I don't listen to non-fiction very often, and I have never listened to a "motivational" or "self-help" book ever... so this was a new experience for me. It was just such a different experience that it's hard to do a comparison. I liked the book compared to other audiobooks I have listened to.
Toward the end of the book, it goes into the idea that you might as well live like it was the last week of your life all the time, and I found myself saying, "You're so right" to myself in my car on the way home from work. Obviously it was a good moment in the book.
It's non-fiction so there are not necessarily "scenes" per-se, but my favorite part was probably the beginning, when it was describing the "inner dialogue". I really connected to what the author was saying.
I actually needed a break throughout listening to this book, so it's good that my commute is only 40 minutes. There is a lot of abstract information in the book, so it's hard to process it all, at least at the pace that this narrator went at. Overall though, the pace was good for the tone of the book, so even though it was harder to really process all the information, the information was good, so I really actually liked the book. Even without necessarily agreeing with all the information in it, it still gets you thinking and makes you realize that being happy is easier than it seems. I have made some real strides with myself because of this book, so I can't say that the book is not worth listening to. It's definitely worth listening to.
It got a bit redundant, always telling you to, "just let it go," but that's the nature of how it says to approach happiness, so it makes sense that the "let it go" point was made throughout.
The author is supposed to be a self made multimillionaire. This book lacks any real world day to day connection.
His tag line is "let go" Let it pass through you. Thats great but we still need to react to the situation and make a decision based on the event.
Tell me how he personally used this philosophy in his daily life and why it helped him.
Oprah recommend it. I like him on him on the YouTube video. I really though there would be more magic. Instead I was left feeling totally unplugged.
Peter is an excellent reader. I did really enjoy his voice.
Over all an interesting thought provoking spiritual audio would prefer the author to read the book l think this would make more of an impact to get the message across l rated this four stars cheers
This book is just a wonderful book. It's a deeply thought provoking book and I found that it helped me find a new spiritual path. I can't say enough about it. I read it once and I'm already reading it again.
It was comfortable. Calming, and I don't know how I have have gotten through life without it.
When people test your ego, give it to them. when they make your ego mad, give it to them, you don't want it, let it go.
Happiness and freedom from fear and pain.
One of my favorites.
The Untethered Soul was a fascinating book. It was very hard to listen to as the recording volume and cadence of the reader was all over the place. How ever, it was worth the listen!
Power and Fear
The cadence and articulation. The volume changes in the recording.
Choosing to be happy, Samscara's, many many ideas.
I enjoyed the secular yet spiritual balance of this book. Had it's own spin on messages I've read from authors such as Tolle and Dyer. I listened to it twice and will return. Definitely a staple in my practice.
This book tells the truth very clearly and every time you listen you are reminded again that YOU are not the one who is listening or experiencing your life; YOU are the one observing it all. If we can step back into that truth and really untether from the temporal world and just flow from our Reality, which is only Spirit or Soul, complete peace and joy is what remains.
Spiritual Liberation by Michael Bernard Beckwith is the one I listened to recently.
Monitoring my thoughts and emotions is the key; then remind myself to let go of the thoughts and just ALLOW things to flow and they will pass.
Not to be listened to just once.
I love reading Eckhart Tolle, but Michael keeps it very simple. I am on my second listen and will listen many more times.
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle.
Too many to list.
I've repeated it several times and find that jumping around is helpful, as it gives another perspective to the material.
It compares to A New Earth by Tolle, only this book not only deals with the forest, it gets deep into the trees.
The reader has a tinge of "sports announcer" which I find out of keeping with the subject.
A must read.
