Faithfully Religionless Read Online Free - When his pursuit of happiness in Corporate America feels counterproductive, Timber Hawkeye escapes the flourescent-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 read this page-turner 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.

I read “Faithfully Religionless” in two nights…at bedtime…when for me, most books are a sedative. But Timber Hawkeye’s second book was no sedative! I had to force myself to put it down and it wouldn’t leave me alone during the day either. I couldn’t wait to get back to it. But then, when it came...

Timber Hawkeye never disappoints. I have read "Buddhist Boot Camp" several times and I refer to it often as reading it was life changing for me. This book is only 75 e-pages and it is NOT a religion bashing book. It has many references to his Boot Camp book and is a very mindful book. I love his...

The author wrote this book because he is concerned about how many churches do not come close to meeting the spiritual needs of their congregants. He is a proponent of living your faith outside of the confines of a specific religion - although if you have been lucky enough to find a religion and a...

If you want to feel connected to everything and everyone without judgement this is the book for you. Of course it challenges old ideas about God and religion : peace and love coupled with kindness is the message I got. Really good read.

I won this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway and was super excited for it. I really enjoyed the first part of the book and felt it flowed easily but was left a little disappointed with the second half. I realize it is a memoir so the story is of Timber's life but the tone and writing style see...

Beautiful as always. If you read Buddhist Boot Camp, you will recognize some of the background in this book. This book is NOT anti-God. It's about taking away the conformist attitudes that religion can bind us with and instead recognizing our own true relationship with God, Buddha, etc.
