Welcome to Living Heart

The Work of Byron Katie is a way of identifying and questioning thoughts that cause anger, fear, confusion, disappointment, tiredness, depression, addiction and sometimes even violence. Experience the happiness of undoing those thoughts through The Work, and allow your mind to return to its true, peaceful, creative nature.

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. Albert Einstein

Through The Work, our true nature becomes available to us, also when we experience stress, when we are desperate, angry or sad, or when we experience our family, partners, friends or colleagues as adversaries or enemies. There is no situation in our lives that we cannot approach from inner peace and with an open heart. Through the Work you will find that each situation is a source of transformation.

I don’t let go of my thoughts. I take them to inquiry, and then they let go of me.
Byron Katie

We often seek love in others and fulfillment in relationships, work and life. This creates fear, insecurity, a feeling of rejection, inadequacy or not being good enough. What we often do in those moments is, instead of returning to the silence and the openness of our hearts, that we start to work on the circumstances or ourselves. We don’t get what we need, we think, and that means that we should improve ourselves and our lives, or that we should try harder. What we don’t see in those moments is that we don’t fail and that we are not inadequate, but that a mirror is being held up to us. In that mirror we can observe that our true nature and our being are endlessly larger than any sense and any thought about how things should be or what we need.

Once we become aware of this, we stop looking for solutions outside of ourselves. We discover that it suffices to notice what is going on inside of us, to perceive that we are not in touch with ourselves, that we view the other or our life as an adversary or an enemy, that we are no longer open to what life really wants to convey to us. As soon as we become aware of this, we can return to the underlying peace – the wonder of being. That is our true nature. It’s our birthright.

People are starving for love, not knowing their heart is a magical kitchen. Open your heart. Open your magical kitchen and refuse to walk around the world begging for love. In your heart is all the love you need. Your heart can create any amount of love, not just for yourself, but for the whole world.
Don Miguel Ruiz

The Work is simple, radical, and life-changing. Anyone with an open mind can do it. Let a Living Heart be your guide.
