If the narrator had a smooth tone of voice, it would've probably felt more encouraging rather than accusatory. I don't understand why the author picked an old man who narrates like we are in the 70s. I assume he picked the narrator that sounded close to himself, but the listeners want to feel relaxed when listening to these books, not lectured.
I don't often write book reviews, but I felt compelled to write about this one. This is a life changing book if you truly listen to and follow what is said In it.
Michael Singer hits it out of the park with this book. He covers all the important points about spiritual growth in a simple way, which reflects his own practice and experience. I consider myself an experienced spiritual seeker. Most people don't need anything other than this book to happiness and peace.
I did not get this audiobook the first time around, the second listen was powerful for me. I wish Michael had read it, I had trouble connecting with the reader. If you listen to The surrender experiment, you will know Michael speaks from experience and what he teaches really works. God bless.
I didn't have any expectations, however I knew I needed a refresher course in spirituality and this book delivers.
So happy after listening to this. I could actually feel a shift in my energy field.
Looking forward to the days ahead.
I found myself engaged throughout the book. I had many opportunities to try out what he was suggesting. Though I don't agree with some of his logic or analogies (i.e. quitting cigarettes actually is more complicated than just not putting cigarettes in your hand), I loved his overall messages, goals, and the means to achieve them. My chattering mind is not "me," and it doesn't have to run my life. Energy can get "stuck" inside me. My heart "closes" way more often than I recognized. By avoiding pain we actually make it worse for ourselves. Great book.
My only other gripe is that the narrator would always drop off the end of sentences (volume, pronunciation) so that I often couldn't understand or hear the whole sentence.
Brace yourself you will never few the world the same again after this masterpiece. MUST READ for anyone seeking true enlightenment. Will leave you at peace for more.
For the last year I have followed Tolle and Chopra ' s teachings. Thank you Michael for your bluntness, your to the point writings and your euthanisms. I finally understand what it means to be centered and what I need to do to to get there.
