Thoughts from the Heart of the Soul - Gary Zukav

Linda

The longest journey you will make is from your head to your heart. We are all on this journey.

Being aware of your emotions means being aware of pain. The only alternative is to mask it.

When you act with an empowered heart, you are free from compulsions, fixations, obsessions, and addictions.

Billions of humans live in poverty and suffer hunger, oppression, and brutality. Changing these circumstances requires the heart.

Spiritual growth is replacing survival as the central objective of the human experience.

Since our origin as a species, the need to feel safe, valuable, and loved has focused our attention outward. Now we are learning to look inside to find the roots of our insecurities, and to pull them out.

A new human species is being born that looks at the external world of things, interactions, and experiences as a mirror that reflects an internal world of intentions, emotions, and thoughts.

Authentic power is the alignment of your personality with your soul. It is being fully engaged in the present moment. You cannot align your personality with your soul without becoming conscious of your emotions.

The creation of authentic power confronts you with the unhealthiest parts of yourself—the parts that blame, criticize, judge, resent, envy, and hate others, yourself, and the Universe. These are the parts that must be acknowledged in order to change them.

An authentically empowered personality is so powerful that the idea of showing power through force is not even part of his or her consciousness.

We are all continually processing energy that flows through us. We experience those processes as emotions.

Energy continually flows into the top of your head, moves downward through your torso, and then returns to where it came from. The energy that flows through you is always pure and wholesome.

You cannot grow spiritually without learning how to detach from your emotions and understand them as products of the way energy is processed in your own unique energy processing system.

Each emotion is a signal from your soul. When you ignore or repress emotions, you lose important information.

Your emotions are your best friends because they do not leave you. They bring to your attention what you need to know.

Your emotional landscape is as unique as your body, your aptitudes, and your interests.

Emotions are classes in the Earth school. Some classes are about fear, and some are about love. The Universe is your tutor, and your classroom is your life. The main course in the Earth school, Authentic Power, is the same for everyone, but different students need different courses in order to complete it.

You cannot change all of the people that make you angry, sad, or jealous, but you can change yourself. You begin that process by looking inward.

    Extracts from the bestseller, "The Heart of the Soul," by Gary Zukav and Linda Francis. Each page is about six lines or less which you can read in a few seconds.

    Shucks. I am having a hard time believing this tripe is by the same guy who wrote THE DANCING WU LI MASTERS. Zukav was almost prescient with his insights and final predictions in DANCING. SEAT is all hot air. There are not many books I toss, but I don't think I want to offer the tacit approval a place on my bookshelf offers.

    This is a fantastic book, one of my all-time favorites. If I had to put my spiritual beliefs into writing, this comes very close to what I would hope to write. Zukav talks about the transformation the human race is going through to become spiritual beings. A beautiful book, one I highly recommend.

    Good stuff in here to make your brain work hard. Open the book with an open mind for best results!

    I feel pretty ambiguous about this book. On the one hand, the author presents a "formula" for living that I largely agree with: the positive aspects of life flow from love, the negative flow from fear. If you can let go of fear, a lot of personal problems just disappear. If we could do that as a society, it would go a long way toward making everything better.

    On the other hand, he presents a lot of very specific information about the mechanics of how a soul moves and advances through the levels of enlightenment. A lot of this sounds like just another new age pseudo religion.

    If you can take the basic principles he is expounding, without getting wrapped up in the quasi-religious stuff, then I think its worth the time.

    I started this but just couldn't get through it. I do not agree with his ideas and what he's proposing, and it wasn't interesting enough to keep me reading. I enjoy reading alternate ideas, but this just wasn't done well enough.

    An excellent book for self-reflecting, healing, and positive actions. Readers can take what Mr. Zukav writes as truths (which I believe is his intention) or view it as a more metaphorical structure in which to view their life. I personally believe there is truth in this work. In The Seat of the Soul, Mr. Zukav paints a beautiful picture of our most profound center of who we are...the Soul and the context/process of which it exists. I found his engaging and descriptive narrative very helpful and hopeful in dealing with my own journey of life. His work is prescriptive, in that the ideas put fourth can be used to move toward more positive outcomes in ones life. My reading of "The Seat of the Soul" also guided me in putting episodes of my life into a more favorable and hopeful structure where growth and development to more positive states are possible. This book of New Age ideas can be a wonderful augmentation to other theological belief structures that readers may have. If you are open and looking for more meaning in your life I highly recommend this work. I plan to read others he has written.

    The sole purpose of this book seems to be to set him up as a guru to sell his workshops. He constantly makes broad unsupported universal statements and asserts things without evidence. I felt quite manipulated and just wanted him to stop including me in his royal "we". He got off on the wrong foot with me on the first chapter "Evolution". Everything he says about scientific evolution is wrong. His point is that "our" beliefs about evolution are wrong. Well, *his* beliefs about evolution certainly are wrong. I'm just glad they aren't *my* beliefs. Disproving a argument that no one is making is called a "straw man" fallacy. I tried to keep reading but I just couldn't get past chapter five. You don't have to eat a whole dish to know if it is putrid, once you have had a bite of it. I tried several bites before I could no longer stomach his self-important manipulative horse crap.

    To quote the author, "we have much to do together. Let us do it in wisdom and love and joy. Let us make this the human experience." Reflections on science, psychology, and spirituality. An inspiring read.
  • (4/5)
    Found some sections a bit repetitive but still enjoyed it and benefited from it. "When you feel that you are in a pattern of wanting what you do not have instead of what you do have, of seeing the grass in the other pasture as greener because it is in the other pasture, confront it. Challenge it each time that it come up by literally realizing that when it comes up you are not in the present moment, you are not engaged in your present energy dynamic, but rather, you are letting energy leak to a future that does not exist>"

    Helps to put things in life in perspective. Great.
