Synopsis

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--now a New York Times bestseller--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.

Changed me for the better
November 4th, 2014
I recently got out of a relationship because I had too many negative feelings, like jealousy and anxiety. I bought this book soon after. I believe this book has changed a lot about me. Since reading the first chapter, I instantly felt more free. I literally feel my heart changing, and I'm so much more happier and willing to experience life moment to moment. The only thing I was not expecting is the last chapter. It speaks about God. I'm not a religious person, and up until that point I did not see this book going in that direction. I don't mind, it's still nice to see the relation to religion. This book saved me.

This was a pretty good read. Chapters 1-9 didn't provide anything that enlightening but I thoroughly enjoyed chapters 10-19.
