Have you ever asked yourself, “What was I thinking?” Brian Seth Hurst did and in 30 days, he wrote a book that answered the question. Brian is the author of WHOLE, a collection of essays that reveal how our thoughts, beliefs and the way we feel serve to create not just our personal reality but also our national and global realities. Long fascinated with what is beyond what one can see, Brian refers to himself as a “metapratical man.”
In this interview, Brian reveals how he discovered that he was not whole, and his personal healing process for putting all of the seemingly disparate parts together to become a “whole” Brian Seth Hurst. Brian is also the co-author of the best-selling children’s book, A Pig Tale, which he wrote with Olivia Newton John.
A well-regarded entertainment professional in the digital arena, he has been at the forefront of innovation serving as CEO of The Opportunity Management Company. We are delighted to welcome him to the show! You can learn more about Brian’s work by following him on Twitter: @briansethhurst
What do you do after life has handed you a wake-up call? Author Brian Seth Hurst experienced a significant professional setback, but, rather than “soldier on,” he recognized it as a profound opportunity to acknowledge a deeper foundation at work in his life. It is the affirmation that there is sheer power in what one believes, and, for better or worse, those beliefs are the foundation for the reality we create.
The question of “Why?” began a thirty-day inquiry and adventure for Hurst into the unknown. The result is the book W H O L E - a collection of powerful essays that examine how beliefs serve, or do not serve, us in our lives, how those beliefs can be transformed to change our circumstances, and the power of the ultimate connection to Source.
What do you do after life has handed you a wake-up call? If you decide to remain awake, then you begin looking at your life. W H O L E is a companion to review the past, balance all areas of life, and begin to create anew. It prompts a very personal, progressive, and conscious examination of concepts and belief systems in every area of life, ranging from relationships, work and time, to money, the environment, morality and one’s purpose. It asks provocative and thoughtful questions that lead to understanding.
How do your reconcile everything that has happened and is happening in your life with the one you truly want? The good and the bad, the joy and the hurt, the wins and the losses - all those parts form the experience of your life and your identity. Yet, each of us is much greater than the sum of all those parts.
The book W H O L E allows the reader to make sense of the pieces of your life as part of the greater being that is You. It presents one with the opportunity to reconcile the past, arrive wholly connected in the present, and create their future.
W H O L E literally answers the question, “What was I thinking?” “To know “whole” in the duality of your reality, you must know broken. To know broken is to recognize that you are, always have been, and always will be WHOLE.”
