THOUSAND NAMES FOR JOY Byron Katie with Stephen Mitchell
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 how suffering can be relieved by questioning the thoughts that create it. 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 book has the ability to change that belief. Katie's comments on life, and how to live it, are profound, vibrant and crystal clear, and all rooted in the familiar circumstances of everyday life.
