  • "Fabulous!"

    Story

    Okay, I love Tolle, Dyer, Chodron, Chopra, Ruiz, Byron Katie, and many others, and that won't change. But for the clearest explanation of how to disregard that 'nut' running commentary in my head, this book wins hands down. It is funny, I mean oh so, 'oh my goodness of course' belly laugh funny, and sensible and simple. I love simple. If you really want to understand who 'you' are...the real you behind the insanity, this is a great book. I found the narrator to be fine, not perfect but I had no problem listening to him. Listened all the way through first day and started over.

    I actually didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I am, when I listened to the narration, I was not pleased with the voice. I thought it dry and unenthusiastic. But 10 hours in, I can say Mr. Stewart was an excellent choice. His pacing is excellent, his enunciation clear.

    The Course can be daunting, and I truly believe being able to listen as well as read will be helpful to any serious Course student.

    A Course in Miracles, also known as "the Course" or ACIM, was scribed by Dr. Helen Schucman. It is a self-study course that aims to assist listeners, readers, and students in achieving spiritual transformation. Book 1: Text is largely theoretical, and sets forth the concepts on which the Course's thought system is based. Its ideas contain the foundation for the lessons in Book 2, the Workbook for Students.

    Overall

    I loved the other Don Miguel Ruiz audios and they are transforming me... but I would not have ordered this one had I realized it was abridged. The others are not, so I didn't even check. With that said, I still gleaned a lot from the book but wanted to mention the abridgement in case that is important to other potential listeners.

    You will feel much more in touch with your real 'Self' after listening to Toltec wisdom.

  • Memories of the Afterlife: Life-Between-Lives Stories of Personal Transformation

    "Someone needs to get fired..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Someone needs to get fired, dismissed without reference, for the audio production of this book. I don't blame the narrators, since both the male and female narrators, use the same breathless, idiotic delivery. It's the sing-song voice adults use to talk baby talk to infants. Let me ask you this, would a physics book be performed this way? I hated it so much this book sat in my library for about six months, even though I'd enjoyed Michael Newton's earlier work, until I realized that I could put the book on "faster" speed and that helped a little bit. At least enough so that I was able to listen to it.

    Still, if you have a choice, get the written version of this. You'll thank me.

  • The Power of Your Spirit: A Guide to Joyful Living

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Almost every single example she cited was someone discovering they needed to become healers, life coaches, etc. Disappointingly out of touch.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not Sonia, and I'm a fan of her books. I'm interested in solutions for people who aren't ditching their responsibilities, but living up to them.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope, as a writer and teacher, Sonia Choquette returns to her previous form with her feet back on the ground.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I found the thesis clearly stated and Deepak Chopra's performance just fine. But I was not convinced, the book seemed to be lacking evidence or supporting proofs, either scientific or anecdotal. Not his strongest outing.

Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are and learn to live and breathe freely.

You don’t fully experience what’s happening now, because you’re too busy thinking about what needs doing tomorrow, or distracted by what happened yesterday. And all the time your mind is chattering with commentary or judgement. Mindfulness allows you to experience the moment instead of just rushing through it. Being mindful opens you up to new ideas and new ways of doing things, reducing stress and increasing your enjoyment of life.
