Poor Audio quality and narration

Bizarre tale, can hear narrator painfully swallow, and he does often. I couldn't get past it.

Interesting to Meet Again an Important Mind from an Earlier Time

I first read Gary Zukav’s Wu Li Masters forty years ago and it affected me deeply. It wasn’t that I was a student of The New Physics or Ancient Eastern Philosophy, but rather that I was ignorant of both. Why I chose to read that book is even now a total mystery to me, but I’m very glad I did because both of those disciplines have fascinated me and, in some ways, guided me ever since.

To hear his words again in this book is strangely comforting but also unsettling in a way. It’s not completely unexpected that his Mind has evolved from his earlier writing but discomforting that he has so fully embraced the New Age Movement in his Heart and in his every expression.

His Philosophy is soft and warm, and the sentiments he expresses are so simple and straightforward while at the same time couched in all the clichéd, fabulist terminology of reincarnated souls passing through past lives in alternate Universes. It’s a little like Mr. Rogers channeling Shirley MacLaine.

It was nice to read Zukav again, but, in the same way that I listen politely to the Credos of Believers and remain unmoved and unconvinced, I think I will continue to take my Life Lessons and Guidance directly from Lao Tse, The Stoics, and The Heart Sutra, and content myself to try to drag my poor Soul through this one and only Life while I have it.

Well worth the awakening listener.

Gary is interviewed very insightfully. He answers from a place of honesty and wisdom from experience.

Over all an interesting read

There were certain things I did not personal agree with but that does not mean it would not benefit someone else. Like all books regarding self-help and positivity. We take what we agree with and feel what will benefit us based on our life and leave the rest. Also the audio is poor quality. When your listening to a book you want the audio to good.

Alien abduction....

What would have made Authentic Power better?

Throw out the parts on reincarnation and channeling and I would have enjoyed the book.

Has Authentic Power turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

What three words best describe Gary Zukav and Michael Toms ’s performance?

"A good "performance"

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

There is a trace of wisdom here but the author could have done as well if the book had been a testimony on an anien abduction.

Any additional comments?

I can only hope his other books get back to reality.

Interesting, soothing.

I found this to be my own realisation of what's happening, though I haven't grasped the part about the Holocaust.
