I Need Your Love – Is That True?: How to Stop Seeking Love, Approval, and Appreciation and Start Finding Them Instead

The mind is a powerful tool that can help us along our way or hold us back with negative thinking.  When our mind becomes flooded with destructive thoughts our life is in turn interpreted in a manner. When we believe that we are unworthy of love, respect or kindness we begin to look for things in our lives that will validate these ideas we have of ourselves.

You don’t have to believe everything you think and Byron Katie does a beautiful job of challenging the thought process in her book  I Need Your Love – Is That True.      Her book is an easy read and her techniques can be applied to any area of your life where you may be struggling were it be work, family or your marriage.

Her down to earth nature and straight to the point manner makes her material easy read and understand.  Some of her quotes provide great inspiration. Quotes such as….

 

“Placing the blame or judgment on someone else leaves you powerless to change your experience; taking responsibility for your beliefs and judgments gives you the power to change them”

 

“It’s not your job to like me – it’s mine”

 

“As long as you think that the cause of your problem is “out there”—as long as you think that anyone or anything is responsible for your suffering—the situation is hopeless. It means that you are forever in the role of victim, that you’re suffering in paradise.”

“A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.”
