Today is a bit of a book review.
I’ve been reading a lot lately. I think of it as an indulgence, as I have a lot going on. Then I was reminded of something a friend always says ‘if its something you really want, you’ll make time for it’ which is so true. So I’ve made time for reading because its something that keeps me connected and grounded, which is important while life is so busy.
I’m reading a book called “The untethered soul” by Michael A Singer. It’s a goodie. It’s not a book for the feint-hearted, purely because it hurts the brain a bit. It asks you to consider concepts that are quite foreign in this physical world we live in. The book is centred around one question “Who am I”. Now there’s a question that on the surface can seem really easy to answer. One or two chapters into this book and you’ll realise it’s more complex than you think.
Without going into too much detail on the book, because I recommend everyone reads it for themselves, it has me thinking very differently this week. As I’ve said before I have a busy mind, and I’m always looking for ways to switch it off, mostly because I’m happier when I’m not over-thinking things. The day to day distractions of life keep us from exploring the deeper meaning of life and the sense of satisfaction it can bring.
For anyone exploring ways to understand yourself better and to enjoy a more fulfilled and happy life, this book ticks all the boxes.
Here is a quote from the author to whet your appetite.
“There is nothing more important to true growth than
realizing that you are not the voice of the mind – you are the
one who hears it.” – Michael A. Singer
