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.
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.
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 found great the approach probably because of the content of the book was aligned by the moment in my life. I definitely like many of the teachings explained on the book. Something important to say, it’s that this book is not for everybody, and it will depend of the moment of life and beliefs.
The first chapters of the books were the most interesting. Probably this is a book to read/hear many times and study also. As I went farther in the book the topics were in my perception more deep. I think this book is a path for self-consciousness and self-enlightenment. I will need to practice and have a self-focus in order to proficiency the level of maturity taught along the book. As long you go through the book, the bigger is the challenge to accomplish in my personal point of view.
I can’t recall by the moment but I found the performance very good. This book in my opinion is not an easy context to transmit the essence of the book.
No... this is a book to listen carefully. I might not be the best to say this, but in my opinion the deepness of the topic shared in the book does not worth to listen it all in one sitting.
Once again, this book will not resolve your current life’s challenges and difficulties, or how to live in a higher stage of consciousness, at the end everyone is responsible for their choices and decisions. This might be the main principle for self-determination of the self-being.
Love to read and listen to books. I prefer detective stories, but also read some sci fi.
Yes, this book is very good at explaining why we do not trust people and why our walls continue to grow. How can we be happy?
It's all about me.
Very well read
I hope you get the same thing out of this book as I did. Just remember life is a journey and it is about making a decision every day to love others.
Spontaneous Awakening. Both books have a clear, simple and straight to the point way of pointing the way.
Let go and find yourself outside of your comfort zone. There is freedom in becoming untethered.
It encouraged me to move forward and change my thinking. Get into the flow of life instead of trying to contain it.
He did a nice job with the entire audiobook. I have listened to it twice and will listen to it again.
Anyone not paying much attention.
Someone who doesn't read it like it's a book of fiction.
The narrator made it seem boring.
I tried slowing the playback down, but it sounded too odd, so it wasn't an option.
Enlightening, useful, practical.
Two books I've read recently, the full catastrophe and the gift of imperfection.
The biggest negative was with the reader. He "dipped" at the end of the sentence often, as if trying to make you "relax" and fall into a trance. Hey, I get it . . . it's a book about relaxation and freeing yourself. But the dipping was very problematic (kept turning up the volume, then found it too loud for the rest).
More importantly . . . the first section of the book was profound albeit simple. After reading, I found extra energy, better focus, renewed calm, etc. The concept of quieting your internal dialogue was powerful.
The rest of the book was beneficial as well, though I feel like it dipped a bit toward the end. Overall, a great self-help book with some very practical strategies that can be put in play right away.
I would use a different narrator. I just didn't respond to this man's voice and it was distracting as I was listening.
In the beginning, and throughout most of the book, the author quoted many different sources but by the end there was a distinct focus on the Bible and God. And that was a problem for me as I am not a believer in God. That portion of the book, which seemed to be the last two chapters, was a loss for me. However, I did enjoy the rest of the book and am still thinking about the ideas it presented.
