Read the book - don't bother listening to this audio. The orator somehow took a spiritual book and made it sound like something from Alvin and he Chipmunks. Awful.
There was some good information here, but a bit difficult to grasp at times and then some parts seemed like they were unnecessarily repeated. I also didn't really care for the narration
His tone and his whole involvement in the material. I thought the author was reading it. His voice was soothing and entertaining at the same time. I'd like to listen to other books he narrated.
I love love this book. Amazing. I've read a lot of self-help books, but this one was delivered in such an easy way to understand. It MAKES SENSE. I've already ask myself "Who am I? Who is the one who is bothered?" It helps you to take a step back and be more aware of your incessant thoughts.
This is the first book I've every found that really gets into the "internal conversation" or "monkey brain" in a way that is really easy to understand. Some of the examples actually had me laughing out loud - they were so realistic. This is a really helpful book and the practice it espouses is so worthwile. I've bought copies for good friends and I heartily recommend this book for anyone on "the path" (which is everyone).
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.
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...
Here and now
I liked the book, but since I've read so many of these I felt like it fell in the self help category rather than spiritual awaking. It was lacking the true essence of awakening. Books like "the power of now" or "the new earth" teach it different. They teach it through mindlessness. I would give this book to someone who didn't believe they had voices in their head. This book is really good at teaching you to realize that, but I felt at the end it was lacking or maybe that's the best thing about it, makes people want to know more.
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.
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.
