The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice

( 2 )

Overview

The Mind of the Soul describes with easy-to-read text and practical exercises how each moment in life presents a choice: whether to persist in old, limited patterns or to experiment with the unbounded, liberating potential ahead. Whether your choices are large-concerning work, marriage, parenting, divorce-or appear small, such as whether to show annoyance when angry, they carry consequences for which you must assume responsibility. The Mind of the Soul shows you how, in every situation, one choice among the many ...

People make hundreds of choices every day--both large and small--yet most individuals feel they have little control over their own lives.

They explain how changing our decision-making can help us avoid self-defeating patterns of thought and action--and help us take control of our lives by creating authentic, positive power.

Overview

The Mind of the Soul describes with easy-to-read text and practical exercises how each moment in life presents a choice: whether to persist in old, limited patterns or to experiment with the unbounded, liberating potential ahead. Whether your choices are large-concerning work, marriage, parenting, divorce-or appear small, such as whether to show annoyance when angry, they carry consequences for which you must assume responsibility. The Mind of the Soul shows you how, in every situation, one choice among the many that present themselves is the optimal choice-to create harmony, cooperation, or reverence for life. This special book offers the freedom to experiment with your life, to see what does or doesn't work for you, to change yourself instead of blaming others-in short, to open your heart and develop authentic power.

With the same sensitivity that made The Heart of the Soul: Emotional Awareness so meaningful, Zukav and Francis guide you, step by step, in developing the ability to break free of the unconscious choices that hold you back and limit your fulfillment in life.

Chapter One

Welcome

This book can dramatically change your life by showing you how to take responsibility for the choices you make and break free from the illusion that you are a victim of your circumstances.

Everyone knows that when you make a choice, that choice changes your experience. When you take a new job, move to a new city, or get married or divorced, your experience changes. That is obvious, but other choices that you hardly think about make differences in your life, too. For example, when you shout because you are angry, that is a choice, even if you do not think of it as such. Even if you assume that it is natural to shout when you are angry, that is still a choice. When you shout, you create particular consequences - people avoid you or start arguments with you. When you do not, even though you are angry, different things happen.

All of your choices create consequences, whether or not you think about your choice and even whether or not you are aware of making a choice. When you make a choice, you create consequences for yourself. That is why it is important to understand that you are always making choices, and to become aware of what you are choosing. If you do not make this effort, you will continue to encounter the consequences, and they may not be the ones you would want.

This book is about the power of choice and how to use it wisely. It gives you the tools you need to make responsible choices, and supports you experientially and in practical ways so that you can make responsible choices long after you have finished reading it. Our intention is to give you the most well-rounded, grounded, and practical introduction to responsible choice that we can.

This book is designed to be used, not merely read. The exercises, in particular, are important. Without them, you will still be able to understand the concepts, but they will not be nearly as useful. You will know more, but unless you actually choose responsibly, you will not change.

To assist in the process of meaningful change, we have also created a special Self-Empowerment Journal to accompany this book. It will help you focus your thoughts, emotions, and insights as you read and as you apply the exercises to your life. Of course, you can still benefit greatly from The Mind of the Soul without buying the companion Journal, but if you do not, we ask you to buy a notebook that you like to look at, hold, and write in, and record your discoveries after each exercise. Create your own exercises and write them, too - in whatever journal you choose. Most of all, experiment with what you learn and observe the results in your own life.

Last, we ask you not to accept anything in our book on faith, but to read it with an open mind and an open heart. If something we say strikes you as valuable, apply it to your life and see what happens. If you feel it does not apply to you, let it go.

Make your own choices.

Love, Gary and Linda

    Excellent Book!

    I really enjoyed this book. It's a positive and constructive outlook on life and all the choices we make every day. I have learned a lot about myself by applying the strategies this book offers. If you are an open-minded person...this can only improve who you are or who you want to be.

    Insightful!

    Gary Zukav and Linda Francis contend, perhaps reasonably, that a decision and an opportunity confront you every instant. You can choose to remain bogged down in a rut of habit and fear, or to break loose and create a boundless new future. This book ¿ the newest in their ¿Seat of the Soul¿ series, which the authors seem to assume you have read ¿ urges you to liberate yourself from the burden of the past, which they maintain really need be no burden. Fear not, hate not, resent not. Instead, chose harmonious cooperation, love, freedom, reverence and peace, choices that lead to true happiness. The authors maintain that you truly are free to choose, and exhort you to take responsibility for your choices. Abundant hypothetical examples, personal anecdotes and exercises provide the intellectual foundation, such as it is, for their New Age-flavored advice. We choose to believe that people who appreciate confident self-help counsel will find much here to savor. Skeptics, who may find that so many upbeat pronouncements give them the jitters, have made alternate choices and need not apply.
