Excerpt from Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water. It's hard to go anywhere these days and not engage in a conversation about stress. Like the changes we encounter daily, stress is in the air. Sociologists tell us that stress is one of the few factors that knows no demographic boundaries. Writing a book about human spirituality lends itself to some significant limitations. Although limits exist, it is impossible to compose a book on this topic without making reference to the divine mystery we call God.

His colleague and mentor Larry Dossey, . says, Dr. Seaward daringly goes beyond the usual approach to the subject (of stress) to speak of the soul and of human spirituality because he realizes that stress management and maximal health are impossible to attain unless the questions of life’s meaning are addressed.

Our spiritual muscles are there for the asking

Our spiritual muscles are there for the asking. Spiritual health is flexing these muscles and feeling the strength they provide when needed. The health of the human spirit. Recognizing the unique alchemy of humanity and divinity is what allows us to best cope with life’s problems. Just as nervous tension can tighten muscle fibers to restrict the flow of oxygenated blood and nutrients to muscle tissues, so too can repeated perceptions of fear and anger restrict the flow of life force. In fact, these emotions may deny an adequate source of nourishment to that which is essential for physical health and spiritual growth.

An interesting book that went into too much detail sometimes and not enough at others. I haven't actually managed to read it cover to cover, but perhaps this winter. Still, it was worth buying if you're interested in Eastern thinking.

Get cruelly betrayed by some you love, that you though loved you. Loose something precious to you. Be cruisified for speaking the truth. And think that nothing makes sence. Then, pick up "Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water". As I read about Andrew, the paralized student that wanted to be admitted in an already filled college class on "Humor", I remembered that there are still things to laugh about and how good it feels to laugh. I read about a woman locked up in a Chinese prison and someone in Chicago who's child was taken away to a foreign country. Then I remembered how thankful I was for my own daughters and all that their lives bring to me. I read about Larry's message to his mother Carolyn and remembered that "holy moments" like that still happen. I felt the grace and peace and strenght that come from using "muscles of the soul" and knew that love is what makes this "flow like water". We are all - for the most part - "wonderful people with horrific life experiences' like Dr. Seaward has come to know and share with us through this incredible book. And, with flexing our soul muscles, we too can come back to the awareness that we can "Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water". So, when your "muscles of the soul" feel a little flabby, and you think you need a personal trainer to get back in shape, I highly recommend that you put this book in one hand, a nice cup of tea in the other and go SHAPE UP! :-)

Psychophysiologist Brian Luke Seaward advocates finding balance in life as a way of overcoming stress. The title of his book, Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water: Reflections on Stress and Human Spirituality, is based on a t'ai chi saying. Seaward says "to stand like a mountain suggests a sense of stability, resistant to the winds of change. To move like water implies the ability to go with the flow, rather than trying to change things we have no control over."
He says that balance can be learned, but doing so requires becoming aware of, and using, our inner resources. Inner resources include humor, creativity, courage, intuition, and faith, among others. Inner resources "can and should be employed every day," not just during times of crisis.
Study after study has documented the harmful effects of stress on the human body. Seward says many people feel stress because they have betrayed their spiritual nature by not living the lives they know they should be living. He compares life to climbing up a mountain, with each of us picking out the one path that is best for us. He says "not only are there numerous paths, but we each move at a pace conducive to our soul's growth process." He adds that "it is impossible to get lost on the spiritual path. We can only be immobilized by our own fears." Confronting stressors overcomes those fears and brings balance to our lives.
Seward drew from many disciplines, including psychology, theology, quantum physics, philosophy, sociology, and mythology, as well as from his experience as a therapist, to write Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water. He says that "it is my sole wish that the collective wisdom found among these pages serve as a reminder of what we already know, because the guidance we seek is really within us."

This book remains on my bedside table and I have worn the pages.... I know of no other book that offers a practical teaching approach to accessing our wise divine source. First the Author helps us to understand the very meaning of stress and then he helps us to understand that we simply have lost our divine connection which is the wise inner guide within. The mountain is spirit and it flows all through us when we become awake and move into daily awareness.Its simple approach to dealing with complex human experiences is what attracts me to its pages over and over.The stories become my stories and I come to understand how I am not alone and separate but part of a wonderful life force that supplies me daily with love and courage to overcome any life challenge.Dr Seaward uses humor as a wonderful teacher and shows the reader how life is a wonderful adverture and change is simply how the scenery keeps moving us along this journey. We just need to behave like free spirits in the presence of what feels like stress in order to flow through the sometimes damed river of life.
