This book is full of many insights that I can honestly say I hadn't ever come across before. The idea, that we are metaphorically in the Matrix, and can wake ourselves up to relocate in Zion is interesting.
In fact I can see how most human beings simply go through the motions of life without really grasping the depth of experience that every moment of living offers.
But that's okay. Sometimes it happens and its better to be in survival mode than having all of our senses assaulted. Just so long a This book is full of many insights that I can honestly say I hadn't ever come across before.
Just so long as that isn't our permanent state of operation. However if you chose to read this book, open it at a time that you are genuinely contemplating life and are looking for a way to change or change your perspective. Otherwise the words herein will fall upon deaf ears and the reader will most likely roll their eyes and consider it a bunch of hooey.
In other words, read this one with a grain of salt. Not everything will apply or resonate with you, but maybe something small will which will enable you to live a happier life. Nice little book. Indeed, you can read it in an hour. Clean, simple, enlightening writing. Did it do anything for me? Not really, except for one minor insight I hadn't had before.
I could think of writing a book like that myself, which maybe makes me look more critically at it. I had expected something a little more practical in terms of how to actually live lucidly. At best, a very light introduction to some of the basic ideas of mindfulness and compassion.
At worst, utter fluff that continuously pats itself on the back for being life-changing and deep. Apr 05, Hl rated it it was ok. It's always good to question one's own worldview and revaluate life. This book provoked me to think, but did not deliver on the promise to change me forever.
I agreed with the author in his view that life is an amazing thing which we should all be more appreciative of and that existence itself is fascinating and mysterious. I also think it's interesting that we can only experience the universe from our own perspective and with our own human senses.
However, I don't buy into the idea of an inherent It's always good to question one's own worldview and revaluate life. However, I don't buy into the idea of an inherent awareness which is separate and above mind, body and the external world. I don't believe that we're all somehow the interconnected manifestations of a single 'life-dreamer'.
We're all just a bunch of chemicals brought together by evolution and responding to outside stimuli. And I think that's beautiful. I don't regret the short amount of time I spent reading this book, but nor did I gain very much from it. Maybe I just didn't get it. Lucid Living is an interesting book that can be easily read in one sitting.
It is all about the idea that we are living in a dream world. This awareness makes it easier to manifest things in life. You are the dreamer after all. It is a great book to read if you have an open mind about it. The concept is explained pretty well and makes you think about the possibility long after Lucid Living is an interesting book that can be easily read in one sitting.
The concept is explained pretty well and makes you think about the possibility long after reading. Lucid Living made me aware again of the fact that YOU manifest everything in life. You are the one that chooses your path and how to deal with everything around you. Therefore I would recommend this book. To simply remind you of this fact while having a philosophical conversation with the writer.
Very clever and easy to read way of explainjng pretty complex stuff. Feb 28, Carlos Ramos rated it it was ok. It is indeed a short read. However, it did not evoke me any philosophical questions or felt it delivered on his promise. It was a nice past time, but nothing really important or eye opening. I want to know more This book has inspired me to want to know more about lucid living.
Tim Freke introduces what I would call 'the core beliefs' of such a perspective. His approach is welcoming, inviting and encouraging. I love his writing style, and I was touched by his words. But I feel this he doesn't explain lucid living in as much detail as I'd have liked: for example, I was confused for a while about what he meant by the state of dreaming. I'm a day dreamer, always have been, but the way I want to know more This book has inspired me to want to know more about lucid living.
I'm a day dreamer, always have been, but the way he described it was different, and difficult to make sense of. Then there was how he doesn't really differentiate between being asleep and being in a dream like state. Small details, I know, which is why I have given this book three stars. Also, the principles Tim puts forward were similar to a Buddhist's way of thinking, really I couldn't tell the difference. Then there was how we weren't told of the bigger picture in living lucidly, or the advantages, and research, behind it.
It was obvious he knew what he was talking about, I just wish he had shared more with his eager readers- considering just how interesting the topic was. I received this book through NetGalley. Jan 09, Jeff rated it did not like it. Reading this tiny book was probably the biggest waste of time in my life. What a load of garbage. There is nothing enlightening, interesting or remarkable in this book.
