Default The Untethered Soul - The Journey Beyond Yourself.

One thing I enjoy about all of you that I am meeting on this forum, is that like the title of this book I just found, is that you, me, we are all untethering our souls, Avatar set us free, and then I found this book that talks about the same thing.

Its written by Michael A. Singer and the first question it asks is "Who are you really?" and then "What would it be like to be free from limitations and soar beyond your boundaries?" Well for me that's exactly the questions I've been asking ever since I saw Avatar.

So far I've just started reading it and right off the go its quotes Shakespeare

"This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man."

I'm looking forward to the journey of discovery in its pages, and well being a librarian of course love to share when I find something I think will be a good read. LOL!

Its talking about how being honest with ourselves is like trying to catch the wind, "after all, to which 'self' are we to be true?" The grumpy self, the humble self, the heart-broken self, the wounded depressed self, or the fanciful light hearted self? It pointed notes that 'self' is an elusive concept~! Ultimately the journey of the book states its not to delve into psychology, philosophy, or even religious views, but rather to take you into the expert of our life, ourselves. It appears that it's purpose is to guide one through an intuitive process and that the chapters are simply to be used as mirrors to look at ourselves from different 'angles'. And in the ability to find ourselves, we have will find the ability to free ourselves.

So here's hoping as the book says, I don't get distracted and disoriented and can stay focused, not something Kat is known for, LOL!

Sounds like a very interesting read but from past experience, such books tell you how to find yourself rather than guiding you on how to do so. Is this the case with this one? Also, where do you get these books from? I'd love to read them but I have no idea where to get hold of them.

I have to admit Kat got distracted again and only managed so far to read the first couple of chapters. But so far it seems to be about guiding you on how to do so, as you say. Example first chapter talks about the inner voice and points out we "recreate the outside world inside ourselves" and then we live in our mind. "what if we decided not to do this?" "Come to know the one who watches the voice, and you will come to know one of the greater mysteries of creation.", by learning to observe not narrate.

And as for where to get, while being a librarian that naturally would be my first suggestion.

2nd would be Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself: Amazon.co.uk: Michael Singer: Books

Again, thanks for the link.

The library really is something we all should make of more often. I think the last time I went in one was literally about 9 years ago...
