The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself


Who are you? When you start to explore this question, you find out how elusive it really is. Are you a physical body? A collection of experiences and memories? A partner in relationships? Each time you consider these aspects of yourself, you realize that there is much more to you than any of these can define. The Untethered Soul, spiritual teacher Michael Singer explores the question of who we are and arrives at the conclusion that our identity is to be found in our consciousness, the fact of our ability to observe ourselves, and the world around us. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization.

This book, co-published with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), offers a frank and friendly discussion of consciousness and how we can develop it. In part one, he examines the notion of self and the inner dialogue we all live with. Part two examines the experience of energy as it flows through us and works to show readers how to open their hearts to the energy of experience that permeates their lives. Ways to overcome tendencies to close down to the rest of the world are the subject of part three. Enlightenment, the embrace of universal consciousness, is the subject of part four. And finally, in part five, Singer returns to daily life and the pursuit of unconditional happiness. Throughout, the book maintains a light and engaging tone, free from heavy dogma and prescriptive religious references. The easy exercises that figure in each chapter help readers experience the ideas that Singer presents.

  1. I am everything and I am nothing. Hong Sau is an experience of “I am He” and “I am Spirit”. The perfection of Single-Point Concentration. Combined with the Perfection of Will and deep Meditation on the Cosmiccc Sound and Light of the Vibration of the Universe… OM, AUM, AMEN on become and immaterial soul. Returning to body and mind you brink back to you Matter Consciousness you Spiritual Consciousness. The difference is the Experience of WHO you ARE.

    What Quantum physics is defining as no Separation from the Original Source of Energy. Matter is Energy and there is no separation of your body, mind and soul. Just the state of Consciousness. On exist in body and mind as matter changes form and the other Cannot be Created or Destroyed. Matter is Energy/LIght/Spirit. Just a gross/slow form of Existence/Creation and the Creator.
