Item Description...

Once thought to be a symptom of illness, stress is now best defined as a disconnection from our divine source. Times of stress may bring feelings of panic and mayhem, but when we call upon our inner resources, stress also provides the opportunity for spiritual growth.

Ageless wisdom suggests that achieving spiritual growth requires balance; to stand secure and grounded like a mountain, but to flow like water. This book reveals how we can achieve balance and peace in our lives.

A delightful tool for spiritual awakening...  Oct 6, 2005
Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water, by Brian Luke Seaward, is a delightful tool for spiritual awakening.

Our souls often walk bare feet in the bogs of spiritual limbo while we physically wear expensive socks and shoes, and tread fancy floors. We ought to consciously unite with our true nature, the knowledge of which reveals our true calling, as human creations of the creative power behind the universal order. And once our consciousness has penetrated the depth of our reality, we discover that this power manifests itself divinely as love, as a force for good.

Admittedly, the good of one may be the bad of another, as in the case of a predator and its prey in the natural world. Within civilization, however, humans are meant to rise above this dog-eat-dog way through solidarity: love your neighbor as yourself, as Christ dictates. Nothing could be truer to our life mission than aligning our actions with this love in the most elevated, civilized manner. We are then the inspired servants of the creative power, within the compass of our humanity; and peace of mind spontaneously follows. This peace is a refined form of happiness, unlike the crude pleasure of the senses that is but a side dish and cannot satisfy our spiritual appetite. As Brian Luke Seaward himself says: "Trying to fill the spiritual void with material means is like cramming a square peg into a round hole."

This author's hypothesis that stress is best handled when we are spiritually charged - mindful of our true nature and all its precious lessons on the meaning of our lives - is one that commands respect. Furthermore, I contend that his book Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water - which richly expands on this hypothesis and contains a host of excellent insights, advices, and references - should be read by any truth seeker, even a non-Christian, provided he or she keeps an open mind.

He writes: "Our mission is to build bridges, not walls; to offer a hand in guidance, rather than turn our backs with indifference." Without a doubt, Mr. Seaward is a builder of bridges, and that with the knowledge and skill of a civil engineer of the soul.

No very practical, very academic  Oct 10, 2002
Desipte the title, this book does NOT teach you how to stand like mountain or to flow like water.

It is not a practical book on how to cope with stress.

However, if you want an academic account of human spiritualaity, it is not a bad book, but this is not I am looking for so just 2 stars.

Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water  Mar 29, 2002
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."
After the September 11th tragedy, I found myself rereading from the wisdom of Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water to try to find some meaning in all the sadness. His synthesis of the "Ageless wisdom" was very comforting in this time of spiritual hunger. I also found many passages which took on a greater meaning than when I first read it many years ago. I have given the book as a gift to many friends. I HIGHY recommend this book to anyone looking for meaning in their lives at this time. This book is a classic!
Finally, Someone got it right!  Jan 19, 2001
For someone who is spiritual, but not religious in the sense that there is ONLY one way, I highly recommend this book to anyone who is going through one (or many,as the case may be) life crises. This book is written in a simple manner on a very profound topic that meets you where you are and brings you up a few levels. Balance is the key to life, and I now have the key!
