Seth Speaks, Chapter Two (Contd)

Begin this series here.

Chapter Two (Contd):

Seth and others like him do not know death as we know death. They follow the rules of form in their varying environments. He states that consciousness is not dependent on form, yet it always seeks to create form.

Time is also not the same for him as it is to us, but he must take into account how time works where he is teaching or his lessons could not be understood. Everything for him takes place in what he terms as the moment point. It is in this moment point that the smallest thought is made manifest, the tinest possibility is explored, all probabilities are probed, and the least or most forceful feeling is feted. They can actually follow the consciousness of others through all of their experiences in a blink of an eye, yet he cautions that it was possible to get lost and forget who they were without much study, development, and experience. (So does that mean they can get lost in our personality?)

There is no end to their environment in which to operate, and they are aware of other various kinds of consciousness that are not in physical form, yet dwell in their own camouflage systems. He says they all have an inner knowledge of the reality that exists within their own camouflage systems, however. There are many more in conscious form than there are in physical form.

Vacations are usually visiting simple existences. One might spend a century as a tree, or create an entire forest for pure enjoyment and R&R. They usually focus their energies on their work, however. (Who does that sound like?)

The parts of ourselves reading this is only one portion of our entity, and is developing toward the same kind of existence as Seth. In our childhood and when we are dreaming our personality knows on some level the freedom that exists in our inner consciousness. These abilities are inherent characteristics of consciousness as a whole. In fact, we often use the dream state to exercise potentials.

He says it is not our imagination when a room, for example, suddenly feels small and cramped. Not only do we take for granted that this change of dimension is not possible, we rationalize it away. "Our physical senses confine us, as best the can, to the perception of a highly formalized reality". The fact is the room very well could have changed in very major ways, not the least of which will be the psychological effect it has on us. It also affects others that enter it, and will attract certain kinds of events because of it. Although throughout this process the room will not seem to change in actual inches and feet. (I found this astounding.) He used this as an example of how we can actually change our environment. The reason it would not seem to change in inches and feet is because the instruments used to measure would also be changed. (I'm still processing this information...)

Evidently, we can actually learn to change our physical environment by learning to change and manipulate our dream environment. We can suggest specific dreams that have the outcome that we wish to experience and under certain conditions these changes will appear in our physical reality. He says this happens without us realizing it.

As stated, some personalities have never been physical, however, he says all consciousness must show itself. In some systems the consciousness may manifest as mathematical or musical patterns that are stimuli for other universal systems. The senses that we use actually creates the environment that we perceive - which is a three-dimensional reality. Using inner senses we become conscious creators and co-creators whether we realize it or not. (I actually believe our three-dimensional "suits" are helping us to learn this concept in a very slow manner, much as we would teach our children. There is a time lapse between what we think and what materializes so that we have time to learn and understand this concept. Otherwise everything we think would materialize immediately - and I'm not sure we're quite ready for that yet.)

I'll quit here, although there is much more in Chapter Two. I again suggest to anyone reading this that if you find this material interesting that you pick up a copy of the book and read it for yourself. While I can summarize the information - Seth is actually a much better teacher.

Up Next: Ourselves

No matter how many times I have read about the concept of "no time" I still can't wrap my brain around the understanding that there is no past, present, or future.

My favorite Seth book is The Nature of Personal Reality,the one books where he gives practical activities to expand your own intuitive development.

Nancy said...

luksky - I know what you mean. I also have a very hard time with space and that space may be all in one place.

T&R - I have that one but wanted to re-read the first book. This one is heavy enough that The Nature of Personal Reality may need a break between..

Cloudia said...

Well written post that informed, and reminded me to re-explore this material. thanks!

Cloudia - It's worth reading again. I've forgotten so much, yet find science catching up with much of what he had to say so long ago.

Rob-bear said...

Hmmmm. Bear is trying to Think Deep Thoughts. This is interesting, but not engaging for Bear.

Nancy said...

Rob-bear - LOL - This series won't be for everyone.
