I've found this book by Byron Katie "Loving What Is". I think it is wonderful, especially for us daydreamers, who want to escape from our problems. Byron Katie wants us to see the reality, as it is, without having negative thoughts about it. She uses four questions to find the reality behind the problems. She doesn't want us to ignore the problems, but just to see the facts and the reality. This will lead to a peaceful mind. She says we can only care about our business, so it is important to know what is my business, your business or God's business (that is reality, all things that happen).

I'm very impressed by her, especially as she said that she was a very unhappy and angry person before she "woke up to reality" as she calls it.

Has anyone heard about her before or had even tried this Work?

@ daniel - It seems that you enjoy your daydreaming, I don't  - I want to get rid of it, as it has  kept me from living the life I wanted. I have a family, but sometimes I don't feel connected with them and drift off in my fantasy-land. So what you think that is negative about living in the moment is what I think is positive about it. I hope that "Loving What Is" helps me to reduce daydreaming.

@ Kwan Kwan - This book isn't about a certain religion, I would say it isn't about religion at all. It is about reality, how life really is, without our negative thoughts. Byron Katie sometimes uses the word "God" as a synonym for "Reality". It is also mainly about "Love" - nobody really wants to hurt another human being, if his feelings aren't confused.
