“The only time we suffer is when we believe a thought that argues with what is. When the mind is perfectly clear, what is is what we want.” – Byron Katie, Loving What Is
In a nutshell, the above quote basically sums up today’s book in the challenge. If you want to argue with what is, you will suffer. Period. In fact as Byron Katie says, “If you want reality to be different than what it is, you might as well try to teach a cat to bark.”
So the question of course is, “How can we get to a point where we actually love what is”?
In today’s challenge, we’ll take a quick look at the big ideas behind Byron Katie’s profound book, Loving What Is, and by the end, you’ll have a deeper sense of peace and perspective that you can apply to your life immediately.
And as always, we’d love to hear what your biggest “aha!” moment from today’s book is, and how you’re going to implement its wisdom into your life. So just drop as a comment below, and let the discussions role!
