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.

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 👍

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

Moving and beautiful

The untethered soul was my favourite book on spirituality of all time. Whenever I was in a bad place or needed to make a decision, I would open it at random. It always delivered some comfort. So I was curious to see what the author could do to top that.

And this book does, providing a deep and applied principle that took me to the next level. Great job, recommended.

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!

Great book

A very honest and inspiring book that really helped me to “surrender” and stop trying to control things that are outside my reach.

One of the best books I have read.

Set me on a new path.

Thank you Michael Singer for the tears of joy and wonder. Also led me to "The pillars of Zen" and "Autobiography of a yogi" Perfect timing 😉🙏❤

Not a traditional Christian book

Not a traditional Christian book however despite its references to new age spirituality and Indian Jogis I highly recommend this book. if you are a courageous Christian seeking something deeper like myself then this book is a must read.

This is better than excellent... listen now

There are good books, great books, excellent books and then there is THIS book. Western society is so addicted to success, but without happiness... how many are on happy pills to cope with getting out of bed, life in general is pretty sad, stressful and painful. I am sure you have asked yourself "is there a better way?"... well... listen now.

You don't need to possibly go to the lengths Michael did, but figure out what it means to you and your life... you do YOU!! do it NOW
