The author did a good job in trying to explain the inner workings of the psyche. He made it clear that no matter how different people are, we all go through similar distorted thought patterns and mental inconstancies. He brings a number of interesting ideas around dealing with our psyche and learning to transcend our conscious self to a higher level of awareness . I recommend this book
This book is a life changer. A must read for all interested in a peaceful existence. Very enlightening!!!
A profound treasure
None that I have read
No characters. The narration was superb!
I have listened to this book completely 3 times and have gotten more out of it each time. Will listen to it several more times.
The scarcity of life, that it's temporary is what makes it special. the breath you take could be your last one, so make all your breaths worth while.
An easier to read Ekhart Tolle. Loved his Power of Now, but was pretty abstract. This book made more concrete.
I bought this book because of the great reviews but unfortunately I didn't get much out of it. If you have not read any other books of this genre then it may appeal to you but much of the material has been addressed already in a more substantial, mature way by other authors (Tolle, Chopra). I found this book to be very, very repetitive and at times felt like yeling out "I get the point'. I also found it to be quite immature in it's examples and logic for example: "Do you think God likes to be around people who are happy or people that are miserable" Imagine you are God and you pop down to earth and ask the first person you see, do you like it here?
So overall I would not recommend this book.
In a crowded genre, Singer offers a fresh approach, definitely worth a listen.
I teach meditation to men and women in recovery. Recovery from addictions is an ongoing battle for health and the perspective offered in the book is hugely helpful in the deep work my clients must do. The separation of heart and head is understood on multiple and complex levels, identification of the process of addiction and calling the soul back in is the primary message of the book and recovery. The book is a wonderful adjunct to the 12 step program.
This book is thoughtful and uniquely insightful, highly recommend.
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 enjoyed the audiobook. The narration was good and did not distract from the content. I have definitely gained insight; as well as learned to new tactics for living a more complete life. It is the type of audio book that is worthy of being listened to and reviewed at least three or four times.
No I have not
Path to freedom
Worth the buy!
yes and I intend to - it's not complex and I found it a valuable listen first time
uncomplicate your life
easy listen and suited to the audio format. good for those who have been looking for a more practical approach to harmony with their soul and taking control of the ever thinking brain
I find that I listen to this book over and over....then sit and contemplate it many times... IT's well read, almost like the author is speaking to you personally...NOT like a typical reading of a book.
not yet, but will find his work and buy again... his voice and manner is very pleasing to me
If you are looking for an easy way to help understand the 'mind' vs the 'Mind', and all about the I AM 'Super Conscious' then please get this book.
