Noticed that I should Never Gloat to be unstoppable; unlimited.
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
An inspiring view of self and our ability to obtain happiness. Gives a biblical basis for forgiveness and happiness in relation to today's world views.
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.
I run my own business so actual book reading is quite a luxury and one I rarely have time for... I drive quite a bit so thats where I do my best listening to audio books... as I find driving a little boring my audio books make it a pleasure...
hehe I think regarding this book... um me :)
there were no characters but Peter Berkrot is a great narrator!
oh gosh too many to list... and Im still listening so Im sure there will be more...
this was one of those perfect timing books, not sure why I even bought it... purely on the snippet and liking the narrators voice (that is really important to me)... it is an artform and not everyone can do it.
This is one of my all time favorite audios so far... and I listen to a lot of them. A great start to 2012!
I was mistaken when I thought this book would help me practice clearing my mind. I ended up being more frustrated than before simply because this book is filled with conflicticting and illogical arguments. I guess I'll just let it go...
I enjoy audio books and blogging.
The conclusion was disappointing. I would have it rely less on theology.
The ending was a let down. The central message was about knowing your self. The author offered great guidance about training thoughts, up until the last chapter. Suddenly, armed with my toolbox, anticipating a wild conclusion, I was left slightly disappointed, about the message...just have faith.
fatherly, confident, assertive
Yes. I was left inspired to practice taking experiences in and letting them go.
There ware many helpful lessons about understanding internal energy. Michael Singer explains that if you hold on to experiences, wether good or bad, they create blockage.I am currently going to practice taking things in and then letting them go so that I could always be ready for the next experience.
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.
Thoreau's 'Walden' and Ayn Rand's 25th anniversary introduction to 'The Fountainhead' summarize my library well.
This self-help audiobook wins on so many fronts. I have completed this title three times in my first year of owning it. If you have no regrets about your past and no fears about your future, carry on. For the rest of us, there is 'Untethered.'
- The author puts the reader in the driver's seat. Untethered dances with and unites various schools of eastern and western theology. But in contrast to stereotyped theologies where your behavior is guided and judged by a higher being, Singer puts full control of happiness in the reader's hands. It's your choice. And that's what all the theologies (in Singer's interpretation, which I enjoy) are saying. The consequence of not taking control is not a scorned afterlife or life of guilt, it's simply Your Loss, Right Now, which Singer subtly convinces you is worse than any of the aforementioned. It's this 'selfish' road that Singer lets the reader walk that subtly and ultimately frees the reader from their own mental blocks.
- The narration is SUPERB. Berkrot reads this book as if he were throwing a bucket of ice water at your face, telling you to wake the hell up and free yourself from your own mental and emotional restraints. He interprets Singer's words beautifully, with force and high fidelity; I can't imagine this book being narrated in any other fashion.
- Singer pulls no punches. He goes after your heartbreaks, anxieties and insecurities with simple words, repeated messages and dismantling intentions. And then teaches not only HOW to do dismantle these fears for yourself, but WHY it is utterly essential for you to do so. The tales of 'The House' and 'The Dog' are wonderful; I find myself thinking about these allegories often.
Bravo Michael Singer and Peter Berkrot.
