Sorry but didn't like it at all

it rambles to much for my taste and doesn't enlighten you at all. I really thought it was going to have some special meaning but for me it didn't.
It picks a point and goes over and over and over it that it makes you skip through it.

Lift of spirit

I’m a doctor of psychology and a clarity coach. At my line of work, I can at times feel depleted in spiritual energy in extension to giving mine to my clients. This book helps me keep my spirit up and grounds me to be of support to others in balance and perspective. Peter berkrot does an exceptional job for a narrater. His voice and tone are mindful and conscious. Simply extraordinary book!

same fictitious nonsense

The author begins with "facts" not supported by any credible research, and uses every logical fallacy to reach conclusions about solving all manner of physical and mental ailments. Use the word "ENERGY" in place of science you don't understand, and feelings that are uncomfortable, and you will have written the sequel to this book.

My touchstone

This book was recommended to me via a podcast. It really hit a chord with me and has helped me immeasurably when the monkey in my head starts screaming about something. I go back to it again and again when I'm having a hard time letting something go. It's just something that happened; move on.

I hope you get as much out of it as I did.

Peter Berkrot's performance is soul searching, but at the same time allows me to laugh at the

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Probably should have been listened to in one sitting, but definitely one that I will listen to a second time.

There are much better books out there

I bought this book because of the great reviews but unfortunately I didn't get much out of it. If you have not read any other books of this genre then it may appeal to you but much of the material has been addressed already in a more substantial, mature way by other authors (Tolle, Chopra). I found this book to be very, very repetitive and at times felt like yeling out "I get the point'. I also found it to be quite immature in it's examples and logic for example: "Do you think God likes to be around people who are happy or people that are miserable" Imagine you are God and you pop down to earth and ask the first person you see, do you like it here?

So overall I would not recommend this book.

Horrible Book!

This is a book based on magical thinking, and oversimplification/invalidation of the real difficulties of life. According to this book, if you don't have lots of energy for some reason--even if it's because you have a serious health issue such as chronic fatigue, just "decide" to have loads of energy! Boom. Problem solved. Don't waste your time on this ridiculous book.

Repetitive. Repetitive. Repetitive.

I purchased this book after rave reviews from multiple sources but I couldn't get through the first 3 chapters. The author simply repeats ONE idea and talks in circles. How this turned into a whole book that people loved, I have no idea. Here's the whole book : The conversation in your head is you having a conversation with yourself. Stop letting it talk and narrate every moment of your life.

Esoteric mumbo jumbo

This book might come across as deep to hippies, and other types - who are currently tripping on acid. BUT, for a logical, rational, and practical person, it makes zero sense. There are literally NO practical steps or calls to action in this book. It's pseudo phylosophy at its worst.

hypnosis?

I really hated this book. it was so repetitive with no detail. It felt like I was listening to a hypnosis CD. It was like a scientist trying to be spiritual.

Messages within the waffle

Some decent messages, if you can beat the tone and stand the waffle for several hours. I found it a really tough listen but persevered. Not sure it was worth the couple of nougats.

Makes sense but you need to feel it

I completely agree with the approach taken. I suspect that the inner journey means we have to let go of some connections with the outside world. though painful it will bring more joy.

Straight to the point

I've read so many books on waking up to reality and this one really stands out. It's relatively short and gets to the point quickly and concisely. I highly reccomend this book to anyone who is already on the path to discovering the truth of being, but also to new comers too. It really is a wonderful book and is one of my most recommended books on spirituality :)

Wow, what a book!! Truly amazing insight!

I started listening to this book and very early on my energies rose up within me.

The following day after listening about a third of the way into the book (and after patting myself on the back for being able to see myself the day before!!) I became distracted and believed I had to put lots of thought into the following days 'problems' instead of having time to finish listening to the entire book... Now, only for the purposes of this review and with no reflection on the effectiveness of the teachings/showings (Not giving energy to perceived mistakes etc)... WHAT A MISTAKE I MADE THAT DAY!! 🤣 Though without the complete insight from the rest of the book since then I wouldn't be able to write this review as I'd still be lost in layers and layers of my mind whilst believing it to be real and me again!

Already started listening for the 2nd time around as I'm still too easily distracted and back in I go again (mind/Illusion).

I am okay with being happy by being in the present moment as much as possible for now, while I continue to create the muscle memory of my awareness so to speak. Still some momentum from years of believing the Illusion, though from within the Illusion to be able to step back out/in it is so helpful. Plus from any seat/perspective, this is another truly amazing experience to be fully enjoyed in its entirety.

Just in case my ramblings are too long winded, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!

Thank you Michael A Singer,
with much love from me to you, all!

Descended into a religious sermon

This started out well with reasonably good advice and insightful information about the merits of yoga, mindfulness and meditation for dealing with anxiety, depression and that angry inner saboteur. I became less connected with the text though once it revealed it’s true intentions which was basically a prolonged religious sermon about the so called virtues of faith and belief in a relationship with a god. This undermined some of the actual wisdom in the text.

Abstract

While there were some handy tips in this book, overall, I found that it was quite an abstract book. More practical examples would have been good, otherwise it's very hard to know how to apply the key messages in the book. It's easier to say "let go" than to do,
