I'm halfway through this and while i enjoy some of the stuff he has to say. Every second sentence he makes himself laugh. Example Him: "When something bad happens your ego looks for someone to blame" /laughter and crowd laughs even harder Me: /scratching my head in confusion cause i don't understand why he is laughing.
There is also one member of the crowd who has a very annoying laugh. I would love if someone did a version where his and the crowds laughter is edited out
I love Eckhart's teachings and thoughts. This book was excellent for that, a little deep for me at times, but worth it. Yes, there was VERY annoying background breathing and laughter as others have pointed out. I have listened to this a number of times and do get more out of it each time (as I do most audibles). The questions at the end were useless for me, but that is for me, maybe you will get something out of them. Do purchase it.
I love Eckhart, if u like him at all, do yourself a favor and continue to experience his knowledge and insight.
Hearing Tolle talk is a meditation in itself. This audio book is to be experienced, not merely for the sake of listening to words and gathering information. I listen to it over and over again and enjoy the experience every time.
Absolutely the best I've heard yet. There is so much to learn in this series. I've listened to several of his lectures and his series on Oprah and I thought this was the best one yet. Other reviewers have commented on an audience member laughing too much, however I didn't notice it as too much, too often or out of place. There were several points that were hilarious and I found myself laughing out loud along with Eckhart and the audience. Excellent work!
This lecture series has been life changing for me; with instruction for living a life not based on mind thought but with present awakened awareness which observes the mind. As for the mentioned laughing audience member; that is one funny laugh and it had me laughing too!
when i read the review for this recording prior to purchase, i recall comments regarding a gentleman wo laughed throughout the seminar. it is true, the gentleman laughs loud and often, but i find the laughter so full of joy, and it connects with the indwelling joy of Eckhart Tolle to such a degree that it adds a unique light to this recording. each recording/teaching is meaningful, this one, i feel is unique BECAUSE of the laughter and joyous spirit the gentleman unwittingly brought to the seminar, and was unwittingly recorded for ALL of us to share in.
this is a must-have for your audible Tolle library shelf, you will not be disappointed~and if the man's laughter bothers you, you must honestly ask, what negativity is the laughter igniting within you, and for what reason?
