    There's a rebel within you. It's the part of you that already knows how to break free of fear and unhappiness. This rebel is the voice of your own awakened mind. It's your rebel buddha - the sharp, clear intelligence that resists the status quo. It wakes you up from the sleepy acceptance of your day-to-day reality and shows you the power of your enlightened nature. It's the vibrant, insightful energy that compels you to seek the truth.

    Overall

    Loved it! Very inspirational if you are a rebel (in the kindest sense). Offers permission, and ways, to open your mouth as well as your heart and still be at peace with who you are.

    From Rhonda Byrne, creator of the international bestselling movie and book, The Secret, comes HERO, her latest world-changing project and the most important to date. What is your true calling and why aren't you already living it? Imagine if there was a map that showed you step by step how to get from where you are now to your true calling and the life you were born to live - the most brilliant, rich, fulfilling, and dazzling life you could ever dream of. You are holding in your hands such a map. HERO is the map for your life.

    I have listened to all of Rhonda's books. While not earth shattering, they are all inspirational and good to hear. If you don't have dreams, you don't need this book, but if you have a dream, this book is for you.

  • Living a Course in Miracles: An Essential Guide to the Classic Text

    In 1976, a mysterious "Inner Voice" spoke to Helen Schucman, dictating what would come to be known as A Course in Miracles - a spiritual classic that would go on to sell over two million copies and influence countless people worldwide. Those who study this 1,333-page course can struggle for years to progress through its resonant but often difficult-to-comprehend truths.

    Most books further describing 'A Course in Miracles' are worth listening to and this one is no exception. It is very obvious that Jon is knowledgeable on his material and a great student of the Course. He clarified many questions I had and raised some more which makes me want to study more. Good teaching!

    The content is awesome and VERY thought provoking, and I stress these two things heavily, however the narration made for a struggle to complete the book. I would love to hear it again but don't think I could do it unless someone else did the reading. (Be sure to listen to the sample to see if you could take several hours of it.)

    You can change your personal capacity for happiness. Research psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky's pioneering concept of the 40% solution shows you how.

    Coming from a scientific background and thinking in an analytical way I greatly appreciate all the statistical support for Sonja's work. I enjoy how she throws in personal accounts that further describe her findings by sharing her own doubts and stumblings. Sometimes I thought the 'hows' suggested were a little trite but I did participate in most of her questionnaires and tests with worthy positive results. Who knew?! I love the idea of a happiness set point and proof that 40% of one's happiness can be improved! Very encouraging! Many times I found myself saying "Hmmmm...there's an idea!"

    Her narration was wonderful. She has a great voice for this subject matter!

    Something like 108 billion people have lived on our planet during its history, and despite all of the experiences in all of the lifetimes of all of those people, we have still not found a way to exist together in peace and harmony, much less create individual lives with a powerfully glorious, intrinsic meaning and a wonderfully joyful purpose. Life has such a meaning and purpose, but across thousands of years only a very small number of human beings seem to have really understood it. Until now. Now, everyone seems to be "getting it" all at once - and agreeing with one another, at last, that it truly is...The Only Thing That Matters.

    I am a HUGE fan of Neale's having read most all his previous works. The contents of this book still have me a fan but several times I did have to turn it off and 'digest' what he was saying. He gets his point across about 'the only thing that matters' but sometimes in an annoying way. Maybe its just the pace I learn at (slowly!). I found myself getting frustrated with his comparisons that ran on FOREVER and how the topics swirled back on each other. With all that said this book is definitely worth the credit and time taken to listen to it. You will learn a lot and have MANY 'ah ha' moments. As usual Neale is very comforting in one segment and then knocks you off your base in the next only to steady you again in the following one. I will listen again soon (after my head quits spinning from this round!)

    In The Law of Divine Compensation, Marianne Williamson reveals the spiritual principles that help us overcome financial stress and unleash the divine power of abundance. Williamson's words ring with power and truth as she assures us that, with faith in God's promise of prosperity for all, we need never fear the future.

    I am a fan of Marianne Williamson, her teachings, and her thinking so it would be hard for me to not like anything she has written. This book offered the encouragement and redirection my life needed right now. Sometimes we need to be re-focused and Marianne gently did that. What perfect timing here at the new year and start of a new Baktun!

    As always she brings her awesome prayers to each chapter and weaves many teachings from 'A Course in Miracles' into her story. I appreciate that she pulls stories out of her own life to illustrate her point.

    If you are looking for a book to offer a deep breath of fresh air then purchase this one.

    Russell Simmons knows firsthand that wealth is rooted in much more than the stock market. True wealth has more to do with what's in your heart than what's in your wallet. Using this knowledge, Simmons became one of America's shrewdest entrepreneurs, achieving a level of success that most investors only dream about. No matter how much material gain he accumulated, he never stopped lending a hand to those less fortunate.

    I loved this book. Very motivational; a little out of my language realm, but I caught on. Extremely real, down to earth, and worth the credit. It's a fun read (listen) and I was more prepared to go out and develop my career. I'll put this one on the 'highly recommend' list.

    The theme of this four-day retreat: "It's Always Now" The Now is inseparable from who you are at the deepest level. It is the prerequisite of Being. As you listen to the words on this tape, you participate in the retreat. To "retreat" means to step back - not only from the outer world, but also from the world in your head, the thinking mind. Allow the sound of the words to take you beyond words and beyond sound to the stillness within.

    Stephanie says: "The best Audible credit I've spent yet"
    "worth it, but be patient"
    Overall

    I love Eckhart's teachings and thoughts. This book was excellent for that, a little deep for me at times, but worth it. Yes, there was VERY annoying background breathing and laughter as others have pointed out. I have listened to this a number of times and do get more out of it each time (as I do most audibles). The questions at the end were useless for me, but that is for me, maybe you will get something out of them. Do purchase it.

    Many self-help books offer a lot of new age platitudes and sappy mantras: Just love yourself. See the glass as half full. Really? That’s not how it works, and you know it. A lifetime’s worth of struggle is not overturned in a small moment of positive thinking. But if you have the right attitude - attitude and skills - you can and will accomplish anything and everything you want. This book gives you both, attitude and action. By its end you will have all the tools you need to change your life. No hype. No false promises....

    Neal says: "Interesting book, if your willing to work"
    "WOW!!"
    Overall

    VERY in-your-face listening and sooooo well worth it! Love Jillian's brutal honesty. Reality never had it so good! She makes gaining control of your life in all areas paramount. Basic message...step up or step aside!

    A very exciting listen full of intrigue and energy. Wonderful life lessons and words to live by told in a 'made for TV' kind of way. Very glad there is a sequel! I wanted it to go on forever!
