Gary Zukav's American Book Award-winning The Dancing Wu Li Masters masterfully introduces the layman to quantum and particle physics, as well as Einstein's relativity theories. With a similar dose of amiable, easy-to-understand prose, Zukav guides readers into the spiritual realm in his bestselling The Seat of the Soul.
Zukav questions the Western model of the soul, asserting that the human species is in the midst of a great transformation, evolving from a species that pursues power based upon the perceptions of the five senses--"external power"--to one that pursues power based upon perceptions of the soul--"authentic power". He believes that humans are immortal souls first, physical beings second, and that once we become conscious of this transformation--once we align our personalities with our soul--we will stimulate our spiritual growth and become better people in the process. This insightful, lucid synthesis of modern psychology and new-age ideas has been described as the "physics of the soul". Who better to explain such heady concepts than Gary Zukav? --Ali Perry-Gallagher --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"A very important book" (Paulo Coelho, author of The Alchemist)
"The Seat of the Soul changed the way I see myself. It changed the way I view the world" (Oprah Winfrey)
"A remarkable treatment of thought, evolution, and reincarnation" (Library Journal)
"Filled with wisdom, and written in a beautifully simple, almost poetic style, The Seat of the Soul is a book to be savored" (Brian Weiss, Chairman of Psychiatry, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Miami, and author of Many Lives, Many Masters)
"A readable, thought-provoking [work] on how our perceptions must change dramatically if we are to survive" (Library Journal) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Top Customer Reviews
This book is written in simple language to speak to a mass audience about something we all wonder about: the realm of Spirit. No society in our brief human history has been so backward that it ignored the element of Spirit. We have always sought to define God.
In a way, this is arrogance. We seek to name and define the Divine, which is infinitely beyond our grasp. At the same time, Zukav uses his simple and broad definitions to describe what we are all looking for, no matter what our spiritual disciplines. If you hate this writing, you are being defensive of your own religious practices, grounded partially in contemplation of the Divine and partially in control of the masses.
If you read this book with open mind and heart, you will find new truth. The truth cannot be faked. The soul cannot be cheated. Truth is. If you look at any moment in your life, ask yourself three questions: 1) Where am I? 2) Where am I? 3) How can I be better? The answers are deceptively simple: 1) I am here. 2) It is now. 3) For the answer here, you must ask your higher self for guidance. The higher self never denies an answer.
