Out of nowhere, like a cool breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice, comes Byron Katie and “The Work.
Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended.
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.
” Contrary to popular belief, trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead, once we have done The Work, the thought lets go of us.
Loving What Is will show you step-by-step, through clear and vivid examples, exactly how to use this revolutionary process for yourself.
Loving What Is offers everything you need to learn and live this remarkable process, and to find happiness as what Katie calls “a lover of reality.
” In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed, and over a ten-year period sank further into rage, despair, and thoughts of suicide.
The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now in Loving What Is you can discover the same freedom through The Work.
As Katie says, “It’s not the problem that causes our suffering; it’s our thinking about the problem.
At that point, we can truly love what is, just as it is.
You’ll see people do The Work with Katie on a broad range of human problems, from a wife ready to leave her husband because he wants more sex, to a Manhattan worker paralyzed by fear of terrorism, to a woman suffering over a death in her family.
Many people have discovered The Work’s power to solve problems; in addition, they say that through The Work they experience a sense of lasting peace and find the clarity and energy to act, even in situations that had previously seemed impossible.
If you continue to do The Work, you may discover, as many people have, that the questioning flows into every aspect of your life, effortlessly undoing the stressful thoughts that keep you from experiencing peace.
The untold story of the heretical thinkers who dared to question the nature of our quantum universeEvery physicist agrees quantum mechanics is among humanity’s finest scientific achievements.
For a century, most physicists have followed Niels Bohr’s Copenhagen interpretation and dismissed questions about the reality underlying quantum physics as meaningless.
As a result, questioning the status quo long meant professional ruin.
What Is Real? is the gripping story of this battle of ideas and the courageous scientists who dared to stand up for truth.
But ask what it means, and the result will be a brawl.
And yet, from the 1920s to today, physicists like John Bell, David Bohm, and Hugh Everett persisted in seeking the true meaning of quantum mechanics.
A mishmash of solipsism and poor reasoning, Copenhagen endured, as Bohr’s students vigorously protected his legacy, and the physics community favored practical experiments over philosophical arguments.
Using the same inspired, inquisitive approach, he now turns to our most sacred book, the Bible.
Rob takes us deep into actual passages to reveal the humanity behind the Scriptures.
When considering a passage, we shouldn’t ask “Why did God say .
Rob addresses the concerns of all those who see the Bible as God’s Word but are troubled by the ethical dilemmas, errors, and inconsistencies in Scripture.
In Love Wins, Rob Bell confronted the troubling questions that many people of faith were afraid to ask about heaven, hell, fate, and faith.
What Is the Bible? provides insights and answers that make clear why the Bible is so revered and what makes it truly inspiring and essential to our lives.
You cannot get to the holy without going through the human, Rob tells us.
With What Is the Bible?, he recaptures the Good Book’s magic and reaffirms its power and inspiration to shape and inspire our lives today.
Instant New York Times BestsellerRob Bell, the beloved author of Love Wins and What We Talk About When We Talk About God, goes deep into the Bible to show how it is more revelatory, revolutionary, and relevant than we ever imagined—and offers a cogent argument for why we need to look at it in a fresh, new way.
?” To get to the heart of the Bible’s meaning, we should be asking: “What’s the story that’s unfolding here and why did people find it important to tell it? What was it that moved them to record these words? What was happening in the world at that time? What does this passage/story/poem/verse/book tell us about how people understood who they were and who God was at that time?” In asking these questions, Rob goes beyond the one-dimensional question of “is it true?” to reveal the Bible’s authentic transformative power.
