334: The Path of Unconditional Happiness

Listen On

unconditional happiness

Do you ever have that experience where you’re reading a book and find yourself nodding your head and thinking, “Yes!” because you agree and resonate so deeply with what the author is saying?

That happened with me over and over again when I read The Untethered Soul and its follow up, The Surrender Experiment, by Michael Singer. They quickly became two of my favorite books of all time, and there are millions of people who would say the same things about his work.

Today, I’m going to read one of my favorite chapters from The Untethered Soul to you: “The Path of Unconditional Happiness.” This chapter reaffirms a fundamental philosophy that has been one of the most important I’ve ever discovered, what Michael Singer calls “the highest spiritual path.” It is that life is meant to be enjoyed, that suffering is optional, and how we always have a choice to be happy, regardless of our circumstances, which begins the moment we make our “vow of unconditional happiness.”

I invite you to keep an open mind, think about the emotions that cause you pain as well as those that best serve you, and think about how you can apply Michael Singer’s wisdom to your life so that you can truly enjoy every moment and be the happiest you’ve ever been.
