The first half of this was really good....about his personal life and experiences. The second half, not so much. It was in a question/answer format and while the information was interesting, the presentation was boring. I disagree with his definiton of suffering though. He says that suffering is pain for the purpose of spiritual growth. I agree with Cheri Huber's definition that suffering is the additional mental anguish added on top of pain and that suffering, indeed, is optional.

Thank you

Thank you for writing this book - it is a relief to know there are others out there that want authentic power through humbleness clarity forgiveness and love - pushing through violence greed and negativity so prevalent in our western world

I believe that I have more issues with the chosen format of this work, than I do with the content.
The beginning half of the book are anecdotal in nature and very brief. The second half is a series of questions and answers. I never did fully understand just exactly who was asking the questions....were they from visitors on the website, institute participants, etc.?
In the beginning I was a bit disapointed with the austere simplicity of the content, then as the book came to a close I was aware that

" A book of the Heart! This book by Gary has captured the key ingredient to a successful and fulfilling life, trusting life's processes. And to effectively do so it requires delving into soul concepts such as: love, fear, choice, responsibility, letting go, and seeking soul answers by asking meaningful questions. Gary offers a deep understanding on why situations occur in life and how to cope effectively with the inward struggle that all human beings will encounter along the journey of life. A f ...more

Re-read a few parts. Perspicacious. I presumed I would be much smarter now than when I had first read it. Am I? Do we always become wiser with age?
***
Simple and complete. Reminds that wisdom and intellect have little to talk about together. The beauty of this book is in it's originality... nothing new is said, yet all that is talked about comes form the personal experiences and lessons of the author. The beauty, thus, is in the honesty.

The kind of book you would enjoy reading a page a day when

This book delivers what it promises. Thought provoking ideas about our purpose and how best to live our lives. I didn't agree with everything like that a habit is covering up a fear or confusion etc... No because there are good habits that people practice to enrich their lives like brushing ones teeth before bedtime or reading or exercising in the morning. But all and all some good ideas here.

Yawn. Sorry, Gary, but this just a hot mess of pablum, Chicken Soup for the Earnestly Enlightened Soul, or Essays Thrown Together to Sell Another Book on Oprah, if you will. No one chooses a book to read thinking she's going to hate it (I think), so this was a disappointment. The question and answer portion of the book was worth the price of admission, though. Which was free for me because I checked this out of the library.

As I read, sometimes I would want to jump up and down shouting, "yes, yes, I know. That is so right!" and other times I had to re-read the little chapter because it was so insightful. I need to go back and read the whole thing again. I loved it. Little short thoughts. Easy to read and enjoy but very thoughtful and deep in a metaphysical zen sort of way.
Sherita Bolden
Awesome book. I love the way Gary was able to segment each story and allow me the opportunity to read and allow the words to marinate and sink in. It's a book I will keep close by and continue to read as their is so much knowledge and growth is automatic when reading it.

I read Seat of the Soul years ago but this book had more of an impact. The format is little vignettes that speak to one human foible. I like to reread a few of them from time to time. They focus on our expectations and how that expectations can harm us--very zen.

This book has a universal spirituality theme. Gary Zukav seems to have all the answers to questions such as those on karma. I liked this book a lot, but I think I should have read it more slowly. It takes a while for these kinds of deep concepts to sink in.

Gary Zukav is always so soothing & enlightening - I listen to audiobooks, so I had the benefit of listening to his voice, which really helped calm me and get into the spirit.

EARTH IS A CLASSROOM FOR THE SOUL. EVERY THING THAT HAPPENS TO US, CHOICE BY CHOICE, WE HAVE CO-CREATED AS A OPPORTUNITY TO AWAKEN TO WHO WE ARE, AND IT FEELS LIKE TRUE.
Cathy Gulkin
Pretty standard New Age claptrap... Zukav's not getting any smarter as he gets older. Or maybe he's just interested in continuing to cash in.

“When you have an emotional reaction to what you see, you are judging. That is your signal that you have an issue inside of yourself - with yourself - not with the other person. If you react to evil, look inside yourself for the very thing that so agitates you, and you will find it. If it were not there, you will simply discern, act appropriately, and move on.” 41 likes
