Allmänna fakta



There's way too much conflation of Eastern philosophy now with mysticism. Authors and practitioners need to begin to make a clear distinction once again. Singer sounds more like a preacher than someone expounding on an aspect of Eastern philosophy. This generation of writers and teachers are largely suspect now as a result. If I wanted talk of Christ, I would go to church.

A gift from a friend for my recovery reading, I read Singer's autobiography with interest. This account of living fully surrendered to what the flow of life brings argues that "perfection" unfolds as one accepts what life offers. This may include founding a spiritual retreat, starting a custom construction business, and founding a multi-million dollar software company.

Singer makes no pretense at lilting prose or literary style. He often writes of his own wonder at how events aligned for each stage of his journey. However, while he names influential people in his life, his writing does not reflect deep connection with others, but rather a fascination with his own development. He mentions marrying a woman who moves to his retreat center and the fact that they have a daughter together. Nothing of these relationships surfaces again as he focuses on the important spiritual teachers and later business partners he works with.

That said, many of his ideas sparked connection to the work of Byron Katie, [b:Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life|9762|Loving What Is Four Questions That Can Change Your Life|Byron Katie|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388258105s/9762.jpg|2919169], and many of the teachings of Jesus and Buddha.

What does it mean to lose your life to gain it? Full surrender means trust. Perhaps one reason few ever attempt such an experiment is because they don't trust life, the universe, a higher power, or God to be resourceful and good.

Only the first half was really interesting, although the legal tangle that arose and resolved was truly astonishing.

Wow. I found this book really helpful in getting out of my own head and into my expansive self. This is a book you need to read slowly to let everything sink it. Yet it's very easy to relate to as he has fantastic metaphors to illustrate his concepts. You owe it to yourself to read this.
