Above Life's Turmoil

Read by Audio Andrea

(4.7 stars; 387 reviews)

The turmoil of the world we cannot avoid, but the disturbances of mind we can overcome. The duties and difficulties of life claim our attention, but we can rise above all anxiety concerning them. Surrounded by noise, we can yet have a quiet mind; involved in responsibilities, the heart can be at rest; in the midst of strife, we can know the abiding peace. The twenty pieces which comprise this book, unrelated as some of them are in the letter, will be found to be harmonious in the spirit, in that they point the reader towards those heights of self-knowledge and self-conquest which, rising above the turbulence of the world, lift their peaks where the Heavenly Silence reigns.

(4 stars)

the timing was perfect

(5 stars)

first of all I have to give appreciation to Andrea Fiore for reading the book and great book I'd have to say I was listening to it but I wasn't really paying attention until chapter 17 and 18 and I took note the glory of Conquest and I'm going to listen to this book on repeat for probably a little while cuz I need to really focus getting "Above Life's Turmoil" and focus on purifying my heart......


(5 stars)

Makes one take a thoughtful look inside themselves. Opens up one to the deeper meaning and understanding of how our own thoughts, feelings etc. can control our lives and how we can change and control them for a more peaceful life. I needed very much to listen to this to bring me back to where I needed to be. I will listen to it again,

Bringing hope to a damaged world view

(4.5 stars)

Really good information to learn how to purify ones heart. It outlines ways in which one can practice love, compassion and sympathy toward others. Help with reducing hypocritical behavior, guarding the mind against thoughts that harm oneself an others. The author demonstrates how good qualities bring about a good life and which vices bring about a bad one.

great book

Gabriel, please read this book

(3.5 stars)

My favourite audiobook is The Heavenly Life by James Allen, read by Gabriel. Gabriel is very pleasant to listen to, and it would be so appreciated if he could also read this book. I would be thrilled if he could read other James Allen books as well. Thank you for the consideration.
