Publisher's Summary

Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul, tells the extraordinary story of what happened when, after a deep spiritual awakening, he decided to let go of his personal preferences and simply let life call the shots. As Singer takes you on this great experiment and journey into life's perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in a radically different way.

Spirituality is meant to bring about harmony and peace. But the diversity of our philosophies, beliefs, concepts, and views about the soul often leads to confusion. To reconcile the noise that clouds spirituality, Michael Singer combines accounts of his own life journey to enlightenment - from his years as a hippie-loner to his success as a computer program engineer to his work in spiritual and humanitarian efforts - with lessons on how to put aside conflicting beliefs, let go of worries, and transform misdirected desires. Singer provides a road map to a new way not of living in the moment but to exist in a state of perpetual happiness.

Could not stop listening!

It is so inspiring to listen to Michael. I had never heard of him before I listened to this book. I hope I can do the same: let life guide me, not the ‘ I want’ or ‘I don’t want’. Beautiful book!

A truly life changing account of the power of surrender. I loved the concept of looking at everything you do each day as an act of service - giving you very best at all times and then surrendering to the flow of life. The miracles really do lie in what happens thereafter.

Best book I've read in years

Friday night 2 weeks ago I began reading the paperback. Within hours I'd purchased it on audible as I couldn't 'get it in me faster enough' by reading alone; instead I imbibed it whilst showering, driving, cooking, everywhere. The addict in me was hopelessly hooked. Over the weekend I CONSUMED IT in ways I've rarely done with other books. I was totally compelled by Michael, his authenticity, his beautiful way of living and the power of his message. Before Sunday night was done I must have relistened to the final paragraph of the last page more than 50 times!! There was something about it that was so profoundly balming and calming to my psyche, body, heart and spirit, I needed it like I needed air to breathe. The more I listened the saner I felt; things inside me began to become quieter. I find this intriguing given I already meditate twice daily, have done for years, exercise daily and am mentally well adjusted.

The entire unfolding was a perfect example of how when the student is ready the teacher appears. Interestingly the book has layed on my shelf for the past 9 months untouched - the moment was clearly perfect, as it always is.
Within 4 days I'd got LIVING YOUR LIFE FROM A PLACE OF SURRENDER 8 session Course (purchasable from Sounds True) and am almost finished my first round of listening, once complete I'll go back through to really work the material.

Oprah, Anthony and Jade Robbins are followers of Michael, it's no surprise.

If you desire greater mental calm and peace then this is HOW.
When you're done with trying to make life confirm to your terms and are ready to align your will with Life's, to SURRENDER and 'let go' to a loving Intelligence and Perfection that supports you every moment of every day, then this is HOW.
When joy, excitement and freedom become too valuable to compromise, then this is HOW.

Don't take my word for it; follow your guidance which has brought you to read this, to take the next step and give yourself this life changing gift. Michael is a living breathing Genius, the Embodiment of LOVE, Humility and Possibility, let him entertain and inspire you every step of the way. Deep gratitude Michael for the gift of your life's work. Much love and respect

An addicting listen!

I really enjoyed listening to this audio book. I think Michael A Singer is an excellent writer and I only wish he wrote/narrated more books. This audio book takes you through a journey of Michaels awakening and it is truly astonishing. I do not usually write reviews but this really deserves one.

A good read - at least for the first half

I totally believe in the core message of this which is to surrender to the ‘now’, whatever it is that is being thrown at you, and I particularly enjoyed the first half which was more heavily spiritually orientated. The latter half was more focused on a legal case which provided deep personal challenges for the author but in itself was less relevant in terms of spiritual messaging beyond the core message and ‘miracle’ based text. I was left with a question as to whether this latter subject matter dominance was used as a means of getting the authors truth out into the public domain (ie ‘for the avoidance of doubt’) and raises a question in itself about the role the ego may still be playing. Still worth a read. The authors other book, the untethered soul, is very much worth reading.

Truly amazing

A truly wonderful account of Michael A Singers letting go. In places it moved me to the point of tears. We all have that complaining voice in our head, but to ignore that and just surrender to the perfection of life and it to move so beautifully. WOW Michael you are the man 👍

read the untethered soul

this is an autobiography of a successful billionaire. I like the first half it shows singer surrendered to what is and the spiritual life from a young age. however the untethered soul is an incredible book that gives insight into awareness of your inner being. I am not really interested in the story of singers success although obviously impressive.

A story for the privileged hippie

If you listen to this you'll hear the words "MY meditation" 3479837894 times. It's a pleasant narration however the story comes off as the egoistical ramblings of a privileged white male. In summary, the surrender experiment someone who takes no responsibility for anything. He can do this, as he has ready access to education, used his parents money to buy land, mingled with the privileged and on and on. He is so consumed with self he only wants to meditate. Constantly. He puts no effort into getting his PhD.... This is passed off as surrender. In any language, it's winging it. He can do this, as he has nothing to loose. He is so focused on the self, everyone and everything else is a distraction. This is a story of someone completely divorced from reality. Not worth your money.

Great message but story drawn out

I loved this book and the message but it didn't have practical application to surrendering. Towards the end i realised this is like an autobiography. Still worth the read but if you want a how to, this isnt it. I assume The Untethered Soul (his other book ) will be more around the practicalities of surrendering...will see.

Couldn’t stop listening

From the beginning to the end I was hooked and couldn’t stop listening and have shared the book with many people. I had listened to The Untethered Soul first and am in awe of Michael Singer’s story. I’m motivated to go back and listen to The Untethered Soul a second time. Just brilliant

Wondrous

What a way to live life. Having loved the Untethered Soul, I purchased this after a recommendation from a friend. I thin its one of the most inspirational books I have read in that it's a lived experience of what it means to trust life and be in the moment. It confirms my experience that life will be magical if only we can get out of the way.
