Books by Byron Katie
Loving What Is is the textbook for The Work and the best place to start on your journey into inquiry. I have read it many times and I often refer to it whenever something is unclear for me.
A Thousand Names for Joy is my favourite book by Katie. Here she vividly shares how she has been experiencing life since her awakening. It is fresh, intriguing and often very funny.
I Need Your Love. Is That True? The subtitle “How to find all the love, approval and appreciation you ever wanted” speaks for itself. It is a radical approach to healing heartbreak and dependency.
Tiger-Tiger, Is It True? A wise, heart-warming and beautifully illustrated story where children can learn that it is their thinking and not their circumstances that is hurting them.
Question Your Thinking, Change the World is a collection of Katie’s quotes and insights on a wide range of topics. I love opening it at random and I always delight in the wisdom it contains.
Who Would You Be Without Your Story? Shares from sessions with Katie at public events on a whole range of topics. Often funny and always wise, packed with gems.
Other books that grow me:
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle is a most inspiring book for those wanting to know who they are, where emotional pain comes from and all the tricks and habits of the mind. It is a great companion to The Work.
A New Earth, also by Eckhart Tolle, revisits and expands on ‘The Power of Now’. This book makes awakening to a higher level of consciousness attainable. Back to basics. It works.
The Diamond in Your Pocket. Gangaji’s message and gentle invitation to just stop doing is as powerful as it is simple. A great introspective journey, it is a book I revisit regularly.
The Untethered Soul. What I love about Michael Singer’s message is that anyone can enlighten themselves by diligently noticing what is happening at what he calls ‘the seat of self’.
Entering The Castle by Caroline Myss is a modern version of Teresa of Avilla’s “Inner Castle”. It is a book you ‘do’ rather than just read, a mind map, where each inner room contains a part of you.
Shadow Dance by David Richo is a fascinating book about our so-called dark side, the ego and how to embrace it. It is packed with exercises leading to deep reflection.
A new approach to money
The Soul of Money by Lynne Twist is not another method to ‘get rich quick’ but an invitation to use money in accord with our compassionate and generous true nature. She is one of my s/heroes.
The Energy of Money by Maria Nemeth is a great way to make an inventory of our hurtful and limiting beliefs about money and their origin. It paves the way for a more balanced and generous attitude.
What science has to say:
The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton offers great scientific explanations regarding the effects that our stressful thoughts have on our physical health. A wonderful voyage into the cells and DNA.
Molecules of Emotion: Why You Feel The Way You Feel by Candace Pert was a great eye-opener for me. I understood clearly where our emotions come from and how we literally get addicted to them.
