    For those who are seeking a path of simplicity, not bound by the trappings of spiritual practice, Adyashanti brings a fresh and humble approach to Zen wisdom. "Don't think that awakening is the end," teaches Adyashanti. "Awakening is the end of seeking, the end of the seeker, but it is the beginning of a life lived from your true nature."

    This guy is amazing. I have both of his speeches that are available here, and recommend them both VERY VERY VERY highly. His views on being awake are actually liberating (no joke). He teaches that being AWAKE is really not hard, and that in his opinion there are a lot more AWAKE people than you realize ... MAYBE EVEN YOU.
    You can hear his authentic-ness in his voice. Very easy too listen too. He leads you through a couple guided meditations. This is basically the teaching he gave at a retreat. I would love to meet this guy!!!

  • Power vs. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior

    The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., reveals to the general public secret information heretofore only shared by the author with certain Nobelists and world leaders. Analyzing the basic nature of human thought and consciousness itself, the author makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science and resolving the most crucial of all human dilemmas.

    Greg says: "Good book – poor narrator"
    "PAINFUL to listen too"
    Overall

    OMG !!!! The narrator (author) is THE WORST I have ever heard. I am only about 1 hour into listening to this book. I find the topic interesting but Dr Hawkins reads the book like he has never read it before. It sounds like he is often ignoring the punctuation. Pausing between words at strange times and running sentences together at others.
    HE TALKS LIKE HE HAS A MOUTH FULL OF MASKED PEAS (or saliva).
    He has an especially difficult time saying the word "Et cetera" which he pronounces as "eshhesha".
    Why? Why? Why? Why didn't someone tell this man that he sounds so terrible?
    All that being said. I will probably buy the book to read. And, I hope I can finish listening to this audible book. But, I find my self getting very frustrated starting and stopping, rewinding to try and understand what he said/meant.
    To bad there is not a way to "return unused portions" for a full or partial refund. I would definitely return this one.
    The WORST narrator i have ever heard.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    Aaron Brown says: "Unique Magic system, good plot twists."
    "Slow Slow start"
    Overall

    I agree with some of the other reviews. The amount of character development in the beginning of the book was very hard to listen to. The author describes each look, thought, action, etc of all the characters. More like a screen play than a novel. I often thought the writing sounded like it was written by a teenager.
    But, after the first part (the book is broken in to 3 separate downloads) I enjoined it more and more. The ending sets the stage for another book. And, i am going to get it as well.
