Overview

The words of Sai Baba, "God equals man minus ego," are echoed by Dr. Joshua David Stone in his seminal work, Soul Psychology. A veteran transpersonal psychologist and family counselor, Dr. Stone teaches us how our entire understanding of ourselves and others is completely changed when we integrate our soul into the way we live our lives. Based on eighteen years of Dr. Stone's practice, this book is not a psychological approach to spirituality. It is rather a spiritual approach to the psychology of everyday living.

At the heart of Soul Psychology is emotional healing through the dismantling of the "negative ego," a psychological cancer that prevents us from acting in accordance with our soul's true nature and purpose. This negative energy drives us to find our security outside of ourselves; whereas the only true security is one that is grounded in having a right relationship with self and a right relationship with the Divine. To guide us onto this path of spiritual ascension, Soul Psychology offers a stimulating new viewpoint that expands the boundaries of traditional spiritual practice, providing a wealth of accessible and powerful meditations and exercises, including

- The six-step process for healing and spiritualizing emotions
- The spiritual science of the seven rays and the twenty-two chakras
- Methods for clearing negative psychic energies that inhibit soul growth
- The one hundred most common pitfalls and traps on the spiritual path

    Excellent and well described connections between our human incarnation and our soul.

    This is an amazing book that provides in depth information about our soul levels and our human/soul connection. He has writtine a number of excellent books. I recommend this as a start into our connections to our soul.

    Positive Review

    Unlike the other rewiews on this book I found it to be helpful and really easy reading. It helped me to look at my internal mental mechanism in a totally different way. I would recommend this book to some one who wants to understand the psychology of the soul.

    Ego as the Enemy

    In this book J Stone presents a conflict based view of the ego. As such the ego is seen to be the enemy. Stone's model of the negative ego, is dualistic and polarizing, and can only foster further conflict within the self. However, in contrast to Stone, where consciousness is seen to also focus on the internal senses and reality, and with the awareness of the multidimensional nature of reality and of the self - the ego is, rather, perceived as one (quite helpful) aspect of consciousness. As such, a non-conflict view of the ego perceives it as a 'mechanism' ( and a quite useful one) whereby consciousness is able to focus on the external senses and external reality (i.e the world). Damning the ego feeds the illusion of conflict at the very core of one's self. This illusion may feel true due to information primarily perceived and cognized via the external senses - but this is not the 'fault' of the ego. In non-dualistic terms - this sense of conflict is a 'mirage' of pure illusion. The goal of this book is to foster a right relationship with self and the divine - but this is impossible where conflict is set up as the framework within the psyche (Gk=soul).
