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.

Commentaires

"[Zukav's] high-minded synthesis is something more than old wine in a new bottle." ( Publishers Weekly)

Be ready for a within experience !

This book is a blessing ! I wanted to read it a few years ago but 2020 seems to be the perfect timing. The Seat of the Soul is a great within experience, thanks M. ZUKAV

Doctrine plutôt que sagesse

J’ai acheté ce livre parce que je suis fan d’Oprah et j’ai été contente avec ses propositions souvent antérieurement. Ai-je accrue mes connaissances? – Non. Ai-je appris de nouvelles choses? – Non plus. Ce livre n’est pas un livre de sagesse; Zukav décrit une doctrine où l’on peut clairement voire ses racines dans la anthropocentrique culture chrétienne, mélangé avec sa propre imagination fantastique. Il manque des explications sur la base de ses idées que ce soit. Animals have a group soul. Dolphins are dying because they are exhausted and have decided collectively through their group consciousness to abandon the Earth. – Une belle déclaration pour justifier le comportement arrogant de l'homme sur la planète et la destruction du reste du monde vivant. Très inquiétant!!

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.

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!

Some great wisdom mixed with "law of attraction"

There's some great wisdom here mixed with boilerplate "law of attraction" type "new thought". At the same time the author makes too much effort put this forth as a new "bible", as the ultimate truth. "Law of attraction" is useless, even destructive while failing to address and point toward the answer to the ultimate question: who/what is doing the attracting and who/what is aware of it all? In fact, I'd say 60 to 70% or so of the book should have been devoted to this but it was only glanced. Besides one or two chapters, the rest is just restating "law of attraction" in various ways.

....that part about Dolphin souls reincarnated?

Somewhere at the beginning was a chapter on INTENTIONS and the splintered personality; that section was good.

However, to get there...you had to listen to A Lot of monotone repetitive speech about Karma and reincarnation. The basis of which is the same you would find on wikipedia: souls are reincarnated to fulfill their purpose or unfinished business from past lives. Can be hard to swallow, but the suggestions from the intention chapter are good and food for thought.

I listened a little more and the reincarnation speech came back three-fold. Then he started talking about dophins' purpose and what they want out of life (seriously)....how does he know? Did he speak to one? Maya and Oprah - what the heck?

I'm so lost I can't go back and search for meaning in his dribble. Cheers to the people that are so moved by the entire book but most of it reads like the rantings of a teenager on an acid trip that is expelling his/her enlightenments.

I got through 5 hours. I can't do anymore. RETURNING.
