Fluctuation in voice to add dramatic effect caused volume to fade too low to hear at times. Too much attempt at dramatization.
Any book on the topic of consciousness will have a couple of useful nuggets and this book was no different. Just hard to stay interested between the literary style and narration.
The Power of Now may be advanced and take great concentration, but I found it much clearer and that it did a phenomenal job of explaining the topic. I recommend that book instead.
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.
I'm a counsellor & Psychotherapist and I love to listen to good self-help books
What a fantastic inspiring book! Start at any chapter and you will learn something new!
This book seems to be chapter after chapter of telling "you" what you do- how we cling to thoughts, how we identify ourselves, etc. It seems like "you" do this and "you" do that. I'm still waiting for any insight on what "you" can do about it. This book may be good for someone who has never had any training or read anything about spirituality or psychology. It is not for anyone who has read Tolle, or any of the other spiritual writers. It does not go beyond "The Power of Now", for example. And the narrator is almost patronizing from my point of view, in his attempt to sound interesting. It sounds more dramatic than necessary. To be honest, I am at chapter 14 and want to put it down, but I will listen to the end, and change this evaluation if I find that the ending somehow surprises me.
The book could have been less narrative about what "you" do and don't do. It lacks skill giving. "You" might read it and relate to a lot of what it says, but it is lacking as compared to deeper thinkers and more insightful writers like Thich Nhat Hanh, Tolle, Krishnamurti...
Too dramatic. Too false. Could have been more natural.
I just wish I had known ahead of time that it was not going to contribute to what I have already learned. It was not the right book for me. Perhaps it is good, again, for someone who has never worked on their spirituality or psychology.
Will most likely return this book.
Absolutely recommended. This is one of the clearest and best written books for the lay person. Excellent in all ways.
I loved Singer's description of the interior voice that haunts us all. I also loved his explanation of how to deal with the annoying voice.
This is a book that can be read by young and old. Something for everybody including all of you who think that you know everything already...
I will have to reserve my opinion, I've listened to the audio three times and I am now reading the book.
Not yet, I can't decide....
This is also reserved.
Oh my gosh! embracing Death...
this book is insightful and practical
i enjoyed the nuggets of truths sprinkled throughout the book as well as the narrartor
i like the part of the book where hard truths have been presented and now it's time to hear their practical application
before finishing the book, "breathe into and just let it go" became a little mantra for me
great book for the seeker of inner peace
The author did a good job in trying to explain the inner workings of the psyche. He made it clear that no matter how different people are, we all go through similar distorted thought patterns and mental inconstancies. He brings a number of interesting ideas around dealing with our psyche and learning to transcend our conscious self to a higher level of awareness . I recommend this book
This book is a life changer. A must read for all interested in a peaceful existence. Very enlightening!!!
A profound treasure
None that I have read
No characters. The narration was superb!
I have listened to this book completely 3 times and have gotten more out of it each time. Will listen to it several more times.
