I just finished the surrender experiment and am partway through the untethered soul. It is very similar to my approach, practices, and philosophy with life.

The whole idea of letting life guide you is working for me.

Part of the book seems to imply that the universe is directing if you let it. I believe that it is our inner-selves doing the directing. But, we are all connected through energy thus tied into the universe.

Sorry for the side tangent, but some supplemental material to Singer's work I've found helpful (and I'm only a few chapters in) is the work by David R. Hawkins...

Power vs. Force: Hawkins M.D. Ph.D, David R.: 9781401945077: Amazon.com: Books

I read it a few years ago. I remember he gave some very questionable pseudo-scientific advice and that makes me skeptical of it.

Example:

His scale of consciousness and measuring it with "muscle testing" is weird to say the least.

Yeah, I think he mentioned this in one of his talks somewhere. "Universe" / "Life" can also be thought of as "intuition", which gets stronger the more the consciousness expands. I'm guessing he said it like this as most people would confuse intuition with the heart/mind and mess it up. He did a lot of deep meditation so his is probably very developed, but what he's teaching with surrender and the associated release of energy would lead to the same results as well once you start distancing yourself from your thoughts / emotions.

Ok... finished both the untethered soul and the surrender experiment.

To try and answer your original question; yes and no.

He says not to worry or stress and to let life flow. Nothing about that says not to start a business. In fact, he started a mega-business.

What entrepreneurs may not agree with are his methods. His idea to let life flow and these things will come to you is a tough pill to swallow. You hear many people taking about how to focus, remain motivated, etc...

The idea of letting life flow does not mean that you do nothing and everything will come to you. The author clearly talks about his efforts in three of the business he ran.

A big part of his premise is to follow the opportunities that are presented. Even if your mind argues with you. Sometimes the presentations don't seem like they make sense. He follows through with many examples.

I myself operate with this approach and it works for me. I have many examples that are in alignment with his.

One thing he does not seem to stress is the fact that you need to move in the direction of what you want. But I do basically agree with a lot of what he says.

Michael Singer is amazing. Adding onto @MTF's post of letting go:

A huge lesson that may serve anyone reading this is that "letting go" is the result of seeing your own flaws in other people. It means to be on the same team as people in the world. You have to let go of the default paradigm of bringing other people down for your own self-gain. Everyone is NOT out to get you. When you operate in a collaborative and empathetic frame, you are never losing. Mistakes and bad experiences are catalysts for growth.

Tying in with @MJ DeMarco's book : The process of business is taking your mistakes and being proactive to use those scars as launch pads. Mistakes are lessons. Letting go is key to making the first right step toward self-awareness. At the same time, self awareness is the synergetic momentum builder to let go. Everything is connected when we observe the present moment.
