Freedom's Path: The Dancing Soul is an inspiring and unusual analysis of freedom and free will from the point of view of spiritual mysticism. Invoking a serious and thought-provoking tone that still retains an easy comprehension, Dr. Phil Nuernberger uses everyday and practical terminology in order to show readers that freedom is the natural expression of the absolute free will of the spiritual self. Highlighting the universal human core within all of us, this illuminating guide explores the true merits of freedom and its origins.
"Freedom is not an academic concept, a political reality, or a religious dogma. It is an evolutionary spiritual reality, the living expression of Divinity in the material world. This spiritual force inexorably moves us, as individuals, cultures and nations, toward fulfillment." (From the introduction).
Freedom is an unstoppable force that cannot be given or taken away. An irresistible power that has its source in the spiritual dimension of every human being, freedom has been interpreted in a number of different ways throughout history. However, this enlightening new spiritual guide urges readers to explore freedom without the limitations of religious, philosophical, psychological, or scientific materialistic assumptions. Instead, Dr. Nuernberger turns to the experimental evidence of the inner spiritual sciences accumulated over thousands of years to explore the origins of free will and freedom.
"What we are looking for is not a philosophical interpretation but the experience of freedom itself - to actually experience it and to feel the power that moves us, not just to think about it." (From Chapter Two).
Written for anyone interested in spirituality, a healthy and holistic lifestyle, psychology, and the true nature of freedom, Freedom's Path is the perfect read for those looking to better themselves through spirituality and seeking to better understand what it means to be free. Based on the teachings of over forty years of tantric yoga, holistic health, and martial arts experience, Dr. Nuernberger skillfully blends his knowledge and experience to provide a practical understanding of free will and freedom. He provides an integration of Eastern and Western science, philosophy and psychology that opens both the knowledge and the methods necessary to experience the spiritual source of freedom.
"While the scientist uses the mind to systematically explore the subtleties of material reality, the spiritual scientist expands awareness to systematically explore the subtleties of the mind and being itself." (From Chapter Three)
Inspired by his personal spiritual experiences both at home and in the Himalayan Mountains, Nuernberger created Freedom's Path to further document his growing awareness of what it takes to be truly free of one's own unconscious desires, fears, and wants. Witnessing the internal transformation of himself and his students over the years, he strives to give back to the spiritual tradition that opened him to greater joy, contentment, and a greater freedom from fear or worry. A labor of love over four decades in the making, this captivating spiritual guide will change all readers who venture into it.
"It is in the spiritual dimension alone where free will and freedom exist, and our capacity to experience this dimension determines our degree and experience of freedom and free will."
(From Chapter Five).
