    Story
    "Hmmm..."

    I really liked Michaels ability to articulate inner voices, and how to see ourself as detached from our inner dialogues. However, he's prone to misquoting Jesus. And since I don't know the teachings of other famous spiritual gurus I found myself wondering how much he misquotes them as well. He focuses so heavy on the idea God is nonjudgmental bliss, to whom no apologies are owed no matter how bad we've been I sense he is missing a true accounting for the nasty things people experience in life if God is truly so extremely like that. Jesus talks about God having a remarkably accurate sense of justice and mercy. Not just mercy. Both. I'm sure eternity will show who's most right though. Apart from that his idea of seeking connection with God, unconditional love, and stability of spirit seems noble.

    "I have a new understanding of awareness"
    Would you listen to The Untethered Soul again? Why?

    I may listen to this again, although it was presented so clearly I don't think I need to. The information was fun to listen to right from the start which was partly the content and partly the reader who helped bring the story to life. So thankful I checked out this book


    Have you listened to any of Peter Berkrot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but he's great, I'm curious about the other books he's done

    Story
    "It's not that it's too obscure..."

    The book started out interesting and I think quite helpful and applicable. At that point, the idea of stepping back and being aware of watching a stream of thoughts, emotions -- the ego -- as separate from your actual identity was compelling and applicable.
    However the book presents a humanist, mystic style worldview as fact. I also found it a little bit condescending; if you were more enlightened you would be happy. At the end, the spiritual journey is to transcend the limitations of our thoughts and experiences and also to become aware of God in the self.
    Desmond Tutu is a fan of quoting an African proverb: 'I am because you are' which subscribes to more communal identity. Considering this, I think that it's not just about a spiritual journey inward.
    Anyway, thought provoking but very doctrinal. And I found the way of writing a little bit too condescending. Maybe this means that I am one of the stubbornly unenlightened but I would suggest downloading the headspace or some other mindfulness app and approaching a 'being present in the moment' journey from a different angle.

    "I have gotten to the middle"

    so fur I didn't like the book, no, no, no, no and no narration is terrible. I think authors should read their own books, they do way better.

    well I'm upto chapter 7 and I have only heard info. that could be true but most likely false trust me on this one. explanation on how the spirit/mind works: everyone has their own theory, I've heard a lot.

    anyway I feel that its beginning to get good here at chapter 7 for me. I might update this review later.
