Why do we bother to search? What is it that brings us to determine that our comfortable, more or less pleasant lives are not adequate and that we need to look for something more?
We can stay distracted from this discomfort for a long time, but it doesn't rid us of that lingering, nagging doubt about our lives. Digging deeper is the real cure. But how do we dig deeper?
This short audiobook is a treasure trove of practical wisdom. It is the result of several interviews with author and teacher of Indian philosophy Scott Teitsworth. In these interviews, Teitsworth shares examples of digging deeper - the profound insights of Indian psychology and philosophy in language readily accessible to the modern seeker of truth. He emphasizes how to apply this ancient wisdom in a practical manner so that we might optimize our personal freedom, minimize the effects of stress and trauma, and release untapped creative abilities.
It takes courage to relax our defense systems and dig deeper. If we don't, we are doomed to mediocre and conflict-ridden lives. But Scott's message is encouraging and inspiring: "Know that freedom is possible. Choose it, allow it, enjoy it - and laugh a little!"
I have just listened to "Liberating Ourselves" for the second time. The wisdom that the author brought to light is amazing and really beyond my ability to express how wonderful it is. The depth of Scott’s understanding, as in his other books is remarkable, and was only possible through years of dedicated study and meditation. What a gift he has given with this sharing. I only wish that Scott had been able to personally present the audio book. The narrator, even though competent in his own right, really did not express the vision and emotion that he was reading about. You could tell that he was just reading a script and didn't have full comprehension of the content. In spite of that, it is a gem of inestimable worth.
