Hands Down, the best book I've ever read in my entire life. If you're the type of person that has been "studying" and attempting to integrate love into your life but keep "coming back" to those same issues and triggers again and again and again, this is the book for you. Alternately, if you are waiting for your loved ones to speak, acknowledge, and recognize all that you are but it never happens, this is the book for you. Drop the study, drop the "lessons". It is no longer necessary to trudge th ...more

This book is a TREASURE! The words jump off the page and ooze LOVE. I've read many spiritual books, many of them gems that propelled me forward on my journey. This one, however, is like travelling at warp speed through your own journey to higher consciousness. There's nothing to practice. No special rules to follow. No worries about "getting it" or "doing it right." Through his words, Matt gives you the key to your own heart along with the knowing that your heart is the essence of every other he ...more

This is a MUST-READ for anyone who wants to live a more heart-centered life and enjoy the journey. I love this book and I love Matt Kahn's teachings. I have been following Matt on YouTube for two years because everything he says resonates with me on the deepest level. If you are looking for a new and fresh approach to living your best life in this time of dynamic change and awakening consciousness, I invite you to read "Whatever Arises, Love That." It holds the key to happiness that many of us m ...more

Recommends it for: Matt Kahn followers
From the little that I know about Matt Kahn and his teachings and followers, this book seemed intriguing and insightful. I pre-ordered it on Amazon and was excited to read it.

But I just can't do it. 25 pages in and I'm done. I like a lot of his ideas, and I am compelled by the charge to love, love, love. But his cosmic teachings are just too much for me. I just left behind a religion with a peculiar cosmic view, and I'm not inclined to easily pick up another. On top of that, his claims to have b

I first got to know Matt Kahn by seeing his videos, which I found to be enlightening; he told us that when listening to his words we received healing energy.

He also informed us that his words were channelled and often he didn´t remember what he had said, since they weren´t his own words. (I´ve experienced this myself on one occasion when spontaneously channelling advice to a friend.) Often he doesn´t know what he thinks about a certain topic, until he is asked, after which the channelled words f

Best. Book. Ever. Speaks right to my heart. It's the next "spiritual classic." Those on the planet ready for a new vibe and change will "get" the messages and energies here. Matt's teachings make life an even greater joy. Timeless. Powerful. Profound. Loving reading it many times through as the messages go deeper and deeper into my consciousness each time. Sharing with friends, family, and my whole community. Gotta Tweet Jim Carrey and Oprah about this one!!! It's time is NOW. OUR time is now. M ...more

I have been following Matt Kahn for approximately a year and was thrilled when I learned he had written a book. I ordered it immediately and dived in to read it. I love his philosophy about life. He suggests that we embrace everything we face, without judging it. Find a way to accept it. Talk to our body parts that feel distressing. All problems that arise are likened to children desiring loving attention, according to him. After trying out his ideas I have found much soothing information which ...more

My wife gave me this book after she tried to read it and gave up. Being an English Literature major she said it was so poorly written she couldn't go on. Being open to trying new books, I tried to embrace the book, but after several chapters, I had to agree with her. While the intent of the book is to help people on their own spiritual journey as the author describes his own journey, I found the writing not up to the task. Sorry I tried to give it my best shot. Not recommended.

To be very honest, it was a surprising read.
When I've started to read this book. I was hooked from the beginning, I was turning the pages, finding some interesting answers when the author lost me...for a few grab me until the end.

While reading, I've tried the meditation, I've tried to smile more and to make peace with my inner child and I was happy. I'm probably on a long road to find myself but this book was a wonderful way to express myself differently.
Hope I will be able to stay on

Exquisitely beautiful just like Matt himself. Difficult to describe but life changing. I encourage you to watch a video of his on YouTube for a taste of this incredible
Mans teaching. Even that word is not exactly correct
Suffice to say the book is wonderful and inspiring and encourages you to think in different ways.

First introduced to Matt Kahn at a LIVE Conference last year, I didn't grasp his 'I LOVE YOU' exercise. Later, I heard him on a podcast and totally feel in love with his teachings. Listening to every youtube video that comes out...I find myself saying "YES!" outloud because I not only totally get his teaching, it's what I've been living and not been able to define or explain. I was so excited to see he had a book that came out in January. It's a unique perspective. Something that might be too mu ...more

This book is the answer to a prayer. I was feeling very stuck in my spiritual growth – even feeling as though I was going backwards sometimes . This book miraculously showed up on my Kindle desktop one day as a sample . I took that as a sign , started reading and bought the book straightaway. Every chapter , indeed every word , is revelation . By applying this simple technique of loving whatever arises , my life has changed in only the last two weeks. I'm also watching Matt's video

If you love MK, this is kind-of a must though I preferred the audio version being "spoken" to me in soundbites in Matt's oh-so-familiar voice because the deepest activation is in the delivery more so than the content (to know what I mean, you just have to look him up on YouTube). As intellectual meaning, it may not deliver all that many surprises to you if you are in that particular part of the journey where its all been joining up coherently for some time...though again, it might...but there is ...more

Even though this book had some really good elements that are grounded in psychotherapy and/or Buddhism, I can only give this book 3 stars. That is because of the flowery, hippy dippy terms (divine, universe, vibrations, angels, ascension, etc.) that are used profusely throughout the book. Also, I just don’t have it in me to believe that someone is talking to “Ascended Masters” in the great beyond. I can’t do it and sadly it will be off-putting for many people who pick up this book, which is sad, ...more

A must read book! To be honest, it was hard to get into at first, so I put it down for awhile. When I knew "it was time," I picked the book back up and didn't stop reading the knowledge contained within the covers of the book. I bought the book a few months before I needed it, but when I did, I was ready to soak up the contents with gratitude. So very thankful that this book was written, and will be referencing it for the healing mantras and more that it shares with all of us.

So much wisdom on a very "few" pages - a brilliant guide that will definitely help you to improve your life (in practice). I am against any mandatory things in life but this book should be on all school bookshelves.

Thank you Matt.

Magnificent book! Clearly divinely inspired. The most beautiful book on loving yourself I have ever read. So glad I found it. I am forever grateful for this book for myself, those I love and those I work with. Thank you Matt Kahn.

A unique way of looking at life. Practicing this spiritual practice is a win win situation for all involved.
Learning more about ego and what is termed the "inflammation" is a another way to understand how works and does not work.

The philosophy is in line with the new thought science of mind transcendentalism. I hope I spelled that correctly.

This book is for anyone who wishes to get a deeper glimpse at love.

I liked this book so much that I forgot to review it. It is a timely read for my current situation. Is it possible to love cancer? or pain? The answers to life's biggest questions can be found inside yourself. The trick may be loving yourself enough to ask. The payoff? Less fear and more love for all of us.

This book was a part of our book club that I am in, so it is not something I chose to read myself. It was very simplistic in concept - whatever is going on in your life/emotions/physical/mental life - love the shit out of it. There were some lovely passages and ideas throughout the book, a few things resonated. However overall I found the whole book a bit repetitive.

We go through our experiences for reasons that serve our highest purpose. We are who we are today because we persevered.

It became my 'bible' since the day I bought it. Practicing Matt's words with practical actionable steps I have anchored relaxation anywhere, anytime. Audio course of the same book is beyond mind-blowing. I can't thank the messages enough. My life's richer thanks to a bullshit-free approach on how to go from any emotion and thought to love in action. Thank you Matt and all the people who've helped to bring it about. I am empowered to be exactly who I am with my imperfections that make me perfect.

I listened to the audiobook from a library and know I'll have to own this now so I can refer back to it. An incredibly useful take on spiritual truth, especially for sensitive spiritual people who have trouble loving themselves. Really, I think this is an incredibly profound perspective that teaches using love to integrate all parts of yourself, rather than rejecting the ones you wish to hide in the guise of detachment and transcendence... A mistake I've made many times. So glad he has put this ...more

This book serves as a miraculous guide to self love, understanding inflamed egos and personalities, and provokes many unspoken truths. A must read for all on a spiritual journey to awakening deeper levels of consciousness. This book has truly changed what I perceive about life and has dialed my course in a direction to uplift love for the sake of all.

Love this!

An excellent book. Another book that requires the reader to be ready for it but it was timely for me and I learned so much from this. I highly recommend it to anyone struggling with anything in life and who is open enough to take these teachings seriously. I certainly do.

“When someone says words that may not feel good in your body, seem sarcastic in tone, and are meant to judge versus uplift you, this only offers you greater opportunities to raise the vibration of your response.

By responding to anyone's criticism with love, compassion and acceptance, you are stepping forward as a master of relationships to create your own experiences, which has nothing to do with how anyone treats you.”
“If your life were any different, you'd feel exactly the same. This is the irony of life's eternal perfection. Once you no longer rely on outside circumstances, in order to feel good, or even require feeling good, in order to be relaxed and open, something far greater than the tracking of ups, downs, gains and losses awakens within you. This is the heart of awakening.” 9 likes
