thought is harmless unless we believe it as it's the attachment to our thoughts that causes suffering. I couldn’t read all of it, I’m not going to lie, but in the end Katie concludes that the woman abused both herself, and the step-father who raped her, because it’s a hard knock life to be a child rapist.

In this case, taking care of ourselves would be choosing the amount of involvement we have with someone who we want something from but who doesn't have the genuine willingness in them to give it to us. I found it disenchanting and troublesome how fundamentalisticly Byron believes in the power of these 4 questions as the sure and only way to salvation, if not now, then later on. for everyone else is at both a little arrogant, and potentially damaging to the people in question (literally).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. Byron Katie invites you to discover the reality in your life, how you react to it, feel about it, then turn it around. When I am discontent, it is because I cannot accept some person, place or principle that is not as I want.

is a very useful question to ask when contemplating what is upsetting us or causing us pain, as long as there's willingness to acknowledge that we may not have all the facts. 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.But the way Katie speaks with him, she leads him to the conclusion that it is him that's being unreasonable or unaccepting because he's equally not accepting their nonacceptance of him essentially.

The book offers a simple yet powerful technique to help us find inner peace and freedom from mental anguish. Clearly this is not Byron's intent, but a mass-market paperback in the self-help section is a potentially tragic lure for people who self-treat despite needing the help of a serious professional.This book has taught me that the rain isn't causing my irritation; my irritation is caused when I attach my belief that it shouldn't be raining. The simplicity of her steps, which breed deep insight in our own perceptions, and preconcieved notions. Instead of scrolling through your social media news feed, this is a much better way to spend your spare time in my opinion. With Justin, what I would have tried to lead him to would be a compassionate understanding of his legitimate need and desire for acceptance.

Undoing one belief at a time, its ultimate impact can dislodge the very center-pole of ego, leading to the realization of who or what we truly are. Katie seems to opt for a rather black and white binary as to what we can and cannot change as, I imagine, this makes "the work" a lot simpler to apply. But the truth is I wasn't ready or even able to hear or understand the concept of projection (even with a Master's in psychology! Stress, depression or unhappiness are the not our enemies, merely the signals that perhaps we are seeking to meet a need of ours through an inefficient or unrealistic strategy.This book is NOT for those who cannot self-analyze at all, or do not have the ability to challenge their way of thinking in insightful ways. And I don't believe a healthy, integrated and sane adult just resigns to accept whatever the other person is doing just because it's "not their business.
