Description

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. The Untethered Soul, spiritual teacher Michael 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.
This book, copublished with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), offers a frank and friendly discussion of consciousness and how we can develop it. In part one, he 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 readers 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 readers experience the ideas that Singer presents.

    I just completed reading this amazing book and I will return to page one to start again. I had a stunning glimpse of THE truth and I want to see it again. But the real benefit is the encouragement I feel to go within...all the truth and love is in me...as I tap these keys...it is in here, behind my fingers. Michael has made it clear!

    I have been interested in and studying this subject for about 10 years now and to be honest I have never come across a book quite like this. THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ANYONE OUT THERE TRYING TO GAIN A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THEIR LIFE!!! From my experience I know just how many books there are out there promising this or promising that but I am here to tell you THIS IS THE ONE!!! Michael Singer has written this book in such a way that anyone out there whether they are a beginner or more of an expert can understand the concepts proposed by him and gain a greater understanding of how we as humans react to pain and trauma by closing ourselves off to the world and how we can actually be FREE from that and LIVE A LIFE OF COMPLETE FREEDOM AND UNCONDITIONAL HAPPINESS!!! A MUST READ!!!!
