“Only you can take inner freedom away from yourself, or give it to yourself. Nobody else can.”
Michael Singer is the author of the Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment. Both books in my opinion are excellent and must reads for anyone that is curious about who they are.
According to his website Mr. Singer had a deep inner awakening in 1971 while he was working on his doctorate. Afterwards, went into seclusion to focus on his meditation and yoga practice .
In 1975, he started a yoga and meditation center which he called the Temple of the Universe. Everyone of any religion or set of beliefs was welcome to come and practice.
The untethered soul is really an exploration of your inner self. It’s a journey of self discovery to try to understand who you are and why you do the things you do. Also it’s about looking at your habits and paying attention to your habitual thoughts and ways of being.
It’s also about letting go ways of being that prevent you from achieving happiness and self realization.
The surrender experiment, is a biography. It is an intimate story about what led up to Mr. singers deep spiritual awakening.
It’s a very thoughtful and well written book.
