Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind - you are the one who hears it.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“Only you can take inner freedom away from yourself, or give it to yourself. Nobody else can.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“When a problem is disturbing you, don't ask, "What should I do about it?" Ask, "What part of me is being disturbed by this?”
Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“If you want to be happy, you have to let go of the part of you that wants to create melodrama. This is the part that thinks there’s a reason not to be happy. You have to transcend the personal, and as you do, you will naturally awaken to the higher aspects of your being. In the end, enjoying life’s experiences is the only rational thing to do. You’re sitting on a planet spinning around in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Go ahead, take a look at reality. You’re floating in empty space in a universe that goes on forever. If you have to be here, at least be happy and enjoy the experience. You’re going to die anyway. Things are going to happen anyway. Why shouldn’t you be happy? You gain nothing by being bothered by life’s events. It doesn’t change the world; you just suffer. There’s always going to be something that can bother you, if you let it.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“Instead of being encouraged to feel completely protected, loved, honored, and respected by the Divine Force, you've been taught that you're being judged. Because you've been taught that, you feel guilt and fear. But guilt and fear do not open you connection to the Divine; they only serve to close your heart. The reality is that God's way is love, and you can see this for yourself.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“Eventually you will see that the real cause of problem is not life itself. It's the commotion the mind makes about life that really causes the problems.”
Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“We are constantly trying to hold it all together. If you really want to see why you do things, then don't do them and see what happens.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“Do not let anything that happens in life be important enough that you’re willing to close your heart over it.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“The truth is that most of life will unfold in accordance with forces far outside your control, regardless of what your mind says about it.”
Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“Your relationship with God is the same as your relationship with the sun. If you hid from the sun for years and then chose to come out of your darkness, the sun would still be shining as if you had never left. You don’t need to apologize. You just pick your head up and look at the sun. It’s the same way when you decide to turn toward God—you just do it.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“there is no reason to constantly attempt to figure everything out.”
Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“If experience is the best teacher, there's nothing that comes close to the experience of life.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“People tend to burden themselves with so many choices. But, in the end, you can throw it all away and just make one basic, underlying decision: Do you want to be happy, or do you not want to be happy? It’s really that simple. Once you make that choice, your path through life becomes totally clear.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“Imagine if you used relationships to get to know other people, rather than to satisfy what is blocked inside of you. If you’re not trying to make people fit into your preconceived notions of what you like and dislike, you will find that relationships are not really that difficult. If you’re not so busy judging and resisting people based upon what is blocked inside of you, you will find that they are much easier to get along with—and so are you. Letting go of yourself is the simplest way to get closer to others.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“True personal growth is about transcending the part of you that is not okay and needs protection.”
Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“The only permanent solution to your problems is to go inside and let go of the part of you that seems to have so many problems with reality. Once you do that, you'll be clear enough to deal with what's left.”
Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“Billions of things are going on in this world. You can think about it all you want, but life is still going to keep on happening.”
Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“To get some distance from this, you first need to get some perspective. Walk outside on a clear night and just look up into the sky. You are sitting on a planet spinning around in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Though you can only see a few thousand stars, there are hundreds of billions of stars in our Milky Way Galaxy alone. In fact, it is estimated that there are over a trillion stars in the Spiral Galaxy. And that galaxy would look like one star to us, if we could even see it. You’re just standing on one little ball of dirt and spinning around one of the stars. From that perspective, do you really care what people think about your clothes or your car? Do you really need to feel embarrassed if you forget someone’s name? How can you let these meaningless things cause pain? If you want out, if you want a decent life, you had better not devote your life to avoiding psychological pain. You had better not spend your life worrying about whether people like you or whether your car impresses people. What kind of life is that? It is a life of pain. You may not think that you feel pain that often, but you really do. To spend your life avoiding pain means it’s always right behind you.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“How would you feel if someone outside really started talking to you the way your inner voice does? How would you relate to a person who opened their mouth to say everything your mental voice says? After a very short period of time, you would tell them to leave and never come back. But when your inner friend continuously speaks up, you don’t ever tell it to leave. No matter how much trouble it causes, you listen.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind - you are the one who hears it.”
Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“Your inner growth is completely dependent upon the realization that the only way to find peace and contentment is to stop thinking about yourself.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“You're floating in empty space in a universe that goes on forever. If you have to be here, at least be happy and enjoy the experience.”
Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“To attain true inner freedom, you must be able to objectively watch your problems instead of being lost in them... Once you've made the commitment to free yourself of the scared person inside, you will notice that there is a clear decision point at which your growth takes place.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“Your eyes are not really windows through which you look out into the world. Your eyes are cameras that send electronic images of the world into you.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“You naturally begin to center more and more on the spiritual part of your being. You do this not by reaching for the Spirit, but by letting go of the rest.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“The psyche is built upon avoiding this pain, and as a result, it has fear of pain as its foundation. That is what caused the psyche to be. To understand this, notice that if the feeling of rejection is a major problem for you, you will fear experiences that cause rejection. That fear will become part of your psyche. Even though the actual events causing rejection are infrequent, you will have to deal with the fear of rejection all the time. That is how we create a pain that is always there. If you are doing something to avoid pain, then pain is running your life. All of your thoughts and feelings will be affected by your fears.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“If you decide that you're going to be happy from now on for the rest of your life, you will not only be happy, you will become enlightened. Unconditional happiness is the highest technique there is.This is truly a spiritual path, and it as direct and sure a path to Awakening as could possibly exist.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“The only thing you have to know is that opening allows energy in, and closing blocks it out. Now you have to decide whether or not you want this energy. How high do you want to get? How much love do you want to feel? How much enthusiasm do you want to have for the things you do? If enjoying a full life means experiencing high energy, love, and enthusiasm all the time, then don’t ever close.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
“It’s actually a shocking realization when you first notice that your mind is constantly talking. You might even try to yell at it in a feeble attempt to shut it up. But then you realize that’s the voice yelling at the voice:”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
