Publisher's Summary

Awareness awakens you to the truth that you possess everything you need right now to be happy and fulfilled.

Happiness is your natural state. You don't need to do anything to acquire it; you only need to drop something. This audiobook shows you what that is. There is not a single person who ever gave time to being aware who’s quality of life didn't change.

You see life differently because you are different. You respond to people and situations differently. You see things you have never seen before. Beautiful things. You're much more energetic, much more alive. When you finally awake, you don't try to make good things happen; they just happen. You understand suddenly that everything that happens to you is good. You understand that all is well, even at times when things seem a mess. You discover that there is a loving force surrounding you at all times that is always within reach, always right here in your midst, making your life meaningful and beautiful and rich.

Amazing presentation. So happy for the audio!

Reading the book was life changing. Anthony explains spiritual concepts that seem confusing when anyone else teaches them and makes them understandable and actionable. He is so full of joy and brings this important practice of awareness and its power to life with humor and clarity simultaneously . The book and the audio are a joy. I'm so happy for the audio because it infuses even more of his energy than the book allows. Same amazing content. Even more energy and accessibility for repeat "reading". Books like this I want to listen to again and again to learn at a deep level and apply it. I gain something new from every listen. Highly recommend the book and the audio. Thank you so much to the Anthony De Mello Center for making this audio available in Tony's voice. I was wishing for this!!

Spiritual Entertainment

I did not like this personally as I found the laughter of the audience in the background to be quite distracting. I also thought that the tone was a little too casual. The subject being discussed is a serious matter but this felt more like spiritual entertainment. People will be entertained and feel like they have understood something and then get back to their regular business. This is not what I am looking for. Spirituality for me, at this point in my life, is a matter of life and death.

Wisdom

The learnings which Anthony DeMello shares in this book fell like a hammer on my mind and in my heart. I ordered the hard copy as well to remote. To this audio and underline and re-write so I can memorize it and engrain it in my being.

Life changing

If you are looking for one work that covers everything you need to know about how to start improving yourself, look no further

This audio book is a recording of the author giving a series of lectures on awareness so you can hear the reaction of the audience (mostly laughter) and it feels more authentic than some audiobooks of the same topics.

Some other reviews have noted that listening to the author lecture was distracting but I think improved the experience.

Great content, audio quality not so much

Loved the book and it’s content covered. Recommend listening at x1.5 speed. Very slow at normal speed. Audio quality lacking but in the end worth hearing it read by Anthony firsthand then having Seth Rogan voice over

Utter schlock

The usual mix of nonsense from a charlatan “guru”. You have a problem - you need to wake up. But I can’t tell you how, oh no, you have to realize it! It’s your fault if my utter nonsense makes no sense to you! And you must just have faith that the master has “woken up” because they say so.

A Searching for improvement miss.

He drones on and on to make his too long book even longer. By repeating information like “lose your desire for approval” doesn’t explain how to do that and leaves the listener wanting. His accent is very distracting. I’m disappointed in this audiobook.

One of the best books on real spirituality

I read this years ago and was so please when I discovered the audiobook. Wisdom in a lighthearted way. Anthony De Mello is profound, kind, funny, and a joy to listen to. Surpasses all the new age mumbo jumbo about spirituality that you tend to get nowadays.

interesting approach to happiness

I'm not a spiritual person and I felt there's lots of spirituality in this book I don't really relate to. However, there are many interesting topics and I really liked Anthony's approach. My favourite concept was: we tend to gather things to be happy and instead what we need is to drop them.

Recommended book overall
