In this final exercise, you are asked to imagine yourself in the presence of that situation or relationship, free from that stressful thought. He reached for the small one and looked very shocked as I moved it away and put the large piece in his hand, and his face lit up as he began to move the cookie to his mouth. I think perhaps the worst therapy transcription was between Katie and a woman who was raped as a child. In response to this question, the inquirer is asked to make a specific and comprehensive list of how the thought makes him feel.

There is a much more helpful understanding in realizing the needs which motivate our resistances and judgments are legitimate, human and reasonable.The book's basic tenet is that all our suffering is caused by our attachment to the stories we create about our thoughts. Numerous times I had to sit back and contemplate the book for a long long time before I felt prepared to continue.

This was a helpful reminder for me to think about what areas I still have "should" statements in and to explore why. 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.After you've answered The Work’s four questions, you should have a better understanding of the thoughts that are bringing you down and making you feel stressed. Finally, the idea that we should just accept everything as is ("it is what it is" she said over and over) is absurd.

This made it an odd book to read for me because usually when I resonate with the basic principles and premises an author is describing I usually also resonate with the way they suggest to live them out etc.It can be hard to swallow because, once you start doing The Work, you'll be confronted with the idea that you cause your own suffering. Sure, it might help you overcome your fears or fix your relationship, but it won't address money or career issues, right? Liked how the author points out that most of our suffering is caused by our perception of things and not the "thing" itself. You might also want to visit Katie's Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook pages, and her live-streaming webcast page, livewithbyronkatie.

Can definitely see how this book can help people, but I think it was a little scatter-brained in a few parts. What Katie's ideology here seems to reflect is a cutting off of the conversation because it's vulnerable and leaves us open to suffering. 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. The Work consists of four key questions that dissect the things we believe and hold them up to the light of reality.I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but that when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. It shows you exactly how to identify and question any thought that would keep you from that freedom. Many people are, and unfortunately, most are resigned to living a stressful life – as there seems to be no alternative. When I am discontent, it is because I cannot accept some person, place or principle that is not as I want.
