Out of the many personal growth books I've read (or listened to), this one has simplified and explained the most complex ideas in the easiest way using metaphors and examples I could clearly grasp.
I can't stop recommending it to all my friends and family now!
This is a straight forward account of the steps to living the highest level of ecstasy. It is a modern, I want to say neutral approach. I am familiar with the writings of many cultures and religions on this topic, and Mr. Singer brings the teachings to a new beautify simple level. At the end of the book, some versions of what he speaks are discussed , but what is most significant about this book is the way it lays down the path in familiar daily experiences, and ties them logically and beautifully to the goal.
This is the best audio book I have listened to! It covers everything about yourself and your journey through life, awesome!
I was looking for an inspirational book and I got 'chill out.' It is calming and pleasant to listen to. It did not inspire me to get in the boat, pictured on the cover.
I wish I'd read this particular book. Instead I opted for the audio version. The narrator's voice was so annoying that it was a major distraction. The delivery was much too fast. It seemed he was trying to race through it just to get it over with. The author would've been better served had he read it for Audible. (Michael Singer, the author, reads his recent book THE SURRENDER EXPERIMENT. His voice was very pleasant.)
The last chapter of THE UNTETHERED SOUL was what really spoke to me.
All in all, I enjoyed THE SURRENDER EXPERIMENT much more.
As an avid reader of Eckhart Tolle I found this equally powerful in its own way.
It changed my perspective on day to day life from the very first chapter, enabling me to stop self judgment and incessant analysis of people and situations around me.
Also well narrated!
I have been raving about this book to many people.
I'll be listening to this again and again.
It should be read a little slower as person listening needs to pause for big ideas and digest the content.
This book is a book on its own category.
It is simple to be truly happy as long as we do not give conditions to our happiness. We can experience unconditional happiness.
When you walk thru a beautiful botanical garden, you feel open and light, you feel love, you see beauty. You don't judge the shape and the placement of every leaf. The leaves are of all sizes and shapes and they face every which way and that is what makes them beautiful.
What is you felt that way about people?
Some great insights. I feel I need to read this again in a year and will get more out of it. Can be a bit hard to follow at times and some of the concepts went over my head.
