When his pursuit of happiness in Corporate America feels counterproductive, Timber Hawkeye escapes the fluorescent-lit hell of his cubicle in Seattle and sets out to fully embrace the stress-free lifestyle of Hawaii. Intrigued and curious about what people believe (and why they believe what they do), he questions everything he ever thought was true and discovers the beauty of letting go.
If you consider yourself spiritual but not religious, then you're going to love this inspirational book. And if you want to lead a simple and uncomplicated life with happiness at your fingertips, then you'll want to hear this pause-resister more than once!
"It's not that I'm against religion; I simply don't have one (nor do I believe that we need it to be ethical). My faith is doctrine-free, with a definition of God that doesn't conjure a white man in the sky who dispenses blessings for good behavior and harsh judgments to condemn the bad. That's because I don't believe God does that; religion does. You see, faith is a spiritual practice of continually letting go of certainty, of ego, and of the underlying need to know, while religion is a ceremonial tradition of hanging on, clinging to concrete dogmas, stubborn rigidity, and ageless ritual."
Discover the difference between feelings and emotions, the disparity between truths and facts, and the countless benefits of mindful living.

Simply, a must read...
Yes! In fact, I'm re-listening with my 8 yr old boy as he follows along, book in hand. Love sharing this with him.
Listening to Hawkeye's retelling of his near-death experience. Powerful and relatable in all of it's tones and meanings, most importantly that of "letting go" in our day to day lives.
Lots. Hawkeye's elocution, so crisp and controlled, yet natural, flowy, and subtly varied... truly feels like he's right there next to you, open and wholeheartedly sharing his story.
Despite my extensive Audible library from the spiritial and metaphysical to the behavioral and "scientific", from Thich Nhat Hanh to Bertrand Russell to Brene Brown to Aaron Beck, I found Hawkeye's book uniquely refreshing and uniquely insightful. A stand alone of sorts!
Encore, Timber Hawkeye!
