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)
loved it! makes the complex idea of "what is life?" very simple. I've read it twice. was even better the 2nd time around.
Every time I listen to it, I hear something new to heighten my awareness.
I read this book before purchasing the audio version. I have listened to the entire audio a minimum of 5 times because every time I listen, I hear something I didn't hear before and it only heightens my awareness and leads me to further understanding.
I recommend this book those whom have ears to listen or eyes to see. This book is so beautiful.
This book starts in a comical way which truly caught my attention. Great information that hooked me until the end.
I loved it. Buy it!
I've been working on this for years new insights and awesome explanations more food for thought on my journey thank you I always choose happy I loved your thoughts on happy. I'm being challenged with cancer right now so your chapters gave me food for thought as I move thru this time period opening my heart and keeping open no matter what and how difficult it gets
"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.
"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.
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
"Good but not revelatory"
Good read and with some new perspectives. At times I was expecting more but perhaps I was expecting too much.
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.
"Great wisdom in this book"
Very inspirational, heartfelt experience whilst listening to these teachings. What a wonderful world we live in. If only we could let all its wonder be part of who we are.
"Great entry to Eastern thinking. "
Very accessible and common sense explanation of applying Eastern meditative thinking to modern western life.
