Publisher's Summary

Suffering is part of the human experience, and everyone in the world is seeking relief. But there is something greater, something that we all share, indeed something that we all are, that can alleviate that pain: It is the formless presence - the loving, boundless awareness - at the heart of all experience. This book cuts through the esotericism surrounding spiritual awakening to help you realize your true nature and show you how to integrate that realization into everyday life.

In life, there is turmoil and inevitable pain. There is war, hunger, failure, heartbreak, and trauma. We struggle in relationships and with our attachments, thoughts, feelings, and memories, trapped in the prison of psychological self-consciousness. Most of us have been conditioned to believe that we are all separate individuals to whom uncomfortable or upsetting things happen. We feel alone and isolated from the world and convince ourselves that the beauty, truth, and goodness we long for are out of our reach. Really, it’s this imaginary division that causes us to suffer.

Boundless Awareness seeks to relieve this suffering by drawing attention to the beautiful, encompassing, cohesive nature of awareness itself, as found in your direct experience. Using practical, contemplative exercises and brief meditations, the author guides you along a broad path of spiritual awakening, deconstructing your delusions of self and separation and integrating a concept of existence that is free from the suffering of individual selfhood, but which acknowledges the attachments, traumatic experiences, and emotional pain of being human.

With this book, you’ll come to realize your innate perfection as the uncreated light of boundless awareness and soften into the open, spacious, and unconditionally loving essence of existence. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of pain and attachments and learn to meet these experiences with a new resilience. Most importantly, you’ll find guidance on how to embody and express this awakening as love, joy, service, and creativity in your daily life.

Good content but OY, the narration!

I really appreciate the content of this book and the way the author distills his vast knowledge into something approachable. However, I tried and tried to keep listening, but the narration was so affected I couldn't stand it. I HAD TO BUY THE BOOK AGAIN IN PAPERBACK from Amazon in order to keep going! That says a lot for the author, but not much for the narration. Everything sounded sickly sweet and new-agey and I couldn't take it. BTW, I seriously tried to let go of my need for the voice to be different than it was. However, I honestly feel that the narration diminishes the teachings offered in this book, and that future listeners deserve to know. Buy the printed version instead. Sorry Audible.

Awesome

i’ve read scores of books on non duality and awakening this work by Michael A. Rodrigeuz is by far the most accessible, intelligent and heart warming of them all. Michael A. Rodrigeuz is a blessing for troubled world.

A Great Guide

I found this to be a thorough and helpful guide for opening to awareness. I most appreciated the chapters on shadow material and the mechanisms of unconscious suffering.

Don't bother

If you're new to the ideas and concepts of consciousness, and you've already purchased this book, you may get something out of it. However, if you haven't already purchased this book, it would probably be best for you to simply search audible for the term consciousness, and then make this book your second choice in your list. Your first choice should be any other.
Areas for improvement:
The same concepts repeated endlessly, the word "altogether" used altogether too often, disorganized thoughts and concepts,
using pointers throughout after having explained that pointers are bad, and many other instances of self-contradiction.

WOW ... An unexpected Masterpiece!

I was not expecting such a completely mind blowing, earth shattering scholarly masterpiece. This is not only a book it's a direct path of practice to attain the deepest most expansive state of existence imaginable.

Amazing book: both enlightening and accessible

As someone on a journey of awakening and who is learning about enlightenment, I found this book to be one of the best I've read. It explains awakening without the use of religious vocabulary which makes it accessible for everyone. It answered many questions that I'd been getting stuck on and as a result I experienced a noticeable positive shift in my way of being after just the first couple of chapters. 100% loved it.

Great book marred by the performance

A really great introduction to non-duality - would highly recommend. However, the narrator had a tendency to mispronounce words and the meditations should include pauses.
