I have not read the print version
Eckhart, of course
His sincerity and knowledge were imparted with the perfect combination of sincerity and humor to make his lecture both informative and interesting.
Listening to this audiobook, I was struck but the author's profound understanding of the truth.
Many commented about the "inappropriate laughter". If you think the laughter was inappropriate you did not understand the teaching at all.
an amazing spiritual being able to communicate in a way that you will feel very deeply
didn't expect to laugh as much; but I'm glad I did, I find myself controlling/preventing my anger outbursts now; I stop think things thru and realize anger is not the solution but problem solving is. I no longer think I am inferior nor superior to anyone else. I feel a stronger more important sense of self. Feeling alive without thinking is the key!
Excellent. I almost did not chose this one because of negative review about laughing person. Glad I did. Use I phone and buds to listen. I did not think it was (laughing) an issue at all. Great retreat audio. So many to choose from, this one was enjoyable and helpful to me.
I absolutely get a lot out of Eckhardt, for me I was ready for all of this. Including letting go of judgement on the spot for about 4/5 of the entire book! A very "laughy" fellow from the audience was very hard to ignore. I found myself trying to figure out, how what was being said was so hilarious; under what circumstance would this be outroarously funny? Hmm, maybe if I needed attention? Maybe if I was high? Maybe if I had a personal grievance with Mr. Tolle? I couldn't find that person's delirium, in relationship to the material. So for me, I have no closure. AHHAHHAHAHAAAAAAAA! HAHA! HAAA. I still had great, new understandings. Letting go of past, shutting done, pro-actively, the head chatter from it; being responsible to the things I ALLOW in my head and becoming dedicated to actualizing my own value!
Eckhart did another great job at providing an opportunity to be present with stories, and question and answer time. His audiobooks have a theme of drawing out the impatient part of you that wants a quick fix or quick trip rather to stillness. I found myself rewinding a few times when I did not catch a joke or meditation reference.
I appreciate mostly the way he caters his words to the audience by reminding you how the mind will try to grab your attention through different examples. What I took from the book is remembering not to get caught up in the idea of form while also respecting the impact it has on my life. He also shared information on types of prayers that stuck out to me as well.
I would recommend this book to a person who is already read or listened to one of his previous books and could use more opportunities for getting the idea of being still to stick.
