People make hundreds of choices every day, yet most individuals feel they have little control over their own lives. Now Gary Zukav, author of the monumental bestseller The Seat of the Soul, joins
his spiritual partner, Linda Francis, in a revolutionary look at the power of choice and how to use it wisely. 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.
Whether your choices are large ones -- concerning work, marriage, parenting, or divorce -- or smaller day-to-day choices, such as shouting or showing annoyance when you are angry, they carry consequences for which you must assume responsibility. You will discover that in any situation one choice among the many that present themselves to you is the optimal choice -- to create harmony, cooperation, sharing, or reverence for life. When you make this choice, you gain the freedom to experiment with your life, learn to change yourself instead of blaming others, open your heart, and develop authentic power.
The Mind of the Soul is packed with specific, and practical exercises that make you a participant in the process of responsible choice. The discoveries you make here will become a permanent part of your life.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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.
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.
