Monthly Book Review: The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav

So during January, I read through the Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav. I’m going to be very blunt/honest right off the bat. One: I should’ve listened to this, instead of read it; two: this shouldn’t have been the one to start my year. But oh whale (pun…haha), too late, and I read it, and it was my first book of the year.

I do want to say this though, as a follow up right after that: It’s a good read. Just for myself, and where I was at the time, I had a LOT of resistance to read this book. I wanted to finish this book by the last Wednesday of the month. Did I finish this book by the last Wednesday of the month? No. But I did finish it in January. And that is the main goal. A book a month, and I read this book within my deadline.

Now you’re wondering my comments on this book. Well, here we go, because it’s very simple.

Unfortunately this is not a book where I can spoil a lot (or withhold a lot, to make it more interesting). The Seat of the Soul is a very straight-forward book, and it took me awhile to get into it. Most of it, I believe, was my resistance to reading it for whatever reason.

There’s several good points in the book that are worth noting, especially the farther you dive into the book. The concept of the personality versus the soul is a good one, where things like a split personality, and other issues with the personality are where the soul needs to learn, be in tune with, and mend, while the soul and personality have different aspects to them.

Think of personality, consciousness, and the soul as a multi-layered cake. Yes, I just thought of that myself. The higher you get on the cake, the closer you get to the sweetness of the soul, and higher consciousness.

My suggestion is to read this (or really grab the audio version), and see for yourself, what you can pull from it. Let me know if you’ve read it, and what you’ve gotten from it. Or, after you read/listen to it, tell me what you think!
