Adyashanti has a clear, simple style that spoke to my core. On chapter 2 I just fell through.
The Untethered Soul the journey beyond yourself. Both books have a clear, simple way to point the way. The first crack opened listening to the untethered Soul when I heard the explanation that the consciousness that awakens is the same consciousness that awakens in a spiritual awakening.
It applies universally.
Humor and sincerity.
How to distance myself emotionally from life's problems.
I would like to be enlightened myself.
You will not spontaneously awake by listening to this book. There are some great inspirational books and audio-books out there that one can read to develop a path to spiritual awakening and this is not one of them. Adyashanti speaks a lot in ellipses, where it would seem you have to know what he is actually thinking, not saying, to understand what he is getting at. If I were to summarize this book in one sentence it would be: "You may or may not spontaneously awaken if one day you happen to truly understand that there is no you, your thoughts are not real, and you are not special."
I am grateful many people benefit from this. For me personally he teachings are so full of internal contradictions that they become irrelevant. It strikes me as a Buddhist version of the California-style of 'hang-loose' Christianity. I find much more value in reading, or listening to, the Dhammapada. I'm glad I listened, but won't be coming back for more.
Narrator rambles in a conversational style, interjecting laughs and sometimes mumbling as if he were stoned. Narrator repeats and rephrases everything he says for emphasis, as if we didn't hear him the first time. Probably because he really has nothing of substance to say. Very annoying.
