I was expecting a little more from this book. This book only touches on very basic Buddhist principles. While I did like the way these principals were broken down with real life examples I found myself frustrated with the line of questioning hoping that the author would choose deeper philosophical questions when faced with someone as insightful as the Dalai Lama. I would recommend reading one of the Dalai Lamas many books rather than this one.

Do not give up on this book too soon. I wasnt loving this book at the beginning but thought I would stick with it a little longer and I'm so glad I did. This book has left me feeling valued and inspired to shine my light on the world. I will listen again and again. The only negative for me was the narration as the authors accent was distracting as an Australian it was fairly obvious the author was Australian but had lived in the States for some time.

It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

I honestly didn't expect this book to have the effect on me that it did. Unless you have been living under a rock I'm sure you have heard the law of attraction explained by numerous sources. I watched the movie 'The secret' and I didn't like it. I thought it focused to heavily on using it to gain possessions, it was very materialistic and not for me. This book was not like that at all I loved this book so much that after this review I'm going back to listen again. This stuff really works. The changes that have happened since I began reading this book are almost unbelievable.

I don't even think I can put into words the shifts I received from this book. This book resonated with me in the way that it shone a light on inner truths I've always known. I have read so many books on this subject and this one has made the top 3. This is the first that I have finished listening to and then instantly began listening over again from the beginning.

A Course in Miracles (ACIM) - the self-study spiritual-thought system that teaches the way to love and forgiveness - has captivated the minds and captured the hearts of millions of people. Delivering inner peace where fear and pain once prevailed, its universal message is unsurpassed in its power to heal. Yet many students report that they have difficulty grasping the principles or keeping up with the lessons. So even while they yearn for the spiritual freedom the course offers, they put the book aside, hoping to get to it one day.

I have attempted study of ACIM numerous times and always get lost in the text. This book is a great tool as an introduction to the course. I really enjoyed listening to the principles being broken down to relatable stories and the examples of how ACIM lessons can be applied to every day life. I rated only 4 stars as I felt this book still left me wanting more. I guess I will have to return to ACIM for that and this book has inspired me to do so.

This book was not written for me to read. In my opinion it was uninspiring and full of vulgarity and fluff. I was hoping for something that would help reconnect me with my feminine essence, the goddess within, the nurturer, the seductress but instead was encouraged to play with myself, have conversations with my labia and pray to 'the great pussy in the sky' to fix all of my problems. I'm left confused to who the intended audience is of such rubbish.

Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are and learn to live and breathe freely.

While early on this book did have some good advice it mentioned Christianity throughout and quoted bible scriptures often enough to be annoying. I feel like this book should be renamed 'Happily ever after for those who want to be a good Christian'. I was disappointed as I loved the 5 love languages.

Most people think success comes from good luck or enormous talent, but many successful people achieve their accomplishments in a simpler way: through self-discipline. Brian Tracy knows this firsthand. He didn’t graduate from high school, and after working for a few years as a laborer, he realized he had limited skills and a limited future. But through the power of self-discipline, he changed his life.
