A Thousand Names for Joy

Rating
Byron Katie is one of the truly great and inspiring teachers of our time. I encourage everyone to immerse themselves in this phenomenal book. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer In her first two books, "Loving What Is" and "I Need Your Love Is That True?" Byron Katie showed how suffering can be ended by questioning the stressful thoughts that create it. Now, in "A Thousand Names for Joy," she encourages us to discover the freedom that lives on the other side of inquiry. Stephen Mitchell the renowned translator of the Tao Te Ching selected provocative excerpts from that ancient text as a stimulus for Katie to talk about the most essential issues that face us all: life and death, good and evil, love, work, and fulfillment. With her stories of total ease in all circumstances, Katie does more than describe the awakened mind; she lets you see it, feel it, in action."

Reviews

Best-selling inspirational author Katie links up with Mitchell, translator of Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching, to explain what that classic text means for you. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

This unusual collaboration brings together the Way (the Tao) and the Work, Katie's form of self-inquiry and path to joy. Katie is the author of Loving What Is, and Mitchell, the noted translator of the Tao, is her husband. In each chapter of this new book, Mitchell has presented Katie with a passage from the Tao and noted down her exposition on the theme. (This oral format can result in choppy, repetitive text.) Katie's own "awakening" came in 1986, after 10 years of depression. One morning she felt a sense of freedom from her overwhelming distress, a feeling she calls "a falling-away of the self." This freedom, she claims, is available to anyone who practices the Work, which consists of asking oneself four questions intended to turn around fixed ideas and dismantle painful, knotted thoughts about the past. Four dialogues Katie has conducted with seekers illustrate the Work in action. Her belief that reality is good and can only be grasped if we live in the present moment resonates with many traditional spiritual teachings, and in this genuine and fresh spiritual manifesto, Katie's engaging personality springs from the page.
