I don’t remember exactly when I went to a retreat in California with Gary Zukav and his wife Linda. Around 2002? I don’t remember for sure. I must have read his first book, The Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics, later on. Time is illusive when I think about this journey on the earth plane. This thought just led me to look at my transits during that time period and sure enough, spacey Neptune, was closing in on my Sun while Uranus was squaring Jupiter. I was ready for a turning point, ready to dissolve further onto what I was calling my spiritual path. Whew, 2002 and 2003 were really out of this world… or I was. Memories… enough now.
Now I feel every breath, every movement, every mundane act and simply being alive in this body the spiritual path. There isn’t a choice— for any of us. We’re all in it together whether consciously practicing or not.
This book jumped out at me as I was thinking about what pick for this month. It’s almost 30 years old. The 25th Anniversary book came out with a Study Guide in 2014. The book and the retreat definitely gave me something to think about and commit to, which had to do with Authenticity. Living an authentic life.
So why read this book (if you’re looking for a read)? Because it will lead you closer to knowing the truth of who you are. There are many books, many authors, many teachers. One of my personal beliefs is: Quality of life can instantly improve when just the right string of words impact us at just the right time— similar to the divine timing of astrology. That’s the case for me anyway. Probably because it is a strong belief for me. Plus, any book that has a first chapter titled Evolution is one that suits this website.Share, please and thank you.
