Author makes 35th appearance on Oprah
Gary Zukav has seen it all, Harvard on a scholarship, Vietnam as a Green Beret, quantum physics as a bestselling author. But now he says we can all evolve together.
Author Gary Zukav, the author of four bestsellers, made his scheduled his 35th appearance on an Oprah Winfrey show to promote his latest book –Spiritual Partnership: The Journey to Authentic Power
Zukav says he can teach the reader “the steps to developing this profound new relationship dynamic which enables and empowers us to reach our full potential and create authentic power – and the fulfilling and joyful life that is calling to us all.”
Just what is a “spiritual partnership?”
On his website, he calls the concept “the current extraordinary transformation in human consciousness – an unprecedented threshold in the human experience.”
“This transformation is no less than a revolution of the soul, one that touches the heart of all humanity and is based on spiritual growth,conscious choices, and a deep celebration and reverence for Life,” he says.
Is a spiritual partnership the same thing as a marriage?
“It could be, but usually it is not,” he writes in his personal blog. “A marriage is between two people who promise each other to stay together no matter what happens. This can be a very comforting thing, and it can also be a license for either of them to abuse, disregard or disrespect the other.
“Some marriages can continue a long time this way. Perhaps you have seen one.”
On the other hand, he writes, a spiritual partnership is between people who promise themselves to use all of their experiences to grow spiritually.
“They use their emotions to show them how to create constructive and healthy and joyful consequences instead of destructive and unhealthy and painful consequences.
“Can you imagine using a horrible, painful, can’t-get-any-worse experience to grow spiritually?” he asks in his blog. “Those are among the best kind. Spiritual partners don’t squander them by exploding in rage or dissolving into depression.”
