The Untethered Soul : The Journey Beyond Yourself
Who are you? When you start to explore this question, you find out
how elusive it really is. Are you a physical body? A collection of
experiences and memories? A partner to relationships? Each time you consider these aspects of yourself, you realize that there is much more to you than any of these can define. In The Untethered Soul,
spiritual teacher Michael A. Singer explores the question of who we are and arrives at the conclusion that our identity is to be found in our
consciousness, the fact of our ability to observe ourselves, and the world around us. By tapping into traditions of meditation and
mindfulness, Singer shows how the development of consciousness can
enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful
thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and
self-realization.The Untethered Soul offers a frank and friendly discussion of consciousness and how we can
develop it. In part one, Singer examines the notion of self and the inner dialogue we all live with. Part two examines the experience of energy as it flows through us and works to show listeners how to open their hearts to the energy of experience that permeates their lives. Ways to overcome tendencies to close down to the rest of the world are the subject of
part three. Enlightenment, the embrace of universal consciousness, is the subject of part four. And finally, in part five, Singer returns to daily life and the pursuit of unconditional happiness. Throughout, the book maintains a light and engaging tone, free from heavy dogma and prescriptive religious references. The easy exercises that figure in each chapter help listeners experience the ideas that Singer presents.
Simply the best book I have ever read. Teaches you so much about life and yourself. I see things differently now. Thank you.
Love the book, this audio presentation is off.
Loved the audiobook so much while listening thru Libby that I decided to buy it on Apple. While the price was right, the presentation is completely off. Rather than chapters, there are tracks (ie. 1,2,3,4,5..). They do not have those tracks titled and the tracks do not correspond with the chapters (ie. Track 12 is actually Chapter 13). It's frustrating as I bought this book to go back and listen based on key chapters. Zero ability to do that without creating a document to remind me that Track 3 is Chapter 4. That still doesn't provide me with an understanding of what chapter 4 is. I've noted this is only a problem here, other audiobook companies have the correct chapter assignments/titles.
