Reviewing this book was an absolute pleasure. Chuck Hillig's insight into human fears, love and spirituality is indeed very profound. Every page overflows with wisdom that will make you smile, stop you in your tracks and uplift you. This is the perfect book to keep by your bedside, and after you have read you can refer back to it for daily ponderings and inspiration. I highly recommend this book and end with a quote from the book. ‘Your happiness depends primarily on your capacity , and your willingness, to fully express the perfect love that you are’.
--Jo Renwick, Odyssey Magazine
Chuck Hillig is one of the more innovative writers in the area of non-duality. His books have a playful quality. This doesn’t mean they should not be taken seriously. As author Jed McKenna put it, “Chuck Hillig’s books look friendly and harmless, but they are swords…and they are sharp!”
Chuck’s books have had a black dot in the middle, a hole in the middle, and he has even written a children’s book called The Magic King which I purchased for my kids a couple years ago.
As mentioned in other reviews, it is nice sometimes to have a book that you don’t necessarily have to read from cover to cover. You can keep it on a coffee table, next to your favorite reading chair, or even in the bathroom.
One thing I didn’t know about Chuck Hillig is that he has been a devotee of Ramana Maharshi since 1970. I could tell this from some of the passages he writes. But this isn’t just a regurgitation or a cut and paste of Ramana’s teachings. There is a clarity here that relates it well to the reader. As a matter of fact there are many pages that contain profound wisdom. From page 165: “To be truly free, you need to rid yourself of only three things: 1) the desire to have, 2) the fear to lose, and 3) the need to change.”
Many people are only familiar with Ramana Maharshi’s self inquiry “Who am I?’ This passage is a clear demonstration of Ramana’s lesser know teaching of surrender. When you surrender fully there is no desire to have, no fear of loss or a need for change.
The Enlightenment Dudes enjoyed the format and the wisdom imparted in Chuck Hillig’s Seeds for the Soul and recommend it with an 9 out of 10 on our infinity scale.
I love this book. Chuck Hillig manages to express profound truth with utmost simplicity.
--Joan Tollifson, author, Awake in the Heartland
Seeds for the Soul is a powerful expression of spiritual truth. These pages are like lotus flowers that open, revealing deeper and deeper insights and wisdom.
--Jerry Katz, author, One: Essential Writings on Nonduality
Seeds for the Soul is a delightful book, full of simple truths that pierce through the veils of illusion

From the Publisher
Of the thousands of books in the modern spiritual marketplace, few state their message both simply and profoundly. Seeds for the Soul is one. Combining the wisdom of eastern philosophy with the principles of western psychology, Chuck Hillig presents a readable and compelling worldview that speaks directly to the reader's mind, heart, and soul. He points the way to true happiness for those who have struggled to find peace of mind and suggests that surrendering our idea of control over life is the path to fulfillment.
Like a good friend cutting through the confusion, Chuck Hillig takes you by the hand and leads you to where you can look reality squarely in the face. His words will quietly reverberate in the very depths of your consciousness, and whether they act as gentle reminders or loud alarm clocks, they will lovingly direct you to the only person who holds your truth: you. Seeds for the Soul is a unique and fascinating gift to the reader that invites you to revisit its enlightening pages again and again to discover its multi-layered treasures. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
