The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav

Summary

  1. The greats, mystics, reach for something greater than what they can express directly through their work. What motivates them, motivates us. It is a force, the next step in our evolution is to come into clearer contact with that force

Key Takeaways

  1. Multi-Sensory vs. 5 Sensory
    1. 5 sensory point of view sees a world of fear and power. This results from seeing power as external. processes only the knowledge that it gathers and substantiates it through its five senses. The multisensory personality acquires knowledge through its intuition, and, in processing that knowledge, aligns itself, step by step, with its soul. The conscious path to authentic power requires recognition of the nonphysical dimensions of the human being, of the soul, and a growing knowledge of what the soul is and what it wants
    2. Multi-Sensory evolving towards authentic power, a love which does not judge what it encounters, a power that loves life in every form that appears. When we align thoughts, emotions, and actions with the highest part of ourselves, we are filled with enthusiasm, purpose, and meaning. Life is rich and full. We have no thoughts of bitterness. Authentic power cannot be bought, inherited, or hoarded. An authentically powered person cannot make anyone or anything a victim. An authentically powered person is one who is so strong, so empowered, that the idea of using force against another is not a part of his or her consciousness. 
    3. As a personality becomes multisensory, its intuitions – its hunches and subtle feelings; perceptions which are beyond the physical sense that is meant to assist you – become important to it. It senses things about itself, other people, and the situations in which it finds itself that it cannot justify on the basis of the information hat its five senses can provide. It comes to recognize intentions, and to respond to them rather than to the actions and the words that it encounters. It can recognize, for example,  warm heart beneath a harsh and angry manner, and a cold heart beneath polished and pleasing words. Know that these are messages from the soul. To the 5-sensory personality, these intuitions are simply curiosities . Strive to increase your awareness of this guidance by becoming aware of what you are feeling. Ask the Universe for guidance – sometimes you will get an answer in the form of a feeling, a memory, a thought, or something else like a dream.
    4. Your intentions create the reality you experience
    5. You cannot choose your intentinos consciously until you become conscious of each of the different aspects of yourself. If you are not conscious of each part of yourselves, you will have the experience of wanting to say, or to intend, one thing, and finding yourself saying or intending something else. You will want your life to move in one direction, and find that it is moving in another. You will desire to release a painful pattern from your experience, and see it reappear yet again. Responsible choice is the conscious road to authentic empowerment. 
    6. The Universe backs the part of you with the clearest intentions
    7. Fear / Love = Personality / Soul
    8. You are only as powerful as that for which you stand. Power is energy that is formed by the intentions of the soul. You lose power whenever you fear. True, authentic power looks like humility, forgiveness, clearing preconceptions and thinking, sees perfection everywhere, lives in love
    9. Steps for increasing intuition
      1. Must engage in emotional cleansing at all times. If you are emotionally blocked ad you cannot know what you feel, you become a negative person, and you also create a physically diseased body. By keeping your emotions clear, emotional negativity does not reside in you, and you become lighter and lighter. This opens your intuitive track because it allows you a clear sense of loving. It brings you closer to unconditional love and renders you harmless. It lightens the quality of your frequency, so to speak, and therefore the guidance that you receive is clear and unobstructed as it enters your stream.
      2. The second is a cleansing nutritional program. Being physically toxic interferes with intuition. The third is 
      3. Honor the guidance that you receive
      4. Allow yourself an orientation of openness toward your life adn the Universe, approach the questions in your life with a sense of faith and trust that there is a reason for all that happens, and that the reason is always compassionate and good
    10. Each of our acts affects us in far-reaching ways. Choose intentinos carefully based on the effects you’re wanting to produce
    11. Can literally see in new ways when on the multi-sensory path. Without an awareness of our emotions, we cannot associate the effects of anger, sadness, grief, and joy – within ourselves or others – with their causes. 
    12. The central perception of the multisensory human is that he or she is not alone. The multisensory human does not need to rely solely upon his or her own perceptions and interpretations of events for guidance, because they are in conscious communication with other, more advanced intelligences. 
  2. Karma
    1. Karma is an impersonal energy dynamic. You get from the world what you give
    2. You are the product of the karma of your soul. What is or is not learned in each lifetime is transferred into the next
    3. The soul is infinite, timeless, but flows towards wholeness
    4. Road to your soul is through your heart
    5. Struggles do not determine karma – only your reactions
  3. Temptation
    1. Temptation is the gracious way of introducing each soul to his or her power. When you are seduced or threatened by external circumstances, you lose power. They gain power over you. With each choice that you make to align yourself with the energy of your soul, you empower yourself. This is how authentic power is acquired. It is built up, step by step, choice by choice. It cannot be meditated or prayed into being. There would be no accumulation of strength inside if the choice that you make did not require discipline and intention
    2. Beneath every addiction is the perception of power as external, as the ability to control and use the environment or others, beneath every addiction is an issue of power. The journey to wholeness requires that you look honestly, openly, and with courage into yourself, into the dynamics that lie behind what you feel, what you perceive, what you value, and how you act. It is a journey through your defenses and beyond so that you can experience consciously the nature of your personality, face what it has produced in your life, and choose to change that. 
    3. By the magnitude of the costs of your addiction you can measure the importance of healing it to your soul, and the strength of your own inner intention to do that 
  4. Trust
    1. When the deepest part of you becomes engaged in what you are doing, when your activities and actions become gratifying and purposeful, when what you do serves both yourselves and others, when you do not tire within but seek the sweet satisfaction of your life and your work, you are doing what you were meant to be doing. The personality that is engaged in the work of its soul is buoyant. It is not burdened with negativity. It dose not fear. It experiences purposefulness and meaning. It delights in its work and in others. It is fulfilled and fulfilling
    2. Let go of what you think is just reward. Let go. Trust. Create. Be who you are. The rest is up tot he nonphysical Teachers and the Universe
    3. Trust allows you to give. Giving is abundant. As you give so it shall be given to you. If you give with judgment, limitation, and stinginess, that is what you will create in your life – judgement, limitation, and stinginess. What you say to others shall be done exactly unto you. That is the law of karma, and how you love and serve others shall be done exactly unto you. If you radiate love and compassion, you do receive it. If you radiate fear and suspicion and sense of wishing to keep people at arm’s length, then negativity comes to you because that is what you are asking for. Trust allows the experience of bliss
  5. Other
    1. Must get rid of judgment – this brings forth understanding and compassion. It allows you to experience unobstructed flow of the intelligence, radiance, and love of the Universe of which our physical reality is a part. Non-judgmental justice flows naturally from understanding the soul and how it evolves. 
    2. Reverence = contact with the essence, all of life is of value
    3. Must engage with hate compassionately. The remedy of an absence is a presence. Understanding evil as the absence of Light does not require you to become passive, or to disregard evil actions or evil behavior
    4. Truth is that which does not contaminate you, but empowers you
    5. Every thought and decision either moves you toward your personality or your soul
    6. When you become a whole personality, your intentions become laser-like, focused and effective. 
    7. Clarity = perception of wisdom
    8. Choose to see / focus on / encourage people’s strengths. When you are compassionate with yourself and others, your world becomes compassionate. You draw to yourself other souls of like frequency, and with them you create, through your intentinos and your actions and your interactions, a compassionate world. As you draw to yourself the highest frequency currents of each situation, you radiate that frequency of consciousness, and change the situation. You become more and more consciously a being of light. 
    9. Your evolution impacts and affects everyone and everything around you
    10. When you admit to a spiritual partnership with another human being, you bring the energy of the archetype of spiritual partnership into the physical arena. You begin to form and to live by the values, perceptions, and actions that reflect equality with your partner and a commitment to his or her spiritual development and your own. You begin to set aside the wants of your personality in order to accommodate the needs of your partner’s spiritual growth, and in doing that, you grow yourself. That is how spiritual partnerships work
    11. Be mindful of how you feel and if negative, why, the root cause

What I got out of it

  1. Multi-sensory personality pays much more attention to intuition and intention, focus on others and in entering spiritual partnerships
