13 Gary Zukav quotes from Seat of the Soul

When I think of kindness, I always go back to the writings of Gary Zukav.  Below are some of my favorite quotes from Seat of the Soul. Which of these speaks to you:

  1. You receive from the world what you give to the world.
  2. A person who needs to learn trust will experience distrust in others.
  3. If you strike out without compassion against the darkness, you enter the darkness yourself.
  4. Unconditional love is straight from the soul
  5. The challenge for each human is to create. Will you create with reverence or neglect?
  6. The choice not to choose is still a choice.
  7. When it becomes necessary for a person to heal, a dramatic shift is often required.
  8. Each time you are tempted and you challenge it, you empower yourself.
  9. The desires that you feel that you cannot control are addictions. These areas are your greatest inadequacies and in most need of healing.  You are stronger than your addictions; they will only win if you let them. When your struggle with an addiction, you are dealing directly with healing your soul.
  10. You stand between the worlds of your lesser self or your full self. Choose the conscious life.
  11. Authentically empowered people are all forgiving; love is the energy of the soul.
  12. Humble spirits are free to love who they want and be who they are.
  13. Always remember to honor the guidance you receive.
