Description

With the same extraordinary skill that he used to demystify scientific abstraction and the new physics, Gary Zukav, the award-winning author of The Dancing Wu Li Masters, here takes us on a brilliant and penetrating exploration of the new phase of evolution we have now entered.

With lucidity and elegance, Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species that pursues power based upon the perceptions of the five senses, external power, into a species that pursues authentic power, power that is based upon the perceptions and values of the spirit. He shows how the pursuit of external power has produced our survival-of-the-fittest understanding of evolution, generated conflict between lovers, communities, and superpowers, and brought us to the edge of destruction.

Using his scientist's eye and philosopher's heart, Zukav shows how infusing the activities of life with reverence, compassion, and trust makes them come alive with meaning and purpose. He illustrates how the emerging values of the spirit are changing marriages into spiritual partnerships, psychology into spiritual psychology, and transforming our everyday lives. The Seat of the Soul describes the remarkable journey to the spirit that each of us is on.

A True Spiritual Classic

Listening to Gary Zukav calmly explaining his views on spirituality, you would never guess that he was once a Green Beret serving in Vietnam and, by his own confession, a former sex addict (listen to his very honest Miboso interview at his website, www.zukav.com). And yet here is a man who realized that facing enemies out in the jungles of Vietnam and sleeping around with women were actually ways to avoid facing his inner enemies of fear and insecurity. Here is a man who changed from an angry soldier trained to kill into a quiet, gentle human being trained to love. Anyone who has seen him on Oprah (where he was introduced to most of us) has witnessed his gentleness and humility.

Gary's personal journey is an example of what he believes humanity is experiencing as a whole: we are beginning to realize that controlling other people and outer circumstances cannot bring us true happiness and fulfillment. We are also beginning to acknowledge that dimensions of reality beyond the five senses exist, and that we interact with those dimensions. To sum up, we are transforming from five-sensory humans into multi-sensory humans. "The Seat of the Soul" is a personal guide to that transformation.

A summary might go like this: your soul picks aspects of itself that desire growth and healing, and then incarnates into a physical form having those aspects. You then draw to yourself people and experiences that awaken the unhealed parts of you and provide opportunities to consciously change your choices. When you stop making choices from fear and instead choose to act in love and trust, you experience healing and growth on your spiritual path. Paying attention to your emotions and your intuitions is very important in this process, as well as honest analysis of your intentions in every situation. And you always have help available in the form of nonphysical guides and teachers.

The book is well-written, and I found Mr. Zukav's reading to be perfect: calm and clear.

This book will bring about a paradigm shift in you

This book was amazing. I have yet to do the study guide although I've listened to it and plan to print the study guide out. The book itself though is DEEP!! You really have to hit pause and think about the things that are being said. This book is one of those that can change your life and leave a lasting impression on all the people who know you.

Self-help in a 6 hour lecture

What made the experience of listening to The Seat of the Soul the most enjoyable?

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

His tone and peacefull, not forceful method of teaching.

Have you listened to any of Gary Zukav’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I broke this reading into 6 one hour nights (one week) to absorb and process while not overloading at one setting and losing the points that were made.

Might be worth reading but not listening to.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Perhaps if you have read the book and want a refresher this might be of interest.

What was most disappointing about Gary Zukav’s story?

His assumptions, stated as fact. Much of what he reports is pure conjecture. Essentially he has drawn intellectual conclusions about matters which cannot be known intellectually. If you want something to believe in this might give it to you. If you want Truth, move on.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

James Earl Jones

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None come to mind.

Any additional comments?

I found this extremely hard to listen to. It did not keep my interest and I am interested in this area of study.

So much to learn

I am listening again to catch more valuable information. Well written so it is much easier to understand.

Would you listen to The Seat of the Soul again? Why?

Learned so much

When I first started the book i got to about half of it and loved it, then got a little tired of it and couldn't understand very much, maybe was not the right time, few months passed and then tried it again, just finished it and loved it, now, I was ready for the lesson!!
You have to find the right moment for it! I would listen to it again for sure and keep learning more!
The only thing that didn't like is that the last chapters he reminds you every time to go to his web page for exercises but after the 3rd time it gets annoying!

Struggled to Grasp

I completely agree with the Law of Atttaction, heart connection, and vibrational energy; however, I struggled to grasp the concepts of karma from past lives, let alone past lives. I really wanted to like this book, but the farther along I got in this audio reading, the more challenged I felt in comprehending it.

mind blowing experience

es ist durchaus möglich, dass dieses Buch sich lebensverändernd auswirkt auf den ein oder anderen Leser. ich bin bestimmt nicht mehr die Selbe wie zuvor.
