A presentation of Buddhist thought without the Buddhist component except for sanskara (samsara?) and Tao. Bottom line is to allow for what IS in life without clinging. Pretty easy to understand....Be Yourself and allow others to be who they are without trying to change or judge them. Observe and relax.

A very enjoyable read! This is a book that I think frequent readers, enthralled by nearly any subject, would hope to come by. The irony is that among general civilization there is no apparent nor strong urgency to learn such subject matter, thus, many of us will miss out the life-changing topics discussed in this book that are so generally applicable. This book provides an insight into how someone can improve their life not by trying to improve their life. As a society, we emphasize bettering what is external-jobs, relationships, clothing, cars, academics, etc.-as a means of bettering our lives, whereas Singer emphasizes not changing the external or the truly even the internal, but simply realizing a new internal perspective, taking the seat of consciousness, entering the true depth of one's being: where one merely views thoughts and emotions, and is detached from anything except the present experience. Although I cannot synthesize the true meaning of this book, nor tell you it is devoid of certain flaws, it is a wonderful gateway into an impalpable world that has the most profound effects on our material one: the world of spirituality.

I enjoyed the first couple of chapters, and appreciated and profited from the thoughts about centering and letting go of melodrama. After that it became increasingly repetitive and started mixing the metaphors. It went downhill from there to end with a chapter of random Bible quotes taken totally out of context. Read the first bit; skip the rest.

This book will teach you ways to let your past go and focus more on living in the moment. I enjoyed this book but the end became very religious and related a lot to bible passages. I personally am not religious so I could not relate to the final chapters of this book.

Interesting concepts on how to separate your constant thoughts and external events from who you really are. I felt the book was repetitive at times but worth the read if you are looking for self improvement, being happy or getting in touch with your spirituality. I'll be practicing some of the techniques provided.

Excellent book. Gives a good viewpoint on how to get out of your own way. I will be working on this method, along with other spiritual practices.

This is an excellent book that actually gave concrete strategies on how to remove myself from my thoughts and emotions. It really works too, I've been practicing for a week now and it is very freeing. I'm going to buy this one.

Contrived and full of circular reasoning well suited to rationalize selfish behaviors. A narcissist's bliss, complete with Chopra quotes.

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.
