The following is from the website of Gary Zukov. Here, Gary is speaking of the nature of the soul, something which goes beyond sensory perception. His ideas are arresting, but I would have to add that this presentation, as effective as it is, ignores the role of Kundalini, which is, I think, the engine by which soul expresses itself in spirit, our nature as embodied intelligence while on earth. Gary equates multisensory perception with intuition, and, though there is great merit in this idea, I believe that multisensory perception also involves a total overhaul of the nervous and sensory system, so that we literally feel with new sensitivity, hear with new ears, and know with new awareness. (The ability not only to see auras but to feel them is one example of this new consciousness.)
As we mull over these arresting notions, we also are struggling to determine how such perspectives fit in with the disturbing happenings in our world today.
On Wednesday evening, Gary and two other spiritual leaders will discuss this conundrum--that though we are moving toward a world of ever expanding love, the world at present is also marked by acts of extreme violence and aggression. Gary has pointed out that the same day that the tragedy occurred in Boston, there were bombings in Iraq that killed 55 and injured 300. Innocent civilians continue to be killed by American drones seeking "possible terrorists" in other countries. I cannot figure out how to direct others to the sign up site for this talk, but you can begin by going to the website for the Shift Network at http://theshiftnetwork.com/main You can join this network there and perhaps discover how to register for this significant talk.

With Gary Zukav
Gary Zukav is the author of The Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics and The Seat of the Soul. He has been on The Oprah Winfrey Show numerous times, and as you will see, there is good reason so many people are grateful for his work.
GZ: We are experiencing the birth of a new species. From an evolutionary point of view, it’s happening very fast. It will be complete within only several human generations. Now is the beginning. The only other event in the history of humanity that matches this one in its magnitude is the first genesis – the creation of humanity. We are now experiencing the creation of a new humanity. This new species is being born inside you, inside me and inside the readers of this interview. It is emerging inside each of us, one by one.
There have always been authentically empowered multisensory humans. Every religion is named after one. And there have always been cultures based on multisensory perception. Native cultures, for example, recognize the relationship between the seen and the unseen worlds. But never before has our entire species shifted from one that is limited to the perceptions of the five senses to one that is not. Multisensory perception (the ability to see more than the five senses can detect) is emerging spontaneously in every culture, age-grouping, both sexes, and at every economic level.
“It is the birth of a species that is no longer limited to the perception of the five senses and that understands through the heart, rather than the intellect.”
G: What is a multisensory human?
GZ: A multisensory human is a human that is not limited to the five senses. The five senses together form a single sensory system. The object of detection of that system is physical reality. That was sufficient and appropriate for our evolution until this point. Now we are developing a second sensory system. That second system is intuition. Intuition and multisensory perception are the same. Multisensory perception is a more accurate term because the word intuition for many people only means having hunches.
Multisensory perception is the voice of the nonphysical world.
- Gary Zukav
Multisensory perception is more than that. It is also resonating with the idea that you are more than a mind and a body, that you are a soul, and that there is a difference between your personality and your soul. Your personality is your mind, your body and your intuitional structure. Your soul is that part of you that existed before you were born and that will exist after you die. It is that part of you that longs for harmony, cooperation, sharing and reverence for life. As you create your life with those intentions, you align yourself with your soul. Your experience becomes one of continual gratitude and joy, even when things are difficult. Multisensory perception is awareness from a soul level.
From the perspective of a multisensory personality, you can see your life in the context of a larger, unfolding picture that includes experiences that occurred before you were born. You can see, from this larger perspective, that your life is attempting to lead you in the direction your soul wants you to move – toward greater awareness and freedom.
Multisensory perception is realizing that the experiences in your life are not random. They are purposeful and meaningful. Each one holds an enormous potential for the expansion of your consciousness. Each one is tailored exquisitely for you. Every circumstance that you encounter is the best circumstance possible for your spiritual growth, given the wisdom of the choices that you have made. And, every circumstance serves equally all involved. You will never find, for example, people acting as stage props solely to assist you in your spiritual growth. All are served equally.
Every time you make a decision, you create consequences, whether you are aware of them or not.
