Publisher's Summary

Here is a practical, useful, and easily understood exploration of the dynamic of choice and how the choices we make affect our everyday lives, for better or worse. Learning the relationship between the choices that we make and the experiences that we encounter is central to freeing ourselves from the illusion that we are victims of our circumstances.

The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice is essential for all of us who wish to take charge of our lives. Taking control means making the transformation from an individual who is constantly buffeted by the everyday realities of life, to an individual who pro-actively experiments with life to make change in a positive way. Experimenting with new perceptions instead of falling back on the same old patterns of self-definition can open up exciting and dramatically new relationships in life.

The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice presents in pragmatic terms one part of the process of creating authentic power: the alignment of the personality and the soul that was so brilliantly presented in The Seat of the Soul. It allows listeners to develop, step by step, the ability to break free of habitual, self-defeating patterns of thoughts and actions that hold them back and limit their pleasure and success in life, however that may be defined.

The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice is also a companion book to The Heart of the Soul: Emotional Awareness, which guides the listener through the process of becoming aware of everything that he or she is feeling at each moment.

This audiobook can be absorbed as a stand-alone program, or in conjunction with The Seat of the Soul, The Heart of the Soul, or both.

Depends Of Your Previous Consumption

Depends on your previous consumption of similar self-help books, you might find it illuminating or same old, same old.

I had my share of reading such books by now so I wasn't entirely blown away by the message. Still, something resonated with me here more than before and it has to do with the emphasis of how every choice we make creates a certain experience and to the extent that we want this experience or that, that's how we should act.

Incredible book

I loved this book. I read a lot of self help but the principles and insights this book provides are extraordinary and life changing. Best book since Covey's 7 Habits which I read almost 20yrs ago

Stunning! Been looking all my life for this

This book exceeded my expectations . I had been looking to understand how to handle difficult people and then as I got deeper and deeper it started to address concepts that gave me so much insight into my own character and how I first needed to heal aspects of my own personality. The solutions were the most practical and thought provoking of any self help book that I have ever read and I've read many. An insightful
and deep look about the personality of human beings without the psychoanalytical jargon that usually accompanies it.

Good content but not very superficial

This book is good for beginning to understand your decisions you make and it's consequences. It will help you understand more into real deep thinking and thinking before acting. I would like for the author to go deeper into the topics more often as it sounds like a simplified explanation each time
