Then that day in the library, my hand closed over a volume. I saw the title, shrugged, and checked it out. I had no idea of the ride I was about to embark upon.
At age 40, I was not totally unprepared for Seth. I had studied Rosicrucian monographs for nine years and, since my early twenties, had felt a keen interest in metaphysics and philosophy. Yet, I had always had a skepticism about mediums and seances and things ectoplasmic.
I began reading. I learned of the coming of Seth into the lives of Jane Roberts, and her husband Robert Butts. It was bemusing to follow the progress of two people who may well have been as skeptical as I. Well, how would you feel if suddenly some personality essence entity entered your body and proceeded to lecture? It's quite one thing to accept it in theory, but if it happened to me, I think it would scare me-well-witless.
I read on. I got past the mediumship thing and into the meat of the message. When I began to assimilate what Seth was saying, I no longer cared whether Ms. Roberts was getting the information from a disembodied spirit or her goldfish. The material, to me, was electrifying.
On one hand, it seemed hauntingly familiar. I found myself saying, "of course, that's how it must be!" And "yes, I seem to remember...." On the other hand, it took me a very long time to read The Seth Material (and every other Seth book). You don't speed read Seth!Read more ›
Much of it made sense with the spiritual path I have chosen. The most helpful part of this book was Chapter 19, The Inner Senses - What they are and how to use them. This helped me understand what I am experiencing as I "journey inward". One inner sense that I found puzzling is the "Inner Vibrational Touch". While I experience this "Inner Sense" during mediation, my experience is different than "Seths". But then again, Seth goes on to say each individual experiences life in his/her unique way.
I also liked the explanation for why we can't learn much from going to the higher dimensions/realms until we have "graduated" from this dimension. Seth equates it to a child that is taken to his father's office for a day. Boring. The child would rather be home playing with his "toys". That's what this place is. A playground with toys that can not only entertain us but cause us "pain". Seth calls it a classroom with consequences for creating and miscreating.
This book helped me understand why the "past" keeps getting rewritten or redefined. We change it. We literally change it like we "can" change the future. This makes sense to me. This is freedom "from" the past. We simply cannot be bound to the past unless we choose to be.Read more ›
