The Path of the Soul's Progress Towards Its Purpose

This book is unusually effective in raising spiritual issues into normal awareness, and does so in a friendly and pleasant way. Each story builds nicely on the preceding one to tickle your memory about experiences that you have had or heard about, and to raise your awareness about the questions these experiences raise. You will undoubtedly gain new insights and new ideas for addressing these issues the next time you run into them. Everything is done very gently, so you can decide for yourself what you want to believe and pay attention to. The book is both extremely deep and considerate at the same time.The theme of each story is basically built around the concept of uncovering what is in your soul, and then helping your conscious self to come into alignment with your soul. There is a beautiful analogy in one of the last stories in the book about what it is like to go from being in the desert (where life is harsh, dangerous, and full of fear) into the land of milk and honey where everything is rich, comfortable, and relaxed. When we feel like we are in the desert, we are deserting our soul's purpose. When we feel like things are wonderful, we are at one with that purpose.Professional editors tell writers not create books like this. They say that readers need to have all of the dots connected. Well, although the book is not weighted down with lots of logical support for the theses that are developed here, I found that the stories were beautifully connected together -- far better than if they were all part of one story. All but a few of the stories resonated with me. I look forward to thinking more about the ones that did not, in order to discern their intended meaning.One of the best parts of the book dealt with relationships, and the ways that two people can come into and out of harmony with each other at the spiritual level. This gave me a whole new way to think about my relations with others, one that I cherish.If you love books about spiritual issues, you must read this one. If you are not sure whether you want to read about spiritual issues, you should give this book a try. It will fit comfortably with what you would like to think about. If you think you don't want to explore spiritual issues, perhaps you should give this book a try anyway. It may at least help you better understand people who are interested in developing their spirituality.

Discovering the Soul

One cannot discuss either of these two magnificent books of Gary Zukav - Soul Stories and The Seat of the Soul without another. They are two different powerful information sources but they actually represent one profound insight first given to the readers as a philosophical outlook in The Seat of the Soul and then explained and enriched by beautiful examples as a sincere spiritual monolog in Soul Stories.What's striking is that the author of these delightful books full of love, spiritual light and true humanism, once served as a US Army Special Forces (Green Beret) officer during Vietnam War. Indeed one cannot fight evil with evil, because there is no sense in fighting darkness with darkness. Only love, only light can defeat darkness. Read these two life-changing books at the same time. What might seem unclear in The Seat of the Soul will be most probably beautifully explained in Soul Stories. But do not just read them, savor each single page, make your own conclusions, recall your own "spiritual stories" and you will never forget these books. Good Luck on your journey of Discovering the Soul.

This book changed my whole outlook on life...

I was at a mall and walked into the bookstore. I saw Gary's book Soul Stories, and something told me to buy it. So I did. (I don't buy books this way, believe me!) I read it in 2 days and then read it again over the next week, and am now on my third reading. This book touched my heart like no other. It's easy to follow and understand. It makes SO much sense! I'm buying it to give as a gift to 2 of my friends.
