A mind-blowing spiritual experience

Where does The Religion of Tomorrow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The content of the book brings everything I have learned from all the other audiobooks together in a systematic way together. I am now able to place, for instance, the content of Radiant Heart by Andrew Harvey in its right sphere: States of consciousness - gross, subtle, causal, witness and non dual. Wilber managed to simplify every difficult concept by placing it in different contexts. Wilber's main thrust is that we need to WAKE UP, GROW UP, CLEAN UP AND SHOW UP. For the first time in human history Integral Life brings these four aspects together. The world space (South Africa) that I am surrounded by is prerational with a rational pull. I find myself on the 1st tier, gross, 9 enneagram world space. Wilber's call that we are already part of the coming change is inspiring.

What other book might you compare The Religion of Tomorrow to and why?

I haven't read or listened to other books (except Wilber's) that can come close to the scope, the depth, width and hight of The Religion of Tomorrow.

Which character – as performed by Graeme Malcolm – was your favorite?

I love Graeme Malcolm's performance throughout the 30 plus hours. His conversational performance and nuances made every second an expanded pleasure.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My reaction to the book was a huge WOW. I have been studying Wilber since 2000 and read all his books and with TRoT Wilber draws everything together that exploded my small worldview further into the infinite. Hopefully my own and your growth will increase.

Any additional comments?

Just buy the book (audible, kindle or hardcover) and open yourself to more of your human potential than you ever dreamed of. Don't miss the boat.

Audible works best for me. PDF of charts included

Where does The Religion of Tomorrow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Ken Wilber is an acquired taste. You have to work for understanding, as he covers things broadly and thoroughly. Repetition aids in assimilation, and he is careful to explain as summary each time a term is reused . The first 4 chapters were an overview. Things were "fuzzy", but repetition in the subsequent chapters tend to make all seem more familiar. Listening time is over 30 hours. I plan to listen to it again in about a month and fully expect to understand it all better after the reflection and re-exposure to the terms and jargon which on initial hearing seems overwhelming.

Divergent cultures observe and describe what is known in terms which fit their experience. Wilber presents and integrates these over the grid work he helped to develop. He has been working in this field for decades, and this is a very good rendering of his thesis. The presentation is simple, but not simplistic. Effort to understanding will be rewarded, partly because he summarizes each time he reintroduces a word or concept. I did not find this annoying, but comforting and helpful.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Religion of Tomorrow?

In an overview of Integral Spiral Dynamics, you can see things at a "higher level" looking "downward" at a previous level that cannot be understood from the "lower levels" looking upward, as the awareness and vocabulary is not yet available or present at that lower level.I suggest Ala Alda's "If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face?" as helpful in developing communication skills to encourage dialog instead of name calling between the stages or levels.

What about Graeme Malcolm’s performance did you like?

I found the narrator easy to listen to. Being "English", the narration is little like hearing Shakespearean performance in that attention is required until you get the flow under control of your "ear". He aided the work as it captured the "conversational style" of the written work.

Any additional comments?

What passes as "political discussion" today is appalling. Re-framing this in the awareness of "States of Development" has been helpful.

Exceptionally detailed integral meta-theory. Wow!!

Very plesant to listen to. Haven't read the book, only listened. Repetitititition is not an issue when listening. Ken's most detailed piece I an aware of, contains several pearls and great material for upcomming century, I hope at least.

The wave of the future, The ocean of the present

Would you consider the audio edition of The Religion of Tomorrow to be better than the print version?

Although I have not read the book this audio is such a great way to refresh on Wilber's wisdom teachings and research on marrying the very best of east and west of which is worth countless lifetimes of study and practice. Highly recommended!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

We are all the stars of the show. Now lets figure out together which ways to go.

Which scene was your favorite?

The most comprehensive view of life and enlightenment I have found yet.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Any additional comments?

Download this book and directly absorb the view and suggestions into your mind stream so to saturate everything you do with love, light, clarity, creativity and enlightening energy.

Information deeply worth knowing

It covers "diseases of consciousness" (for lack of a better word) for a good part of the book but it's worth knowing very much so. it also speaks on the beauty and possibility of consciousness. perhaps a bit long for some people, but there are many other books by Ken Wilber which may be a better beginning for integral spirituality.
