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 am glad I listened to the entire thing, as I thought there was q lot of thought provoking ideas and concepts to incorporate into my life.
Having said that, being told what to think or do is always a harder pill to swallow than if the presentation was of another person.
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.
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.
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.
Simple to listen to, inspiring to hear, this book opens the door to spiritual lessons that could take life times to learn. It distillates it down to easy to follow examples that begs the listener to ask the truth behind who we are, what we are doing here and how can I open the door to true divinity?
Singers articulation of self vs mind and how to quiet and let the storms and seasons of emotion pass through you is phenomenal.
Several passages on God and the spirit did not feel fitting, but as of course just because the totality of the work doesn't resonate, doesn't invalidate the work in its totality.
