No,but I would attend if I can.
Yes and No; it was too profound that I personally have to listen to it serval times to decipher - partly I believe my English proficiency is a constriction that holding me back, but I think I'll get there pretty soon. - I can taste it!
Well, what can I say? there must be a
The author continually undermines his arguments by using Christian concepts to support them (Angel of Death,the Gospel of John, Jesus, Christian concept of God). The rave review from Deepak Chopra should have served as a warning. No doubt, this 'best selling author' will be featured at Learning Annex's all around the country, for years to come. To cleanse the palate, pick up 'god is not Great' by Christopher Hitchens.
To paraphrase Singer; each day might be my last - and I could not possibly risk wasting any part of what is left of my life - reading this dribble.
All but the part about finding your inner voice.
Painful to get through...
Amazing content. The book really ties together a lot of spiritual concepts and just says it how it is. I've read a lot in this genre and am hearing things elucidated like never before. I LOVE the description of the energy waves and the Dao as well as the description of the stuck energy in the heart. I've experienced this phenomenon in Vipassana meditation but it was never explained as plainly/nicely as this.
Peter's voice is fine, but he starts each sentence with a burst and then trails off at the end of each sentence. I'm listening on quality Beats speakers so it's not my system. The result is that the volume has to be turned up louder to hear the end of the sentence, and it makes the beginning part way too loud. To the mixing/mastering engineer: please USE A COMPRESSOR! It's maddening.
Well I thought it was a good book, with a lot of insightful information.. but the person who read this book read it at an insanely fast pace! and has a very annoying voice. no presence at all. Sounded like a high pitched robot on ultra fast reading mode to be honest. For a book as deep as this, the author should have read it himself, seriously. He cannot be happy with how this turned out.
Content was amazing but I kept getting distracted by the poor audio editing... The volume went up and down, almost like the narrator was whispering at the end of each sentence.
This book was recommended to me via a podcast. It really hit a chord with me and has helped me immeasurably when the monkey in my head starts screaming about something. I go back to it again and again when I'm having a hard time letting something go. It's just something that happened; move on.
I hope you get as much out of it as I did.
I bought this book because of the great reviews but unfortunately I didn't get much out of it. If you have not read any other books of this genre then it may appeal to you but much of the material has been addressed already in a more substantial, mature way by other authors (Tolle, Chopra). I found this book to be very, very repetitive and at times felt like yeling out "I get the point'. I also found it to be quite immature in it's examples and logic for example: "Do you think God likes to be around people who are happy or people that are miserable" Imagine you are God and you pop down to earth and ask the first person you see, do you like it here?
So overall I would not recommend this book.
Absolutely!!! This book answers so many questions about personal freedom, LIBERATION IN A CLEAR, SIMPLE, why-did-I-not-realize-it-before way!!! Thanks, Michael for figuring it out for me.
I am only halfway listening to this book but I love the analogy about the thorn, how we so protect our endless pain and drama and cling so tightly to them instead of just letting go and stopping the madness within. Brilliant.
I loved it when he said if you want to quit smoking, stop putting cigarettes in your mouth. Personally, I want to lose 5 lbs. so I'll quit shoving food in my mouth. Funny but very, very true!!!
Yes, were it not for so many distractions and things to do. But I plan to listen to it over and over again.
This book should be spread like the Gospel. As the other reviewer wrote, in my case, Mr. Singer is just as great as my other favorites: Ram Dass, Don Miguel Ruiz, Eckhart Tolle and Deepak.
I don't know where to begin, I have read several spiritual books but this one pulls everything together. I definitely am going to listen to this book again. Peter Berkrot has an excellent voice, he spoke with authority and soft when he speaking about God, the unknown, the underlying energy that drives everything. Chapter 17, Contemplating Death frighten me due to transitions of love ones, it is funny, I know that I and people I care for are going to die but it is always a shock when it happens. Maybe it was Deepak Chopra who said, make death your friend.
Butterflies are Free to Fly by Stephen Davis reminds me of The Untethered Soul.
When Peter was reading the part of the voice in your head, it made me laugh because it felt so real. I could defintely relate.
I want to incorporate the techniques of this book into my life.
This book has some gems in it. My recommendation is to listen to the first 1/3 to 1/2. At some point it becomes extremely repetitive. I found the tone of it condescending, and felt like I was being lectured, and not in a good way. I think that the core of the "how to" part, which is to simply relax and not resist reality, is overly simplistic. People have consistent meditation practices because it is difficult to change your way of being on the fly.
