Learning to Love What Is
February 18, 2009
Hosted by Andrea Mathews
If you were to ask me what is the single hardest thing for us to do, the answer would be learning to love what is. Byron Katie, our guest for today, has developed a very clear pathway to learning to love what is, a process that she calls “The Work.” After a ten-year fall into depression, anger and addiction, Byron Katie woke up one morning and realized that all suffering comes from believing our thoughts. By questioning every painful thought she had, she developed this amazing method of inquiry, The Work. Katie has been bringing this work to millions around the world for more than twenty years, through several different means from free events to a 28-day residential Turnaround program. She’s written four best-selling books including two we’ll be talking about today, “Loving What Is” and her latest book out just last year, “Who Would You Be Without Your Story?” Her twenty-two year old mission is to help people stop suffering. If you are suffering, don’t miss this show.
Wednesday at 1 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowement Channel
Your Authentic Self is wise, knows the highest path for your life and has never been wounded. That’s right. You have a part of you that has never been wounded. In fact, that part is the truest essence of who you are. Would you like to access it? Do you know how to use your own internal guidance system? Would you like to have peace? How about a more meaningful life? Your authenticity can give you these seemingly miraculous gifts—but you have to know how to get there. Authentic Living with Andrea Mathews will help you raise your consciousness to the level of your own I AM by interviewing some of the great spiritual experts of today. You’ll learn how to see your true self in the midst of life’s twists and turns and be challenged to think outside the box when it comes to the mysteries of life. Can you afford to miss even one of these shows? Authentic Living airs live Wednesdays at 1 PM Pacific on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
