Quotes & Excerpts

I have simply stopped arguing with reality. How do I know the wind should blow? It's blowing. How do I know this is the highest order? It's happening. Arguing with 'what is' is like teaching a cat to bark. It's not very fulfilling. I am my friend and no longer confused. The way I know that reality is good is that when I argue the point I experience tension, fear and frustration. I lose - not sometimes, but 100% of the time. It just doesn't feel natural inside: no balance, no connection. I want reality to change? Hopeless. Let me change my thinking. Some of us mentally argue with 'what is.' Others of us attempt to control and change 'what is,' and then tell ourselves and others that we actually had something to do with any apparent change that took place. This leaves no connection or room for God in my life. In the peaceful experience of no opposition to God, I remain aware of my nature: clear, vibrant, a friend, a listener.

?Good Lord! Where did Byron Katie come from? She?s the real McCoy. Her Work is amazingly effective?a simple, straightforward antidote to the suffering we unnecessarily create for ourselves. She asks us to believe nothing, but provides a surprisingly effective and simple way to cut through the tangle of delusions we wrap ourselves in. Just reading the exchanges in Loving What Is, I can admit things I didn?t want to admit and stop torturing myself in ways I didn?t realize I was doing.? -- David Chadwick, author of Crooked Cucumber: The Life and Zen Teaching of Shunryu Suzuki

?Suppose you could find a simple way to embrace your life with joy, stop arguing with reality, and achieve serenity in the midst of chaos? That is what Loving What Is offers. It is no less than a revolutionary way to live your life. The question is: are we brave enough to accept it?? -- Erica Jong, author of Fear of Flying

?Byron Katie?s Work is a great blessing for our planet. The root cause of suffering is identification with our thoughts, the ?stories? that are continuously running through our minds. Byron Katie?s Work acts like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through that illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being. Joy, peace, and love emanate from it as your natural state. In Loving What Is, you have the key. Now use it.? -- Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now

?Loving What Is is filled with the essence of wisdom. Katie?s Work is a wonderful, transformative practice for anyone interested in spiritual growth.? -- Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within
