Look no further, you've found the right book
Reviewed in the United States on December 8, 2017
I’ve been practicing The Work for about 5 years.
The first book of Katie’s I read was” Loving What Is”, for a class assignment.
The second one I read was, “I need Your Love, Is That True” and the third one was her newest, “A Mind At Home With Itself”. So this read, my fourth one, was a little out of order considering when the other books were written but after reading her newest one, I wanted a little bit more.
I’ve always wondered what life looked like for Katie who has been living The Work since February 1986. I mean … how alive is The Work in the One who created it, and how can she state that she has never suffered one little bit since discovering The Work?!
This book gives a glimpse into the One. It was refreshing, enlightening, supportive and it validated that even though I am infinite (if that is even, really true), I still have a physical body.
I find that the unraveling process, just like The Work, is always in motion … never ceasing. I wonder if I will ever reach that place of indescribable joy that Katie possesses. She can marvel the act of someone pouring her a cup of tea and find such gratitude in the act that it brings her to tears. I have not experienced such gratitude and wonder, but I’d like to.
It’s hard not to compare myself to her and wonder if or when I will reach that place that Katie has realized. I could say that I suffer sometimes, but if I question any thought that surrounds any of my suffering, I begin to realize that I never suffer … NEVER! And it is in this ‘Aha’ realization that I understand why Katie has never suffered as well.
This is a delicious book! I devoured every page, highlighted scores of lines and added mini Post-IT notes to mark pages. I can return time and time again and get nourished. What’s not to love about that?!
So … off I go to experience my joy and gratitude and … question all of my thoughts that cause me any kind of suffering.
Join me … won’t you?
