Inspired by the Tao Te Ching, this is Byron Katie's inspiring and pragmatic approach to achieving an awakened mind and living more simply and profoundly. Using the template of the 81 chapters of the Tao Te Ching she talks about her own experience of living in harmony with the way things are, and the difference between what hurts and what doesn't. Katie has written two books that teach how suffering can be relieved by questioning the thoughts that create it, the thoughts that argue with reality. This questioning takes courage and, in this her third book, she gives readers profound encouragement by showing them the freedom and love that live on the other side of self-inquiry. Many people believe that although enlightenment was attainable thousands of years ago by a few great saints or ascetics, such a state is out of reach of anyone living in the modern world, let alone themselves. This richly detailed account has the ability to change that belief. Katie's comments on life, and how to live it, are profound, vibrant, funny and crystal clear and all rooted in the familiar circumstances of everyday life.

From the internationally bestselling author of the “fascinating epic” (Associated Press) Between Love and Honor comes a rich, sweeping tale based on the captivating true story of the Mata Hari of Russia, featuring a beautiful aristocrat fighting for survival during the deadly upheaval of the Russian Revolution. Born into Russian aristocracy, wealth, and security, Moura never had any reason to worry. But in the upheaval of the Bolshevik Revolution, her entire world crumbles. As her family and friends are being persecuted by Vladimir Lenin’s ruthless police, she falls into a passionate affair with British secret agent Sir Robert Bruce Lockhart. But when he’s abruptly and mysteriously deported from Russia, Moura is left alone and vulnerable. Now, she must find new paths for her survival, even if it means shedding her past and taking on new identities. Some will praise her tenderness and undying loyalty. Others will denounce her lies. But all will agree on one point: Moura embodies Life. Life at all cost. Set against the volatile landscape of 20th-century Russia, The Woman of a Thousand Names brings history to vivid life in a captivating tale about an extraordinary woman caught in the waves of change—with only her wits to save her.

This book is a collection of 15 dialogues that occurred throughout the United States and Europe with Byron Katie. Some of the people who worked with Katie have painful illnesses, others are lovelorn or in messy divorces. Some are simply irritated with a co-worker or worried about money. What they all have in common is a willingness to question, with Katie’s help, the painful thoughts that are the true cause of their suffering. In every case we see how Katie’s acute mind and fierce kindness helps each person dismantle for themselves what is felt to be unshakable reality. Although these dialogues make fascinating reading—some are both hilarious and deeply moving at once—they are intended primarily as teaching tools. Each took place in front of an audience, and Katie never lost connection with that audience, repeatedly reminding each person in the room to follow the dialogues inwardly, asking themselves the questions the participant must ask. The dialogue between Katie and these volunteers is an external enactment of precisely the kind of dialogue each person can have with their own thoughts. The results, even in the seemingly most dire situation, can be unimagined freedom and joy.

What’s in a name? In the Vedic dharma, it is a lot. This book lists and comments on the one thousand names for Soma. Soma is many things. It is a deity; it is a divine force; it is a religious ceremony; it is an astronomical body; it is a plant; it is a mental state; it is an experience of religious being; it is a substance obtained, brewed, and consumed like beer. It is indeed all these, and this volume, the second volume of the series, The Secret History of the Vedas. The Vedas are written in a highly symbolic manner. The purpose of this series, The Secret History of the Vedas, is to unravel and discover the true meaning of the Vedic deities and to reveal the hidden meaning of the Vedas. While the meaning of the Vedas will perhaps be forever beyond the grasp of the humans and worshipers alike, somewhere, deeply embedded in the rcs (mantras) of the Rg Veda, those secrets are there waiting to be uncovered. This series reveals the hidden meaning of the Rg Veda, reassembled from portions of the Vedas --- the Rg Veda SamaVeda, Yajur Veda, and AtharvaVeda --- as well as the Brahmanas, Upanishads, shastras, and other Vedic and Hindu writings. This series is the key that unlocks the secrets of the Vedas. Shrouded in great, immeasurable, antiquity, the Vedas are capable of many interpretations. The Rig Veda --- and all the Vedas --- may be read as mythology, as history, as simple story-telling or simply as a book of poetry. But there is a secret, deeper, meaning. Arriving at this meaning, however, can be very problematic. Reading the Rg Veda in translation often makes little sense, especially if read from the Victorian era translations. Even when considered as simple mythological stories and when reading the Vedas in translations, one cannot help but notice patterns of themes and characters and thereby perceive an inner grandeur and depth of meaning. If the stanzas and rcs (mantras) are properly de-coded, and the proper passwords understood, the Vedas come alive and reveal a vast repository of occult knowledge concerning the nature of existence, divinity, and everything within. It is a “Secret History” not only because of the occult nature of this knowledge but because so few understand the meaning of the language and passwords of the Vedas. Armed with knowledge of the passwords used in the Vedas and with a proper interpretation, this hidden meaning, even when read in English translation, is ready to be unlocked becomes intelligible. This is the purpose of this series and of the present volume. There are three great themes in the Vedic dharma --- Existence, Bliss, and Consciousness. This volume is an examination of Soma --- Bliss.

“Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don't have to like it... it's just easier if you do.” ... -Byron Katie This book has been created with what the participants of the FMK Wisdom School shared from the bottom of their hearts. The participants of FMK Wisdom School shared their experiences of the times when they believed negative and stressful thoughts arguing with reality and of the times when they didn’t believe them. They wrote about their processes and transformations during their journey of love-in-action by giving examples. They created this book in their journey to themselves with the consciousness of considering everyone complete and whole as they are and by realizing the person, they have been waiting for was themselves. These people who have changed their lives with Byron Katie’s The Work method, 4 questions and Turnarounds have things to say to you. We invite you to hear us. “Real happiness is the unconditional happiness that exists in the present moment beyond ego consciousness.” -Feza Karakaş

‘Illuminating...on the cutting edge’ Jon Kabat-Zinn 'Byron Katie has rocked my world and shaken loose my mind more thoroughly than any other spiritual teacher I've ever encountered' Elizabeth Gilbert How Asking Four Questions Can Free Your Mind, Open Your Heart and Turn Your World Around In A Mind At Home With Itself, bestselling author and founder of The Work, Byron Katie explains that emotions such as sadness, anger and resentment come from believing our negative thoughts. But when we learn to question those thoughts, they lose their power. And when this happens, our minds are free to turn towards others and ourselves with a spirit of generosity. Byron Katie gives hugely popular workshops every year all over the world, in places like churches, prisons, universities, schools and corporations. She speaks at organisations like Facebook and Stanford University and is also involved with a programme for cancer patients. Charismatic and compassionate, there’s good reason why The Times has called her events ‘riveting’, and Time magazine has named her ‘a spiritual innovator for the new millennium’.

Intertwined with Rosemary McCarthys personal journey of shifting from an angry, frustrated person blaming others for her unhappiness, to someone who now lives content with herself and in harmony with others, Your Journey to Peace brings the esoteric to the practical and maps out how to become your Best Self and feel empowered in all areas of your life. It also explains: Why we are the way we are individually and collectively; and how we got this way. How we find peace within ourselves by making peace in our relationships and all situations. That God does not allow for suffering! We create it by upholding dualistic concepts of me-and-you and us-and-them that we embraced at our beginnings and before form. The precursor to the Big Bang was the need for form to play out those dualistic concepts we chose at our beginnings: all our issues stem from those original concepts based on ideas of separation rather than unity. That understanding time makes the seven-day creation model valid. What are the extraterrestrials origins? How we can reconcile the growing evidence of our past association with the ETs and our scriptures and beliefs. Our need to embrace the Indigenous peoples connection to Gaia. That we chose to be here at this time of the Shift to bring about our personal and Gaias Ascensions.
