Spiritual teacher Michael A. Singer explores the question of human identity and shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and achieve happiness and self-realization.

"Read this book carefully and you will get more than a glimpse of eternity." (Deepak Chopra)
This book was shared with me by a yoga teacher that could tell I had somethings I had to let go of...Wow this book gave me so much more.
I really enjoyed listening to this. I believe ever one should take the time to listen to it because we all can relate. We all know what it is like to have our minds chatter. That annoying roommate that prevents you from doing things or keeps you up at night. This is a book that will allow you to gain a deeper understanding of choice and making a choice. Clearing your mind is the foundation. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have. Have a good day people :)
If there had been something useful.
Performance was great.
This book sounds good but there was not one thing that I can remember that impacted me or something that I will think of again. Waste of time.
I love Audible. I think Mario Martinez's Audiobook "Mind-Body Code" is my overall favorite so far.
Many life principles. well written and easy to understand. everyone would benefit from this mans wisdom. I will meet him one day in person.
After completing this audiobook on recommendation, i have only great things to say. I only wishedi had listened sooner, but most things happen when they are meant to.
Love it so much, got it in ebook, hardcopy, and audio, it's great!
Something that I'll be referring to throughout life, particularly when I know that I'm getting too sucked into the occurrences of day to day life.
If you're looking for help finding Inner Peace, this is a must read.
I have already started listening to it for the 2nd time.
So far, I have to say I have not found a book that has captured my attention as well as this one, not yet.
I found is tone very engaging.
This is one of the first books I read on this topic and so far, one of the best by far.
I felt like I knew much of this, but toward the end.. it gave me plenty of ah-ha moments and I will probably read again at some point. Great book to introduce anyone to mindful living and beginning to see the way to live in most peace and love and clarity
Great narrator. I felt scolded but in a good way lol. Very very informative and I know what I need to do. Stop wasting time and energy on what is draining and start living life like its my last week on earth. I'm going to listen to it again and again!
"Getting rid of that voice!"
I have listened twice and keep going back for reinforcement.
It really helped me to shut up that constant chatter, as an over thinker? I now understand that it wasn't over thinkimg but the voice/chatter in my mind overtaking.
Easy to listen to and follow - good sense of humour helped
Highly recommended for anyone who wants to be able to shut up that chatter and really think!
The concept of ones self.
No but I will
I feel I understand myself much more and I have a new out look in life. This book is truly life changing. I have shared this book with my friends and family and everyone loves it and cant wait to share it as well.
"Just The Tonic"
This is my second listen and l felt moved to listen to it. l found more this time than the first.
This book is awesome in content, spirit and truth. The narrator is clear, dramatic and engaging.
Just the Tonic for the journey.
"One of the best I've purchased."
I've listened to more than 50 audio books on spirituality, Buddhism, enlightenment, awakening etc., and this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review.
The author offers many great metaphors and stories to help the listener really understand the concepts discussed. I can already see how easy it 'could be' to change my behaviour, my perception and my experience of the life that flows through and around me - concepts I'm looking forward to playing with from this moment on.
In summary then, this audiobook offers many of the concepts and ideas that others do, but in a way that helps the listener to think about how he / she can apply them in a practical way to day-to-day life situations, and in turn step that much closer towards awakening.
love this so much it takes you all the way from a busy self obsessed mind to going beyond into disattachment and freedom. think I'll listen twice
This is the first book I have read that made a distinction between the voices in your head (internal dialogue) versus the impartial observer.
Through many examples the book explains how to separate your thought processes from yourself. The challenge is to see and separate while understanding your transient role in this universe.
I chuckled quite a bit in some parts and scratched my head in other parts.
Definitely a book to listen to over and over again. Like its guidance to seek happiness in everything I shall be returning to this book to try to gain more of the knowledge it seeks to impart.
Highly recommended, this book from start to finish had me wanting to hear more... will be listening again.
"Terrible ending to an interesting read"
As with all spiritual books, you can never get enough of them. Each one brings something slightly different to the table and as you grow, your understanding of the messages and metaphors used changes with you.
There are some good metaphors used, interesting stories but..... the book is ruined by referencing bible quotes which start half way through the read. These seem so out of place with the rest of the teachings. To me it shows a lack of understanding on this topic from the author.
We all read these books differently but in my opinion they should never cross into religion which puts spirituality in a box and gives it a label.
A shame, but I will not be going anywhere near this author again.
"Rinse and repeat"
The most repetitive book imaginable. Without being facetious the contents could be clearly explained in five minutes. The author repeats the exact same premise over and over and over and over for the duration of the audiobook. I'm not joking, he must restate the exact same thing five hundred times.
What's more the premise is largely absurd. Summarised it can be stated as 'don't worry about stuff'. Let everything wash over you, don't identify, don't grasp, just go with the flow and be happy. All very well until you realise that the entirety of human achievement has been accomplished by people with the exact opposite mindset. Scientific advancement, social reform, human rights - none of these came about through people sitting around and 'just letting go'.
Maybe this book is a revelation for a lucky subset of the privileged middle classes, who may benefit from not dwelling on the horrors of life such as the dog groomerer failing to address Lulu's matted butt hair or when Tarqin's dance class has been cancelled for the second time this week. For the rest of us it's fuzzy idealism which not only cannot be followed in modern society, it should not be followed. I have a lot of time for Buddhists but the worldview of someone who spends their day up a mountain drinking tea and turning a prayer wheel does not translate well to those who live in modern, Western society.
It really sinks in you can go over stuff again and again
Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander
Anyone who wants to know where they come from and where they've going in life MUST read or listen to this book
