The Seat of the Soul tells us that humans are immortal souls first and physical beings second, and that once we become conscious of this transformation, we will align our personality with our soul and we will stimulate our spiritual growth and become better people in the process.
Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species that pursues external power which is based upon the perceptions of the five senses into a species that pursues authentic power, which is based upon the perceptions and values of the spirit.
The pursuit of external power has produced our survival-of-the-fittest understanding of evolution, generated conflict between lovers, communities, and superpowers, and brought us to the edge of destruction. Reaching authentic power can only be achieved by accepting the limitation of our five senses, and will naturally awake and enlighten us to reach peace and harmony.
