Zukav, the author acclaimed for books such as The Dancing Wu Li Masters and The Seat of The Soul, brings us a paradigm-shifting book about relationships. This book is not just about intimate partner relationships, but about principles that apply to all relationships. It examines how humanity appears to be facing a shift from 5-sensory perception to multi-sensory perception (perception beyond the physical senses). According to Zukav, this shift provides an opportunity for us to base our relationships on developing spiritually - supporting one another's spiritual growth and building internal power rather than seeking external power.

In this conceptualization, Zukav discusses how fear-based aspects of ourselves constantly seek external power to pursue an illusion of security. The love-fear dichotomy is seen at the heart of this challenge. Zukav points out how all the institutions of our existing society are geared toward pursuit of external power (that includes traditional ideas of marriage) - something which will theoretically fall away as humanity evolves in the next couple of generations.

This book presents clear ideas and guidelines for building spiritual partnerships - which involves facing fears, building self-awareness, letting go of judgments, having integrity, and having compassion for oneself and others. The book is excellent in offering an outline of the hows and whys of spiritual partnerships. Zukav has a smooth, engaging style of writing that will draw in readers to embrace what he is teaching. These teachings will definitely help foster healthier relationships and spiritual development.

Gary Zukav's new book introduces the concept that relationships are mostly about you and your fears. He divides the relationship world into two types of people. The first is what he calls, Five Sensory people. They look for the causes of suffering outside of themselves, "in their failed relationships, illnesses, betrayals and bad luck." The second type which he says we all have to become at some point is the Multi-sensory. They are pursuing what he calls authentic power which is defined as power over themselves and their many moods and emotions. They are looking to find the roots of their needs and emotions rather than blaming their partner, life or circumstance for not meeting them. They also look at their defenses, which can take the form of feelings of superiority, righteousness and even inferiority. They consciously decide how to respond in any give situation.

According to Zukav, when spiritual partners meet in the Multi-sensory context, they value honesty, self analysis and mutual exploration even when this sharing might cause conflict or even separation. He says that most people try to find stasis in a relationship and accept limitations and compromises in order to preserve security. They project needs onto others and then give them the power to make them feel better instead of fully understanding or growing beyond the need itself.

Zukav's multi-sensory person is someone who assumes personal responsibility for meeting most of their own needs, thus making a partnership less binding. The partner is no longer seen as the all important source of our happiness and security. Here the loving environment is sustained to support personal growth.

This book is about a new kind or relationship, it goes beyond the old roles in marriage of a provider and homemaker, it is more than friendship, it is even more valuable than traditional family relationships. A Spiritual partnership is between equals to accomplish spiritual growth. It serves a different purpose of all the traditional forms of relationships. The partners are together in order to help one another grow spiritually instead of enhance their physical comfort and safety. Spiritual partnerships are relationships that more spiritually receptive people use to create authentic power with in themselves. Their goal is to share spiritual growth with each other. They allow each other to see the emotional armor they wear because of irritability, righteosuness, superiority, and inferiority that is caused because of inner fear, and remove it. They allow each other to lay down their weapons of anger, jealousy, and vengeance because of love. Spiritual partners are on a quest for authentic power that comes from with in as love over takes fear as the underlying motivation in their mutual lives. These relationships do not seek external power, they seek to change themselves. They trust one another enough to explore their fear and love together. They are brave enough to probe the depths of intimacy. Their path is one where they do not try to solve one anothers problems, encourage bad bahavior, or enable destructive behavior. They are their to ask the right questions, search for the underlying fear in their partner, listen with their heart, and love unconditionally. Spiritual partners realize that their problems are internal not external. Another marriage, more money, alcohol, drugs, sex, or a better job is not the solution to their problems.Read more ›
