Summary

The Work on Grief:
"He shouldn't have been drinking and driving."
"I need him to come back and say goodbye."
"People should not suffer."
"I should have been with him when he died."

Sara grieves for her partner, Rodney, who died while driving drunk. A young woman is angry with God for letting her father suffer and die of brain cancer. The two women speak about guilt, sorrow, resentment, and separation.

Critic reviews

"Byron Katie's Work is a great blessing for our planet.....The Work acts like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through that illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being. Joy, peace, and love emanate from it as your natural state." (Eckhart Tolle)

Deeply disappointing. Stoic not spiritual.

This is not a book. It’s a talk/session of a type of bereavement group. There were some enjoyable moments, but I found the author’s understanding of spirituality just very staunch stoicism. Apparently for her, God equals the “reality” of what actually happened. So live with what happened even if you did something questionable. It is what it isit cannot change but it’s not to be questioned. I don’t understand how you can learn or grow from that thinking. It’ll stop your pain, but you can just keep going doing self-centered stuff that hurt others? . Yes we should let go of our suffering, many of us hang onto it like a badge, but I don’t think she has the full picture. This talk was all mental. I wouldn’t recommend this title to anybody grieving that is in need of something more.
There must be better material out there.
We all have questions when people die, like, “Did we do the right thing?” Sometimes. it actually wasn’t but we have to come to terms with that, I understand, but some of the things admitted to in this audio seems way beyond, almost pathological. I feel some actions there should be reviewed and understood more plainly, maybe by a therapist.
Anyhow, for those of us who actually believe in more spiritual aspects of life and death, I don’t think we should doubt when dreams or something else “Spiritual or magical” can settle some questions of the afterlife for us.
Again, this title just wasn’t for me.
