It is because a new species is being born. The Seat of the Soul is about this birth. This new species longs for harmony, cooperation, sharing,...more

One way to do this is to notice whether your inner responses are coming from a place of fear, or a place of love. The ego is always insecure, comparing, fearful of losing its position - so it operates from a place of fear. The soul is always wanting joy, happiness, peace.
I hope this helps? Feel free to ask if you have more questions!(less)

The Seat of the Soul was very disappointing and I abandoned it after a couple of chapters and some fast skimming. As expected, Zukav starts by talking about biological evolution, but, unexpectedly, he completely misunderstands it, to the point that what he does is resurrect the idea of the chain of being, an idea which was old and hoary even by Elizabethan times (see E. M. W. Tillyard´s marvellous chapter in The Elizabethan World Picture) and which has nothing to do with evolution as expounded by Darwin. As far as I could tell, Zukav only goes downhill from them on.
If you have any feel or respect for science, steer well clear of this book. If you want to dip into an interesting perspective on scientific knowledge and the teachings of Eastern and Western religion and philosophy, you´d be much better off reading Alan W. Watts.

On top of that, the author doesn't give any rhyme or reason why he thinks these things. I could get past that, if the majority of what he suggested resonated with me, but some of it just seemed so arbitrary.
