Logan rated it liked it Shelves: 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 Frwke 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.
Sometimes it happens and its better to be in ,ucid mode than having all of our senses assaulted. Just so long a This book is full of many insights that Fteke can honestly say I hadn’t ever come across before.
Just so long as that isn’t our permanent state of frrke. 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 luccid you to live a happier life.
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 lcid think of writing a book like that myself, which maybe makes me look more critically at it. I had fteke 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 ffeke 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. Jan 22, Alex Behrman rated it did not like it Shelves: Gag me with a spoon.
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: 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 Lucic puts forward were similar frekee 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.
Lucid Living: Life is a dream and you can wake up by Tim Freke
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. The author just spews a weak regurgitation of the same metaphysical mumbo-jumbo that you probably pondered and discarded as puerile nonsense as a pre-teen.
This load of crap was merely a smokescreen for the author to meekly implore us with the oh-so-enlightening request to “all just get along”. If I could give this book zero stars Reading this tiny book was probably the biggest waste of time in my life. If I could give this book zero stars I would.
The author wasted a half-hour of my life with this pretentious piece of trash and if I ever saw him on the street I would punch him in the throat for it. The people giving this “book” 5 stars are either joking or pretending they “got” some meaningful message out of this to avoid feeling awkward for not “getting it”. Give it up folks, there is nothing to “get” from livig steaming pile of crap.
May 03, Rebecca rated it liked it Shelves: This an extremely easy read – it took me 30 minutes, not an hour. I think it’s a good introduction to the concept of lucid living, especially if you tm got a philosophical background. I took an entire course in college on existentialism, and another one on the philosophy of mind, and so I didn’t find this too enlightening, freeke I wasn’t blown away by the concepts.
But they are great concepts, and if you’re interested in thinking a little differently about life, existence, and awareness, it’s This an extremely easy read – it took me 30 minutes, not an hour.
But they are great concepts, and if you’re interested in thinking a little differently about life, existence, and awareness, it’s definitely worth an hour of your time. Aug 10, Jessica Davidson rated it it was amazing Shelves: Timothy Freke claims this book will turn your world inside out livong an hour. It may take a little longer than that to ffeke awakening and reading a book won’t help, but this book may help prod you in the right direction.
If you follow his arguments and fteke the experiments for yourself, you may find the light flickers on briefly. It won’t work if you just read it straight through. For full review visit: Nov 28, tina michelle rated it liked it. Another gift from my Christmas list It says an hour and it means it. Interesting concept about consciousness and philosophy.
I can’t say I actually wrapped my brain around it. But ,iving have been thinking about it a lot–which is a good sign that it had some impact. Feb 15, Adam Dillon rated it really liked it. Does exactly what it says on the tin.
