How are we doing as a civilization? Are we missing anything? Why are societies so deeply divided? What happened to the many advanced cultures that preceded ours, evidenced by the impressive, mysterious ruins that litter the globe? Are there sentient beings visiting us from other planets, and if so, why haven't they made themselves known? Is there a God like the one we've been taught to believe in? We all ask questions like these not even expecting answers - but what if answers existed?

I’ve read a lot of channeled works and there’s something about this one that just isn’t right. It feels odd to have a work dictated by beings from another planet who are so sophisticated spiritually that they can project to someone on earth, yet still have so many social and other issues in their own society. There’s such a disconnect here that makes me wonder about the level of veracity of the work. It feels at times like some not altogether very good creative writing.

The Essence of Self-Realization, nearly 300 sayings rich with spiritual wisdom, is the fruit of that labor of love. The scope of this book is vast - it offers as complete an explanation of life's true purpose, and the way to achieve that purpose, as may be found anywhere. Filled with lessons and stories that Yogananda shared only with his closest disciples, this volume offers one of the most insightful and engaging glimpses into the life and lessons of a great sage.

I couldn’t finish this - I didn’t get past the first chapter. The narration is breathy and awful. I hope someone else picks it up to read as I’m sure some pearls of wisdom are contained within!

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

Hillary clearly got a rough deal during the 2016 election campaign. There are lots of reasons to rail - especially against a completely irresponsible media. But when she starts having a go at Bernie - which was just legitimate politicking - I turn off. In the end this book is quite repetitive and could have been half as long. Having said that, I like Hillary more having listened to this than before. For the 20+ odd years she has been in the public eye, she feels warmer and more human now. If she ever decides to run again I hope she brings more of this Hillary to her campaign. She’d be unbeatable.

Any additional comments?

For anyone interested in understanding more about the world around them the trilogy written by Robert Monroe is compulsory reading. These three books are beautifully written and just as beautifully narrated by Kevin Pierce. They are a pleasure to listen to. I found this, the first book quite disconcerting. Many of Mr Monroe’s experiences don’t sound Iike much fun but but his charting of his journey with such openness, sincerity and integrity is spell binding. Make sure you read this so you understand what courage Robert Monroe had as he faced into his special gift and his curiosity as he worked to develop it. Then you can read and reread books 2 & 3 as I have understanding the full context of the journey. Mr Monroe gave a gift to the world in charting his journey so bravely so that if we chose to follow we can do so with more control and awareness. What a beautiful, amazing and courageous man.

I have done a very expensive course in transcendental meditation and did not get nearly the depth of insight that I received from this book. Thank you Andy, as always for your generosity and humanity in sharing your journey. Reading this book has deepened my understanding of meditation techniques, how and why they work and this has already started to give me more out of my practice. This book, you and the Headspace app are gifts to the world. Thank you.
