Notice: This is a SUMMARY of “The Soul Unchained. Journey Beyond Ourselves” by Michael Singer.
Spiritual guru Michael Singer’s book “The Soul Unchained. Journey Beyond Ourselves” explores our consciousness. Even when you are happy, your inner voice expresses doubt and fear, and tries to teach you how to live. It prevents you from enjoying life because it does not allow you to perceive reality objectively. This inner voice evaluates events, which persuades your consciousness to create a model of the world in which you feel comfortable. How can you separate this inner voice of self-reflection from your true self? Why are you so afraid to change your life? How can you get rid of negative thoughts? The book, a collection of lectures on yoga philosophy, self-concept, the meaning of life, and the theory of the mind, was number one on the New York Times Best Seller list. Singer's ideas even caught the attention of Oprah Winfrey, who then decided to invite the author on her talk show.
