Tell us about yourself!
Covers much of the same material as Haidt's Happiness hypothesis. Great insight into the practice of mindfulness. Very inspiring listen.
Fabulous, deep and freeing
Possibly the Power of the Now as it is in line with being conscious and present
Very good narrator
How to be more aware of my mind and the silent witness that is behind all that is.
This is a very very good book for those who want to explore conscious awakening, zen meditation and living on the principle of the Tao Te Ching. Michael Singer has by far the best way of putting all the depth of this knowledge in a delightfully simplistic manner. I highly recommend it.
This is one of the best books on mindfulness I have experienced. I will listen to this book again, with the exception of the last chapter where it began to feel like the author is biased towards the idea of a christian god. However, the rest of the book does not share the feel of the last chapter and I would greatly recommend it to anyone looking to become more mindful in their lives.
"You have mistreated your mind by giving it a responsibility that it cannot handle. You want everything to go your way, you want to be safe, so you tell your mind to make it so. It tries, day and night, never stopping to create a world you feel safe in. The problem is, it's not changing reality, it's building a false reality in your mind. Your mind is so active because you gave it an impossible task to do. Release your mind of the responsibility of making sure everyone and everything will be the way you need them to be so that you can feel better inside. Just experience life instead of thinking about it. Everything will be okay when you are okay with everything."
Yes. I did listen twice to refresh my mind with his methods
Follows in line with many others but explains it to my knowing
Have already to many
The power of now and the four agreements to a degree. This book is unique and easy to comprehend
Yes. Never will be the same.
Life Transforming!!! An easy way to start to wake up!!!
You are the LISTENER! The quiet observer.
WOW, a great and power lesson/s to apply to life.
I have been at this for almost 40 years...This writing is clear, inspiring, and magnetic.
Most give hints around the edges that may or may not produce measurable change.
One of the best books I've ever "read", if not the best one.
It made me go look for other titles with his narrations. He's that good.
If you're open minded enough, this book can change your life. If you are depressed, overwhelmed or feel stuck in life you've got to listen to it.
This is an excellent follow-up to 2 books I had read previously, The Power of Now and A New Earth.by Eckhart Tolle, in that this book guided me gently through "how to do it". At first it seems too simple, but bear with Michael Singer throughout the entire book. By the end I had a gentle path to help me stay in the Now (or continually return there anyway). As I re-read this book, even small parts of it are guiding me onto a higher spiritual plane.
I have not read the print so I could not compare. But I LOVED this book. I listened to it twice in a row! And will listen to it again soon.
Ask yourself why you are doing something, to find out your true motives for doing it. And that I am not my bad habbits. I am much greater than one single action. This book really helped me to open myself to all that I am and all that is around me.
What part of my is being disturbed by the perceived problems? This is how I can 'fix' it. Allow for space between an event and my action. Take the seat of whitness and change my frame of refrenece. The world is not out to get me. Most people are moving through life unaware and reactive. Act with intentional awareness.
This book is one that I will listen to over and over. It is probably the best of many self help books that I have read. It will allow you to be more free.
