Dateline August, 2017:

        CELEBRATING THE SETH MATERIAL...    

        AND ITS SAFE UNIVERSE MESSAGE!      

 

Hello Seth friends, good to be with you today! As you know, Seth tells us “The inner natural leanings of all consciousness within the realms of your being now yearn for constructive change, clearer vision, to experience again their inherent sense of corporal spirituality, physical and psychic grace. They want to sense again the effortless motion that is their birthright.”
(Dreams, “Evolution,” and Value Fulfillment, Vol. 2, Session 941)

And how do we do do this? That is, what do we need to know and implement that will move us toward, and then into, such a goal? What else, if not Seth’s overarching concept that frees us from so much fear and doubt, and opens a path the world has not yet embraced as a point of fact: WE LIVE IN A SAFE UNIVERSE.

SETH: “At the risk of repeating myself, you live in a safe universe. At the risk of repeating myself, you can no longer equivocate either. When you find yourself in a period of distress, it is because you do not trust your safety. You cannot live in a safe universe and an unsafe one at the same time. You have to make a complete choice.”
(The Personal Sessions, Book 3, Session 757)

To help bring the SAFE UNIVERSE concept home, and a way of celebrating the Seth material’s introduction of it into our world culture, at the end of this newsletter you’ll find dozens of comments by Seth that should clarify not only the importance of this concept, but our ability to make it happen in our individual lives, and at the same time help bring it into the world consciousness too.

Enjoy it, my friends.Meanwhile, also enjoy the information and news from the Seth world that we’ve gathered below for your knowledge and awareness, folks. Very happy to share it all with you!

Warmest regards,

Lynda Dahl

The Latest News From Rick Stack


Hi all, here’s our current update from The Seth Educational Institute and New Awareness Network Inc.: 

* We are currently gearing up for the next Seth Intensive Online Course which will start on October 11, 2017. For more information or registration: https://sethcenter.com/collections/online-seth-intensive-course

* On the publishing front we are pleased to announce that we will be republishing three titles by Jane Roberts. We will start with Psychic Politics, the book that contains, among other things, Jane’s amazing information on the “codicils”. As Jane puts it, the codicils, are “an alternate hypotheses as a base for private and public experience.” 

And then we will go on with the republication of two other Jane classics, The God of Jane and Adventures in Consciousness. All of these books will also be available as ebooks. We hope to have all three out fairly quickly, and when we have them in stock they will appear on the featured product section in the middle of the homepage at sethcenter.com

* With regard to our last Online Global Seth Conference (February, 2017), let me take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated. First, thank you to all our great presenters, including my dear friend Lynda Dahl, whose presentations on “Living a Safe Universe” are helping people to implement and truly understand the importance of this crucial concept from the Seth material. And of course, thanks to all of our attendees, whose participation keeps these conferences going.

* The February, 2017 Online Global Seth Conference is still available for viewing on demand at this link. We don’t have a date for the next conference yet, but will keep everyone informed as soon as we do.

Spontaneously Yours,

Rick Stack

Notes From the One and Only…Ejay Jamb!


G’day from SETH NETWORK AUSTRALIA!We’re upside down and inside out here in Oz with it currently being our winter and for those north of the border (equator) your summer, but no matter where we are we Sethies keep sprouting up around the globe. For instance…
............................................................................................................................

* On February 6th, 2017 the second ONLINE GLOBAL SETH CONFERENCE went live with a list of nineteen incredible presenters who shared their unique perspectives on the Seth material or just their illuminating personal stories and I am grateful to have been part of that experience. Thank you to Rick Stack for making it all happen, he’s the guy! 
............................................................................................................................

* The Seth community is growing and I like to help Sethies meet each other in person (we have a lot to talk about)…but how do we find them? We seem to be scattered to the four winds of the world, so in order to assist I lurked around the website of SETH NETWORK INTERNATIONAL and looked in their SETH GROUPS/NETWORKS category. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many Seth groups around the world have been created over the years, and being a list kinda gal I created a document outlining groups by country and city. I call it my SETH MEETUP DOCUMENT. This doc is a PDF, folks, and as such cannot be linked here; but feel free to email me (
This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and I'll send a copy out to you.


So, if you like talking to other Sethies in the flesh, do request a copy and then take a peek to see if there’s anyone near you to meet and greet. Send a personal message to me on FACEBOOK or by email if you want to add, subtract or update details. Don’t forget, group organiser contact details are at the Seth Network International website’s SETH GROUPS/NETWORKS.

............................................................................................................................

* Our SETH MEETUP GROUP in Brisbane, Queensland, is ongoing, so if you’re holidaying on the Gold Coast or visiting Brisbane, get in touch and join us for a friendly brunch and a good old chin wag.(This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
............................................................................................................................

* In addition to making lists, I have also been giving Facebook’s SETH NETWORK SCOTLAND a helping hand and am co-administering. Daily Seth reminders are a given and my usual irreverent sense of humour prevails. Come and say hello, aye?
............................................................................................................................


* Oh, and another thought. If you didn’t know, there is a SETH PUBLISHER BASED IN ZURICH and also a number of GERMAN-SPEAKING SETH GROUPS on Facebook. Get in touch with SETH VERLAG to find out more info.
............................................................................................................................

* And finally, do visit our SETH NETWORK AUSTRALIA FACEBOOK GROUP, which is a heap of fun and full of interesting posts, discussions and daily Seth reminders. We have a pretty regular ‘Paper Bag or Box experiment’ going and most of you know it’s an effective exercise in the use of the inner senses. Any member is welcome to post an experiment and wait for the impressions, hilarious comments…and the interesting connections associated with the target item.

............................................................................................................................


That’s about if for now, my Seth friends…until our next catch up in the spacious present.

Playfully yours,

Ejay Jamb

Six Seth Videos by BOB TERRIO –


From 4D Arts Multimedia Marketplace!

In the early 1990’s, video producer Bob Terrio met and interviewed Rob Butts, and years later from that interview emerged a documentary titled THE SETH PHENOMENA. In this 70-minute program, Rob recounts Jane Roberts’ and his complete story for the first time. The video features over 40 unpublished photos of the couple from their personal collection, as well as dozens of both Rob’s and Jane’s paintings. Each photo is accompanied by an audio commentary by Rob.

...............................................................................................................................................


Then, recently Bob used these recordings to create two new video programs:

*
Jane Roberts & Robert Butts – A Family Album Tour. This 89-minute program is a rare look into their private lives as they grew up, met, and married, and the events that led to their association with Seth. This video also provides an exclusive video recording of Rob reviewing his notes and sketches from Jane’s earliest trance sessions.

*
The Art of Robert Butts and Jane Roberts. This 60-minute program features many works of art produced by both Rob and Jane, with Rob’s detailed commentary on each piece. It provides a rare tour of Rob’s studio, as well as Rob working on one of his paintings.
...............................................................................................................................................

And in June of 1997, Lynda Madden Dahl and Stan Ulkowski produced the first Seth conference to be held in Elmira, New York, called SethNet ’97. From it came the following videos:

*
SethNet’97 – Pioneers of Consciousness, A Family Gathering is a 4 DVD, 449-minute program. It includes: a chat with Rob Butts and Stan Ulkowski, the ESP Class reunion event, Rob’s birthday surprise, selections from the deleted Seth material, Rich Kendall’s recollections of Jane, skits, music and so much more!

*
SethFest! – Rob Butts Celebrates the Seth Legacy at SethNet ‘97 is a 2-DVD 225-minute program that highlights those events from the conference that feature Rob Butts and members of Jane’s ESP class.

*
Rob Speaks – An Interview with Robert Butts. This 84-minute program from an interview by Lynda Dahl and Stan Ulkowski, is available for the first time. It features unique stories and material not found in other programs produced by Bob.
...............................................................................................................................................

* Another video with a Seth connection is:
Symphonies of the Spheres, the Life and Work of George Rhoads (30-minutes). George was a member of Jane’s ESP class for several years. In addition to being an excellent painter, George became well known for his amazing kinetic sculptures that can be found in museums, malls, and public places around the world.
...............................................................................................................................................


All of these video programs are available for sale on DVD at Bob Terrio’s new website: 4D Arts Multimedia Marketplace. While there, be sure to check out other unique documentary videos and artwork.


You can also find 4D Arts Multimedia Marketplace on Facebook!

 Some Personal Notes and News, Folks…


*
You’re most welcome to join me at my latest Facebook offering, LIVING A SAFE UNIVERSE BOOKS GROUP. It’s based on my four Living a Safe Universe books—which are themselves based on the Seth/Jane Roberts material. As you may know, the underlying theme that flows through the LASU books ultimately has to do with developing a unilateral trust; a trust that allows us to use the moment point to our advantage, thereby leading to a consciously developed ease of living safely in our personal realities - as Seth tells us is entirely possible.

* And I’ll hold the thought of seeing you on my SETH-FOCUSED PERSONAL FACE BOOK PAGE,if you’re not already there. You’ll love the Seth quotes and conversations, to say nothing of meeting over 4,000 Sethies in one place, lol!

* For aquick introduction to all of my books and their eBooks, the best place is on Amazon because of their “Look Inside” feature which allows you to preview the contents, as well as read many Seth reader endorsements. However, the books and eBooks are also available on Barnes & Noble, and the eBooks in the iTunes Store.

*
 As publisher of Norman Friedman’strailblazing two Seth-based books,Bridging Science and Spirit (subtitled Common Elements in David Bohm’s Physics, The Perennial Philosophy and Seth); and The Hidden Domain (subtitled Home of the Quantum Wave Function, Nature’s Creative Source), I’m happy to say we’ve now released the eBooks for both of them. Again, Amazon is the best place to read about them, although they’re also on Barnes & Nobleand in the iTunes Store.
...............................................................................................................................................

I’ll sign off here, Seth friends, since there’s a lot for you to discover below from Seth. I send you my sincere warmest wishes for terrific creations and many happy moments. Talk to you again down the road, folks!

Warmly, Lynda

                                                   AND NOW FOR…

                  SETH on...THE SAFE UNIVERSE
............................................................................................................................

* The one-line official consciousness with which you are familiar says, “The world is not safe. I cannot trust it. Nor can I trust the conditions of experience or the conditions of my own existence. Nor can I trust myself.”

* You have an entire civilization and world set up about those beliefs I have just given you: that the universe is not safe; that you must defend yourselves from enemies that come from without, and worst of all, from enemies that are within.

* And so indeed do you feel uneasy, and set up your barriers, and run as fast as you can, in whatever way given you, from those enemies that are the result of a one-line official kind of consciousness.

* The one-line stage of consciousness was necessary... But that stage contained within it its own impetus. It set up challenges that could not be solved at that stage of consciousness, and that would automatically lead you into other strands of awareness. Only then can you say – and listen, now – 'I live in a safe universe.’
............................................................................................................................

* The belief in an unsafe universe sets up certain habits of resistance, and more practically, of self-protection. The resistance is protective. It shows itself in fears that seem perfectly realistic, and indeed highly practical.

* In an unsafe universe you run your personal life along certain lines. You do not trust good fortune; indeed, it seems practical not to trust it. It does not seem to belong in an unsafe universe.

* In an unsafe universe, you believe that something good will be fought over.

* You are so used to feeling unsafe that you consider alarm of one kind or another as a realistic approach to life.

* The idea of prevention is always based upon fear – for you do not want to prevent something that is joyful.
............................................................................................................................

* You try to say, “The universe is safe,” and then you watch the news on television or read the newspaper and you say, “What lie is this? How can the universe be safe when I read about wholesale murder, war, trickery and greed?”


* You cannot say “I live in a safe universe, but I am threatened by the economic problems of my state,” move to Pennsylvania, or to Timbuktu. It will make no difference, because the threat will follow you and erupt in one way or another while you believe in that system.

* As long as you believe that you dwell in a universe that is a threat, you must defend yourself against it.

* As long as you believe that the self is flawed...you must also defend yourself against yourself, and how can you then trust the voice of the psyche?

* When people are convinced that the self is untrustworthy or that the universe is not safe, instead of luxuriating in the use of their abilities, exploring the physical and mental environments, they begin to pull in their realities – to contract their abilities, to over-control their environments. They become frightened people.

* When you begin to realize that you do indeed live in a safe universe, these patterns of reaction begin to break up.

* The safe universe becomes “practical,” where before it was not considered so. This means a great deal of energy is released.

............................................................................................................................

* You cannot equivocate. You cannot say, “I live in a safe universe but but but but” anything. The threat will follow you and erupt in one way or another.


* You do live in a safe universe. You do. You need not believe that the world of the newspapers does not exist, but you must believe that the world cannot threaten you.

* By such a belief you so attract probabilities that you actually miss the threats that appear at one level of reality. In so doing, you not only help yourself but others as well, for they perceive your safety, and look for the reasons.

* The panic reaction you sometimes imagine helps remind you of the panic in which many people spend whole portions of their lifetimes. The way to help them is to perfect your own craft – your beliefs – so that others can use them also.

............................................................................................................................

* You live in a safe universe. This is not only a valid psychic truth, but is the basis for cellular integrity.

* You need not say, “The universe is safe,” for, at your present levels that will only enrage you! You say instead, “I live in a safe universe,” and so you shall.

* Ruburt said somewhere, "Sometimes you lean into the universe and feel it give." It is indeed yielding. It is not against you, nor is the world.

* You are each gradually leaving the official level of consciousness behind, in that its beliefs no longer serve as your criteria of reality.

* That reality exists, but it is not yours any longer.

* You are tuning into another channel, experiencing a reality that is not only quite as real, but presents a far truer picture.

* It is as if you were on a hilltop, surrounded by clear brilliant air. You could still look down at the foggy valley below, and see that it existed. You would also realize that you were not down there anymore.

.............................................................................................................................


* You cannot be hounded from one level of reality to another by a fear that you do not understand. You cannot be threatened in this life by so-called past existences.

* The universe is with you and not against you.

* Your fellow men are with you and not against you. When you realize that, then you reach those portions of your fellow men that are with you.

* The universe does not give up on any of its creatures.

* (Seth, humorously): I said it was a safe universe. I never said it was a perfect one.


* Some people always feel safe and protected even when the events of their lives do not seem favorable.

* Regardless of their own doubts and worries, such people feel themselves supported, and feel that in the end everything will work out to their advantage.
............................................................................................................................


* The greatest possible development allows the greatest possible security, for such development shows itself physically and in all other manners.


* Abilities must be ultimately tied in with your greatest inner aspirations – not tied down by your fears.


* Within yourself you recognize the validity of your own being. It is inviolate. It cannot be invaded or superseded by others, unless you acquiesce to such circumstances.

* There is nothing in mental or physical reality that you ever need fear, for you are filled with the vitality of All That Is, and it protects you. You must simply allow it to do so.

* A state of grace is provided you in which you can take action without care, without the anticipation of impediments.

............................................................................................................................

* When you thoroughly understand what is meant by the entire safe universe concept, then the physical, cultural climate is understood as a medium through which the ideal can be expressed. The ideal is meaningless if it is not physically manifest to one degree or another. The ideal seeks expression.

* The safe universe search itself would lead to a completely different set of values and a new belief system.
............................................................................................................................

(For background, the quotes were taken verbatim from twenty-one Seth books, and organized into categories by Lynda Madden Dahl.)



 
Dateline December, 2016: Seth and Season's Greetings!


                                    HI SETH FRIENDS, HAPPY AND FESTIVE HOLIDAY GREETINGS!

Well, here we are, folks, entering into another holiday season, heading at breakneck speed toward Christmas, Hanukkah, and the coming New Year 2017.

And as Seth tells us, “Enough constructive psychic energy is generated during the holiday season to recharge psychic batteries, so to speak, for quite some time. Were it not for this your whole race would be in much more serious a predicament.”(The Early Sessions, Book 5, Session 213)

So, how might we consciouslytake charge of that psychic energy mentioned by Seth? When I was contemplating that very idea, I happened to flip through Seth Speaks and my eyes landed on the phrase “Remind yourself.” It captured my attention enough that I searched all of Seth’s original books and the Early Sessions books for those words and the messages behind them. And as it turns out, as a compilation they outline a perfect path for us to follow into 2017, in essence focusing our constructive psychic energy exactly where we want it to be.

So, guys, at the end of this newsletter you’ll find a listing of each time Seth uses the words, and the sentences in which they’re found. A terrific body of assistance to make the most of what’s to come through our conscious thoughts for the coming year. Meanwhile, enjoy the in-between information and news below from the Seth world. Very happy to share it with you.


Here’s to a fantastic holiday season for us all, friends, and more, more, more Seth to flesh it out in all its glory!

 

Cheerfully and Festively Yours,
Lynda Madden Dahl


___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________                           

                                                    CHRISTMAS WITH SETH – AND HIS NEW YEAR’s RESOLUTIONS


To set the stage for the 
holiday season, a couple notes, folks:

*
 If you’d like to hear some of what Seth has to say about Christmas itself, do check out “Christmas With Seth” on our Seth Network International site, folks. Worth the read for sure!

*It just would not be a proper move into the New Year if someone didn't post Seth's New Year’s resolutions. So, we are assuring the continuation of a wonderful tradition by providing an article on SNI that contains the four resolutions Seth suggested to Jane and Rob on January 1, 1979.They provide a compelling reminder for all of us that one's focus creates, and that we can change our lives by changing our minds. While they get special mention during the holidays, we should also remember that these timeless gems are good reading on many other occasions throughout the year. So, enjoy, guys!

              SEASON’S GREETINGS FROM SETH NETWORK AUSTRALIA and EJAY JAMB!


Is it really that time of year again? My dreams seem to last longer than the months flashing past! I know, I know, the spacious present, the moment point and whizz bang here I am focused in December, 2016. Magical.

Our Seth Net Oz group is merrily twinkling along with a stunning diversity of members from all corners of the world. Thank you all for being part of the growing Seth movement. I’m still finding themes to explore each week, and after two and a half years find it amazing I haven’t run out of topics yet, but that’s the Seth material for you. It’s a never ending source of information and inspiration.

Our Brisbane Seth Meet-up is having its first Christmas get-together on December 18. The conversations are funny, fast and furious as we share ideas and stories and as always it is such a pleasure to be in company with other Sethies. Imagine yourself there with us in a beautiful park, on the water, in the shade of large trees. Summer in Australia... what’s not to love? 

The next Online Global Seth Conference starts on February 6th, 2017, and has a panel of presenters you won’t want to miss. I’ll be there on February 16 with my presentation titled ‘Resisting our Constructions’, a humorous personal journey through a series of events that keep me challenged every step of the way and then some! Join in the fun as I lose my way, find my way, lose it again, stop resisting my constructions and get over myself.

Seth Network Australia on Facebook is a hub for anyone interested in the Seth books (the name might have given it away), so come on over, become a member and say G’day. Enjoy the daily passages, discussions and the companionship of other Seth readers.

Have an enchanting Christmas and a glorious New Year, with oodles of love from down under!

Your friend, Ejay Jamb

SIX SETH VIDEOS BY BOB TERRIO –
from 4D ARTS MULTIMEDIA MARKETPLACE!


In the early 1990’s, video producer Bob Terrio met and interviewed Rob Butts, and years later from that interview emerged a documentary titled “The Seth Phenomena”. In this 70-minute program, Rob recounts Jane Roberts’ and his complete story for the first time. The video features over 40 unpublished photos of the couple from their personal collection, as well as dozens of both Rob’s and Jane’s paintings. Each photo is accompanied by an audio commentary by Rob.

Then, in 2014 Bob used these recordings to create two new video programs:

*
Jane Roberts & Robert Butts – A Family Album Tour. This 89-minute program is a rare look into their private lives as they grew up, met, and married, and the events that led to their association with Seth. This video also provides an exclusive video recording of Rob reviewing his notes and sketches from Jane’s earliest trance sessions.

SOME PERSONAL NOTES AND NEWS, FOLKS…


* I’m so pleased to say I’ll be presenting again at the second Online Global Seth Conference in February (as Rick mentioned above). This time my hour-long talk is titled “Living a Safe Universe, Part 2: Seth and Building Unequivocal Trust.”(My talk at the first conference was “Living a Safe Universe, Part 1: Seth and Psychic Health.”) Hope to see you there, folks!

* Also, you’re most welcome to join me at my new Facebook offering, LIVING A SAFE UNIVERSE BOOKS GROUP. It’s based on my four Living a Safe Universe books—which are themselves based on the Seth/Jane Roberts material. As you may know, the underlying theme that flows through the LASU books ultimately has to do with developing a unilateral trust; a trust that allows us to use the moment point to our advantage, thereby leading to a consciously developed ease of living safely in our personal realities - as Seth tells us is entirely possible.

* And I’ll hold the thought of seeing you on my personal Facebook page,if you’re not already there. You’ll love the Seth quotes and conversations, to say nothing of meeting over 4,000 Sethies in one place, lol!

* For a quick introduction to all of my books and their eBooks, the best place is on Amazon because of their “Look Inside” feature which allows you to preview the contents, as well as read many Seth reader endorsements. However, the books and eBooks are also available on Barnes & Noble, and the eBooks in the iTunes Store.

*
 As publisher of Norman Friedman’strailblazing two Seth-based booksBridging Science and Spirit (subtitled Common Elements in David Bohm’s Physics, The Perennial Philosophy and Seth) and The Hidden Domain (subtitled Home of the Quantum Wave Function, Nature’s Creative Source), I’m happy to say we’ve now released the eBooks for both of them. Again, Amazon is the best place to read about them, although they’re also on Barnes & Nobleand in the iTunes Store.

* Finally, do visit me on Twitter at Lynda Madden Dahl and Seth Network International. Each day on each account I post one Seth quoteabout anything that grabs my attention that day. It's fun and a great way to keep the material focused in our minds.
...............................................................................................................................................

I’ll sign off here, Seth friends, since there’s a lot for you to discover below from Seth. I send you my sincere warmest wishes for 2017’s terrific creations and many joyous moments. Talk to you again down the road!

Warmly, Lynda

SETH ON “REMIND YOURSELF…”


In The Magical Approach (session six), Seth says:
“One of the intellect's main purposes is to give you a conscious choice in a world of probabilities. To do that properly the intel­lect is to make clear, concise decisions, on its level, of matters that areitsconcern, and therefore to present its own picture of reality to add to the entire construct.”

So, how do we do that in daily life? That is, what does Seth SPECIFICALLY suggest we remind ourselves of as we traverse this, our daily incarnation, in order to apply our intellect’s focus on conscious choices?To find out, I searched all of the original and Early Session books for the words “Remind Yourself” and then organized them loosely into four categories. As it turns out, Seth’s comments do indeed offer us an overview of what we’re to focus on – or not, as the case may be –  while in daily physical reality. So, enjoy folks!
..............................................................................................................................................


*
REMIND YOURSELFthat you are an integral part of the universe.

* REMIND YOURSELVES that you are involved in a learning process; you are daring enough to accept the responsibility for your actions.

* REMIND YOURSELF that your thoughts form reality.* REMIND YOURSELF again: “I am an excellent person,” adding: “It is good and safe for me to express my own abilities, for in doing so I express the energy of the universe itself.”

* REMIND YOURSELF that life implies action and motion, and even the activity of the most despondent thought flows in great bursts of rhythm.

..............................................................................................................................................


*
REMIND YOURSELF that for all you might have read, or heard, or deduced earlier, it is certainly not inevitable that all unfortunate situations take the darkest of tones, and that indeed the opposite is true.


*
REMIND YOURSELF that any situation can be changed for the better.* REMIND YOURSELVES constantly that the most favorable solution to a problem is at least as probable as the most unfortunate ‘solution.’

* 
REMIND YOURSELF that it is far more natural and probable for any problem to be solved, and that every problem has a solution.


*
REMIND YOURSELF that in many ways you are a very successful person as you are. Success does not necessarily involve great intellect or great position or great wealth; it has to do with inner integrity. Remember that.

..............................................................................................................................................


* 
REMIND YOURSELFfrequently that the physical condition IS symbolic—not a permanent condition.* REMIND YOURSELF that the physical matter of your…image is filled with and formed by universal energy.

*
REMIND YOURSELF that your body does indeed have the capacity to heal itself.

*
REMIND YOURSELFthat you are the one who has been projecting these ideas onto your (body) and you can remove the ideas.

*REMIND YOURSELVES also that despite all of your worrying, the spirit of life itself IS continually within your experience and forms your physical body.

..............................................................................................................................................


*
REMIND YOURSELF that THE FUTURE IS INDEED THERE if you want it, and that you can grow into that future as easily as you grew from the past into the present.


* 
REMIND YOURSELF of your own endless creativity. * REMIND YOURSELVES therefore of that fact, and do not tell yourselves that your situation in any case is a hopeless one.

* REMIND YOURSELVESTHAT WHAT I (SETH) SAY CAN DEFINITELY BE ACCOMPLISHED

Dateline July, 2016: Summer and Seth, 2016

SUMMER and SETH
 2016


HI SETH FRIENDS, LYNDA DAHL HERE...


Welcome to the upcoming lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway! Today I’d like to not only offer you our usual tidbits of Sethian news, but also leave you with a long list of Seth comments on FEAR, and its impact and influence on our lives. Can’t hear enough about that from our friend, and a good reminder that FEAR CREATES, just as all thoughts and feelings do.

Okay, for starters, folks, here’s the latest news from the world of Seth, and we'll kick it off with a tribute to a dear friend no longer in physical reality.

………………………………………………………………………………....................................................

A FOND FAREWELL TO LAWRENCE DAVIDSON


As some of you know, Lawrence passed on May 18. He was a member of Jane’s ESP class, close buddy of Seth’s and called Pan by him (yes, THAT Pan J ), founder of California Seth Conference, and good friend to many of us.

Here is a video link from our Seth Network International 1997 conference, which Rob attended on his 78th birthday. Filmed by friend Bob Terrio, it shows Lawrence on stage at the mic with other ESP class members around him (including Richard Kendall at the podium and Rick Stack sitting to the far left), discussing some of his adventures during the class, including comments to Lawrence by Seth.Not to be missed, guys. A terrific way to pay tribute to a wonderful friend

A NOTE FROM RICK STACK AT NEW AWARENESS NETWORK INC. and SETHCENTER.COM


Hi all, here’s a quick update on upcoming events and new releases. The next Online Seth Intensive Course will start on Sept 28, 2016. Full Information and Registration available at
sethcenter.com.Also, the next Online Global Seth Conference is still in the works and will start February 6, 2017. Full information on that conference will be available late fall 2016. 

On the publishing end, we are currently working on a reprint of Sue Watkins’ book, Dreaming Myself, Dreaming a Town: Field Notes From the Land of Dreams. It’s a great companion book to the Seth material by the author of the acclaimed Conversations with Seth. Here’s what Rob Butts wrote about Dreaming Myself, Dreaming a Town:

From Robert F. ButtsJane Robert’s husband and co-author of the Seth Books:

“Sue has written a fine, evocative book, one based upon her own intensely felt intuitive, psychic, and dreaming knowing. Just as Sue is certain, I’m certain that each one of us has conscious access to the luminous, transforming knowing that our larger dreaming self creates—but Sue has done us the great service of putting that knowing into words for us in this book.

In Dreaming Myself, Dreaming a Town, Sue Watkins takes us on multilevel searching journeys through our individual and mass consciousnesses. From the dreams of a community of people, from her own dreams and from those of others, she validates that great knowing, dreaming, mysterious reality—the vast foundation that all of us join in creating to support our swarming vitality."

As Sue tells us, we don’t have to go anywhere to find our individual portions of this splendid creation: ‘It’s right here, within each one of us.’ Her personal explorations show us that, and they in turn cast new light upon the paths of our own searches. She helps each one of us dreaming creatures find our way. I welcome her contribution to our knowing.

.....................................................................................................................................................

TWO NEW SETH FACEBOOK SITES TO CHECK OUT…


* Speaking of dreaming, folks, long-time Seth reader and dream explorer Billie McGregor Petty
recently launched the first Seth dream group on Facebook, and it’s called SETH DREAM COMMUNITY. Do check it out if you’re interested in dream work. Our Seth friends are already gathering there!

* Also you’re most welcome to join me at my new offering, LIVING A SAFE UNIVERSE BOOKS GROUP. It’s based on my four Living a Safe Universe books—which are themselves based on the Seth/Jane Roberts material. As you may know, the underlying theme that flows through the LASU books ultimately has to do with developing a unilateral trust; a trust that allows us to use the moment point to our advantage, thereby leading to a consciously developed ease of living safely in our personal realities. Hope to see you there, friends!


………………………………………………………………………………....................................................


HELLO FROM EJAY JAMB and SETH NETWORK AUSTRALIA…G’day from SNA! We all know it’s the spacious present, but this year seems to be galloping along without a thought for my poor physical senses, which blinked, and then there was July.

Having romped overseas twice this year, I took the opportunity while in the U.S. to visit some very dear Seth friends in Arkansas. It’s like being reunited with other members of a different family; those other black sheep who speak your language and know the joys and challenges of being consciously aware of creating their own reality.In fact, it seems to me that Sethies are getting together more and more. I know of four lovely ladies who recently scheduled to meet for the first time in Hawaii and had an absolute blast, what a great construction. And those dear friends I visited in Arkansas? The moment I left they drove all the way to Oregon, meeting with any Sethies in the local areas they travelled through. Way to go guys!!

That brings me to our first ever Brisbane meetup for Seth readers right here in sunny Queensland, Australia. Nine marvellous personalities met in beautiful Newfarm Park on the Brisbane River last month and talked and laughed nonstop for three hours! What a pleasure and a privilege to be living so close to each other with the ability to meet regularly. The next one is scheduled for July 24, 2016, so if you are in the area come join us, I can’t wait!

Seth Network Australia turned two this year and celebrated with some fun online activities and Seth passages. Wow! My baby is growing up. See what I mean about the galloping year? I’m trying not to blink too fast.

That’s my midyear news from down under, and if you would like to hang out with other Sethies, come see us at our FACEBOOK HOME.

Many hugs,Ejay Jamb[HAPPY SECOND BIRTHDAY, SETH NETWORK AUSTRALIA, FROM ALL YOUR FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD! GREAT JOB, GUYS!]

A SETH-BASED ARTICLE ON ENDING FEAR…

Since today’s Seth topic (outlined below) is on FEAR, as an adjunct we offer a link to an article I wrote on the subject found in my Seth Network blog, called BREAKING THE BONDS OF FEAR. To kick the article off, here’s Seth:

“You are in physical existence to learn and understand that your energy, translated into feelings, thoughts and emotions, causes all experience. There are no exceptions.”

—The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 614

Enjoy, folks!

………………………………………………………………………………....................................................


SOME PERSONAL NOTES before we move on to SETH ON FEAR

*
As you may know, my eighth Seth-based book and fourth in the Living a Safe Universe series (this one subtitled Seth and Psychic Health) is now available. The series is focused on how we can learn to live in trust and safety in our individual realities by focusing on certain Sethian knowledge and an in-depth use of the moment point.


For a
quick introduction to all of my books and their eBooks, the best place is on Amazon because of their “Look Inside” feature which allows you to preview the contents as well as the many Seth reader endorsements. However, the books and eBooks are also available on Barnes & Noble, and the eBooks in the Apple iTunes store.

*
As publisher of Norman Friedman’s magnificent two books, Bridging Science and Spirit (subtitled Common Elements in David Bohm’s Physics, The Perennial Philosophy and Seth) and The Hidden Domain (subtitled Home of the Quantum Wave Function, Nature’s Creative Source), I’m happy to say we now have released the eBooks for both of them. They are in both Kindle and ePub versions (Barnes & Noble and the Apple iTunes store).

* I’ll hold the thought of seeing you on my personal Facebook page, if you’re not already there. You’ll love the conversations and Seth quotes, to say nothing of meeting over 4,000 Sethies in one place, lol!


*
And do visit me on Twitter at Lynda Madden Dahl and Seth Network International. Each day on each account I post one Seth quote about anything that grabs my attention that day. It's fun and a great way to keep the material focused in our minds.

...................................................................................................................................................

I’ll sign off here, Seth friends, since there’s a lot for you to discover below. I send you my sincere warmest wishes for 2016’s terrific creations and many ‘fearless’ moments. Talk to you again down the road!

Warmly, Lynda

SETH ON FEAR

So, what does Seth have to say about the impact and influence of FEAR in our lives? Following are comments I gathered from his various books about the huge importance of this subject to us, and here he is to kick it off:


“The universe is with you and not against you... The belief in an unsafe universe sets up certain habits of resistance, and more practically, of self-protection. The resistance is protective. It shows itself in FEARS that seem
perfectly realistic, and indeed highly practical, for you are so used to feeling unsafe that you consider alarm of one kind or another as a realistic approach to life.”


The Personal Sessions, Book 3, 10/20/75
(caps used for emphasis)
_____________________________________________________________________________________

*
Going out into the world means going out into a safe universe with the way cleared and vision open, where none of the old defenses are needed and in which old FEARS no longer apply.

* Dis-ease serves to protect you from the frightening FEAR that if everything goes well something must be wrong, because in an unsafe universe that is a belief.

* There is nothing in mental or physical reality that you ever need FEAR, for you are filled with the vitality of All That Is, and it protects you. You must simply allow it to do so.

* The idea of safety and reassurance counters the FEAR.

* Conscious FEAR is usually the main hindrance as far as data from the inner senses is concerned.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

* A belief in good without a belief in evil is actually highly realistic, since in physical life it will keep your body healthier, keep you psychologically free of many FEARS and mental difficulties, and bring you a feeling of ease and spontaneity in which the development of your abilities can be better fulfilled

* That which is FEARED is FEARED so strongly and concentrated upon so intensely that it is attracted rather than repelled.

*
They set themselves up to meet the very conditions they FEAR.

*
They may run to avoid heart disease, for example, while their own FEAR can help to promote the very eventuality they FEAR.

* Your current ideas of preventative medicine generate the very kind of FEAR that causes disease.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

* In all cases without exception, FEAR leads to defective constructions, and the cycle is vicious.

* The approach should not be FEAR of war but love of peace; not FEAR of poverty, but concentration upon the unlimited supplies available on your earth.

* Ruburt's recent discomfort is partially caused by the FEAR that his body will not be able to completely heal itself, even if he does uncover all of the reasons for his predicament.

* He has projected upon the present event the picture of his FEARS.

* The FEARS have always been there, of course, and your latest efforts simply brought them into prominence, or cast a spotlight upon them.

_____________________________________________________________________________________


* When you FEAR the worst will happen, you often are showing quite real faith in a backwards fashion, for with no direct evidence before your eyes, you heartily believe it will occur.

*
A sudden but intense feeling of hatred or resentment or FEAR may cause tragic physical circumstances.

* Those that speak to you of non-desire, carry within themselves FEAR of their own being.* Desire attracts but FEAR also attracts. Severe FEAR is highly dangerous in this respect.

* Abilities must be ultimately tied in with your greatest inner aspirations – not tied down by your FEARS.

_____________________________________________________________________________________


* The individual then constructs FEAR and hatred into physical construction, giving FEAR and hatred definite physical form.

* The FEAR that blocks that energy can indeed be dissipated, if new beliefs are inserted for old ones.

* In your FEAR of negative thoughts you often attempt to deny all normal aggressiveness, and at the first glimpse of it bring up your mental antibodies prepared for action.

* Until you are honest with yourself and become consciously aware of yourself, you cannot honestly relate with others; you will project upon them your own FEARS and prejudices.

* I speak to you because yours is the opportunity [to better world conditions] and yours is the time. Do not fall into the old ways that will lead you precisely into the world that you FEAR.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

AND IN CLOSING:

"Organize your reality according to your strength; organize your reality according to your playfulness; according to your dreams; according to your joy; according to your hopes—and THEN you can help those who organize their reality according to their FEARS."

Dateline December 30, 2015: The Year of Our Trust...NEW YEAR 2016!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, SETH READERS!

We’ve come a long way with the Seth material, haven’t we, folks? We’ve absorbed knowledge and made changes perhaps not probable before ‘meeting’ Seth, Jane and Rob. And it was always contingent on our TRUST—not only in them, but more important our trust in our self.

But can we go further? Can we make the full leap from trusting perhaps just sometime, to a full unilateral trust in our inherent right to create a life of consistently living a safe universe?

If so, what is it we need to trust in more concrete terms? According to Seth, “Trust the natural order of being; that conditions are largely conducive to it; that your needs will be met within the circumstances of that natural order; and that you are couched and supported.” And, “You must trust your own nature, for it has a purpose,” And, “What is needed is a basic trust in the nature of vitality, and faith that all elements of experience are used for a greater good.”

He says more than that, of course, but the ultimate bottom line is we need to TRUST OUR SELF. As Seth tells us, “You cannot equivocate. You either trust the self or you do not.”

So trust is the overall goal for our New Year 2016, the year laden with all the possibilities it implies. To help us along on our path to our goal, I thought it might be useful to hear some of what Seth has to say about trust.

So after a few notes and announcements, I'll paste below them a gift from Seth to help us kick off New Year 2016, The Year of Our Trust.
……………………………………………………………………………….....

SETH'S NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

It just would not be a proper New Year if someone didn't post Seth's resolutions. So, we are assuring the continuation of a wonderful tradition by providing an article on Seth Network International that contains the four resolutions that Seth suggested to Jane and Rob on January 1, 1979. They provide a compelling reminder for all of us that one's focus creates, and that we can change our lives by changing our minds. While they get special mention on New Year’s Day, we should also remember that these timeless gems are good reading on many other occasions throughout the year. Enjoy!

(And while Christmas is past, if you didn't get a chance to read what Seth has to say about it in "Christmas With Seth" on our SNI site, but are interested, it's still up!

A QUICK UPDATE FROM RICK STACK AT 
NEW AWARENESS NETWORK
and SETHCENTER.COM:

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our wonderful presenters and participants for helping create a fantastic 2015 Online Global Seth Conference. And special thanks to my friend Lynda Dahl for helping get the word out and all the ceaseless work she does to help the Seth material. 

We have already begun planning for the next online global conference and hope to make this an ongoing framework for supporting the Seth books. For anyone who missed the last conference, we will also shortly be offering 3 month access to the recordings.

With regard to our courses, the next Seth Intensive Online Course will be held in the late winter or early spring of 2016, and the dates will be finalized shortly.

Wishing you all a joyous and spontaneous 2016 and beyond!  

Rick Stack

THE EIGHTH CALIFORNIA SETH CONFERENCE, SET FOR MARCH,2016, has been postponed to March, 2017, folks, according to founder Lawrence Davidson. He will get back to us when the new date becomes available.

G’DAY, FROM EJAY JAMB and SETH NETWORK AUSTRALIA!

What a GREAT year 2015 has been for SNA. We celebrated our first birthday in June on our very active FACEBOOK page (and it’s open to Seth readers from all countries, so do come join us!).

SNA has an established routine on Facebook, starting the week with a theme. Each day I post relevant passages to remind us all of the focus and awareness necessary to consciously create our reality. Comments, discussions and humorous sallies are our daily bread and make it fun to interact with our global Seth family.

What’s on the SNA agenda for 2016? Well, whatever we concentrate on, of course. Make suggestions, throw in ideas and see what we can create together. In the meantime, I will keep the show going and if I’m visiting your city in 2016, then let’s meet up. I’ll keep you posted in SNA.

I’ll wrap up by saying I’m so grateful to our members for their participation in SNA and making it a comfortable place for like-minded individuals to share the Seth principles. We are part of an ever growing movement of practicing idealists. Thank you all.

With much love, Ejay Jamb

                                   SETH on TRUST
  
(A composite of quotes taken from many of the Seth books)

In each person, the ultimate and unassailable and unquenchable power of All That Is is individualized, and dwells in time.

A portion of All That Is resides within and is a part of every consciousness. Every consciousness is therefore cherished and protected individually.

There are no real rules to be followed that will bring you into…an encounter with the present moment of reality – only a trust in the nature of your being.

And that trust is within you whether or not you recognize it, for it gives you your present experience; and no matter how your mind questions, it resides securely in the great creativity of the soul.

If you cannot trust that which keeps you alive, what can you trust?

…You must trust your own nature, for it has a purpose.

…Trust the natural order of being; that conditions are largely conducive to it; that your needs will be met within the circumstances of that natural order; and that you are couched and supported.

You cannot trust yourself and not trust yourself at the same time, without coming into some difficulty.

You cannot equivocate. You either trust the self or you do not.

What is needed is a basic trust in the nature of vitality, and faith that all elements of experience are used for a greater good.

Some people always feel safe and protected even when the events of their lives do not seem favorable.

Regardless of their own doubts and worries, such people feel themselves supported, and feel that in the end everything will work out to their advantage.

They take it for granted that their needs will be met, and that the universe is well-disposed toward them.

Every event serves a purpose. Every event is offered for a reason. What is good? What is bad?

The soul constantly creates the body, and each individual on the face of the earth at any given time places his or her trust in that reality.

It is far better to trust, for you open up Framework 2 so that benefits become available that might otherwise not be.

…He (Ruburt) did not have the courage of his convictions, and really made no attempt to act upon them. Had he left the gallery when his novel was published, he would by now have one and a half times his present income from writing. …

He would have been acting out of expectancy, in league with subconscious as well as conscious need, and the impetus of wanting money would have given it to him, if he closed off the other means. He did not.

When you begin trusting yourselves, you start by taking it for granted that to some extent at least you have not trusted yourself or your impulses in the past.

When you learn to trust your feelings and your impulses, something very strange happens. They turn quite trustworthy.

…In your larger picture there are no errors, for each action, pleasant or not, will be redeemed.

And if it seems that a trust is betrayed in an individual case, the overall picture will prove to be far different.

You must begin to trust yourself sometime. I suggest you do it now.

Society would be restructured if the self were trusted.

Your exterior improvements are the result of inner workings, and they represent the growth of inner confidence.

Natural optimism is a power in the individual and in the world. It believes in triumph, in pleasant, unpredictable surprises, in unexpected solutions, joyful occurrences.

You begin to glimpse a promised land – a land of psyche and reality that represents unimpeded nature.

Miracles are nature unimpeded.

Many of you keep searching for some seemingly remote spiritual inner self that you can trust and look to for help and support, but all the while you distrust the familiar self with which you have such intimate contact. You set up divisions between portions of the self that are unnecessary.

I am saying that you and every individual is in control of their own destiny. You are in control, you are not moved by other forces.

Spiritual knowledge and psychic wisdom are the natural result of a sense of self-unity.

Until you have faith in yourself, you can have no real faith in the universe or in All That Is.

…Faith is the agent in which growth can happen.

…A state of grace is provided you in which you can take action without care, without the anticipation of impediments.

Faith in a creative, fulfilling, desired end – sustained faith – literally draws from the universe all of the necessary ingredients, all of the elements however staggering in number, all of the details, and then inserts into physical life the impulses, dreams, chance meetings, motivations, or whatever is necessary so that the desired end then falls into place as a completed pattern.




Dateline August 7, 2015: SETH WORLD CONFERENCES FOR FALL 2015!

HELLO SETH READERS!
The fall of 2015 will see a first for the Seth world community, so we decided to create this special Seth Network newsletter specifically to make you aware of the global happenings.

Three major SETH WORLD CONFERENCES are being offered this September through Decemberoriginating in America, Germany and Taiwan. This is worthy of a celebration, since it is the first time for this kind of confluence, and speaks volumes about the spread and influence of the Seth material in our day and age. (Go Seth!)

We’ve asked representatives of each conference to tell us what can be expected at their gathering, and have listed their responses below in date order. We’ll turn the stage over to them without further ado—well, after this Seth quote on how our beliefs affect the global climate of creation. So, here we go, folks…

............................................................................................................................................................................

"At any given time, there are various climates of belief pervading the world. Some will be clustered in certain areas, for example, like low-pressure systems. Some will generally be local, and others will sweep across the continents like great periodic storms.

“Remember that ideas are as natural as the weather. They follow patterns, then, and obey certain laws even as more strictly physical phenomena do. Unfortunately, no one examines the nature of mental reality from such a viewpoint.

“You will be born in the midst of certain mass beliefs, and these may vary according to the country of your nativity. As you come into your body with all of its physical surroundings, so at birth do you emerge into a rich natural psychological environment in which beliefs and ideas are every bit as real.

“As you become more proficient at using your conscious mind, then of course you examine the beliefs that surround you, even as you question and often move out of your native environment. You may then migrate to a climate in which the prevailing ideas suit you better, as well as the weather.”


The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 649

: For the 34th time Seth readers from Switzerland, Germany and Austria will meet for a joint weekend full of discussions and workshops on the Seth Material. The main topics of the 34th annual meeting are: transitions, transition periods and changes. Although we may experience such phases as difficult, they are natural events created by ourselves that allow us to select new probabilities and to launch new actions towards an even more consciously created life.

Like every year, we also begin this meeting with a great welcome party on Friday night and a reading from the Seth Material. On Saturday and Sunday mornings Psy-Time exercises will be held, followed by creative workshops and discussion groups. Another topic we will dive into on Sunday morning are the so-called families of consciousness, as Seth describes them in his texts. Like every year, on Saturday afternoon the annual general meeting will take place, open to all participants of the conference.

Also on Saturday afternoon, two new German translations of Seth books that will be published in October by the Swiss Seth Publishing Company will be presented: Vol. 1 of The Personal Sessions by Jane Roberts, and Vol. 2 of Living a Safe Universe by Lynda Madden Dahl.

This year's conference will be held once again at the Hohenwart Forum near Pforzheim. The hotel is beautifully situated in the Black Forest, the rooms are modern and nice and the food is excellent. After the official program we usually meet at the cozy hotel bar to discuss Seth into the wee hours!

A few personal notes before I sign off, folks:

* If you happen to be one of the people who register for the Online Global Seth Conference, I’ll see you there! My presentation is for an hour on Friday, October 2, and its titled Living a Safe Universe: Seth and Psychic Health, a subject near and dear to my heart.


*
I’m pleased to say I’m making writing progress on my upcoming eighth Seth-based book and fourth in the Living a Safe Universe series. As many of you know, the series is focused on how we can learn to live in trust and safety in our individual realities by focusing on certain Sethian knowledge and an in-depth use of the moment point. For a quick introduction to all of my books, the best place is on Amazon because of their “Look Inside” feature which allows you to preview the contents.

* As publisher of Norman Friedman’s magnificent two books, Bridging Science and Spirit (subtitled Common Elements in David Bohm’s Physics, The Perennial Philosophy and Seth) and The Hidden Domain (subtitled Home of the Quantum Wave Function, Nature’s Creative Source), I’m happy to say we now have released the eBooks for both of them. They are in both Kindle and ePub versions (Barnes & Noble and the Apple iTunes store).

* I’ll hold the thought of seeing you on my Facebookpage,if you’re not already there. You’ll love the conversations and Seth quotes, to say nothing of meeting more than 2,300 Sethies in one place, lol!


*
And do visit me on Twitter at Lynda Madden Dahl and Seth Network International. Each day on each account I post one or two Seth quotes about anything that grabs my attention that day. It's fun and a great way to keep the material focused in our minds.

............................................................................................................................................................................

So that’s it for today, Seth friends. I send you my sincere warmest wishes for terrific creations and many happy moments. Talk to you again down the road!

Dateline June 1, 2015: HERE COMES SUMMER...and MORE SETH!

Hi Seth Friends, Lynda Dahl here...

Welcome to the upcoming lazy, hazy, crazy days of summerin the Western hemisphere, anyway! Today I’d like to not only offer you Sethian news, but leave you with some marvelous thoughts from Seth on how to change our world for the better. Can’t hear enough about that from our friend, and lots to think about over soda and pretzels and beer, while wishing summer could always be here.

(I sincerely hope most of you are old enough to pick up on Nat King Cole’s song, otherwise I sound like a really odd duck, LOL!)

Okay, for starters, folks, here’s the latest news from the world of Seth, and we'll kick it off with big news from our friends in Taiwan about a major world conference coming this year.

Now let's hear it for our Seth friends in Europe, with great thanks to Maurizio Vogrig, co-founder of the publishing firm Seth Verlag and a long-time integral part of the European Seth community, who keeps us abreast of the latest happenings in that part of the world.
                                                         *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *
During the last few months, we’ve been pretty active here in Europe.

On May 8, on occasion of Jane Roberts’ birthday, we released number 22 of our Seth Newsletter which appears more or less twice a month and includes either original Seth texts or articles written on the Seth material by Joe Mancini, Lynda Dahl and others.

At the moment, we are proofreading the galleys of the German version of vol. 1 of Jane Roberts’ The Personal Sessions – an absolutely fascinating and astounding text that all of the other earlier Seth books put in a truly new perspective. We are aiming for a publishing release early this summer.

Further, there's another Seth Conference in the pipeline. It's being presented by the Group of Seth Friends, the latest in their offerings from 1982 on, when they started organizing yearly international meetings either in Switzerland, Germany or France, where at times around 120 participants show up for a whole weekend.

The conference will take place from October 23 to 25 near Pforzheim in Germany. The central theme of this Seth weekend will be "Transitions,“ and the organizing committee is again looking forward to welcome personally many Seth readers from all over the world.

We also have translated into German and Italian and also published Lynda Dahl’s beautiful Ten Thousand Whispers, and the readers love that book. The German title is Tausendfaches Flüstern, the Italian Diecimila Sussurri. But now there’s also another Lynda book on the German market: vol. 1 of Living a Save Universe (Lebe dein sicheres Universum), and vol. 2 will be out soon.

Thanks, Seth friends!

And a quick hello from Denny Hall and friends at Seth Network Canada...

Hello from Seth Network Canada!  A while ago, Seth Network International floated the idea of having a national Seth group within various countries, and it's a great idea that makes it easy for those within a country to connect. In Canada, we are now up to 50 members
and counting!  You're most welcome to join us, Canadian or not. :-)

(From the editor: There are now seven country affiliates associated with SNI. To see them, as well as local international Seth groups, please go to our website at Seth Groups/Networks.)
__________________________________________________________________________________

And here's Ejay Jamb with an update on the fastest growing Seth Network group in the world -Seth Network Australia!

G’day Seth readers! It’s been a busy and rewarding year for Seth Network Australia, which started 2015 at full speed and continues to expand at an amazing rate. We will celebrate our first birthday in June, with over four hundred members to date and many new people from all over the worldnot just Australiacontinuing to join every day.

It has become a marvelous forum for lively, even humorous and playful discussion, debate and sharing of personal stories. Members help and support each other by imparting their own perspectives and experiences, often triggering understanding and solutions for others in similar situations or with common problems.

Our webinars are also building in numbers, with increased attendance each month. We now have members joining in from other countries, including the United States, Germany, Denmark and Argentina, as well as the locals. Admittedly it helps if you can understand and speak English, or something approximating it, like us Aussies.

On another note, I traveled to California in March and attended the California Seth Conference, meeting up with many Facebook friends in the flesh. New and old Sethies alike connected; yakking and laughing for two days of great presentations, interesting stories and excellent food. It was a most fulfilling experience for me and I came away enriched with renewed vigor to continue sharing Seth’s work. Many thanks go to Lawrence Davidson and company for all their efforts. And best wishes, with the planning of your 2016 conference. You guys ROCK!

Well, this was meant as a quick note to let you all know how it’s going here down under. Until next time or our paths cross on Seth Network Australia, my best to you all. And do come join us on Facebook, where many great discussions take place!
__________________________________________________________________________________

Okay, folks, a quick update on the latest addition to our Seth Network International website...

As mentioned in my last newsletter, a new section has been added to our SNI site. It’s called Lynda’s Blog, and at present there are 19 entries posted, the latest being Seth and Seeking Trust. And tying in with this one, another on trust that may be of interest to you is called Seth and How Trust Changes Everything. - Thanks, guys!

SETH ON CHANGING OUR WORLD FOR THE BETTER

* ...Many people want to change the world for the better, but that ideal seems so awe-inspiring that they think they can make no headway unless they perform some great acts of daring or heroism, or envision themselves in some political or religious place of power, or promote an uprising or rebellion.

* You will often condone quite reprehensible acts if you think they were committed for the sake of a greater good.

* The ideal seems so remote and unreachable that sometimes any means, however reprehensible, eventually can seem justified.

* To change the world for the better, you must begin by changing your own life. There is no other way.

* Every time you affirm the rightness of your own existence, you help others. Your mental states are part of the planet's psychic atmosphere.

* For a start you will acknowledge your existence in the framework of nature, and to do that you must recognize the vast cooperative processes that connect each species with each other one.
__________________________________________________________________________________

* You begin by honoring life in all of its forms.

* You begin by accepting your own worth as a part of the universe, and by granting every other being that same recognition.

* You begin by changing your thoughts toward your contemporaries, your country, your family, your working companions.

* You cannot love your neighbor, in fact, until you love yourself, and if you believe that it is wrong to love yourself, then you are indeed unable to love anyone else.

* If the ideal of loving your neighbor like yourself seems remote, you will at least absolutely refrain from killing your neighbor – and your neighbor is any other person on the face of the planet.

* In a manner of speaking, you must be a practicing idealist if you are to remain a true idealist for long.
__________________________________________________________________________________

* You must take small practical steps, often when you would prefer to take giant ones – but you must move in the direction of your ideals through action.

* Otherwise you will feel disillusioned, or powerless, or sure, again, that only drastic, highly un-ideal methods will ever bring about the achievement of a given ideal state or situation.

* Developing your own abilities, whatever they may be, exploring and expanding your experience of selfhood, gives life a sense of purpose, meaning, and creative excitement...

* When you do not take any steps toward an ideal position, then your life does lack excitement.

* You become depressed. You might become an idealist in reverse, so that you find a certain excitement in contemplating the occurrence of natural disasters, such as earthquakes.

* You may begin to concentrate your attention on such activities. You may contemplate the end of the world instead, but in either case you are propelled by a sense of personal frustration...
__________________________________________________________________________________

* Each person alive helps paint the living picture of civilization as it exists at any given time, in your terms. Be your own best artist.

* Your thoughts, feelings and expectations are like the living brush strokes with which you paint your corner of life's landscape.

* If you do your best in your own life, then you are indeed helping to improve the quality of all life.

* Your thoughts are as real as snowflakes or raindrops or clouds. They mix and merge with the thoughts of others, to form man's livingscape, providing the vast mental elements from which physical events will be formed.

* I would like each of my readers to be a practicing idealist...

* If you do this, your life will automatically be provided with excite­ment, natural zest and creativity, and those characteristics will be reflected outward into the social, political, economic, and scientific worlds.

* This is a challenge more than worth the effort. It is a chal­lenge that I hope each reader will accept.

* The practical ide­alist...When all is said and done, there is no other kind.


Dateline January 1, 2015: A JOYOUS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR, Sethies!

Another year under our collective belts, and a new one shining with dreams and possibilities awaits our creation. How very wise we are to have chosen this time and place, with Seth around to help us track a conscious path through our individual realities.

As we are well aware, some of our creations depend on our conscious goals, which many of us give significant thought to this time of the season. So it seems a no-brainer that we use what we can from the Seth material to help make this new year's journey as effortless and fulfilling as possible.

To help us along, I thought it might be useful to hear some of what Seth has to say about goals. So, here you are, a gift from Seth to kick off the new year, 2015:

    • * Your goals are usually conceptualized desires, and once formed they act in a fashion like magnets, drawing from those vast fields of interrelatedness the kinds of conditions best suited to their fulfillment.

    • * When the intellect is used properly, it thinks of a goal and automatically sets the body in motion toward it, and automatically arouses the other levels of communication unknown to it, so that all forces work together toward the achievement.

    • * When the intellect is improperly used, it is as if the intellect feels required to somehow know or personally direct all of those inner processes.

    • * Those desires of yours that are fitting to your nature will automatically come to pass, unless you block them through disadvantageous beliefs. They cannot be blocked by others. If they seem to be blocked by others, that assumption is incorrect, based on ignorance.

    •  * Even when nothing shows in physical reality, all the proper circumstances and conditions are being brought together. Because the organization is so different, you must forget cause and effect, for things fall into place almost in a circular fashion.

    • * The intellect alone cannot bring about the fulfillment of those goals. It must count upon those other properties that it does indeed set in motion – that spontaneous array of inner complexity, that orderly magic.

    • * The vital word is ease or effortlessness. Say, “That is not my realm. I will leave the solution to that problem or goal where it belongs.”

    • * The power of the universe is a personal one. When your intent is clear, events fall into place, from the most minute to the most momentous, that bring your desire to pass.

These quotes are not only clarifying, they're reassuring, aren't they? Gotta love and appreciate our Seth. And if you want more, more, more on what he says on goals, here are two blogs from our SNI website that will give you incredible knowledge and assistance in creating what you’d like to experience:

* What Would Seth Say to Me Today About Goals?

* Seth and Your Personal Goals
.....................................................................................................................................................

And now on to some other things you may be interested in:


SETH'S NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS
It just would not be a proper New Year if someone didn't post Seth's resolutions. So, we are assuring the continuation of a wonderful tradition by providing an article that contains the four resolutions that Seth suggested to Jane and Rob on January 1, 1979. They provide a compelling reminder for all of us that one's focus creates, and that we can change our lives by changing our minds. While they get special mention on New Year’s Day, we should also remember that they are good reading on many other occasions throughout the year. These timeless gems can be found at Seth's New Year's Resolutions. Enjoy!

.....................................................................................................................................................

LYNDA'S BLOG

A new addition has been added to our SNI site since the last newsletter, folks. It’s called Lynda’s Blog (catchy, don’t you think? :-) ), and at present there are 12 articles posted, the plan being to add content every week or two. The latest is the one noted above, Seth and Your Personal Goals, but in case you missed it—and even though it’s after the fact—you might also enjoy Christmas With Seth. Ho Ho Ho!
.....................................................................................................................................................


SETH FORUMS

Good friend, terrific IT brain and SNI webmaster, Jeff Kiefer is also the owner of membership-free Seth Forums, the go-to place for in-depth interactive conversations about the material we all know and love. There are about 930 Sethies currently on the forum, and the good news from Jeff is that he’s not only created a whole new look and organization, he's also  added more features, which include, among other things, mobile and tablet (multiple device) accessibility. So if you’re into lively discussions as a participant or simply as a listener, do visit Jeff’s great site.

An aside note: I cannot overemphasize the importance of Jeff as part of the SNI team. He and I work hand-in-hand, at times on a daily basis, and are equally dedicated to the Seth material and expressing it in multiple forms and formats. I have no idea how SNI would function without Jeff’s crucial work, suggestions and advice. GO Jeff! With many thanks!

SETH IN EUROPE - A BRIEF HISTORY: by MAURIZIO VOGRIG

In 1979 the first German edition and translation of a Seth book – Seth Speaks – appeared in Europe and soon after, in 1981, the Group of Seth Friends was founded in Switzerland, and sent out its first Seth magazine in German. In other European countries, such as in France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands there were various Seth “contact persons”, and Seth books in a few other languages were also translated and published.

However, the main focus seemed to be concentrated in the German-speaking parts of Europe, i.e. Germany, Austria and Switzerland. From 1982 onwards, the Group of Seth Friends started to organize yearly international meetings either in Switzerland, Germany or France, where at times around 120 participants showed up for a whole weekend.

A few years later though, with the appearance of so many other new esoteric and new age authors, the classic Seth books slowly began to fade out of print. But by 1999 a new enthusiasm started and a new area began, as the Seth-Verlag was founded in Switzerland by myself and Ursula Lang, with the sole purpose to translate and publish untranslated Seth and Seth-related work.

So far the Seth-Verlag has published more than 20 books either by Jane Roberts, Susan Watkins, Lynda Madden Dahl or Nancy Ashley; it also publishes its own regularly appearing Seth Newsletter.

There is a small but steadily growing interest again in the German-speaking world for this all-encompassing philosophy and for these great books, mostly due to the efforts of the Seth-Verlag. At the same time, the activities of the Group of Seth Friends have continued and yearly conferences take place each October in southern Germany, weekends with many interesting topics, guests and often also new discoveries, but always dedicated to the Seth material and the Seth philosophy.

Regarding the Seth material in Italy, it has been lying rather dormant for the last 10 years, but in cooperation with the Swiss Seth-Verlag, Italy will make a fresh start: In a few weeks, Lynda Madden Dahl’s Ten Thousand Whispers will be published for the first time in Italian (Italian title: Diecimila Sussurri), and our friends in Rome are working on a new Seth Internet presence.

There is still plenty to translate and publish and we are looking forward to it – the Seth material is for each and every one of us who cherishes these texts and for the world as a whole of great importance. So let’s go on with this labor of love!

.....................................................................................................................................................

COUNTRY-AFFILIATED SISTER GROUPS TO SNI
As you may recall, SNI has independent sister groups in various countries around the world. Since we have so many new Seth readers on this list, I thought it would be good time to re-introduce the countries to you, with the hope that if your home country is listed, you may choose to check them out. Actually, most of them welcome folks from ALL countries into their fold, so your options are wide open. Just click on their name and you’ll be taken to our SNI site where you can learn more about each of them. – Oh, and several of them have added some personal notes here for you about their group, too.

     SETH NETWORK AUSTRALIA  -  Hosts Ejay Jamb and Glen Payne

Seth Network Australia has enjoyed wonderful support since its inception in June 2014. We currently have fifty Australian members, and to our delight, one hundred and thirty international members. An important step in our progress was the decision to convert our Facebook page to a "public group".  This has allowed members to initiate their own discussion topics and stimulates conversations that are evocative and thought provoking.

Ejay provides a theme each week and posts applicable Seth passages each day.
Our group also enjoys a lively and fun range of activities, such as psychic perception exercises, dream meetings and sharing personal interpretations and experiences. Underpinning our Facebook group is a program of monthly webinars and meet-up groups. These provide an opportunity for Seth readers to converse with each other verbally, or face to face.

 
Also, we've received many requests to organize an Australian Seth Conference and are currently working toward creating that outcome in 2015. We also aim to strengthen our links with other Seth groups around the globe and expand our support and promotion of Seth-based educational activities.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has become involved with Seth Network Australia and to let you know how much we enjoy being part of the international Seth community.

      SETH NETWORK CANADA  -  Host Denny Hall
Each nation has its own idea climate, so a smaller group for Canada allows us to connect along those lines, more easily get to know the smaller number of members in the group, and be responsive to the individuals in the group--as what it posted is, of course, no coincidence. Here's what four members had to say about SNC:

"[T]he posts are daily reminders that helps it all 'stick'."

"Love knowing that other Canadians are learning and exploring Seth. It's always good to 'meet' like minded people.  Discovering that so many people [in my country] are interested in alternative concepts makes me less hesitant to share Seth's ideas with people who don't know about the books.  Hoping that in time the group will grow and there will be a group in my area for discussion."

"I also belong to the Seth Network Australia and what I like is hearing from others all over the world talk about the Seth Material and how they are using it in their lives.  I'm in America and it's important to me to hear what other countries are saying."

"[E]very single day I read and think about the Seth words that are posted in this group, and they both ground me and excite me about my life.  I am here, reading the postings every day, and it makes a real difference in my busy life.  Don't take my 'silence' here to mean I am not interested. Indeed, these postings are LOUD in my world."

     SETH NETWORK ENGLAND  -  Host Dave Marshall

Dear friends, I hope you had a wonderful 2014, and I look forward to connecting with you online in 2015 and at the first UK Seth Network Conference (details below).

In 2015, Seth Network England hopes to inspire, educate and support your journey into great value fulfillment and ensure we have some fun along the way. As always, I am keen to share these amazing ideas as much as possible, and look forward to meeting new members and connecting with old Seth friends. Please join us on Facebook at Seth Network England, and also you’re most welcome to become a personal Facebook friend of mine, too.

                            

UK Seth Network Conference Details

AND A FEW PERSONAL NOTES:


* I’m pleased to say my seventh Seth-based book,Living a Safe Universe, Vol. 3: A Bookfor Seth Readersis doing very well. As many of you know, the trilogy is focused on how we can learn to live in trust and safety in our individual realities by focusing on certain Sethian knowledge and an in-depth use of the moment point within simultaneous time. For a quick introduction to all of my books and what some Sethies say about them, do visit my books' website.


* I’ll hold the thought of seeing you on my Facebook page,if you’re not already there. You’ll love the conversations and Seth quotes, to say nothing of meeting more than 1,900 Sethies in one place, lol!

* And do visit me on Twitter at Lynda Madden Dahl and Seth Network International. Each day on each account I post one or two Seth quotes about anything that grabs my attention that day. It's fun and a great way to keep the material focused in our minds.


.....................................................................................................................................................

Okay, folks, it looks like it's time to sign off for today. I'll close with a terrific poem written by one of the heads of SN Australia, Ejay Jamb, a most creative, clever and funny Sethie. You'll enjoy her sense of humor about Seth, I'm sure!

A very Happy New Year from the beaches of Southern California to your part of the world, my friends! Let's knock 'um dead in 2015!

Lynda

A NEW DIRECTION  -  by Ejay Jamb

I got a new direction
from a book I read,
it suggested ‘thought correction’
the author said ‘I’m dead’!

“Seth”, he said his name was;
he dictated loud and clear
about the inner cosmos
and making things appear.

This stuff’s complicated
I’m in way over my head,
my brain was saturated
the synapses overfed!

“Examine the contents of your mind”
Seth advised his baffled readers,
I was heavily inclined
to drink some margheritas!

Snap out of it, I thought
get your head on straight,
you’re not thinking like you ought
that’s how you create.

I read those books again
laughing with relief,
I didn’t have to strain
it was only a belief.




Dateline October 12, 2014: A Journey Through Our Oneness, Sethies!


Hello Seth friends! From California to wherever you live in this big, bold world, it's good to be back with you again. Surprisingly, there's very little news to share at this time, so today we'll get to take a nice leisurely stroll through the memory lane of the Seth/Jane books instead, focusing on one subject exclusively. And that subject is...a drum roll, please!...ONENESS.

Okay, before we go there, I do want to mention a couple newsy things. First is that the seventh annual California Seth Conference (always held in San Mateo) has finalized its 2015 dates: March 7-8. Do check out their site for the latest and greatest on the upcoming event, folks.

And a few personal newsy notes:

* I’m thrilled to say my seventh Seth-based book,Living a Safe Universe, Vol. 3: A Bookfor Seth Readersis now available in Kindle, Apple and Barnes/Noble eBooks. As many of you know, the trilogy is focused on how we can learn to live in trust and safety in our individual realities by focusing on certain Sethian knowledge and an in-depth use of the moment point within simultaneous time. * I’ll hold the thought of seeing you on my Facebook page,if you’re not already there. You’ll love the conversations and Seth quotes, to say nothing of meeting over 1,750 Sethies in one place, lol!

* And do visit me on Twitter at Lynda Madden Dahl and Seth Network International. Each day on each account I post one or two Seth quotes about anything that grabs my attention that day. It's fun and a great way to keep the material focused in our minds.

* And lastly, I now have 30 blog articles posted onAmber-Allen'swebsite under Seth Material, and another will be up soon. (Amber-Allen, as you may recall, is the current publisher of the original Seth books.)

Okay folks, that's it for the announcements, now on to this most fascinating subject of Oneness...

.................................................................................................................


If I may, I’ll first summarize some of what Seth says about the beginning of physical reality and how it led to our “oneness,” as opposed to being “one,” and what it means to us today. Then I’ll follow with several Seth quotes that tie it all together.

So, here we go…

We are the mental progeny of All That Is. Before the beginning of physical reality, Seth says All That Is existed within subjectivity as an omnipotent creative source, which contained within itself an infinity of all possible creations, all reflections of its own dreams, thoughts, feelings and moods.

In a massive divine inspiration, All That Is saw in a flash that these, its mental progeny, could gain deeper fulfillment of their own through the freedom that objectivity would bring them. And objectivity would necessitate a state where its progeny were free to experience their own creations.

And in an explosive flash, worlds were created out of subjectivity and into objectivity. As Seth says, it was the triumphant breakthrough into another kind of being.

We are the mental progeny of All That Is, then, existing objectively with full freedom, yet still within All That Is. While we are All That Is, we also hold the freedom of our individuation, the freedom not to be one any longer, but to still share a oneness with the other mental progeny of All That Is.

And that oneness, while not translating to a literal one except within the subjective state of All That Is, means we share deep and abiding knowledge of oneness with nature and cooperation between all aspects and species within physical reality.

Some of the Seth quotes below reveal how the emerging ego of the newly individualized and freed mental progeny needed to be reassured of its own unfettered development; so how it initially refused, for its own purposes, to accept the idea of oneness.

But cooperation itself was always a part of the mental progeny, a built-in aspect that came from All That Is as a stepping stone and a tie that would eventually lead back to a feeling of oneness. That is, eventually oneness would have to be addressed again, but always within the acknowledged individuation of mental progeny already established.

We mental progeny were never meant, then, to eschew knowledge of our oneness, our interconnectedness, forever. As Seth says below, “On the contrary, he will be swept along in a gestalt of comprehension in which he realizes his own ONENESS with All That Is.”

And that is where we are today, Seth readers. Thanks to Jane, Rob and Seth, we comprehend, accept and relish the oneness that enfolds us, yet we realize our individuality, our individuation, precludes us, while in objectivity, to suggest we are one in the traditional 'spiritual' sense of the word.

I will sign off here, my friends, with a marvelous opening comment by Jane, followed by several Seth quotes for further digestion.

Love to you all, in friendship and oneness!

Lynda Dahl

..............................................................................................................

Jane Roberts: "Thank God that some god managed to disentangle itself from such psychic oneness, if that's what it's supposed to be. Thank God that some god loved itself enough to diversify, to create itself in a million different forms; to multiply, to explode its being inward and outward. Thank God that some god loved its own individuality enough to endow the least and the most, the greatest and the smallest, with its own unique being.”

The “Unknown” Reality, Vol. 2, Appendix

..............................................................................................................

“I hope to acquaint each of you with the inherent ONENESS of the inside and outside realities, to give you a glimpse of your own infinite nature even within the bounds of your creaturehood—to help you see the god-stuff in the man-stuff. In other terms, this can help you see the potentials of your species and break down the barriers of limiting thoughts. I would like to change your ideas of human nature. To some extent this will entail humanizing your idea of divinity. But oddly enough, if that is done you will end up seeing the divinity in man.”

The “Unknown” Reality, Vol. 1, Session 696

………………………………………………………………………………..


“The earth venture is cooperative. The slain beast is tomorrow's hunter. In terms of ego consciousness, however, there were stages of growth; and the god concepts that spoke of ONENESS with nature were not those that served the ego's purposes in the line of development as you understand it.”

The “Unknown” Reality, Vol. 1, Session 687
………………………………………………………………………………..


“While it [ego consciousness] recognized its deep ONENESS with the earth and all creatures, it could not at the same time develop those abilities of specialization and its own particular unique focus. The growth of separate tribal cultures, for example, and later of nations, could emerge only through a sense of separation, and a certain kind of alienation. This, however, allowed for a diversity that could not otherwise be achieved under the accepted conditions.”

The “Unknown” Reality, Vol. 1, Session 690
………………………………………………………………………………..


“The formation of different tribes allowed man to behave cooperatively, in small numbers. This meant that those on the outside were selectively ignored, considered strangers. At that point, consciousness in those terms could not handle focused concentration, the emergence of ego consciousness, and simultaneously experience powerful feelings of ONENESS with other large groups. It was struggling for individuation. Individuation, however, was dependent upon the cooperation of individuals.”

The “Unknown” Reality, Vol. 1, Session 686
………………………………………………………………………………..


“In the beginning in those terms, man's emerging consciousness needed the freedom to disperse itself, to become different, to originate bases for various characteristics, and assert individuations. By Christ's time, however, some principle of unity was necessary by which this diversification would also experience a sense of unity and feel its ONENESS.


“Christ was the symbol of man's emerging consciousness, holding within himself the knowledge of man's potential.”

The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 674

………………………………………………………………………………..

“The ego is an offshoot of the conscious mind, so to speak. The conscious mind is like a gigantic camera with the ego directing the view and the focus. Left alone, various portions of the identity rise and form the ego, de-group and reform, all the while maintaining a marvelous spontaneity and yet a sense of ONENESS.”

The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 615
………………………………………………………………………………..

“A strong belief in such opposing forces [good and evil] is highly detrimental, however, for it prevents an understanding of the facts—the facts of inner unity and of ONENESS, of interconnections and of cooperation.

“There are some individuals who have never experienced during physical life that sense of harmony and ONENESS in which such opposing factors merge. Such individuals have many stages to go through following transition, and usually many other physical lives ‘ahead’ of them.”

Seth Speaks, Session 546
………………………………………………………………………………..

“Young children in particular still possess a feeling of ONENESS with the universe, and with all of life, even as they begin to separate themselves at certain levels from life’s wholeness to go about the delightful task. Seeing themselves as separate and apart from all other individuals, they still retain an inner comprehension and a memory of having once experienced a ONENESS with life as a whole.”

The Way Toward Health, Chapter 7
………………………………………………………………………………..

“Natural "mystical" experience, unclothed in dogma, is the original religious therapy that is so often distorted in ecclesiastical organizations, but it represents man's innate recognition of his ONENESS with the source of his own being, and of his own experience.”

The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 640

………………………………………………………………………………..

“I want to make this clearer, however. Suppose that you suddenly understand the concept of ONENESS with the universe, and that this inner sensing of concepts is to be used. … You would not think of what it was like to be a bird. You would momentarily be one.”

Seth, Dreams and Projections of Consciousness, Chapter 19

………………………………………………………………………………..


“All personal contact with the multidimensional God, all legitimate moments of mystic consciousness, will always have a unifying effect. They will not, therefore, isolate the individual involved, but instead will enlarge his perceptions until he will experience the reality and uniqueness of as many other aspects of reality of which he is capable.


“He will feel, therefore, less isolated and less set apart. He will not regard himself as being above others because of the experience. On the contrary he will be swept along in a gestalt of comprehension in which he realizes his own ONENESS with All That Is.

Seth Speaks, Session 561



Dateline June 17, 2014: News From Around the Seth World, Folks


"Death, I think, is such an exploration; assured by our anatomy, for all of life is a preparation for it. Death is our assurance that we won't be caught in a dimensional dilemma, trapped in a three-dimensional house with no way out of it. Granted, we choose the house and terms of rental. But no residence, however grand, could contain such free-ranging consciousness for long."

— Jane Roberts, Psychic Politics, Chapter 26
........................................................................................................................

Hello Seth friends, I'm so sorry to say in late May the Seth world lost two very important people who contributed significantly to its progress and growth through the years.

* Many of you are aware of Tam Mossman, the editor of the original Prentice-Hall Seth/Jane books and close friend of Jane and Rob's mentioned in the books many times. Tam played a key role in getting Prentice-Hall to initially accept the books and then fought for Jane and Rob all the way over the years. Sometimes we tend to forget how difficult it was in the day for Tam to accomplish what he did with a body of work which didn't fit the norm for a more mainstream publisher like Prentice-Hall. He kept a low personal profile with the Seth world, but his tenacity and belief in Seth and Jane made their work available to millions. We owe him a great debt of gratitude and many thanks. Go Tam!
           - Seth: "Death, at first, feels like psychological time. There is a period when you retain the idea of camouflage time before full freedom enters in, and a small lapse before orientation is possible."

* A friend to many of us and loved by all who knew her, Dr. Helen Walker was most famous for her founding in 1984 of the 16-year-running Rocky Mountain Seth Conference. However, even before RMSC, Helen was the founder of the Esoteric Truth Center in 1968, which was based on the metaphysical new thought principles of Dr. Ernest Holmes. Helen was a dedicated Seth reader and a featured speaker at many conferences besides her own. Her ability to get to the heart of many subjects, and to coalesce them into an understanding of the whole was what made her a master teacher. Her daughter, Nancy Walker, is as involved as Helen was in the world of Seth, and our sincere condolences go to Nancy and her sisters.
         - Seth: "All of my deaths would have been adventures had I realized what I now know." -  "At death you merely cease to construct the physical image. There is no great mystery here."

My Seventh Seth-based Book is Now Here!

I’m thrilled to say my
Living a Safe Universe, Vol. 3: A Bookfor SethReadersis now published! As many of you know, the trilogy is focused on how we can learn to live in trust and safety in our individual realities by focusing on certain Sethian knowledge and an in-depth use of the moment point within simultaneous time. In Vol. 3, we broaden our knowledge of the safe universe even further with the introduction of Framework 2 and the greater reality from which all other frameworks spring, and by so doing more clearly understand our role and participation in the safe universe and our intrinsic security within it.

While I have received so many fine reviews from Seth readers, here’s one for your perusal now...

“Lynda’s three volumes of Livinga SafeUniverse are a true tour de force through the Seth concepts, and offer even the long-time Seth reader a new perspective on the material and a great motivation to finally shift from a theoretical to a practical level of understanding. The selected Seth quotes and Lynda’s comments present a captivating mix that not only lead deeper into Seth’s philosophy, but trigger a comprehension that is a prerequisite for a successful implementation of Seth’s ideas into one’s life. Lynda herself is a great teacher and true ambassadress for the Seth Material!”
          — Maurizio Vogrig, Co-Founder of Seth-Verlag, the Swiss Seth Publishing House; Co-Translator of Books by Jane Roberts, Sue Watkins, and Lynda Dahl; Board Member of the Swiss & German Seth Association

(P.S. For you German readers,Seth-Verlag recently published my book, Ten Thousand Whispers: A Guide toConscious Creation in German, and will be releasing all the others in a timely manner.)

If you’d like to read some of what is in
Living-Vol. 3 on Amazon, please click here. It is in our SethNetwork Bookstore, too. (The eBook will be released next month.) And one other thing: please click here to see its Facebook page and further information on it.

More of My Projects...

* One 'project' I launched in January is on my Facebook page, and I call it Living the Moment Point with Seth. Each day I post several short comments by Seth that are meant as daily reminders that living the moment point means using it as our method of perception. It means shaping our thinking around simultaneous time instead of linear time’s past and future. And since that’s the way creation happens anyway, it gives us our best shot at CONSCIOUS creation and safety within our individual realities. One of the most difficult tasks we face when we start to seriously work with the moment point is building and keeping our focus. So this project uses these daily Seth comments to help with that focus and shape our new thinking. Would love to have you join us!* Don't forget to visit me on Twitter at Lynda Madden Dahl and Seth Network International. Each day on each account I post one or two Seth quotes about anything that grabs my attention that day. It's fun and a great way to keep the material focused in our minds. Hope to see you there!

* And lastly, I now have 23 blog articles posted on Amber-Allen's website under Seth Material, and another will be up soon. (Amber-Allen, as you may recall, is the current publisher of the original Seth books.)
.........................................................................................................................

Okay, guys, looks like that’s it for today before I turn it over to Seth for one last comment. With psychic fingers crossed, I’ll hold the thought of seeing you on Facebook, if you’re not already there. You’ll love the conversations and Seth quotes, to say nothing of meeting almost 1,600 Sethies in one place, lol! My sincere good wishes to you all, as always.

Warmly, Lynda

Seth: "Many of my readers, or their offspring, will be involved in a new dimension of selfhood in which consciousness is fully explored and the potentials of the soul uncovered. Human capabilities will be seen as what they are, and a great new period of development will occur... The species will actually move into a new kind of selfhood.

Dateline March 10, 2014: Rock on, Sethies! Lots to talk about...


Hello Seth Friends!

Lynda Dahl here, back to spend some quality reality creation time with you. :-) It's been awhile, so there's a plethora of interesting items to bring to your attention from many folks aligned with Seth Network. And how fine is that?!

And to kick us off today and get our juices flowing, here's a poem written by one of my Facebook friends, Jonathan Orchard, which reminds us of that ol' rockin' power of the PRESENT!

THE PRESENT HAS THE POWER
If you want change within your life
To ease away the friction
Make a list of your beliefs
And find the contradictions

For when you find what you believe
You find the reason why
It’s a very strong belief
But don’t sit down and cry

Don’t give your power to the past
And say what’s wrong with me
To focus on the bad you see
Repeats the history

Just close your eyes to time and space
And use imagination
Replacing all the old beliefs
With ones of new creation

And know that when you give of time
To change what you believe
You change the future and the past
And all that you perceive

Reality will change you see
And faster by the hour
For now you know along the way
The Present Has The Power

- Jonathan Orchard (1996)


Thank you, Jonathan! You do indeed rock!

Okay, folks, on to some of those interesting tidbits for you...
............................................................................................

The Amazing Mary Dillman's CD Contribution!

From my good friend Mary Dillman comes a great new Seth/Jane treasure for our media libraries, which you'll read about below. I'm so happy for Mary and appreciative of the research she's done over the years, starting with the Seth/Jane material housed at Yale's Sterling Memorial Library and expanding way beyond it into tracking down non-Yale material and friends of Jane and Rob's for personal interviews...and much more.
 
Late in the 1990s Mary left her secure job and life in St. Paul and moved to New Haven (the home of Yale), where she became the eyes and ears of Seth readers worldwide, looking for behind-the-scene and never-before-published material and info around the Seth phenomenon—all pro bono.

Mary took an incredible step into trust when she left St. Paul, one also laced with enormous courage. The landscape of today's Seth world would not be the same without her very significant contributions, and that’s an understatement.

This is the first product Mary’s ever offered for sale, and only because it came about in a very magical way. It is sold on Amazon and soon will be in our SNI bookstore.

Here's its description:

      CD: Seth's Overview of the Seth Material from an audiotape made by Robert F. Butts, Jane Roberts and Seth on April 29, 1970. The previously unpublished session and Rob's background notes about the session are included with the CD. Length: 42 Minutes. $28.00. A German translation is available.

Bob Terrio Brings More Seth-Related Videos to Us!


Bob Terrio, producer of the videos "The Seth Phenomena" and "SethNet '97 - Highlights of the Elmira Conference," will soon be releasing several new video programs based on the Seth material!

A note first: For those not familiar with SethNet '97, it was our first of two SNI conferences in Elmira, and the first time ever Rob attended a Seth conference (it was his 78th birthday!). The second one, in '99, was Rob's 80th birthday, and he was with us again, the last time he attended any conference. (I closed our SNI doors months after the '99 get-together due to Stan's death; and we re-opened online in 2009.)

Okay, now here's what Bob has to say about his video plans:

"The first two are expanded versions of the SethNet '97 Conference video. One will be a Deluxe 4 DVD set containing nearly all of the footage (almost 8 hours) shot at this historic conference. The second will focus on the Conference footage of Rob Butts, Jane's ESP Class members and other highlights not previously released!

"Another video will feature a rare interview with Rob Butts conducted by Lynda Dahl and Stan Ulkowski in 1997. A fourth video will focus on Jane's ESP class and will feature Sue Watkins, Rob Butts, and other class members, including artist George Rhoads.

"And finally, we'll release a program titled 'Jane and Rob in Photos and Art,' featuring a personal tour of Jane and Rob's family photo album and some of their artwork with commentary by Rob Butts!"

Thanks, Bob! Watch for more information soon, folks, about how to order these unique and fascinating new videos.

Also, if you wish to contact Bob for copies of his first videos or questions on the new ones, his email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

California Seth Conference Scores Again!

A word to us from Lawrence Davidson, founder of this conference and an ESP class member, one week after the sixth annual get-together. (My, how time flies!)

"We've done it again. It was a wonderful conference. I thought something really nice came together—some kind of flow, camaraderie, something... I feel how people are really shifting into the application of the Seth material from many different perspectives. It is just nice to witness that this is a living, breathing 'path' and it is regenerating itself post Jane and Rob. Your efforts of course, have provided one of the key elements that is helping that happen.


"This year's conference really was about applying the Material. I do not feel that Seth wanted it to be only a mental exercise. I will keep guiding the conferences to be about how to apply it to our daily experiences.

"The conference continues to grow, and each year outshines the last. You can count on the next one, number seven, outshining the last. So visualize yourself being a part of this yearly family gathering, And attend next year for another shot of energy joy and community."

Seth Community Conference Makes Major Changes!

Here's Dana Beardshear, one of the founders of this conference, to remind us of the history of Colorado's long tradition of Seth conferences and to bring us an update on where they plan to take SCC this year.

"The Seth Community Conference is making some great new plans, best characterized by the title ~ 'Seth Family Reunion.' Sethies have been gathering in Colorado to learn as well as form & renew their relationships with other like minded people for over 20 years. Out of this has grown a 'family of choice.' We have come to realize that what makes this conference special is - time spent being with this family. We will have a more casually structured event to allow plenty of time for people to spend together chatting and enjoying each other. 
 
We will be enjoying our experience on a magnificent 6,000 acre retreat center - The Nature Place http://www.thenatureplace.net. Here people will find inspiration to commune with - themselves, each other and nature, ahhhhh! There will be several outdoor activities for people to participate in, watch or stay indoors, whatever your pleasure. We will likely have the entire center to ourselves! Based upon feedback from regular attendees we will have a great turnout! JOIN US!
 
We are also putting out a "call for speakers" who want to share at this gathering - please send your name and topic to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at your earliest convenience.

Coming! Nature of Personality Mobile App!

Amber-Allen Publishing, the current publisher of the original Seth books, is in the process of creating a mobile app for daily quotes taken from The Nature of Personal Reality. Some of the functionality they have already determined, but they're VERY interested in input from us Seth readers on this project. They've also set up a Facebook page called The Nature of Personal Reality which will be used to promote the daily quotes and app once everything is ready. And when will it "ready?" They say hopefully in six months, but being their best guestimate, we shouldn't hold them to it. So, enter any input you may have on their Amber-Allen Facebook page, and do make sure to "like" their brand-new The Nature of Personal Reality page so you're kept abreast of developments.
..........................................................................................

Update on My Projects:

* As many of you know, I've written two Living a Safe Universe books specifically for Seth readers, with a focus on how we can learn to live in trust and safety in our individual realities by focusing on the moment point in simultaneous time, instead of cause and effect in linear time. I'm now in the process of writing my third Living book, with hopes it will be ready for publication in a couple months. This time we'll be exploring an expanded view of our consciousness and, as always, what it means when translated into living safely within our individual contexts. I'm very excited about it! Will keep you posted on my writing progress.

* One 'project' I launched about a month ago is on my Facebook page, and I call it Living the Moment Point with Seth. Each day I post several short comments by Seth that are meant as daily reminders that living the moment point means using it as our method of perception. It means shaping our thinking around simultaneous time instead of linear time’s past and future. And since that’s the way creation happens anyway, it gives us our best shot at CONSCIOUS creation. One of the most difficult tasks we face when we start to seriously work with the moment point is building and keeping our focus. So this project uses these daily Seth comments to help with that focus and shape our new thinking. Would love to have you join us!

* Don't forget to visit me on Twitter at Lynda Madden Dahl and Seth Network International. Each day on each account I post one or two Seth quotes about anything that grabs my attention that day. It's fun and a great way to keep the material focused in our minds. Hope to see you there!

* And lastly, I now have 16 blog articles posted on Amber-Allen's website under Seth Material, and another will be up soon.

..........................................................................................

Well, my Seth friends, it looks like we've reached the end of today's newsletter. To sign off, let's turn the podium over to our favorite (and, okay, loveable) presence, with a quote that gives credence to why we, as a community of Seth readers, insist on coming together in many ways and forms:

“In physical reality, if you will forgive me, life is the name of the game—and the game is based upon value fulfillment. That means simply that each form of life seeks toward the fulfillment and unfolding of all of the capacities that it senses within its living framework, knowing that in that individual fulfillment each other species of life is also benefited.”
(Dreams, "Evolution," and Value Fulfillment, Vol. 2, Session 910)

Love and warm sentiments to you, as always,

Lynda


Dateline Septemember 9, 2013: Celebrating Jane's "Physical Universe" Breakthrough! Fifty Years and Growing...

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hi Seth Friends,

On September 9, 1963, a date in non-time, who would have guessed that our individual realities were about to grow into something greater than each of us? Simultaneous-time history was arranging itself for a breakthrough into physical reality, using this date and Jane Roberts as a "starting point" and with ramifications that would draw us together to explore world-changing ideas...with the purpose of changing the agreed-upon world reality.

Fifty years ago today was the day Jane had her first ever psychic experience. It happened spontaneously, without forethought or conscious knowledge that it was even possible, and set the stage for the emergence of Seth in December of that year.

What Jane brought us was brilliant. It is titled "The Physical Universe as Idea Construction," and for the next 20 years Seth built upon that body of work, fleshing out its reality-changing ideas in all of their complexity and grandeur.

I'll paste below the outline of the work, using Jane's definitions as applied to the physical universe and its basis in idea construction. Taken individually, each definition itself is a complete breakthrough in thought; taken collectively, they are breathtaking in their scope. Only something this original and mind-expanding has the possibility of bringing about true and lasting change to our world.

So to Jane and Seth, our deepest collective appreciation; and to each of us a reminder that our individual roles are crucial to the successful implementation of this revelatory moment point. For how does an ideal grow except through focus and intent? Even an ideal of this proportion? -- See you in another 50 years to reflect on how well we've done, folks. :-)


Okay, continuing now with the brief news of the day. First, I want to thank Masa Nishio, founder of Seth Network Japan, for bringing the idea for this celebration to my attention as a way of honoring Jane and what she undertook on all of our behaves on this historic linear time date. You're the greatest, Masa!

I also want to offer sincere thanks to Jeff Kiefer, the very gifted guy who initially programmed our Seth Network site in 2009 and is the creator of Seth Forums, the meeting place for hundreds of Sethies. This time my thanks is because he recently spent an inordinate amount of time – many long hours and days – updating the whole site's infrastructure to match the latest software developments. And within a week or so he'll have our layout, fonts and display revamped. You cannot know how much you are appreciated, Jeff! Without you...well, I shudder to think of SNI life without you.

News on my front is that as of this week my latest paperback book, Living a Safe Universe, Vol. 2: A Book for Seth Readers, is now on Amazon as a Kindle eBook also. Soon it will be available in Apple's iStore, too, I'm happy to say!

And big news for Seth Network: We're now on Twitter! Do please check us out, you tweeters, and you'll see daily Seth quotes to raise your spirits. And follow me on Twitter, too, at Lynda Madden Dahl, for even more inspiring stuff from our friendly spook. And while we're on the subject of social media, you're all invited to become my friend on Facebook at Lynda Madden Dahl and follow my Seth blogging. (Whew...it's been a very busy time around here.)

On Seth conferences, there are none that were brought to our attention for the rest of the year, although California Seth Conference is the first to announce their 2014 date as March 1-2 in the Bay area.

That's it for today, my friends. It's been a pleasure spending time with you remembering Jane's enormous contribution to our world reality. Seth and Rob's, too, of course. The mighty triad, lol! -- Take care, guys, and look forward to catching you again down the road.

Warmly,  Lynda


 The Physical Universe as Idea Construction: Definitions

    • ENERGY is the basis of the universe.
    • IDEAS are mental transformations of energy by an entity into physical reality.
    • IDEA CONSTRUCTIONS are transformations of ideas into physical reality.
    • SPACE is where our own idea constructions do not exist in the physical universe.
    • THE PHYSICAL BODY is the material construction of the entity's idea of itself under the properties of matter.
    • THE INDIVIDUAL is the part of the entity or whole self of which we are conscious in daily life. It is that part of the whole self which we are able to express or make "real" through our idea constructions on a physical level.
    • THE SUBCONSCIOUS is the threshold of an idea's emergence into the individual conscious mind. It connects the entity and the individual.
    • PERSONALITY is the individual's overall responses to ideas received and constructed. It represents the emotional coloration of the individual's ideas and constructions at any given "time."
    • EMOTIONS are the driving force that propel ideas into constructions.
    • INSTINCT is the minimum ability for idea constructions necessary for physical survival.
    • LEARNING is the potential for constructing new idea complexes from existing ideas.
    • IDEA COMPLEXES are groups of ideas formed together like building blocks to form more complicated constructions in physical reality.
    • COMMUNICATION is the interchange of ideas by entities on the energy nonphysical level.
    • ACTION is idea in motion. The senses are channels of projection by which ideas are projected outward to create the world of appearances.
    • ENVIRONMENT is the overall idea constructions with which an individual surrounds himself.
    • PHYSICAL TIME is the apparent lapse between the emergence of an idea in the physical universe (as a construction) and its replacement by another.
    • THE PAST is the memory of ideas that were but are no longer physical constructions.
    • THE PRESENT is the apparent point of any idea's emergence into physical reality.
    • THE FUTURE is the apparent lapse between the disappearance of one idea construction and its replacement by another in physical reality.
    • PSYCHOLOGICAL TIME is the apparent lapse between the conception of ideas.
    • AGING is the effect upon an idea construction of the properties of matter of which the construction is composed.
    • GROWTH is the formation of an idea construction toward its fullest possible materialization following the properties of matter.
    • SLEEP is the entity's relative rest from idea construction except the minimum necessary for physical survival.
    • THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE is the sum of individual idea constructions.
    • MEMORY is the ghost image of "past" idea constructions. (Seth, Dreams and Projections of Consciousness, Chapter 1)

Dateline July 10, 2013: Seth Networks Around the World!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Friends!

Well, I'm back much sooner than I thought when I sent my last newsletter. Hope all is well in your part of the world, and I especially want to reach out to Latin America and Scotland – which is, in fact, the main purpose of this note.

As you may know, several years ago Masa Nishio launched Seth Network Japan, a sister organization to SNI. Our good news today on the sister organization front is twofold:

* Martha Lobos has just announced Seth Network Latinoamerica! They are in Buenos Aires and are already in contact with Seth readers in Uruguay. If you live anywhere in Latin America, check out their listing in our SNI directory. And do contact Martha from that page and she'll tell you more about the purpose and dream of their network. Go Seth Network Latinoamerica!

* And just as I was starting to load this newsletter for mailing, I got a note from my friend Andy Lawson in Arbroath, Angus, Scotland, saying he has made the decision to launch Seth Network Scotland! Because of the late breaking news, Andy has not yet set up a listing in SNI's directory for his network, nor has he created a Facebook page for it. However, you can reach him at his personal Facebook page and at this email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Good to have you and your group on board, Andy! Welcome!

Interested in Becoming a Sister Group to Seth Network International?

To those of you Seth groups who may have an interest in becoming a sister Seth Network in your country or world area, there is nothing "official" to do from our end. SN Latinoamerica came into being because SNI had some Latin American folks ask us about Seth books published in that area and where to buy them, and Martha's group seemed like the one which would know. Then she and I started talking about the possibility of her launching an independent sister network like Masa did for Japan. When it was finalized, I then posted the news on my Seth-based Facebook page and Andy became very interested for Scotland. And as they say, the rest is history. :-)

From SNI's standpoint, sister organizations to SNI are very helpful, because when questions arise about Seth groups in various countries or questions are asked that we cannot always answer, such as what Seth books are available in specific countries and where they can most easily be found, we can contact Seth Network X-Country and let them take over correspondence with the questioner. And as the years go on, questions of all sorts from our international friends are happening more frequently.

If you're interested, one issue for you might be finding Seth readers if you don't already have a group in place. To help out, we'll send you a list from SNI's email database of readers from your country (if any), and you could place notices on stores' bulletin boards and certainly use the Internet via a website and social media (especially Facebook) to find members. And we'll soon be highlighting the SethNet X-Countries on our SNI Facebook page as well as our SNI website, too. That way, those who visit SNI will easily see who best to contact from their respective home country.

So, if you're interested, definitely let me know! And I'm sure I haven't answered all questions, so don't hesitate to ask.

A New Book by Moi

I'm very pleased to say my new book under construction that I mentioned to you previously has now been published! It's called Living a Safe Universe, Vol. 2: A Book For Seth Readers, its predecessor being the one I published in January of the same title sans a volume identification. The links here for the books will take you to the Amazon site where you can read their Introduction chapters and many marvelous reviews by Seth readers within the books themselves (immediately after the cover in Look Inside).

Blogging for Seth Books Publisher

Another thing I'm very pleased with since we last talked is that I've been invited to become a Seth/Jane blogger for Amber-Allen Publishing, the company that publishes the ten original Seth books plus Jane's Oversoul Seven trilogy. My two blogs to date, if interested, are:
Seth and the Leap Beyond
Seth and Camouflage Reality in the Spacious Present

FYI, I'll be adding new blog links as they are published to my Lynda's Seth Talk section.

Upcoming Conferences

Here's the updated list of conferences we've been told about to date. You can read about them on our SethNet site in Conferences and Workshops:

Seth Community Conference, Denver, September 12-15, 2013
California Seth Conference, San Mateo, CA, March 1-2, 2014
East Coast Seth Conference, NYC, date to be determined
West Coast Seth Conference, Los Angeles, date to be determined

Why Facebook?

Don't forget, my friends, you're most welcome to join me on my Facebook page. It's easy (I'll tell you non-techies how below), and more importantly you'll be part of an ongoing daily exposure to both Seth quotes and  a lot of readers, who may choose to comment on them. And what a world of value opens up because of it! I cannot do it justice here in words; it needs to be experienced to understand the richness this kind of shared Seth experience brings. So, for those of you new to Facebook...

1. First, I really want to stress that YOU DO NOT NEED TO PARTICIPATE on my page. All you need to do is enjoy the comments of others and the many Seth quotes that get shared.

2. To sign up for Facebook means this:
a) You do not need to use your real name, if that is a concern of yours.
b) You do not need to post a photo of any sort.
c) You will need to give FB an email address for their correspondence to you.
d) You will also need to post an email address on your page. However, FB will assign you one with Facebook.com in it instead of your email address, if you choose to use it.
And that’s it. No need to fill in any other info at all.

3. Then, to become my FB friend, do this:
a) At the top of your FB page is a search box. Enter and click on Lynda Madden Dahl.
b) Click on Add Friend. I will receive a message and will approve your name.
At that point, you can go anywhere on my page you wish to go, read whatever you want to read, share whatever you wish to share, if anything.

As I said in the last newsletter, please believe me, a whole new world will open to you, replete with both national and international Seth friends you would not have had an opportunity to meet otherwise. For Seth readers, Facebook is the best thing since sliced bread. :-)

To help you along in your decision, I thought I’d print below some of the daily Seth Snippets I've posted on my Facebook page over time.

Okay, guys, that’s it for today. I’ll hold the pleasant thought of seeing you on Facebook, if you’re not already there. My sincere good wishes to you all, as always.

Warmly, Lynda


 A Seth Snippet...

"Live each day as fully and joyfully as possible. Imagine the best possible results of any plans or projects. Above all, do not concentrate upon past unfavorable events, or imagined future ones."

The Way Toward Health, Chapter 2, Feb. 1, 1984

..................................................................

A Seth Snippet...

"You may say, 'I was born in a house on a certain street in a certain town, and no present belief to the contrary will change that fact.' If, in the present, one past event can be altered within your neuronal structure, however, then basically no event is safe from such change."

The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 654

..................................................................

A Seth Snippet...

"You do not have to fight to trust the thrust of your own life. That thrust is always meant to lead you toward your own best fulfillment, in a way that will benefit the species as well.

"When you trust the thrust of your own life, you are always supported."

Dreams, "Evolution," and Value Fulfillment, Vol. 1, Private Session, 9/13/79

..................................................................

A Seth Snippet...

"You must simply and practically try to divest yourself of all ideas of time as you know it... Basically what you call time does not exist. I am trying to tell you what does exist instead."

The Early Sessions, Book 9, Session 429

..................................................................

A Seth Snippet...

"It should appear obvious from what I am saying that neither future nor past is predetermined. From your platform of poised now-experience, you alter both the past and the future, and that alteration, that change, that action, causes your point of immediate sense life.”

The "Unknown" Reality, Vol. 1, Session 684

..................................................................

A Seth Snippet...

"Consciousness is an attribute of the soul, a tool that can be turned in many directions. You are not your consciousness. It is something that belongs to you and to the soul. You are learning to use it. To the extent that you understand and utilize the various aspects of consciousness, you will learn to understand your own reality, and the conscious self will truly become conscious."

Seth Speaks, Session 575

..................................................................

A Seth Snippet...

"There is a portion of All That Is directed and focused within each individual, residing within each consciousness. Each consciousness is, therefore, cherished and individually protected... This portion that knows itself as you, and as more than you, is the personal God, you see."

The Seth Material, Chapter 18

..................................................................

A Seth Snippet...

"The inner natural leanings of all consciousness within the realms of your being now yearn for constructive change, clearer vision, to experience again their inherent sense of corporal spirituality, physical and psychic grace. They want to sense again the effortless motion that is their natural birthright."

Dreams, "Evolution," and Value Fulfillment, Vol. 2, Session 941

..................................................................

A Seth Snippet...

"You cannot concentrate upon two things at once. So to the extent that you concentrate upon your pleasures, your accomplishments, and to the extent that you relate to the psychic and biological moment, you are refreshing yourselves. You are not projecting negatively, and you are allowing the problem to unwrinkle, unknot.

"You are denying it the energy of your attention that keeps it going. You do not spend time thinking that you have not used your abilities properly. You take it for granted that you are using them properly, and that allows them to fully develop."

The Personal Sessions, 8-14-78

..................................................................

A Seth Snippet...

"You have heard the expression before, I am sure, that the environment expresses a particular individual's personality. I am telling you that this is a literal and not symbolic truth... You may think, 'Surely, I did not create the book, as I created my words.'... (But) basically speaking, each of you create the book you hold in your hands, and your entire physical environment comes as naturally out of your inner mind as words come out of your mouths, and man forms physical objects as unselfconsciously and as automatically as he forms his own breath."

Seth Speaks, Session 523


Dateline May 1, 2013: Long Time No Talk, Sethies!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Friends,

I hope this finds you well! It’s been over four months since my last newsletter to you, and that’s what I want to talk to you about. When we launched the new Seth Network in 2009, my desire and goal was to write to you every month or two. So much has happened in my life since then that has impacted my goal significantly, though, to the point where I need to bring it to your attention and hopefully find a better solution to our conversations.

First, I launched my Facebook page a couple years ago. Since then it’s grown to over 1,000 Seth readers, and new folks join almost daily, many of whom are international readers. And while I love it, the attention it needs is way up there.

Also, I started two other Facebook Seth-related pages, one as an introduction to Seth Network and one to help introduce Jane to the Facebook community. And while they pretty much don’t change content, I receive lots of emails from those who drop in to review them.

Next, I wrote and recently published my fifth Seth-based book and eBook, Living a Safe Universe: A Book for Seth Readers. I’m happy to say the response to it has been terrific…and the emails regarding it great in number.

And finally, I’m in the throes of writing a sequel to my last book, not very creatively called Living a Safe Universe, Vol. 2. With focused effort, I hope to publish it and its eBook within a couple of months.

All of this goes to say I have a very significant time commitment to my work with Seth Network, my FB pages, my writing, my email correspondence—all willingly done and with great enthusiasm, but a heavy commitment nonetheless. And one that suggests I may not be able to continue writing newsletters, except maybe one or two a year.

So, here’s my proposal…no, my entreaty. :-) Please join me as a friend on Facebook. I know (because you’ve told me) that some of you have a very strong negative reaction to FB and have foresworn ever joining. But let me tell you a little about it, if I may.

On my page what I do is post what I call a Seth Snippet each day, with a quote taken verbatim from the books; or, I’ll post a Seth quote with a little editorializing as a lead-in. What happens then is that any of my friends can post their own comments below mine…and what a world of value to Seth readers opens up because of it! I am still amazed and delighted by the insights shared by Sethies, the questions asked of each other, the deep delving into the material that brings a clarity perhaps not as easy to grasp by reading alone with our books. And I cannot do it justice here in words; it needs to be experienced to understand the richness this kind of shared experience brings.

One of the things many of you say is you’re not a computer person, that you’re lucky to be plugged into email, let alone Facebook. But I’ll gladly attempt to dissuade you of that thinking!

1. First, I really want to stress that YOU DO NOT NEED TO PARTICIPATE on my page. All you need to do is enjoy the comments of others and the many Seth quotes that get shared.

2. To sign up for Facebook means this:
a) You do not need to use your real name, if that is a concern of yours.
b) You do not need to post a photo of any sort.
c) You will need to give FB an email address for their correspondence to you.
d) You will need to post an email address on your page. However, FB will assign you one with Facebook.com in it instead of your email address, if you choose to use it.
And that’s it. No need to fill in any other info at all.

3. Then, to become my FB friend, do this:
a) At the top of your FB page is a search box. Enter and click on Lynda Madden Dahl.
b) Click on Add Friend. I will receive a message and will approve your name.
At that point, you can go anywhere on my page you wish to go, read whatever you want to read, share whatever you wish to share, if anything.

Please believe me, a whole new world will open to you, replete with both national and international Seth friends you would not have had an opportunity to meet otherwise. For Seth readers, Facebook is the best thing since sliced bread. :-)

To help you along in your decision, I thought I’d print a couple of the past Seth Snippets (not the posted responses to them, though, because of space). So, I’ll add them after my closing.

And I guess that’s where I am now, at my closing. There’s no news to impart today, but I do recommend you keep your eye on the Directory on our Seth Network site, for the latest announcements posted therein. To remind you, here’s what you will see in the SNI Directory:

Seth Groups/Networks
Seth-Based Articles
Sethian Speakers
Conferences and Workshops
Seth-Friendly Businesses
Blogs and Discussion Groups
Seth-Influenced Media
Other Seth Sites

Okay, guys, that’s it for today. With psychic fingers crossed, I’ll hold the thought of seeing you on Facebook, if you’re not already there. My sincere good wishes to you all, as always.

Warmly, Lynda

...............................................

A Seth Snippet...

"If you direct your inner self with confidence to steer you through your physical existence, it will do so. If you concentrate upon difficulties, you will not allow it to do so. For any negative focus (and underline negative) within egotistical reality will automatically block you."

The Early Sessions, Book 5, Session 220

...............................................

A Seth Snippet...

"It is not enough to meditate, or to imagine in your mind some desired goal being accomplished, if you are afraid to act upon the very impulses to which your meditations and imaginings give rise....

"You must encounter the selves that you are now. Acknowledge your impulses. Explore their meanings. Rely upon yourselves. You will find far greater power, achievement, and virtue than you suppose."

The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Session 873

...............................................

A Seth Snippet...

"Organize your reality according to your strength; organize your reality according to your playfulness; according to your dreams; according to your joy; according to your hopes—and then you can help those who organize their reality according to their fears."

Conversations with Seth, Vol. 2, Chapter 20

...............................................

A Seth Snippet...

"There is nothing more stimulating, more worthy of actualization, than the desire to change the world for the better. That is indeed each person's mission. You begin by working in that area of activity that is your own unique one, with your own life and activities. You begin in the corner of an office, or on the assembly line, or in the advertising agency, or in the kitchen. You begin where you are."

The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Session 850

...............................................

A Seth Snippet...

“There are no real rules to be followed that will bring you into an encounter with the present moment of reality – only a trust in the nature of your being. And that trust is within you whether or not you recognize it, for it gives you your present experience; and no matter how your mind questions, it resides securely in the great creativity of the soul.”

The "Unknown" Reality, Vol. 2, Session 733

...............................................

A Seth Snippet...

"It is not necessary that you learn about your own past lives, though it may be helpful if you understand that you chose the circumstances of your birth this time.

"If you examine your own life now carefully, the challenges that you have set for yourself will become apparent. This is not easy to do, but it is within the grasp of each individual."

Seth Speaks, Session 551

...............................................

A Seth Snippet...

"Because of the simultaneous nature of time, beliefs can be changed in the present moment. There is no need to search endlessly into the past of this life or any other, for the 'original' causes for beliefs. Making a change in the present of a certain kind will automatically alter all beliefs 'across the board,' so to speak."

The Way Toward Health, Chapter 1


 Dateline January 1, 2013: Celebrating the NEW Moment Point!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Friends!

We Sethies celebrate the start of our NEW YEAR within our individual culture's traditions, but this year I have a crazy suggestion to make. :-) Instead, let's celebrate the moment point in simultaneous time! Let's go right to the core of creation and claim it as the only time there is! Why? Because it's true. (Hey, we're Seth readers – everyone knows we're a little nuts anyway!)

Here's some interesting stuff Seth says about the moment point for himself and his colleagues: "Here, within the moment point, the smallest thought is brought to fruition, the slightest possibility explored, the probabilities thoroughly examined, the least or the most forceful feeling entertained.... The moment point is the framework within which we have our psychological experience."  (Seth Speaks, Session 541)

And, what's just as interesting, Seth explains the moment point as it applies to us this way: "The moment point, as you think of it, is the creative framework through which you, the nonphysical self, constantly form corporeal reality; and through that window into earthly existence you form both its future and its past." And, "In your terms—the phrase is necessary—the moment point, the present, is the point of interaction between all existences and reality. All probabilities flow through it." (The first quote here is from The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 654, and the second from The "Unknown" Reality, Vol. One, Session 681.)

So, to help us better understand the power of the moment point, I've copied below a document now found in my Seth Talk, and it's called "What Would Seth Say to Me Today about Living in the Moment Point?" It's actually number two of a series, and the first "In the Moment Point..." doc can also be found there, both in PRINTABLE format. To me they collectively suggest to us we might want to learn how to use the moment point to our advantage since it is our window into simultaneous time, our point of creation. Enjoy, folks!

Okay, on to today's news...

MY NEW BOOK NOW PUBLISHED!

I'm thrilled to say my new book, Living a Safe Universe: A Book for Seth Readers, is now published! Instead of discussing it here, I give you words from Rich Kendall, author of The Road to Elmira and a member of Jane's ESP Class: "Lynda takes the reader deep into the heart of Seth's teachings, and one emerges with a new vision and understanding of concepts that will transform one's personal world, and thus the world in general. Highly recommended for all Seth readers who wish to take Seth's material to a whole new level." Currently my book's available in our SethNet Bookstore, on Amazon, and soon will be in the other outlets. Also, if you're on Facebook, its page is "Living a Safe Universe: A Book for Seth Readers." There's also a write-up on it, with lots of Sethie reviews, at SethNet in Seth-Influenced Media.

SAYING BON VOYAGE TO HARRY JOHNSON

As many of you know, we lost Andy Hauck in summer; and now Harry Johnson has also passed on. If you've attended US Seth conferences, you probably know Harry; and if you're from the UK, certainly you've heard of his great body of work over the years, and probably met him in person. Chris Johnson, Harry's son, has published an obituary on our SethNet site, but it's really a wonderful text article about Harry's life. Do peruse it, if you get the chance. A nice way to send our sincere appreciation and best regards to Harry, and Chris too. It's titled "UK Champion of The Seth Material Returns to Framework 2." Thanks so much, Chris! Your dad was one great person. Our thoughts are with you and your family.

SETH SPACE BECOMES SETH FORUMS

Jeff Kiefer, founder of Seth Space, has closed Seth Space and opened SETH FORUMS instead. Jeff and the participants on Seth Space determined the part of the site that drew the most attention was the forums, so Jeff made the decision to wholly focus on them. Here's some of what Jeff says on the home page of SETH FORUMS: "Please join us in lively discussions and spontaneous sharing of information. Many have found other like-minded friends here and we are always eager to welcome new members! Membership is free!" They have over 700 Sethies on the site, folks, so look for some interesting threads there!

2013 UPCOMING CONFERENCES

Here's the list of 2013 conferences we've been told about so far. You can read about them on our SethNet site in Conferences and Workshops:
West Coast Seth Conference, Los Angeles, January 26
California Seth Conference, San Mateo, CA, March 9-10
Seth Community Conference, Denver, September 12-15

SEE YOU AT THE CALIFORNIA SETH CONFERENCE!

After a three-year hiatus from speaking at conferences, I'm happy to say I'm baaack! I'll be with the gang on March 9-10 in San Mateo, CA, at the California Seth Conference. My topic will have to do with living a safe universe (big surprise, I know), and using the moment point to our great advantage to do so. Hope to see you there, folks!

That's it for now, my friends. Good to be with you, as always. Before I go, though, I offer you my ongoing invitation to become my Facebook friend. I'm at Lynda Madden Dahl. You'll meet lots of other Sethies (almost 900 of us at present, and growing daily), and share in some great discussions and Seth quotes. And if you've never been on Facebook, just click here to join. It's really easy, and you don't have to worry about posting any photos or even anything about yourself, just your name and an email address. It will be great to see you there! And once you're settled in, do visit another page I created called Seth/Jane Roberts Books and Info. It's really for newbies to the material, but I've posted some photos of Jane and Rob that are very interesting.

Take care, folks, and see you around the world of Seth, some time, somewhere. :-)

Hugs and Cheery 2013!

Lynda


 Dateline October 24, 2012: Happy Ghosts and Goblins, Sethies!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Behold, Witches & Goblins!

And happy October! A riddle for you as we approach Halloween: What do Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Latin America, Mexico, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the United States have in common? We all celebrate Halloween in one form or another! While not all celebrate on October 31, all of us welcome back the spirits of our dearly departed, either with humor or more solemn rituals. Anyone want to take a guess at which one Seth might choose? :-) (And yes, for you oldies, I revived this snippet from a Halloween email from the past. Ha!

As I sit here thinking about Seth and what great affection Seth readers have for him, I'm struck once more by how fortunate we are to have the old "ghost" and Jane and Rob share our realities, how wonderfully smart of us to have invited them in. Where would we be without them?

Well folks, there's not much news to report this time 'round; however there are three conferences we've been made aware of on the upcoming docket. One is this weekend, hosted by Rick Stack. Hope you can make it - his conferences are always great! You can check them out at Conferences and Workshops on our Seth Network site:

** East Coast Seth Conference, New York City, October 27, 2012
** West Coast Seth Conference, Los Angeles, January 26, 2013
** California Seth Conference, San Mateo (San Francisco Bay Area), March, 2013

And since we're short on news, I thought I'd offer you something else instead. I got to wondering what Seth says we are learning from the material from his perspective, and boy, was I surprised at how many comments he's made on the subject! After my sign-off, you'll find 16 Seth quotes on "YOU ARE LEARNING..." Quite intriguing, guys! And soon I'll have it posted in Seth Talk, Section Two, on our SNI site, where it will be easy to print.

Oh, one more note. If you’re on Facebook, I’d love to have you become my friend (Lynda Madden Dahl). You’ll meet lots of other Sethies (about 790 of us at present, and growing daily), and share in some great discussions. Good Seth quotes being thrown around all over the place, too! And if you've never been on Facebook, just click here to join. It's really easy, and don't worry about posting any photos or even anything about yourself. Just get the basics set up and then become my friend. It will be great to see you there! And while you're there, also check out another Facebook page I created called Seth/Jane Roberts Books and Info. It's really for newbies to the material, but I've posted some photos of Jane and Rob that are very interesting.

In closing, I leave you with this Halloween poetry from an anonymous source (staying anonymous was probably a good idea):

Witches flying past on broomsticks,
Black cats leaping here and there,
White-robed spooks on every corner,
Mournful moaning in the air,

Goblins peering out of windows,
Spirit-things that rap and run-
But don't be scared - it's just October,
And one more night of Halloween fun!

Have a great rest of October and a marvelous Halloween, everyone! Here's to pumpkins and bats and haunted houses and ghouls...and fun, fun, fun!

Hugs and good cheer from Southern California,

Lynda


 Dateline July 4, 2012: LET FREEDOM RING! (ala Seth)

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Friends at home and abroad, and Happy Independence Day to America! We beat the dastardly Brits and gained our Freedom!

Ahhh, but did we? Did any of us here really ever gain our freedom based on the linear time/cause and effect of war? True, that’s how the world defines freedom, but we Seth readers are not exactly conventional thinkers. So, how would we define it? More precisely, how would Seth define freedom, since he’s the one who offered us the new ideas that changed our thinking on the subject.

To help refresh our memories of what Seth says about freedom, I’ve compiled a list of quotes where he uses the word, and the composite picture the quotes make is breathtaking. True freedom, it turns out, is something no one can take away from us or offer back. It’s not theirs to take or offer; it is ours to individually manifest, because it is built into our consciousness, free of charge or wars.

I’ll place some of Seth’s freedom quotes at the end of this email for your enjoyment and warmth. And if you’d like to see the whole list, which is found on our website in Seth Talk, and which is significantly longer than what’s posted below, please click here: “What Would Seth Say to Me Today About Freedom?”

Speaking of Seth Talk, thanks to Jeff Kiefer, our resident genius site developer, it has been completely reorganized into sections, all with links and built-in print capability. In other words, it’s no longer one huge unwieldy document, but instead an easily maneuvered and nicely accessible offering. Whew, what a relief!

One more thing about Seth Talk. As part of the “What Would Seth Say to Me Today?” series, I’ve added another topic. This one is called “What Would Seth Say to Me Today About Living in the Moment Point?” This type of entry is specifically geared toward using the moment point to do just what Seth recommends – becoming more comfortable with the spacious present via the conscious mind, thereby allowing ourselves eventually to fully trust – which leads to living a safe universe. It's more complicated than that, but thoroughly explained in Seth Talk. If you decide to check it out, once you're in Seth Talk, scroll down to the yellow-bolded special note first, which is where the explanation starts, then scroll down to the links at the bottom of the page. – Here's to each of us replacing powerlessness with trust, guys!

Okay, in case you haven’t been keeping up with the list of upcoming Seth conferences, here it is, folks. And if you go to Conferences and Workshops on our site, you can read a little about each one. Please especially note the one in Taiwan. This is the first workshop they’ve offered for the international audience, and it’s called “Healing with the Seth Material.” It will be taught in Chinese Mandarin with simultaneous interpretation to English. To help promote it, they’re kindly offering a discount to a group of three or more people.

** Seth Community Conference, Denver, September 6-9 , 2012
** Online Seth Intensive Workshop, Internet, Oct. 3-Nov. 7, 2012
** Seth Education Foundation Workshop, Taiwan, Oct. 19-21, 2012
** International Seth Conference, Strasbourg, November, 2012
** California Seth Conference, San Mateo (San Francisco Bay Area), March, 2013

On the personal front, I have my own news to share. Three of my books are now in eBook format and available on Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com, etc. The Apple version will be in its store soon. The books, in case you’re wondering :-) are Beyond the Winning Streak, Ten Thousand Whispers, and The Wizards of Consciousness, all Seth-based (big surprise, I know). And a shout-out here to David Harrison, a Seth reader himself, for doing such a fine job of creating them. If you’re an author considering eBooks, his email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. He’s great, guys!

And if you’re on Facebook, I’d love to have you become my friend (Lynda Madden Dahl). You’ll meet lots of other Sethies (about 650 of us at present, and growing daily), and share in some great discussions. Good Seth quotes being thrown around all over the place, too! And if you've never been on Facebook, just click here to join. It's really easy, and don't worry about posting any photos or even anything about yourself. Just get the basics set up and then become my friend. It will be great to see you there! Oh, and while you're there, also check out another Facebook page I recently created called Seth/Jane Roberts Books and Info. It's really for newbies to the material, but I've posted some photos of Jane and Rob that are very interesting.

I guess that’s it for today, folks. It was a pleasure to share time with you, and I sincerely look forward to it again down the road. Meanwhile, enjoy Seth’s comments below and LET FREEDOM RING!

Warmly, Lynda

 Dateline April 3, 2012: HAPPY SPRING, SETH FRIENDS!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

I've always loved spring, haven't you? To me it stands for new growth, deepening roots, emerging possibilities. And in a way, that's what I set out to feel and do with my third "What Would Seth Say To Me Today?" document at the end of this email.

If you recall, last fall I introduced you to this concept of mine, started long ago, where, usually in a state of desperation, I'd gather to me short Seth quotes that had meaning to me in that exact moment in time. Then I'd take my document with me on long walks, thinking about each quote individually and what it meant to me. What I was always trying to do was bring balance back into my life, where new growth could once again be encouraged to flourish.

So, what I decided to do last fall was share some of these documents with you in my newsletters, and today's is a continuation of that action, number three in the series to date. If you decide to use them like I do, then here’s what I’d suggest. Print the document, and during your quiet times or before sleep, read what Seth is saying as though he's talking directly to you . Maybe you’ll only read a couple of the quotes at a time, because you want to think about what they mean to you. Or maybe you'll cover a whole page of them at once. But whatever you do, be ready for the clarity and warmth and direction Seth brings to you, personally, in that moment.

Okay, before we move on to today's "What Would Seth Say To Me Today?" doc. (which, by the way, is also posted along with the others in Seth Talk on our Seth Network site), a couple updates for you news-wise.

SECOND SETH BOOK NOW IN JAPANESE

We recently heard from Masa Nishio, the founder of Seth Network Japan, that the second Seth book has now been printed in Japanese! The first, published years ago, was Seth Speaks, and now we have The Nature of Personal Reality. And more good news is that Masa was asked to write the Afterword. – Go Masa! Go Seth Network Japan!!

A COMPILATION OF SETH'S 120 EXERCISES!

How many times have you remembered reading a Seth exercise on, say, finding and/or changing beliefs or sensing your greater being, and having no clue which book it might be found in? Thanks to Ger van Ooijen of the Netherlands, that problem now disappears. On the Seth Network site in Seth-Based Articles is a PDF compilation of 120 exercises from eight books, truly a gold mine for serious Seth readers! – Our sincere thanks and appreciation, Ger!

OVERSOUL SEVEN SCRIPT AWAITING FINANCIAL BACKING

Surely you've all read the Oversoul Seven trilogy that Jane wrote, right? Well, Seth reader and scriptwriter Sharianne Greer tells us she's completed the film script about Oversoul Seven, and it's been accepted by the producer who has the legal rights to the OS7 character. What they're looking for now is financing in various increments, so if you have an interest or know someone who might, here's Sharianne's email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. – How great would this be, folks? OS7 on the Big Screen!

SEE YOU ON FACEBOOK!

If you're on Facebook, do become a friend with me at Lynda Madden Dahl and spend time with lots of other Seth readers with interesting things to talk over. And while you're there, also check out another Facebook page I recently created called Seth/Jane Roberts Books and Info. It's really for newbies to the material, but I've posted some photos of Jane and Rob that are very interesting. I also created pages for my four books and Norm Friedman's two, and they can be accessed easily from my FB site, too.

Okay guys, I think what I’ll do now is sign off before pasting below the promised “What Would Seth Say To Me Today?” document. So take care, have great weather, and we’ll talk again down the road!

Hugs and cheers from Southern California!

 Dateline January 1, 2012: HAPPY NEW YEAR, SETH READERS!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012,

Seth Readers! Another year under our collective belts, and a new one shining with dreams and possibilities awaits our creation. How very wise we are to have chosen this time and place, with Seth around to help us track a conscious path through our individual realities.

As we are well aware, some of our creations depend on our conscious goals, which many of us give significant thought to this time of the season. So it seems a no-brainer that we use what we can from the Seth material to help make this new year's journey as effortless and fulfilling as possible.

To help us along, I thought it might be useful to hear some of what Seth has to say about goals again - as you may recall, I posted a few last New Year's, too, and they are included with the ones below. So after a few other notes, I'll paste a gift from Seth to kick off the new year, 2012.

SETH'S NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

It just would not be a proper New Year if someone didn't post Seth's resolutions. So, we are assuring the continuation of a wonderful tradition by providing an article that contains the four resolutions that Seth suggested to Jane and Rob on January 1, 1979. They provide a compelling reminder for all of us that one's focus creates, and that we can change our lives by changing our minds. While they get special mention on New Year’s Day, we should also remember that they are good reading on many other occasions throughout the year. These timeless gems may be found in Directory > Seth-Based Articles > Seth's New Year's Resolutions. Enjoy!

WHAT WOULD SETH SAY TO ME TODAY...ABOUT GOALS? - - NOW POSTED IN SETH TALK

In October 2011, I added another portion to my Seth Talk column on our Seth Network site, called Section Two: What Would Seth Say To Me Today? Instead of repeating what's written there about the purpose of Section Two, I'll just say that the second entry of quotes is the document on goals printed below. So you can copy and paste from there, if it works better for you. And if you haven't yet visited Seth Talk, you'll find dozens of Seth comments categorized by subject (for instance, Seth on Suggestion/Expectation and Seth on Trust) as part of an overall year-long monthly posting I did called Living a Safe Universe.

2012 SETH CONFERENCES

To date there are three 2012 Seth conferences scheduled (all info on the SNI site). New Awareness Network has a West Coast event in Los Angeles on January 21; the California Seth Conference has set aside March 3-4 for their fourth annual event, this time in San Mateo; and the Colorado Seth Conference (CSC) is scheduled for September 6-9. FYI, except for Jim Funk, the original CSC committee has stepped aside, and married couple Dana Beardshear and Jim Colvard have joined forces with Jim Funk to bring a newly tooled conference to Seth readers. We send them warm wishes and best regards with their endeavor!

LAUREL DAVIES-BUTTS AUCTION UPDATE

In the last newsletter we announced that Laurel, Rob's widow, would soon offer for auction some of Jane and Rob's collection, including an original manuscript and paintings by Rob and Jane; however Laurel has changed her mind. Will keep you posted if circumstances alter.

SEE YOU ON FACEBOOK!

If you're on Facebook, do become a friend with me at Lynda Madden Dahl and spend time with lots of other Seth readers with interesting things to talk over. And while you're there, also check out another Facebook page I recently created called Seth/Jane Roberts Books and Info. It's really for newbies to the material, but I've posted some photos of Jane and Rob that are very interesting. I also created pages for my four books and Norm Friedman's two, and they can be accessed easily from my FB page, too.

Okay, that's it for today on updates, guys. Now, as promised, the Seth quotes on GOALS. Enjoy, use, and may we all bloom in 2012! And a very Happy New Year from the beaches of Southern California to your part of the world.

Lynda

 Dateline October 18, 2011: What Would Seth Say To You Today?

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Friends,

Good to be talking to you again! After my months of sabbatical, I'm back with bells on (scares the heck out of my cat). I do have a few news items for you, but before we go there I'd like to explain what's going to be happening over the next several newsletters, and it starts with an explanation of something in my life.

Like many of you, I've been a constant reader of the Seth material for a long time, actually decades. I always have a book close by, and consider the material a daily part of my life. Years ago, pretty much out of desperation, I found myself wishing for much more personal contact with Seth's words in a way that would focus them down from the long quotes and deep treatment of subjects that brought such overall understanding to me.

Almost from my introduction to Jane's work, I'd been taking Seth quotes along on long contemplative walks, reading them in Psy-Time, and even kept a stack handy in the car to think about while driving. Now I wanted more, I wanted to have Seth’s words directed to me in a way that not only would help clear my mind of a given problem or concern, but could be more easily integrated into my mind as my blueprint for moment-by-moment thinking. So I wrote at the top of a page, “What Would Seth Say to Me Today?”, then went into the books looking for mostly one-liners and other very short quotes that addressed my need of the moment. Over time I expanded the subject line to include specific topics I needed immediate help with, such as my favorite, “What Would Seth Say to Me Today About Trust?”

So, what I’ve decided to do is share some of these documents with you over the coming newsletters. If you decide to use them like I do, then here’s what I’d suggest. Make them personal to you by recreating in Word your own document, done in your favorite font with the headings and some words highlighted in color. Print the doc, and during your quiet times or before sleep, read what Seth is telling you personally. Maybe you’ll only read a couple of the quotes each time because you want to think about what they mean to you, or maybe you'll cover a whole page of them at once, but whatever you do, be ready for the clarity and warmth and direction Seth brings to you in that moment.

Before the first Seth-say document, I did want to bring to your attention the upcoming Seth conferences on the schedule for the next couple of months (and found on our website). This coming weekend our friends in Germany and Switzerland will hold their 30th annual Seth conference, an accomplishment unparalleled in the Sethian world (sincere congratulations, guys!). And on November 12, Rick Stack’s annual East Coast conference will be in held in NYC, this year as a one-day get-together instead of his usual two. Same for Rick’s West Coast event in Los Angeles on January 21. Oh, and just an early heads up, the California Seth Conference has set aside March 3-4 for their fourth annual event, although it’s not been publicized yet.

One more bit of news, folks. Laurel Davies-Butts will soon offer for auction some of Jane and Rob’s collection. To date what will be included (perhaps with more to come) is the original manuscript for The Education of Oversoul Seven as well as signed copies by Jane of the three Oversoul books; and paintings by Rob and Jane. We have no date for the auction or how it’s to be conducted, but will get back to you later with its details.

I think what I’ll do now is sign off before pasting below the promised “What Would Seth Say...” document. So take care, folks, and we’ll talk again down the road at some undetermined time (meaning my emails to you may be more sporadic than they were in the past, when one a month was the norm). And if you’re on Facebook, do become a friend with me at Lynda Madden Dahl and spend time with lots of other Seth folks with interesting things to talk over.

With love and appreciation,

Lynda

P.S. I left a draft of this finished letter and quotes doc on my desk for several hours before emailing it to you because I got tied up in some other pressing issues. Happy to say it worked out well, because meanwhile the thought floated forward that adding these "What Would Seth Say..." papers to my Seth Talk blog on the website might be a good idea. So that's what I just did with this first one and will continue to do in the future. So you can read the quotes there, folks, if it suits you better.

(Folks, since the "What Would Seth..." is already on this site, I've deleted it from this copy of the email.)


 Dateline June 3, 2011: Here Comes Summer...and More Seth!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hi Seth Friends,

Welcome to the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer (in the Western hemisphere, anyway)! I won’t be back in email form for several months, so today I want to not only offer you Sethian news, but leave you with some marvelous thoughts from Seth on how to change our world for the better. Can’t hear enough about that from our friend, and lots to think about over soda and pretzels and beer, while wishing summer could always be here. (I sincerely hope most of you are old enough to pick up on Nat King Cole’s song, otherwise I sound like a really odd duck, LOL!)

Okay, for starters, then, here’s the latest news from the world of Seth:

RICH KENDALL’S “THE ROAD TO ELMIRA” NOW PUBLISHED

Jane’s ESP class member, New York Boy, and friend to many of us, Rich has finalized publication of The Road to Elmira, his first book, but not to be his last, on the subject of his time with Seth, Jane and Rob. And what a book it is! Here’s a quote from Seth to Rich, which sets the stage nicely: “As you sit and think and ask your questions, you sit and think and ask your questions not only for yourself but for many others. And so, the answers that are given are for you, and through you for many more.” It’s available through our SNI Bookstore and Amazon. – Sincere congratulations, Rich! Already can’t wait for Volume 2. :-)

TWO NEW CONFERENCES ADDED TO SETHIAN CALENDAR

We’re very pleased to say that New Awareness Network recently announced two upcoming conferences, New York City (November 12) and Los Angeles (January 21). Both conferences will be the third year’s offerings by New Awareness in these cities, truly becoming annual (three’s the charm, right?). This year’s new twist: the events will be one day, instead of two. Since Rick Stack is in charge, you are guaranteed a very focused Sethian experience, one not to be missed, if possible.

COLORADO SETH CONFERENCE JUST AROUND THE CORNER

The conference next in line for 2011 is in Denver on September 21-25. It’s the 11th get-together for Colorado Seth Conference, making it one of the longest running annual conferences to date. And this year’s topic is very intriguing (as usual for this group), and it is “Uncovering the Mysteries of the Unknown Realities.” A great way to end your summer, folks, and a yearly annual highlight for some.

SETH TALK FINAL ENTRY NOW POSTED

A year ago July I started writing Seth Talk, and just now finished and posted its 12th and final entry on our SNI site. The whole subject has been about redefining the self so that it becomes possible to trust enough to live a personal safe universe. Within that subject we covered the three creative dilemmas of All That Is, action, identities, the spacious present, significances, suggestion, the moment point, probabilities, mental acts, the inner self and entity, trust, and a safe universe. And the last entry is about bringing new definition to the self based on what Seth says in those outlined subjects. – Go Seth! I'll sign off up here, and then post Seth’s comments our subject of the day: changing our world. Have a very fine summer, my friends, and come visit me on Facebook(under Lynda Madden Dahl) if you're in the neighborhood. See you down the long, dusty road at summer’s end.

My best regards,

Lynda

 Now sit back, relax, and absorb the words that can change the world as we currently know it.


 SETH ON CHANGING OUR WORLD FOR THE BETTER

    • Many people want to change the world for the better, but that ideal seems so awe-inspiring that they think they can make no headway unless they perform some great acts of daring or heroism, or envision themselves in some political or religious place of power, or promote an uprising or rebellion.
    • You will often condone quite reprehensible acts if you think they were committed for the sake of a greater good.
    • The ideal seems so remote and unreachable that sometimes any means, however reprehensible, eventually can seem justified.
    • To change the world for the better, you must begin by changing your own life. There is no other way.
    • Every time you affirm the rightness of your own existence, you help others. Your mental states are part of the planet's psychic atmosphere.
    • For a start you will acknowledge your existence in the framework of nature, and to do that you must recognize the vast cooperative processes that connect each species with each other one.
    • You begin by honoring life in all of its forms.
    • You begin by accepting your own worth as a part of the universe, and by granting every other being that same recognition.
    • You begin by changing your thoughts toward your contemporaries, your country, your family, your working companions.
    • You cannot love your neighbor, in fact, until you love yourself, and if you believe that it is wrong to love yourself, then you are indeed unable to love anyone else.
    • If the ideal of loving your neighbor like yourself seems remote, you will at least absolutely refrain from killing your neighbor – and your neighbor is any other person on the face of the planet.
    • In a manner of speaking, you must be a practicing idealist if you are to remain a true idealist for long.
    • You must take small practical steps, often when you would prefer to take giant ones – but you must move in the direction of your ideals through action.
    • Otherwise you will feel disillusioned, or powerless, or sure, again, that only drastic, highly un-ideal methods will ever bring about the achievement of a given ideal state or situation.
    • Developing your own abilities, whatever they may be, exploring and expanding your experience of selfhood, gives life a sense of purpose, meaning, and creative excitement...
    • When you do not take any steps toward an ideal position, then your life does lack excitement.
    • You become depressed. You might become an idealist in reverse, so that you find a certain excitement in contemplating the occurrence of natural disasters, such as earthquakes.
    • You may begin to concentrate your attention on such activities. You may contemplate the end of the world instead, but in either case you are propelled by a sense of personal frustration...
    • Each person alive helps paint the living picture of civilization as it exists at any given time, in your terms. Be your own best artist.
    • Your thoughts, feelings and expectations are like the living brush strokes with which you paint your corner of life's landscape.
    • If you do your best in your own life, then you are indeed helping to improve the quality of all life.
    • Your thoughts are as real as snowflakes or raindrops or clouds. They mix and merge with the thoughts of others, to form man's livingscape, providing the vast mental elements from which physical events will be formed.
    • I would like each of my readers to be a practicing idealist...
    • If you do this, your life will automatically be provided with excite­ment, natural zest and creativity, and those characteristics will be reflected outward into the social, political, economic, and scientific worlds.
    • This is a challenge more than worth the effort. It is a chal­lenge that I hope each reader will accept.
    • The practical ide­alist...When all is said and done, there is no other kind.

 Dateline May 4, 2011: SETH ON THE SAFE UNIVERSE

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hi Seth Friends,

It's good to be talking to you again, although I don't really have any Sethian news to pass on this month. I do, however, come bearing gifts. Lots and lots of gifts! Gifts that are both priceless and practical, and highly sought after by Seth readers the world over.

And what, you might ask, are these unique, sought-after gifts? Okay, you might not ask, but here it is anyway: A ton of amazing Seth quotes!

You had to be blind - or not in HTML - to not see the large bold heading displayed at the top of this email, so this will be no big surprise to you: the quotes are from Seth on The Safe Universe. It's purely coincidental that this month's newly posted Seth Talk entry on our SNI site  is on this subject, too, dovetailing nicely and most serendipitously (don't you think?) with today's gifts.

I never know how many Seth quotes to put in one of my emails to you, because what I post on Seth Talk is usually a much longer presentation - and too long may be too boring in an email. But this time, since I have no news to fill space, I'll give you the whole enchilada, as we say in America (maybe in Mexico, too).

Because the list is lengthy and you may doze off halfway through, I'll officially sign off up here at the top. Have a very fine May, my friends, and come visit Seth Talk or me on Facebook (under Lynda Madden Dahl) if you're in the neighborhood. Until we meet again, here's to lighthearted instead of unenlightened constructions for us all!

My best regards,

Lynda

(At this point, folks, where the Seth quotes normally would be in our emails, instead please go to Seth Talk's last entry if you'd like to see them. They are identical to what you'd see there!


 Dateline April 3, 2011: SPRING - AND TRUST - IS IN THE AIR!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Readers,

Spring has finally sprung (at least in Southern California) and a "newness" is in the air. Perhaps part of that newness is simply a new or different way of looking at things, and maybe a deepening of understanding brought about by our revitalized sight. And if that's the case, now seems a good time to revisit one of Seth's concepts that lays the groundwork for that magical "newness" to truly bloom into something special, something lasting through all seasons. And that something is trust.

And, big surprise, trust just happens to be the subject of my newly posted Seth Talk entry on our site. :-) It's also the subject of the quotes below, offered as a springtime gift in Seth's name to each and every one of us. They are a breath of fresh air, a suggestion of the growth that can happen with a little nurturing, a... Okay, okay, I'll stop with the spring thing! If it's boring me, it's surely putting you to sleep. So enjoy the offerings from our friend Seth with eyes wide open and no more lame spring references.

But before we get to Seth's comments, here's a little news from around the Sethian world.

JAPAN SETH FRIENDS OKAY

While it's something we fervently wish had never happened, we're at least very happy to say our Seth friends in Japan came out of the disaster alive and well. Masa Nishio, founder of Seth Network Japan, let us know initially that, while most of his group were in contact with him, two couldn't be reached. As the days progressed, he finally made contact with one, and then the other. Masa also sent photos of the airfield where one, a flight instructor, was forced onto a building's roof in order to survive the tsunami. The airfield looked almost completely destroyed. I think we're very fortunate to use "alive and well" descriptively for our friends.

TAIWAN FALL CONFERENCE DATES SET

Seth Education Foundation's upcoming conference, titled "The Celebration of Identification," is now set for October 14-16 at their Seth Village in Hua-lein, Taiwan. They're hoping for a global participation, and if they have enough foreign registrants, they're considering special workshops for them. If you'd like to see photos of their lovely Seth Village (with text in Chinese), go to http://www.sethvillage.org.tw/; and if you're on Facebook, you can access Dr. Hsu's English page, where the conference is mentioned, at http://www.facebook.com/DrTienShengHsu. While we won't be there, we have high hopes of hearing of a significant participation from around the world!

SETH SPACE ANNOUNCES NEW MEETUP AREA ON THEIR SITE

SethSpace, the free premiere social networking site with over 620 Seth readers, has made an addition to their upgraded site called Meetup. Here's where Seth friends can publish their local Seth groups, meetings, book studies, workshops and all other things Seth-related.It's been fun to watch this site morph into an exciting place for our community to share ideas and events. - Go Seth!      http://SethSpace.com


 Okay, to set the stage for the following Seth quotes on trust, I'll start with a paragraph taken from the new Seth Talk entry, and then we'll move right into some of Seth's thoughts on the subject:

    • "What does it take, then, to make the leap from pure knowledge-based concepts that we fully accept as valid, to actually translating that knowledge into living a safe universe? This is no big secret, we all know the answer: a blending of knowledge and trust. Trust takes us beyond realization or accepted knowledge and into an awakening that constitutes a mental and imaginative leap that brings control and direction to our creations. Without trust, we cannot take the necessary and fulfilling step of living the results of our learning."
    • There are no real rules to be followed that will bring you into…an encounter with the present moment of reality – only a trust in the nature of your being.
    • And that trust is within you whether or not you recognize it, for it gives you your present experience; and no matter how your mind questions, it resides securely in the great creativity of the soul.
    • If you cannot trust that which keeps you alive, what can you trust?
    • …You must trust your own nature, for it has a purpose.
    • …Trust the natural order of being; that conditions are largely conducive to it; that your needs will be met within the circumstances of that natural order; and that you are couched and supported.
    • You cannot trust yourself and not trust yourself at the same time, without coming into some difficulty.
    • You cannot equivocate. You either trust the self or you do not.
    • What is needed is a basic trust in the nature of vitality, and faith that all elements of experience are used for a greater good.
    • Some people always feel safe and protected even when the events of their lives do not seem favorable.
    • Regardless of their own doubts and worries, such people feel themselves supported, and feel that in the end everything will work out to their advantage.
    • They take it for granted that their needs will be met, and that the universe is well-disposed toward them.
    • Every event serves a purpose. Every event is offered for a reason. What is good? What is bad?
    • The soul constantly creates the body, and each individual on the face of the earth at any given time places his or her trust in that reality.
    • One of the greatest detriments to mental and physical well-being is the unfortunate belief that any unfavorable situation is bound to get worse instead of better.
    • The body is equipped, ideally, to rid itself of any diseases, and to maintain its stability into advanced old age, with only gradual overall change.
    • In these ideal terms, death would involve a closing down of your physical house; it would not be crumbling about you.
    • It is far better to trust, for you open up Framework 2 so that benefits become available that might otherwise not be.
    • …He (Ruburt) did not have the courage of his convictions, and really made no attempt to act upon them. Had he left the gallery when his novel was published, he would by now have one and a half times his present income from writing. …
    • He would have been acting out of expectancy, in league with subconscious as well as conscious need, and the impetus of wanting money would have given it to him, if he closed off the other means. He did not.
    • When you begin trusting yourselves, you start by taking it for granted that to some extent at least you have not trusted yourself or your impulses in the past.
    • When you learn to trust your feelings and your impulses, something very strange happens. They turn quite trustworthy.
    • In your larger picture there are no errors, for each action, pleasant or not, will be redeemed.
    • And if it seems that a trust is betrayed in an individual case, the overall picture will prove to be far different.
    • You must begin to trust yourself sometime. I suggest you do it now.
    • Society would be restructured if the self were trusted.

Enough for today, folks. Do visit our SNI site frequently, if you can. We'd love to share time with you, and so would the emerging global Sethian community.

And come see me on Facebook, if you're in the neighborhood. Lots more Seth quotes and discussion going on there! (Search for Lynda Madden Dahl.)

Happy spring :-)

 Dateline March 8, 2011: SETH ON THE INNER SELF & THE ENTITY OR SOUL

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Friends,

Good to be talking to you once again. It's always a pleasure to spend time with Seth/Jane/Rob readers, and one of the reasons is we can skip the beginner's basics and get to the meat of Seth's material without undue explanations needed first. That's how I feel each time I wrap a Seth Talk discussion on our SNI site, and it's on my mind because I've just posted a very long entry and lots of Seth quotes today. The subject is the inner self and, more briefly, the entity or soul. I'll get back to it in a minute, but first a bit of news.

SETH SINGLES SUSPENDS SITE

Jeff Kiefer, creator of Seth Singles, had some bad news for Seth readers on his pioneering site. In late February he told his members: "We are so very sorry to announce the closing of Seth Singles on March 1. It seems we're ahead of our time, without exposure to a large enough audience of single Seth readers to make a go of our site, at least in the short term. While we had a very strong response to the initial idea of a single site for readers, the actual action to join may bring up personal issues for some folks, keeping them off the site. So we'll wait until we have a much greater exposure to Seth readers and perhaps give it another try down the road." Kudos, Jeff, for giving enormous time and effort to this ahead-of-its-time project. You're the greatest! Hope to see Seth Singles flourish in the future, our friend.

For those of you who don't know, Jeff has given tirelessly of his time and expertise to Seth projects over the years, gratis. For instance, he's the creator of Seth Space, the 600-plus member social networking site, he designed and programmed our SNI site, and is the developer of the California Seth Conference site. And there's more yet to come from this very creative mind.

Okay, back to the latest Seth Talk entry just posted on the inner self and a little on the entity. Or perhaps I start first by saying how impressive your response has been to the great Seth quotes in the last two emails - the January one on goals, and February's on some of what Seth says about solving personal problems. Because of that response, I thought you might enjoy even more valuable and clarifying words from Seth, ones chosen not necessarily for beginners who might need more explanation, but more for the reader who's been around awhile. To set the stage, I'll reprint here the first paragraph from Seth Talk's new 9th entry, and then I'll follow it with only a few of Seth's quotes found with that entry:

** Those of us who have been around the Seth material for any length of time know the complexity of interrelationships between entities (also called souls by Seth) and inner selves and probable selves and dream selves and past, present and future selves, etc., etc. And we know we really cannot separate our “known” self from those other aspects of our overall identity. But if we want to understand today’s physical self in a much broader framework, we do need to focus down to one relationship that has an immediate, irrevocable, unquestionable impact on us. And that relationship is, of course, to our inner self.

SETH ON THE ENTITY OR SOUL:

    • There is a portion of you, the deeper identity who forms both the inner ego (inner self) and the outer ego, who decided that you would be a physical being in this place and time. This is the core of your identity, the psychic seed from which you sprang, the multidimensional personality of which you are a part.
    • (The soul or entity) is a field of concentrated action...a powerhouse of probabilities or probable actions, seeking to be expressed; a grouping of nonphysical consciousness that nevertheless knows itself as an identity.
    • The soul could be considered as a prime identity that is in itself a gestalt of many other individual consciousnesses...
    • The soul or entity is itself the most highly motivated, most highly energized, and most potent consciousness-unit known in any universe.
    • While I use terms like soul or entity, inner self, and present personality, I do so only for the sake of convenience, for one is a part of the other; there is no point where one begins and another ends.
    • You have immediate, instant personal connection with that which is.
    • You are hardly cut off from your own soul or entity.
    • You are a part of your soul. It belongs to you and you to it.
    • While you have a limited concept of the soul, then to some extent you cut yourself off from the source of your own being and creativity.
    • The soul is the creator of all experience, and of all destinations in your terms.
    • You are a soul.

SETH ON THE INNER SELF:

    • ...The inner self being the portion of the soul that is within you.
    • You are far more than the conscious mind, and the self which you do not admit is the portion that not only insures your own physical survival in the physical universe which it has made, but which is also the connective between yourself and inner real­ity…
    • The inner ego (inner self) always identifies with the source-identity as a beloved, individualized portion of the universe. It is aware of the universal love that is its heritage.
    • The inner self is embarked upon an exciting endeavor, in which it learns how to translate its reality into physical terms.
    • It is the inner self, out of massive knowledge and the unlimited scope of its consciousness, that forms the physical world.
    • It is the inner self that organizes, initiates, projects and controls…transforming energy into objects, into matter.
    • It is of great value, then, that each person remembers this universal affiliation.
    • Such a reminder can often allow the inner self to send needed messages of strength and love, appearing as inspiration, dreams or simply bursts of feeling.
    • It is only through the recognition of the inner self that the race of man will ever use its potential.
    • You are meant to understand the nature of your inner self and to manifest it outward. As this is done, your exterior circumstances will change for the better as the inner self becomes more aware of its own nature and capabilities.
    • While the most basic work must be done by the individual, help is always available from a variety of sources, both within and without.
    • When the inner self is alerted (to a problem), it will immediately try to remedy the situation by an influx of self-corrective measures.
    • On occasion, when a problematic situation gets out of hand, the inner self will bypass those restrictive areas of the conscious mind, and solve the problem by shooting forth energy in other layers of activity.
    • The inner self will manage to work around the blind spots in the reasoning mind.
    • Often the inner self will sift from the barrage of conflicting beliefs the particular set that is the most life-giving, and send these in what then appears as a burst of revelation. Such revelations result in new patterns that can change behavior.
    • Impulses are inherently good, both spiritually and biologically. They emerge from Framework 2, from the inner self.
    • When you begin trusting yourselves, you start by taking it for granted that to some extent at least you have not trusted yourself or your impulses in the past.

Okay, I guess it's a wrap for today, friends. Come visit us at http://www.sethnet.org. And here's to a marvelous March and lots of cozy hours curled up with a Seth/Jane/Rob book. :-)

 Dateline February 6, 2011: SETH ON SOLVING PERSONAL PROBLEMS

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Friends,

Hope all is well in your lives. If not, perhaps the following Seth quotes can help. I don't have much news for you today, and since many of you seemed to appreciate the Seth quotes about goals in the New Year's email, I thought I'd offer up some more of Seth's nuggets, this time on what he might say if we asked him to help us solve any personal problems we're facing as the new year 2011 swings into fuller existence.

So settle into your student desk, get out your sharpened pencils and prepare to take notes as our good friend Seth lectures us on how to take back control of our lives.

    • At each and every point of your existence, the solutions to your problems, or the means of achieving those solutions, are always as present within your days as any given problem itself.
    • The solutions to problems already exist in your lives. You may not have put them together yet, or organized them in the necessary ways. When you attend to what is there, with the proper attitude of mind, then the altered organizations can take place.
    • She (Jane) was to stop worrying about such things and “adopt a position of divine nonchalance.”
    • Whenever you are trying to rid yourself of a dilemma, make sure that you do not concentrate your attention upon it instead. This acts to cut out other data, and to further intensify your focus upon your difficulty.
    • When you break the focus, the problem is solved.
    • It is not virtuous to remind yourself of the poverty of others.
    • Next: I am eternally couched and supported by the universe of which I am a part…
    • If you hold grudges, if you concentrate upon past dissatisfactions with Prentice Hall to whatever degree, and if you project those differences into the future, then to that degree will such be your future experience with them.
    • It does no good to say that Prentice Hall exists also outside of your experience with it – and that the people there have their own reality, for in such a way you put part of the responsibility upon another agency. In your world and experience, where your interests are paramount, and do rule, they form your reality.
    • The burden of that relationship rests upon you, upon your expectations and those beliefs about the world that you have projected upon that company.
    • Until you are honest with yourself and become consciously aware of yourself, you cannot honestly relate with others; you will project upon them your own fears and prejudices.
    • The mental and psyche difficulties were concentrated into physical symptoms, and the system was rid of the difficulty in this manner. The problem was dealt with physically in other words—always, incidentally, the last resort.
    • There is always the initial attempt to handle problems on a mental and psychic level. Physical illness represents the failure to deal with these sufficiently or effectively, and in all cases the intensity and severity of physical illness is in proportion to the severity and integrity of the inner problem.
    • A chronic and long lasting physical symptom therefore represents…a chronic, fairly enduring inner problem.
    • Contrary to usual opinion, periods of poor health are often the result of egotistic rather than subconscious manipulations. You become over-concerned with the egotistical situations, and hamper the inner self.
    • Take for example the feeling: “I want to be comforted. If I were sick someone would feel sorry for me and comfort me then.” Such a wish is very seldom on a conscious level, but it is often emotionally charged, and it brings forth immediate results because of the charge it carries.
    • Whenever you catch yourselves in moods of self-pity, you are courting just such results. There is no way out of this, you see. You simply must realize that self-pity, in your terms, is highly destructive.
    • To change your world you must change your thoughts.
    • When you fear the worst will happen, you often are showing quite real faith in a backwards fashion, for with no direct evidence before your eyes, you heartily believe it will occur.
    • Besides stating your clear intent, having faith in the process, leaving the means and details in Framework 2, you have simply to refrain from worrying as much as possible…
    • You will not discover the purpose and meaning of your life when you insist that it follow certain consciously predetermined roads – and while you concentrate upon what you do not have. This saps your energy and dulls your intuitions.
    • You are not accepting life on life’s terms. You are demanding that it behave in certain ways, and take courses that you have consciously set upon. You are refusing to gladly accept life as life, as its own reason and cause within you.
    • You say, “I don’t want any of this”. The inner self realizes, however, that potentials are present that would not necessarily be present under other circumstances – abilities that can not only help you but other individuals, and even society at large.
    • You may say, "I was born in a house on a certain street in a certain town, and no present belief to the contrary will change that fact." If, in the present, one past event can be altered within your neuronal structure, however, then basically no event is safe from such change.
    • To rid yourself of annoying restrictions then…you re-pattern your past from the present.
    • Your desire or belief will literally be reaching back into time, teaching the nerves new tricks. Definite reorganizations in that past will occur in your present, allowing you to behave in entirely new fashions.
    • Past events do not intrude (into the present) unless they are beckoned by the conscious expectations and thoughts that exist within your mind. The point of power is not in the past unless you abjectly decide to acquiesce to worn-out beliefs that no longer serve you.
    • By changing the past in your mind, now, in your present, you can change not only its nature but its effect, and not only upon yourself but others.
    • The more you enjoy life and your daily moments, the less difficulty you will be in, in any area, for your thoughts become naturally pleasant and naturally attract good to you from (the spacious present).
    • You must be willing to change all the way from the old system of orientation to the new, if you want the new approach to work fully for you in your lives.

Great quotes to ruminate over, don't you think? As always, Seth comes through for us in a pinch.

And now on to a couple things besides solving personal problems you may be interested in:

BRIEF UPDATE ON 2011 CONFERENCES & WORKSHOPS

* Here's an interesting one for you. In Phoenix on March 5-6, there's to be a Seth-based workshop on organ regeneration. It's being conducted by Seth friends from Australia, Ken and Ann Graydon, and it sounds fascinating. You can read about it on our site at Directory > Conferences and Workshops > Phoenix.

* Do keep in mind that the California Seth Conference is just around the corner on March 5-6 in the San Francisco Bay area. It's their third annual get-together, and they've pulled together a great lineup of speakers. Enjoy!

* We now have the dates for the 30th International Seth Conference, to be held close to Pforzheim, Germany. It's October 21 to 23. Currently their website is only in German, but the English translation is coming soon, so keep checking our website for their announcement. As you can imagine, they have big celebration plans afoot. It sounds like its definitely time to party with Seth!

SETH TALK CONTINUES...

As most of you know, I've undertaken a project called Seth Talk on our website, and the eighth entry is now posted. It's called "Seth on Mental Acts: Thought, Emotion and Imagination; and Tips on How to Use Them." Keep your sharpened pencils handy for when you hit the plethora of Seth quotes at the end of the entry. Lots to learn there, my friends, and we couldn't learn from a better teacher.

Okay, that's it for today, guys. Have a fine February, and I'll think of you while walking the warm beaches close to my Southern California home. :-)

 Dateline January 1, 2011: Happy and Joyous New Year, Sethies!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Seth Friends!

Another year under our collective belts, and a new one shining with dreams and possibilities awaits our creation. How very wise we are to have chosen this time and place, with Seth around to help us track a conscious path through our individual realities.

As we are well aware, some of our creations depend on our conscious goals, which many of us give significant thought to this time of the season. So it seems a no-brainer that we use what we can from the Seth material to help make this new year's journey as effortless and fulfilling as possible.

To help us along, I thought it might be useful to hear some of what Seth has to say about goals. So, here you are, a gift from Seth to kick off the new year, 2011:

    • Your goals are usually conceptualized desires, and once formed they act in a fashion like magnets, drawing from those vast fields of interrelatedness the kinds of conditions best suited to their fulfillment.
    • When the intellect is used properly, it thinks of a goal and automatically sets the body in motion toward it, and automatically arouses the other levels of communication unknown to it, so that all forces work together toward the achievement.
    • When the intellect is improperly used, it is as if the intellect feels required to somehow know or personally direct all of those inner processes.
    • Those desires of yours that are fitting to your nature will automatically come to pass, unless you block them through disadvantageous beliefs.
    • They cannot be blocked by others. If they seem to be blocked by others, that assumption is incorrect, based on ignorance.
    • Once you begin consciously working with the (spacious present), help, support, solutions, all begin to come your way, for you line up your conscious faculties with your unconscious ones, in the most beneficial way.
    • Even when nothing shows in physical reality, all the proper circumstances and conditions are being brought together.
    • Because the organization is so different, you must forget cause and effect, for things fall into place almost in a circular fashion.
    • The intellect alone cannot bring about the fulfillment of those goals. It must count upon those other properties that it does indeed set in motion – that spontaneous array of inner complexity, that orderly magic.
    • The intellect imagines the goal and imaginatively then attains it.
    • The vital word is ease or effortlessness.
    • Say, “That is not my realm. I will leave the solution to that problem or goal where it belongs.”
    • Forget the questions and the mood that accompanies them in order to create the proper kind of atmosphere at another level of consciousness.
    • If the proper creative and magical orientation is kept primarily in mind, other things will fall into place.
    • The power of the universe is a personal one. When your intent is clear, events fall into place, from the most minute to the most momentous, that bring your desire to pass.


These quotes are not only clarifying, they're reassuring, aren't they? Gotta love and appreciate our Seth.

And now on to a couple things besides goals you may be interested in:

SETH'S NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

It just would not be a proper New Year if someone didn't post Seth's resolutions. So, we are assuring the continuation of a wonderful tradition by providing an article that contains the four resolutions that Seth suggested to Jane and Rob on January 1, 1979. They provide a compelling reminder for all of us that one's focus creates, and that we can change our lives by changing our minds. While they get special mention on New Year’s Day, we should also remember that they are good reading on many other occasions throughout the year. These timeless gems may be found in Directory > Seth-Based Articles > Seth's New Year's Resolutions. Enjoy!

2011 SETH CONFERENCES and WORKSHOPS

Hard to believe there were NINE conferences and workshops in 2010. That's the largest yearly number to date in the world of Seth, and may hold the record for awhile - at least through 2011. So far on the '11 docket there are five announced, and you can see the listing on our site at Directory > Conferences/Workshops. So far they start in March (California Seth Conference) and end in October with two very interesting ones. The Swiss group is having their 30th anniversary, so it will be a uniquely special occasion; and the folks in Taiwan plan to hold what they hope will be the largest global Seth event of its kind ever. We don't have dates or further information for either of these conferences yet, but stay tuned! And don't miss the online workshops offered by New Awareness Network and NewWorldView, found on our site in Directory > Conferences/Workshops > WEB.

SETH TALK - A SWIRL OF PROBABILITIES

Launched in July by me in a fit of blind optimism, Seth Talk's seventh entry is now posted on our site, and this one's subject is a mover and shaker - and very apropos to consciously creating our new year. It's about probabilities and how they play into the overall theme of Seth Talk, which is living a safe universe. IMO, we simply cannot get from here to there without bringing a heavy dose of reality to our thinking. And this entry's dose - probabilities - will nudge us even closer to understanding how our true self, honestly and without equivocation, brings about change. And as usual, there are Seth quotes galore on the subject at hand at the end of the entry, worth their weight in gold. - Go Seth!!

To sign off today, I offer one more Seth quote to buoy each of us as we approach the coming year: "True creativity comes from enjoying the moments, which then fulfill themselves, and a part of the creative process is indeed the art of relaxation, the letting go, for that triggers magical activity."

A very Happy New Year from the beaches of Southern California to your part of the world, my friends! Let's knock 'um dead in 2011!

 Dateline December 1, 2010: A Happy Holiday Season, Folks!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Holiday Cheer, Seth Readers!

It's a pleasure to be able to say Happy Holidays to so many of you global Seth readers. And if you'd like a dose of Seth during this marvelous time of year, we've posted on our site "A Christmas with Seth," a compilation of some things Seth offers us about the season and our place in it. For instance, he says, "Look at the Christmas tree; your cells and molecules shine a million times more brightly. Your eyes glitter with far greater light. You are love in corporeal form. You do not have to look for it or wonder where to find it or give it in packages with bright ribbon. You are packages with bright ribbon." (Seth-Based Articles > A Christmas with Seth)

As the Sethian activity of the year 2010 winds down, we'll use December to catch our breath around SNI. We still have two items we want to bring to your attention, though, offered with good cheer - and the first with deep appreciation to so many of our creative Seth friends.

FIND THAT UNIQUE CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM OTHER SETHIES

With Christmas around the corner, we want to bring to your attention the many gifts that can be purchased through our friends in Seth-Friendly Businesses and Seth-Influenced Media. Gifts like specialty candles; unique dolls that look like whomever you choose; a subscription to an arts-entertainment-holistic newspaper; divination products; voice training; past life regression, hypnosis, channeling, psychotherapy, and LCSW sessions; life coaching; games and books; T-shirts with special sayings and images; a website for your favorite person; Seth conference DVDs and CDs; music CDs; even electrical services or real estate. And much more! So, if you are looking for a unique gift or would like to support a Sethie when selecting something to purchase, do check out these listings. You will find that your fellow Seth readers are quite a creative bunch. :)

SETH TALK - TRACKING TO A SAFE UNIVERSE

Seth Talk, launched on our SNI site in July, is moving right along with its purpose. Overall what we're exploring there is living a safe universe and redefining, or broadening, our definition of our self IN ORDER to live a safe universe. And this month's Seth Talk entry, just posted on our site, is about the moment point and how it ties together our previous subjects of All That Is, action, the spacious present, significances and suggestion. As Seth says, "The moment point is the creative framework through which you constantly form corporeal reality; and through that window into earthly existence you form both its future and its past." And as usual with each new Seth Talk entry, you'll find dozens of short Seth quotes that clarify his points about the given topic. - Go Seth!

Have a superb holiday season, friends, and see you in 2011! And Seth sends us his own unique regards to add to this festive time of year, so our last words of 2010 will go to him:

"Dance through your own molecules and scatter your own petals! And I bid you all a merry Christmas!"

 Dateline November 3, 2010: A Happy Global Sethian Thanksgiving!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Readers!

In late November, the people of the United States celebrate Thanksgiving, a day in which thanks are offered for all the good things in our lives. While its origin is obviously American, I thought its significance might also be applied today to our global Sethian community by highlighting something that we share with great thanksgiving, perhaps even something that binds our hearts and minds together like no other idea can. It's at the basis of the Seth material, the platform upon which Seth assures us we stand, and toward which we all aspire, even if humbly at first. And it’s the idea of a safe universe.

Here is some of what Seth says about a SAFE UNIVERSE:

    • You have an entire civilization and world set up about (these) beliefs…: that the universe is not safe; and that you must defend yourselves from enemies that come from without, and worst of all, from enemies that are within. And so indeed do you feel uneasy, and set up your barriers, and run as fast as you can…from those enemies that are the result of a one-line official kind of consciousness.
    • You need not say, “The universe is safe,” for, at your present levels, that will only enrage you! You say instead, “I live in a safe universe,” and so you shall.
    • The belief in an unsafe universe sets up certain habits of resistance, and more practically, of self-protection. The idea of prevention is always based upon fear – for you do not want to prevent something that is joyful.
    • In an unsafe universe you run your personal life along certain lines. You do not trust good fortune; indeed, it seems practical not to trust it. It does not seem to belong in an unsafe universe.
    • You cannot equivocate. You cannot say, “I live in a safe universe but but but” anything. The threat will follow you and erupt in one way or another.
    • When you begin to realize that you do indeed live in a safe universe, these patterns of reaction begin to break up. The safe universe then becomes “practical,” where before it was not considered so.
    • There is nothing in mental or physical reality that you ever need fear, for you are filled with the vitality of All That Is, and it protects you. You must simply allow it to do so.

Our combined global thanks to you, Seth and Jane and Rob, for opening our thoughts and minds to the incredible idea of a safe universe and all it implies. It’s a gift beyond compare and one for which we are truly grateful. Happy Thanksgiving to our favorite threesome!

Okay, on to more thanks, this time to some Sethies who offer their time and effort graciously and with good intent.

FREE DREAM DIARY SOFTWARE FOR YOU!

For all of you focused dreamers who use Windows or Unix, Seth reader Justin Smith offers you a marvelous gift. In Justin’s own words: “I use Linux extensively and couldn't find software for keeping a dream-diary. So I wrote my own in Perl and released it under the GNU-open source license.

Sue Williams is an amazing woman. A few years ago she manually indexed most of the Seth books into one combined index, a feat that only a very agile mind could accomplish. Since that time there have been several postings of the index, which Sue wants freely distributed, and one of the best is found on NewWorldView. If you do any research at all, don’t miss Sue’s incredible gift! http://newworldview.com/library/Williams_S_Seth-Index.html

CALIFORNIA SETH CONFERENCE ANNOUNCES 2011 DATE

Mark your calendar, folks! The third annual California Seth Conference is set for March 5 & 6 near San Francisco Airport. It’s the first Seth conference of 2011 to be announced, and Lawrence Davidson tells us it will be held at the Clarion Hotel again, in Millbrae. Like going back home each year!

TWO EARLY CLASS SESSION BOOKS RELEASED IN 2010

This is not breaking news, in that Vols. 3 and 4 have been out for several months, but because they’re not available on Amazon or anywhere else except the publisher’s site (New Awareness), we just wanted to make sure you’re aware of them. Also, speaking of New Awareness, their last conference of the year is happening November 13-14 in NYC. One final opportunity to share a fine 2010 weekend with other Seth readers, so don’t miss it! (New Awareness information is listed on our site under Conferences and Workshops.)

SETH TALK’S LATEST ENTRY IS UP!

Seth Talk, launched on our SNI site in July, is continuing the discussion of living a safe universe, and this month’s topic is Suggestion/Expectation. The whole of Seth Talk is about redefining or broadening our definition of our self by viewing creation from the spacious present instead of through the lens of linear time/cause and effect. And as usual with each new entry, you'll find dozens of short Seth quotes that clarify his points about the given topic. Go Seth!

That’s it for today, folks. A Happy Sethian Thanksgiving to everyone in our global community, and a fine November to you all!

Hugs and good cheer from Southern California,

Lynda


 Dateline October 8, 2010: SETH SINGLES IS NOW A REALITY!

Jeff Kiefer worked out all the loose ends to his new site this week, folks, so it's now open for members. As I said in the October 1 SNI newsletter, "If you're looking for a dating relationship, Seth Singles is definitely the place to go. But even better for some folks is that Seth Singles is a FRIENDSHIP site, too, a place where global Sethies can meet other single Seth readers and simply get to know them as friends. Maybe they'll plan to see each other at conferences or workshops, maybe chat on the phone, perhaps meet for dinner. Just having fun! That's what Seth Singles is all about. And that's what Seth tells us to do - just have fun. So....Go Seth Singles!!"


Dateline October 1, 2010: HAPPY GHOSTS & GHOULS, SETHIES

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Behold, Witches & Goblins!

And happy October! A riddle for you to start the month: What do Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Latin America, Mexico, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the United States have in common? We all celebrate Halloween in one form or another! While not all celebrate on October 31, all of us welcome back the spirits of our dearly departed, either with humor or more solemn rituals. Anyone want to take a guess at which one Seth might choose? :-)

As I sit here thinking about Seth and what great affection Seth readers have for him, I'm struck once more by how fortunate we are to have the old "ghost" and Jane and Rob share our realities, how wonderfully smart of us to have invited them in. Where would we be without them? And where exactly have they taken us?

Where they have taken us must surely depend upon where we individually choose to go. For many of us Jane defined quite clearly the beginning of our journey in the first verse of "A Psychic Manifesto," in The God of Jane, even if we had never read the poem previously. And it goes like this:

My life is its own definition.
So is yours.
Let us leave the priests to their hells and heavens,
and confine the scientists to their dying universe
and accidentally created stars.
Let us each dare to open our dream's door,
and explore the unofficial thresholds, where we begin.

Do you hear in Jane's voice what I hear? The courage, the defiance, the frustration, and ultimately the hope and determination? And does it not mirror our own feelings? Perhaps not for everyone who reads this note, but for many of us, yes. Lucky us.

Okay, on to explorations of another sort now...

SETH SINGLES IS BECOMING A REALITY!

YES! Seth Singles is ready to launch! Jeff Kiefer, the mastermind behind Seth Space and our SNI site, expects to open the doors OCTOBER 4. And more great news from Jeff - he's giving a gift of FREE membership until January 1, 2011, and then a very low monthly fee of $4.95. And there's more good news from Seth Singles. If you're looking for a dating relationship, Seth Singles is definitely the place to go. But even better for some folks is that Seth Singles is a FRIENDSHIP site, too, a place where global Sethies can meet other single Seth readers and simply get to know them as friends. Maybe they'll plan to see each other at conferences or workshops, maybe chat on the phone, perhaps meet for dinner. Just having fun! That's what Seth Singles is all about. And that's what Seth tells us to do - just have fun. So....Go Seth Singles!! -- (www.sethsingles.com)

SETH TALK - MOVING AWAY FROM HAPHAZARD & UNENLIGHTENED CONSTRUCTIONS

Seth Talk, launched on our SNI site in July, is moving right along with its purpose. Overall what we're talking about there is living a safe universe and redefining, or broadening our definition of, our self. They go hand-in-hand - like love and marriage, you can't have one without the other, as the song goes (oh, what a quaint idea!). So to reach a personal safe universe we need to see our self differently, which will then help us approach physical reality in a manner that truly allows us to become conscious creators unburdened with what Seth calls haphazard and unenlightened constructions. And this month's Seth Talk entry, just posted on our site, is about significances and subjective continuity in the spacious present - not at all as dry as it sounds! With this vital subject we start to move into the "how" behind using the spacious present to our great benefit and further away from a belief in cause-and-effect/linear time being the controlling element of our physical realities. And as usual with each new entry, you'll find dozens of short Seth quotes that clarify his points about the given topic. Not to be missed, those quotes!

SETH GROUPS REORGANIZED

And one other note, this one for those interested in finding Seth groups. We've reorganized the listings in Seth Groups/Networks alphabetically by city, state or country (depending on what's appropriate to the group), so finding a group in your area is now a piece of Halloween cake. And if you're in a group that's not yet listed, the evil eye will getcha!

LAST CALL FOR CONFERENCES

By now you have to be new to the Seth world or brain-dead (zombie, perhaps? Ohhhhh...) if you've missed all the talk and written word about the plethora of 2010 Seth conferences and workshops. We're down to the last three for the rest of the year now - Los Angeles (Oct. 23/24), Switzerland (Oct. 22/24), New York (Nov. 13/14). You can get further info on all of them on our site under, surprisingly, Conferences & Workshops.

In closing, I leave you with this Halloween poetry from an anonymous source (staying anonymous was probably a good idea):

Witches flying past on broomsticks,
Black cats leaping here and there,
White-robed spooks on every corner,
Mournful moaning in the air,

Goblins peering out of windows,
Spirit-things that rap and run-
But don't be scared - it's just October,
And one more night of Halloween fun!

Hugs and good cheer from Southern California,

Lynda

P.S. Come join some of us on Facebook at Lynda Madden Dahl. Love to see you there!


Dateline September 4, 2010: NEWSY EMAIL FROM SNI

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hello Seth Friends,

This will be the first short (and sweet, of course) email from SNI since we started sending them over a year ago. Circumstances this past month reflect a conspicuous lack of time on my part to pull together one of our newsy updates. The first couple of weeks I was intensely focused on my very ill, very dear 17-year old kitty, Yodi, who eventually passed on, I say with heavy heart. And what followed was a major and intense reorganization of a company I'm involved with (which isn't over yet). Those two ongoing events left me just enough time, here and there, to write this month's edition of Seth Talk for the SNI site.

So basically this email is simply to tell you that the newest entry is now up on Seth Talk. It's about the spacious present, and arising out of it, camouflage reality. The overall theme of the ongoing Seth Talk is "Living a Safe Universe," with a redefinition of the self a key part of the equation. As with the last entry on July 29, there are tons of not only great, but at times stunning, quotes by Seth.

Another interest of mine got dropped almost completely this past month, that of conversing with you Seth friends on my Facebook page. But I'm back now, for what it's worth. (For you newbies to SNI who are on FB, my page is listed under Lynda Madden Dahl.)

With that I'll sign off for today. Like I said, short and sweet! Do drop by SNI and check out the new and updated listings and photos now up. As usual, they show the breadth and scope of our very vital Seth global community.

My sincere best to you all,

Lynda


Dateline July 29, 2010: NEWSY EMAIL FROM SNI

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Greetings Seth Readers, I hope this note finds you happy, healthy and optimistic. Which leads into a marvelous Seth quote, good for our private as well as world lives. (Nov. 29, 1978, Personal Sessions, Vol. 5. The spacing is mine for emphasis).

"Natural optimism is a power in the individual and in the world. It believes...
in triumph
in pleasant, unpredictable surprises
in unexpected solutions
in joyful occurrences.
It is like the child’s anticipation of Christmas Eve,
and it is biologically ingrained."

Last month in a fit of unbridled optimism, I launched Seth Talk on our SNI website. I am happy to say my natural optimism paid off. Thanks, folks! What a pleasant, unpredictable surprise! And while we're on the subject of the triumphant launch of Seth Talk, I'll mention that Entry #2 is now posted. We're still on the subjects of action, the three creative dilemmas and identity, but now there are many Seth quotes to dive into, the first of eleven quote docs to come.

Ahhh, but Seth Talk's triumph isn't the only joyful occurrence lately in the Sethian world. Feast your eyes on these tidbits:

* Thought you might want to check out SNI's photo gallery. I recently uploaded a 1996 shot of Rob with seven of us (six in the picture, one behind the camera) during a visit to Elmira. I also posted one of Rob in front of the Water Street apartment taken that same weekend, as well as one of Jane from Rob's personal collection (although it's been published before). To see them, go to the Gallery > Seth Friends and Just Plain Fun, to its last page).

* Another great photo to check out in the Gallery shows a painting by Don Hutchinson. It's a composite picture of Rob's well-known paintings of Seth and Jane in the background, and a photo of Rob from SethNet '97 Elmira in the foreground. Don and his wife Dorcas had prints made of this truly marvelous work and graciously gave one to SNI. (Again, go to the last page of the Gallery to see it.)

* Hey, Downunder! Australia now has a Seth Group! As does the Netherlands! I'm happy to say SNI played a role in the formation of these groups by getting their coordinators in touch with Seth readers in each country via our email database. And we'd be pleased to do it for you, too. We can't zero in by city, just state, province or country, but it starts the interest brewing. To learn more about groups old and new, go to Seth Groups/Networks. And note the great outdoor photo of the Dutch folks on their first get-together.

* More pleasantly triumphant news, this time for our German-speaking Seth friends. Maurizio Vogrig (Switzerland) sent us a copy of their first newly designed magazine, Multidimensional Reality, and it is beautifully crafted. Their second edition is at the printers as we speak. For more info, go to Seth-Friendly Businesses and look for "Swiss Seth Readers Publish Seth Books and Magazine."

* German-speaking Sethies, another tidbit for you. The annual International Seth conference (in Zurich this year) is on October 22/24. Its two themes: The Magical Approach and Hypnosis. They've invited a famous hypnotist to do both a show and a workshop, which should be a joyful occurrence. :-) Learn more about the conference at Seth Conferences/Workshops. Their link also takes you to an English version of the conference information.

* And still on the subject of pleasant and optimistic conferences, don't forget the upcoming Colorado Seth Conference Sept. 9/13, with a theme of Listening: What Stories Do You Hear?; the West Coast Seth Conference Oct. 23/24, with a theme of Celebrating Seth; and the East Coast Seth Conference Nov. 13/14, with the same theme as the West, Celebrating Seth. Learn more about these joyful events at Seth Conferences/Workshops.

* Jeff Kiefer, our friend and developer of Seth Space (now with 550 members!), tells us the site has been upgraded and expanded to include features such as the ability to: directly connect with your Facebook page; synchronize your Seth Space information with your stuff on Facebook; create events and invite folks to your event; and more features are coming in the future. Seth Space really is a terrific site, guys. Just reading the threads is a kick! (Breaking news: just before we sent this email, Jeff told us the site was down due to hackers. The system message says, "Your Account Has Been Suspended." Ignore it! For status updates on the situation, go to our site and click on the tab Seth Space/Seth Singles.)

* And for you patient single Sethies, Jeff says the software he's been awaiting has just been released and is in testing. Once he knows it's stable, he will start development of Seth Singles. It will most likely take months to complete, given Jeff's busy schedule, but he said we can hope to see it before the end of the year. Keep the faith, guys, and know that unexpected solutions are on the way! (For Seth Single status updates, go to our site and click on the tab Seth Space/Seth Singles.)

Now that I have built your anticipation of a visit to our SNI site equal to that of a child's anticipation of Christmas Eve, I'll sign off. Oh, one more thing. As I mentioned in the last email, if you're on Facebook do drop by my site (Lynda Madden Dahl) and meet some other Sethies. Good quotes being thrown out all over the place!

Take care, everybody, and keep that natural optimism flowing!

Hugs and good cheer from Southern California,

Lynda


 Dateline July 1, 2010: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SNI! -- & WELCOME TO SETH TALK!

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Happy birthday to SNI! Sweet one year old and growing like a weed - an old American saying, international folks. :-) We started with a blank slate on July 1, 2009, and now ... a drum roll, please ... have email readers in 46 countries; 150 directory listings; 295 Gallery photos; 43 news items in Seth World News; and almost 20,000 visitors this year. We've corresponded one-on-one with hundreds of Seth readers around the globe, created and held two Seth-intensive weekend workshops, and brought you twice-monthly newsy emails for most of the year. It has been a fulfilling, interesting and very busy time.

Speaking of busy, in our last email to you we talked about how both Michael and I were in overload due to other professional commitments beyond SNI, and because of it would have to reorganize - which we did, partially by dropping the last two of four scheduled weekend workshops. But since then Michael has doubled down on "busy" by accepting a terrific position with a company 2,100 miles from his and Mary's home in Eugene, Oregon, necessitating a heavy travel schedule between home and corporate office, to say nothing of riding an impelling learning curve. In order to stay completely sane, Michael has had to cut back even further on his time devoted to SNI. Which means a couple things: we will not launch an SNI Facebook page this summer, as announced in the last email, and probably will not offer many Seth World News write-ups about specialized items and people that reach our attention.

Ahhh, but what we will do - have already done, actually - is open a new tab on our home page called Seth Talk. I'm excited about it because it will pretty much be my project, one that matches my inner inclinations very closely. Ever since I started reading the Seth material in 1984, most of my focus has been on attempting to understand the practical implications of what Seth says and then integrate it into my thinking as a given.

Not an easy task, as all of you know, because the learning goes on...and on...and on. But as a by-product of my ongoing focus, I've gathered to me hundreds upon hundreds of Seth quotes on various subjects that specifically clarify the crux of what Seth is saying or recommending or clearing up regarding the nature of reality, even if they leave to us the logical or intuitive jump in understanding as to their practical aspects.

So what I'll be doing with Seth Talk, among other things, is posting some of these quotes, nested together into a composite picture of what Seth says about certain subjects, such as action (also called the vitality of All That Is, or the crux of creation), or the spacious present (the only place where action happens), or significances (the true cause and effect, and brought about by action [thought, expectation, etc.] and happening in the spacious present, because that's the only time there is). Etcetera, etcetera. I'll post a new entry periodically (hopefully at least once a month), and those of you on our email list will get a heads-up when one appears.

So, to kick off Seth Talk, the first offering is now on our website. It's a long one because I wanted to give you some background about the purpose of the first grouping of Seth subjects to be reviewed over time and where they will eventually lead us. I hope Seth Talk will prove to be an intriguing journey through the Seth material from a different perspective than reading the books one at a time from cover-to-cover allows us, because the subjects and their content will be gathered from all books yet will be topic specific.

Anyway, folks, do come visit us when you get a chance. And if you're in the Facebook neighborhood, drop by my personal site (under Lynda Madden Dahl). Nothing much happening there to date, but I'm thinking about periodically posting some of the more intriguing Seth quotes I've come across over the years. Since "intriguing" is in the eye of the beholder, we'll see if you agree with my assessments. LOL!

And how could I close without waving the flag for the coming of Seth Singles? Jeff Kiefer, its wizard of creation, tells us it's hopefully on the horizon for later this summer. So hang in there, single Sethies, it's solidifying in Framework 2 as we speak!

Hugs to you all, folks, and a world of thanks for all you've done to help make SNI the up and coming crossroads of the global Sethian community. We've only just begun (catchy, huh?), together.

Lynda Dahl (and Michael Steffen)


 Dateline May 10, 2010: A MID-COURSE CORRECTION FOR SNI

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hi, Lynda here. Michael and I have learned a lot in the almost 11 months of the new SNI’s existence. One thing is that there is a very large contingent of Seth/Jane readers spread across the globe, many with no direct tie to other Seth readers. We’ve also learned that Seth readers in general are very much interested in some level of communication with others of like mind. And thanks, of course, to today’s online technologies, the vehicles are in place that allow communications great and small to happen.

Another thing we’ve learned is that SNI is well positioned to become over time a major focal point for Seth readers, a place to check into occasionally for the latest news about the world of Seth and where to find other Seth outlets, such as websites, blogs, conferences, articles, businesses, etc. We believe this to be the case because of the many thousands of visitors to our site since its inauguration and the fast growth of our email database.

And what Michael and I have also learned is that the SNI workload, even in our still formative beginning, is significant. Compounding the workload at present is the fact that both Michael and I run other companies that demand much of our time; and also that we’ve announced and launched four 2010 weekend-long workshops in the U.S. The planning, preparation and content creation of the workshops has taken dozens of hours, and as we saw with our first workshop two weeks ago in San Mateo, CA, each workshop will actually take a minimum six days of our time – two for the class itself, two travel days, and at least one prep day before leaving town and another when we return.

There is actually a point to telling you all of this. :-) We’d like you to know our short-range plans as well as give you a glimpse of what the future holds. First, we want to announce that our second workshop (in Boston on May 22-23) will be our last - we’re canceling Portland and L.A. The time we’ve already devoted to the workshop program has significantly limited our ability to stay on top of SNI, let alone promote its growth. And where the workshops reach a relatively small number of people, SNI overall has the potential to reach the world of Seth readers. Ergo, our reprioritizing.

Which brings me to what is next for Seth Network - its growth, partially defined as finding the alone global Seth readers and introducing them to a world of like minds. Which is what we’ve been doing these past 11 months, but soon even more so. To help find them, this summer we will launch an SNI Facebook page that guides them to SNI’s website; and once found, we want to offer them (and you oldies) more content on our SNI site, especially more news bulletins, articles and introductions to Seth folks (such as we’ve done in past emails and in Seth World News). There’s more, and we’ll get back to you later with those plans. For now we just wanted to give you a brief overview and explain the cancellation of the two workshops. (By the way, my personal Facebook page is found under Lynda Madden Dahl, and you’re invited to drop by for a visit.)

And don’t forget Seth Singles is coming this summer! (Like you could possibly forget, what with our constant reminders – LOL!) Here’s to the singles of the Sethian world. Their day is coming…. Go Seth!


 Dateline April 18, 2010: A SPRINGTIME HELLO FROM SNI

(Following is an email we sent today to our database, and for those of you not on our address list, we thought we'd like you to see it.)

Hi Seth Friends: It has been well over a month since we sent you one of our newsy emails - a long interlude, historically speaking. And we're sorry to say this one is only a stop-gap until things calm down in my So. California-based life and Michael's Oregon-focused one (with wife Mary Rouen). Part of the restive nature of current events is because our first 2010 SNI weekend workshop launches next week in San Mateo, and you can imagine the workload that generates. And the fact that Michael and I each run companies not associated with SNI - both of which seem to be in hyper-drive at the moment - limits our (linear) time.

But because SNI has had so many new folks sign up via email, we did want to welcome our newbies, say hello to our oldies, and wish everyone a very pleasant spring. Some of you we'll see in San Mateo next weekend or in Boston on May 22-23 (early bird special price ends April 22), and we're seriously looking forward to sharing with you laughs, serious discussion, and even a drink or two in the evenings. :-) And we'll be back online with more newsy emails for all of you down the road. (Who can forget our exciting coming announcement of Seth Singles?!)

So, that's it for now, folks. Talk to you when things calm down. And never forget our rallying cry - Go Seth!

The best of everything, Lynda (Dahl) and Michael) Steffen


 Dateline March 15, 2010: YOUNG ADULTS AND SETH, COMING TOGETHER SOON

In our website's home page intro letter, we say one of the desires of SNI is to find the youthful Seth readers, or what we consider young adults (teens through 20s). But we don't only want to just find them, we want to bring them together with each other. The project, long latent in our minds, took on greater significance in early March at the California Seth Conference when Paul Giurlanda, professor at St. Mary's College in San Francisco, gave a talk on how he brought Seth to the attention of his mostly Catholic students during his course "New Age Spirituality in America." (See Seth World News, Dateline Feb. 1: Seth Goes to College.) The frosting on the cake of Paul's conference talk was when he introduced four of his students and asked them to talk about their experience with the Seth material. None of them had been into "new age" when the course began, and most took the class because it filled a requirement for graduation. But after reading a couple chapters of The Seth Material, to a person they found themselves more drawn to Seth's ideas than to the objective academic paper they had to write on the book; and all are now actively reading Seth.

What struck us most, beyond the obvious implications of what the young people said, was that Paul's students were lucky. They had each other among which to bounce ideas, concerns and understandings as they grapple with the material. Many, probably most, young adult Seth readers don't know another person reading the books, let alone anyone their age. It started us thinking about what we can do on our website to facilitate meetings and conversations between this age group. We haven't laid out a plan yet, but at least it's percolating now. So stay tuned, folks. We'll get back to you when Seth Young Adults becomes a reality!


 Dateline March 14, 2010: A FABULOUS SNI WORKSHOP OFFER FOR YOUNG SETH READER

As part of our desire to get young Seth readers together to discuss the material, we're pleased to announce that SNI is offering a free registration to Seth readers under the age of 22 to any of our 2010 "Living a Safe Universe" workshops (see Workshops for further detail). If you know of a young adult who might enjoy participating in one of our events, please have them check out the information posted on our site, and make them aware that we will be in San Mateo, April 24-25; Boston, May 22-23; Portland, July 17-18; and Los Angeles, 21-22. If they're interested, have them write us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we'll send them special registration information. We'd love to see young readers participate in what we believe will be electrifying and inspiring events, and have them share with readers of all ages the heady sense of pioneering the Seth material toward breakthrough understandings that have very practical import on our lives. Perhaps you might consider joining us as well. :-) Go Seth!


 Dateline March 10, 2010: SWISS SETH READERS TAKE ACTION WHEN BOOK INTEREST WANES

In 1979, the first Seth book in German was published, soon followed by others. The books caught the attention of folks in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and in 1981 were so popular that readers formed the International Seth Organization in Switzerland, offering annual conferences - still in effect - in one of those three countries. But the public's interest eventually waned and the large publishing houses lost interest in the Seth books. Then, in 1999, Swiss Ursula Lang met Rob Butts at SNI's Elmira conference, and a Ouija board session convinced Rob that it was time to renew publishing efforts in German. Upon returning home, Ursula teamed with Maurizio Vogrig and formed Seth Publishing Company. To date they've published all nine of The Early Sessions, The God of Jane, and Sue Watkins' Speaking of Jane Roberts, with more to come. And this April they will rejuvenate online The Multidimensional Reality, the magazine of the International Seth Organization. And what drives Maurizio and Ursula to commit so much time and effort to their projects? Their strong desire to help revive interest in the Seth material. ** It's quite a story and can be read in both Seth-Friendly Businesses and Other Seth Sites under "Swiss Seth Readers Publish Seth Books and Magazine." Our hats are off to you, Ursula and Maurizio! You guys are great!


Dateline February 26, 2010: LIVING THE SAFE UNIVERSE YET?

A reminder to come join us in the San Francisco Bay Area April 23-24, folks, for the first of four US workshops offered by Seth Network. Its topic: Living the Safe Universe: Trust and Its Pivotal Role in Conscious Creation. Go to Workshops for details, folks, especially about the Early Bird special price.

BREAKING NEWS, SETH SINGLES UPDATE, Feb. 26

After some technical difficulties and a decision to add more features and upgrade the software, its designer Jeff Keifer has decided to hold off the launch of Seth Singles for several months. So we'll get back to you with a final date once Jeff's ready. Meanwhile, do visit Seth Space, Jeff's hot social networking site launched last summer (and a tab link on our site).

BREAKING NEWS, SETH SINGLES, Feb. 14

Sorry folks, we just got word that due to technical difficulties, Seth Singles will not open today. March 1 is guestimated to be the new launch, but if it happens sooner, we'll let you know.


 Dateline February 14, 2010: SETH SINGLES OPENS ITS "ARMS" ON VALENTINE'S DAY!

A hearts and flowers drum roll, please.....! Seth Singles, the first-of-its-kind Seth site opens its cyber-doors today - on the most lovely symbolic day of the year, to the global Sethian community! Jeff Kiefer, the site's mastermind, would love to see international singles use Seth Singles as a gathering place, whether finding pen pals the world over suits you, or connecting locally with others of like mind is a high priority. And if you're shy at first, use an anonymous name. Just don't miss out on this fun experience! It's free for the first several months, so there's nothing to lose. Since SNI's Lynda Dahl is single, she's the obvious choice on our staff to become a part of Seth Singles and report back to you old married folks about the activity in this very special, cyberspace cafe. So stay tuned, couples - and tune in, singles! (Enter through SethSpace/Singles.)

 Dateline February 11, 2010: A NEW YORK BOY WRITES ABOUT HIS ESP CLASS EXPERIENCES

Interested in learning what it was like to experience Seth Class first hand? Meet Rich Kendall, one of the NY Boys who is writing a retrospective of the time he spent in Jane’s ESP class in the 1970s. Rich is a fabulous writer and speaker who has been involved with the Seth material in many capacities. From publishing books to producing videos to writing and speaking, Rich has been intimately involved with the material since first attending class. Recently he spoke at the annual Swiss International Seth Conference, and has posted on our site an intriguing set of insights from that conference that goes beyond just a discussion of activities in ESP class. These reflections, found in Seth-Based Articles and titled Viva la Différence, provide an insightful perspective about people, beliefs and the richness found in our differing perspectives. In his upcoming book, Seth Speaks to Me, Rich reports on his experiences during class and on the long journeys back and forth from NYC to Elmira each week. A sample chapter of this work in process is posted in Seth-Based Articles, with the same title as his book. Rich is considering self publishing the work, but would be happy to respond to prospective publishers. Do stop by his website at www.richkendall-productions.com and meet our good friend.


 Dateline February 1, 2010: SETH GOES TO COLLEGE!

Have you ever wondered how Seth’s influence might find its way into some of our mainstream religious and educational institutions? Well, wonder no longer. We have found at least one example in the person of Paul Girulanda. Paul is a former (24-year) De La Salle Christian Brother who is a professor at St. Mary's College of California in San Francisco. Following a powerful past life regression, he started reading Seth and, after a time, got hooked. His interest in the material led him to include Seth as a featured part of a course he recently taught on “New Age Spirituality in America”. The account of how things went is contained in a “must read” article (as titled above) in Directory > Seth-Based Articles, in which Paul describes “… what happens when you give 15 healthy college students a copy of The Seth Material and require them to read it.” It is a fabulous story. And the associated listing contains more about Paul’s intriguing background. Don’t miss it! (FYI, Paul is to be the master of ceremonies and a speaker at the California Seth Conference in the San Francisco area March 6-7.)


Dateline January 15, 2010: A BLOW-YOUR-SOCKS-OFF SNI WORKSHOP COMING SOON

Just three months to the first of four Seth Network workshops for the year, folks. Those of you with SNI in the 1990s may have attended our very popular Consciously Creating Change workshops. Trust us when we say our new one will blow your socks off. If you heard Lynda’s talk at the 2009 conferences in Maine, San Francisco area, L.A or NYC, you already know what we mean, because the upcoming two-day workshops are meat for the bones of that “electrifying, groundbreaking” discussion [per the attendees' comments, honest :-)]. You can check out the workshop description and cities/dates at Workshops. Hope to see you in person this year!


Dateline January 15, 2010: CASC RELEASES DVD OF LYNDA’S 2009 TALK

Speaking of Lynda’s 2009 conference talk, the good folks at California Seth Conference (CASC) have just released a DVD of it. All of the proceeds go to CASC – that is, neither SNI nor Lynda financially benefits. We decided we’d rather help the fledging conference (their second is in March) stay around for a long, long time, and all donations help such efforts. And if you’re planning to attend one of the SNI workshops this year, do consider buying the DVD as either an intro to Lynda’s ideas or as a conference refresher. To learn more, click on Directory > Conferences/Workshops > California Seth Conference. (By the way, Lynda will be speaking at their March conference about the safe universe and living in trust.)


Dateline January 13, 2010: SETH SINGLES COMING VALENTINE’S DAY!

What could be more symbolically perfect for the single Seth reader than seeing Seth Singles launched on Valentine’s Day?! Jeff Kiefer, owner of the popular social networking site SethSpace (and web developer for SNI) has chosen February 14 to launch his latest brainchild. And Jeff’s looking for input on what you single Sethies would like to see on the site; that is, what profile questions would suit your needs. What info do you think is important to know about a prospective romantic partner? What Seth-oriented questions would you like to see asked in order to determine compatibility? Etc. To respond to Jeff, click on SethSpace/Singles. Once you’re on SethSpace, go to Forums.


Dateline January 4, 2010: A HEARTFELT GOOD-BYE TO A SETHIAN FRIEND

On January 3, Carol Funk, long-time member of the Seth community and founding member of the Colorado Seth Conference, passed on. Her intelligence and wit, to say nothing of her good heart, endeared her to many of us. May her husband of many decades, Jim, and their family find peace of mind soon, and may the rest of us wish her well on her journey forward – with our deepest, sincerest regret that her journey forward came too soon for us. A most moving video has been created by her grandnephew Chris Colvard, which brings Carol to life once again, if only in our imaginings. It is on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com//video/video.php?comments=&v=241329044308. Godspeed, Carol, from so very many of us, your friends.


Dateline January 1, 2010: SETH'S NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

It just would not be a proper New Year if someone didn't post Seth's resolutions. So, we are assuring the continuation of a wonderful tradition by providing an article that contains the four resolutions that Seth suggested to Jane and Rob on January 1, 1979. They provide a compelling reminder for all of us that one's focus creates, and that we can change our lives by changing our minds. While they get special mention on New Year’s Day, we should also remember that they are good reading on many other occasions throughout the year. These timeless gems may be found in the document file under the listing with this title in Directory > Seth-Based Articles. Enjoy!


Dateline December 15, 2009: HAPPY HOLIDAYS, SETH FRIENDS!

We want to wish you a splendid holiday season, full of good cheer and peaceful minds. And if you'd like a dose of Seth, we've posted "Christmas with Seth" in Seth-Based Articles, a compilation of some things Seth offers us about the season and our place in it. For instance, "Look at the Christmas tree; your cells and molecules shine a million times more brightly. Your eyes glitter with far greater light. You are love in corporeal form. You do not have to look for it or wonder where to find it or give it in packages with bright ribbon. You are packages with bright ribbon." After the holidays are over, we'll remove the document from the archives until December 2010, and then bring it back in its lovely gift wrap of words that resonate around the world.  - Merry Christmas, Seth and Jane and Rob!


Dateline December 1, 2009: SETH SINGLES, ANYONE?

At the last two conferences of 2009 (LA and NYC), the subject of single Seth readers attempting to find a partner who is compatible with their thinking came up in casual small group conversations. Actually, it's come up over the years, and this time we decided to do something about it. Enter our own Jeff Keifer, the web genius behind the development of our Seth Network site, as well as SethSpace (the social networking place for Sethies) and the California Seth Conference site. Jeff was very enthusiastic about the idea of establishing a meeting place for single Seth readers along the lines of, say, Match.com, and has indeed now secured SethSingles.com as its URL. Look for something in the first quarter of 2010 - which, of course, we'll bring to your awareness when it's ready to announce. Go Single Sethies!


Dateline November 30, 2009: JANE'S ESP CLASS MEMBERS EXPOSED!

We are pleased to announce a new Gallery section featuring photos from ESP class members, both then and now. Check out the new "Jane’s ESP Class Members" category for photos recently posted by Barrie Gellis (and a few others), one of the “New York Boys”. His pictures feature some of the regulars who made the weekly trip from NYC to Elmira for class each week. Barrie is a poet and writer who is active in the online Seth community and recently spoke at the East Coast Seth Conference. He has posted some of his writings in our Seth-Based Articles (including his conference presentation), listed both his blog and message board in our Blogs and Discussion Groups, and has a listing for his poetry book in Seth-Influenced Media. We very much appreciate Barrie’s contribution to our idea for a Gallery category just for Jane's class, and know you will enjoy it immensely as it expands over time. Keep your eye on it, folks.


Dateline November 28, 2009: FIND THAT UNIQUE CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM OTHER SETHIES

With Christmas around the corner, we want to bring to your attention the many gifts that can be purchased through our friends in Seth-Friendly Businesses and Seth-Influenced Media. Gifts like specialty candles; unique dolls that look like whomever you choose; a subscription to an arts-entertainment-holistic newspaper; divination products; voice training; past life regression, hypnosis, channeling, psychotherapy, and LCSW sessions; life coaching; games and books; T-shirts with special sayings and images; a website for your favorite person; Seth conference DVDs and CDs; music CDs; even electrical services or real estate! So, if you are looking for a unique gift or would like to support a Sethie when selecting something to purchase, do check out these listings. You will find that your fellow Seth readers are quite a creative bunch. :)


Dateline November 26, 2009: NANCY ASHLEY'S BACK ON OUR RADAR!

Good news for those of you around the Seth material in the 1980s. Nancy Ashley, one of the first authors to take the Seth material and make it "practical" in her three workbooks (Create Your Own Reality, Create Your Own Happiness, and Create Your Own Dreams), is considering another book, this time possibly on what Seth says about the emerging new species of consciousness. Whatever Nancy decides to write, count on it being excellent. (BTW, she's still living in Hawaii.) And as far as her iconic workbooks are concerned, while they have been out of print for years they are thankfully now available on Amazon in used format. Go to Seth-Influenced Media and look for the listing, "Three Seth Workbooks by Nancy Ashley," for what she has to say about them, and then check out Amazon. Do yourselves a favor, folks!


Dateline November 15, 2009: SETH & JANE ROBERTS ENGLISH LANGUAGE BOOK LISTING

Check out the listing of this name in the Seth-Based Articles section to find a file containing a list of titles and the latest/current publishers of the English language versions of the Seth/Jane Books. As we responded to inquiries from newer Seth readers concerning requests for Seth book lists and related publication information, we realized that it would benefit readers new and old to have a listing of the Seth and Jane books in a separate article on our site to which we could refer these types of questions. So, we created one! We hope that it will help those new to the material learn about books of which they might be unaware. It can also serve as a guide to longer term readers who may wish to fill out their collection. In the future, we will also be providing information on foreign language translations for our non English speaking friends.


Dateline November 14, 2009:  THE ATMOSPHERIC PRESENCE: A PSY-TIME DOCUMENT

Hello Seth friends, Lynda Dahl here. When all is said and done, without an innate, integrated faith and trust in ourselves, in All That Is, and in the nature of reality, we can read the Seth material until the cows come home and still create an unsafe universe for ourselves. On my personal journey into “safety,” I created a Psy-time document of excerpts from William James’ comments in Jane's book, The Afterdeath Journal of an American Philosopher, about the atmospheric presence. James is talking from his position after death, but I intuitively knew each comment was as relevant to me, alive and well in a physical reality, as to him. And I knew if I could truly see and experience what James saw and experienced, then it would ever so naturally become the beginning of my platform of safety in life. It has been more beneficial than I can express. This Psy-time document can be found in Seth-Based Articles.


Dateline November 12, 2009: SUPPORT YOUR FAVORITE SETH-FRIENDLY BUSINESS

From electricians to realtors, videographers to T-shirt creators, book publishers to web designers, hypnotherapists to life coaches, essay creators to high end film makers, and many things in between, our Seth Friendly businesses section illustrates the diversity of business pursuits undertaken by Seth readers around the world. This section of our directory has grown steadily since July and now holds a whopping 24 listings. We are very pleased by this level of activity and interest, and are excited to share the growing list of business offerings with visitors to our site. They not only provide valuable commercial opportunities, but also serve to illustrate the depth of influence that the Seth material has in the world. If you run a business and are not yet listed, we would love to have you join this directory and let your affiliation be known to the benefit of you and your fellow Sethies. And, for those of you looking for something unique, or just interested in the creative diversity that the Seth material can inspire, do check out the listings. You might find that a Sethie in your area has just the product or service that you are looking for…


Dateline October 31, 2009: AND THE BEAT GOES ON....AND THE BEAT EXPANDS

All Seth conferences and workshops are extraordinary in their energy and exuberance. How could they not be, when Sethies hungry for connection to, and discussion with, other Seth readers come together? On October 24-25, Rick Stack, publisher of many Seth books and producer of Seth conferences and workshops, held his first annual West Coast Seth Conference in Los Angeles, and it was unique in an important respect. It brought together folks from other current Seth affiliated groups for the first time in person, and symbolically displayed a glimpse of the cooperation and camaraderie emerging in today's Sethian world. Dawn and Morgan McKay, committee members with the Colorado Seth Conference, were there, as was Lawrence Davidson, the producer of the California Seth Conference (and an ESP class member). And our own Michael Steffen and Lynda Dahl were happy to be participating, along with Anne Marie O'Farrell (literary agent for the Seth books and Rick's wife) and some of Jane's ESP class folks. Jeff Kiefer's SethSpace was also represented by several people, and from the local scene came Gilbert Anaya, founder of the L.A. Seth Group, and some of his group friends. ** Expect to see more and more of this combined, shared focus on growing our global Seth community and enjoying the heck out of the ride forward, together.


Dateline October 31, 2009: AND THE BEAT EXPANDS....TO ORANGE COUNTY

What can come of Seth readers attending conferences and workshops solely directed to the Seth material? Seth groups, the heart of the Sethian global community. Lynda Dahl lives Orange County. Because of significant interest at the L.A. West Coast Seth Conference by Orange County attendees, Lynda scheduled a get-to-know-you dinner for November 8, and it will also include members of Lynda's new Seth Meet-Up group. You can read more about this emerging Orange County group in Seth Groups/Networks, and while you're there, do explore the other listings to see if there's a Seth group in your area. And if not, think about starting one like these folks have done through their listings: Tom and Judy Ewing (Maine), Jude Todd (Santa Cruz, CA), Larry Hause (Minneapolis), and Francois de Mecquenem (Paris). ** Go Seth!


Dateline October 27, 2009: THE LAST SETH CONFERENCE OF THE YEAR!

They're almost all over, folks. Only one Seth conference out of six is left in the year 2009, and it's the East Coast Seth Conference in NYC Nov. 21-22. To learn more about this last possibility of the season, click on Conferences and Workshops. ** Hope to see you there!


Dateline October 15, 2009: TWO SNI 2010 WORKSHOPS READY FOR REGISTRATION

Two of our four recently announced Seth intensive workshops for 2010 are now open for registration, with full pricing, hotel and other information posted in Workshops, our new tab between Gallery and Bookstore. We're starting in San Mateo in April, and then moving on to Boston, Portland and Los Angeles. Our topic is "Trust and its Pivotal Role in Conscious Creation," and as we say in our workshop description, according to Seth trust is the one ingredient that is mandatory in order to create consciously and sustain a reality that pleases us. So we will look at the Seth material through more perceptive eyes, first identifying Seth’s concepts that stress to us that we are not primarily human consciousness in linear time, but wholly non-physical consciousness using linear time for our own purposes – and why that difference in thought makes all the difference to trust...and conscious creation. And then we will move on to the practical implications of what Seth is saying and how to integrate it into our conscious thinking – which then, as the nature of reality dictates, will automatically become our realities. ** Hope you can join us, friends. What's more heavenly than a weekend immersed in Seth?!  :-)


 Dateline October 11, 2009: WHERE HAVE ALL THE SETH GROUPS GONE, LONG TIME PASSING...

As we've said before, Seth groups are the heart of the Sethian community. They pump continuing life and vigor into the minds and souls of Seth readers everywhere. Over the past decade they've been in decline, as evidenced by comparing groups listed in SNI's magazine of the 1990s, Reality Change: The Global Seth Journal, to those from that list that still exists. However, signs are beginning to sprout of their re-emergence. In Seth Groups/Networks, three listings are all about attempting to start new groups in Paris, Santa Cruz (California) and Minneapolis (Minnesota). We encourage anyone remotely interested to, through a listing, test the potential for your area, without a commitment to go further. Let Seth readers who live in your community contact you and just see where the probabilities take you. ** Go Seth!


Dateline October 9, 2009: WORLD'S FIRST SETH-BASED GAME

The creativity of Seth folks around the globe never ceases to amaze. Here's a sample we thought you'd appreciate. Designed by Yvonne Buonamici of Austin, TX, SethWorld is a totally new concept in gaming. Quoting from Yvonne's listing in Seth-Influenced Businesses: "It is a metaphysically based, completely open-ended game with no winners, no losers, and NO RULES! It is designed so that the players can create the game in the same manner we create our realities -- individually and en masse. The purpose of the game is to explore and uncover your beliefs, while having fun and stretching yourself creatively." Keep in mind that Christmas is just around the corner, Sethies!


Dateline October 1, 2009: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HAPPY 10,000th VISITOR!

Happy birthday to us all, folks! July 1 was our site launch date, and just today - exactly three months later - we logged in our 10,000th visitor! Coincidences and probabilities - marvelous constructs, aren't they? It's been a fun journey through those coincidences and probabilities, and it's our distinct pleasure to share that journey forward with so many global Seth readers. You guys are sincerely appreciated, and with us pulling together we truly CAN create the dream of a strong international Seth network. - Go, Seth!


Dateline October 1, 2009: MEET LAUREL DAVIES-BUTTS

Laurel Davies-Butts, Rob's second wife, lives in Sayre, Pennsylvania, where she and Rob spent many of their 23 years together after moving from Elmira, New York. She was instrumental in helping Rob prepare various books for publication over the years, as well as copying huge amounts of documents for the Yale archives and, in general, assisting with the Seth material. Recently we asked Laurel if she would consider writing whatever came to mind at the moment about Rob and her life with him. Gracious as always, Laurel's letter to all of us is included in Seth-Based Articles, along with a photo of her with Rob.


Dateline September 30, 2009: SETH AND WORLD BUSINESS

Seth readers are all over the globe and in all sorts of careers. We've enjoyed watching our directory of Seth-Friendly Businesses grow, and thought we'd bring a new one to your attention because of its unique focus on all things film. Sonic Voyage, of Rotterdam, Netherlands, makes high-end audiovisual productions, TV shows, films, commercials, video-clips and 3d animations. It's completely full-service, including movie-scoring, music production and post-production. If you get a chance, go to their listing and click on their website. Very professional, very "today," very impressive. The English version will be up and running soon!


Dateline September 15, 2009: SNI ANNOUNCES FOUR 2010 SETH INTENSIVE WORKSHOPS

Big news from SNI! We just posted info about four 2010 Seth intensive weekend workshops, titled "Trust and its Pivotal Role in Conscious Creation." We'll be taking our workshop to the San Francisco Bay area, Boston, Portland, and Los Angeles. Until our website pages are finished, you can read about the workshops in Workshops. Those of you from SNI of the 1990s, remember our very successful Consciously Creating Change workshops? Our new one is fashioned along similar lines, as you'll see in the write-up.


Dateline September 14, 2009: THE MOSSMAN ARCHIVE

Jerry Parmer, of Parmer Books in San Diego, California, recently received a for-sale consignment from Tam Mossman, Jane's editor at Prentice Hall and an observer at several of the Seth sessions and classes. The initial material Parmer Books received consisted of carbon copies of Seth sessions typed by Rob, a copy of a letter to Rob from Prentice Hall after Jane's death, releasing him from one of her future book contracts, two winter landscape paintings by Jane, and some writings by Jane, including an outtake from Oversoul Seven. It also included several photocopies of ESP class sessions, typed at the time by a class attendee from tape recordings and distributed to several people, and other materials not noted here. Some of the items have been sold, but others are still available. Please go to Seth-Influenced Media for further info.


Dateline September 11, 2009: SETH GOES TO YALE

As familiar as some of us are with the fact that copies of much of the Seth material is archived at Yale University, many still have not heard about it. Therefore, we've published a document in Seth-Based Articles that starts like this: "What does it take to become one of the most visited bodies of work in the Yale University Library archives? It takes being the Seth/Jane/Rob material." Indeed, as you'll read in the article, Jane's work is annually rated in the top ten collections visited - and there are 1,700 collections in the archives, many by world-renowned figures. (Go Seth!) We've also listed two Yale websites that give you info on what items of Jane's are now in the archives, and hours, directions, etc. if you plan to visit.


Dateline September 4, 2009: SCIENTIST SAHTOURIS PULLS THE SETHIAN WOOL OVER OTHER SCIENTISTS' EYES

Dr. Elisabet Sahtouris, evolution biologist, futurist and author, recently posted a fascinating must-read in Seth-Based Articles. It's titled "Consciousness as the Source of All Reality," and we'll let Elisabet's intro speak for itself: "After the Introduction in the attached document, written by myself as ‘Joseph Trebur’s words, this ‘speech’ is actually by Seth via Jane Roberts, who was called Rubert by Seth, a name I spelled backwards to make Trebur, while Joseph is the name Seth called Jane's husband Rob. I did this to try Seth’s concepts out on some scientists by pretending the lecture was given by a live speaker at Yale University, where all the Seth material is actually archived, to make it more credible to them. The ‘lecture and Q&A’ are a composite of only slightly edited, some reordered, quotes from The Nature of Personal Reality by Jane Roberts, 1974, the year I gave to this event. The Q&A questions are mine; the answer are Seth’s."


Dateline August 30, 2009: 1st CONFERENCE OF SETH/JANE ROBERTS, PARIS, FRANCE, 2010

We were very pleased to hear from Francois de Mecquenem that he is planning the 1st Conference of Seth/Jane Roberts in Paris on June 7, 2010. He will be releasing details later, but we wanted you to know about this major event now. If you'd like to communicate with Francois, his email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.; and his website is http://www.iblogyou.fr/sethroberts-france. Also, Francois has a listing in our directory under Seth Groups. * Best wishes, Francois!


Dateline August 29, 2009: SPREADING SETH TO CHINESE SPEAKERS: MEET SUNNY PAI

We first heard of Sunny Pai last month. She's an amazing Taiwan-born woman living near Toronto in Markham, Ontario, with ties to mainland China. Sunny has been reading Seth for five years and has already started a Seth group for Chinese-speaking folks in Markham. And quite interestingly, she travels to Zhuhai, China, two months every year to give hypnosis seminars, and while she has to be somewhat cautious, she works Seth into them and calls them "Mind, Body, and Soul." To read more about Sunny, look under Seth-Based Articles (where we've uploaded an intro to her background); Seth Groups (Chinese Speakers); Blogs and Discussion Groups (Chinese Speakers); Seth-Friendly Businesses (where her hypnosis company is listed), and our Gallery (under Seth Groups, Chinese Speaking). * You go, gal!


Dateline August 20, 2009: SETHNET MAIL LIST RETURNS TO SNI

In 1998, the original Seth Network launched the SethNet mail list, managed by volunteer Paul Helfrich. With the closing of the original SNI in 1999 upon co-founder Stan Ulkowski's death, we offered the list to Paul, and thankfully he accepted. Under Paul's auspices it flourished as an aspect of NewWorldView, bringing many thousands of Seth readers together over the last 10 years. Now that NewWorldView is changing focus, Paul has decided to close the list. In a very graceful gesture, he has returned the SethNet mail list name and structure to the hands of the new SNI for future development, if desired. Our sincere thanks to you, Paul! It feels as though a progeny of thought has returned home.


Dateline August 20, 2009: UPDATE ON TAIWAN SETH EDUCATION FOUNDATION

(See August 1, below, for background.) Almost 100 photos supplied by our Taiwanese Seth friends are now on display in the Gallery. These photos highlight some new information about their Foundation. You'll see pictures of Seth School, where the Foundation plans to build the Seth Training Institute. This is what they believe will become the spiritual home of their Seth family. Land was donated by a co-founder, and fundraising is underway for a building. * Also, take a look at Seth Village. It's a tranquil place offered to the public to stay, especially cancer patients hoping to gain self-healing power by tuning in to nature. They also offer Seth courses here, as well as meditation activities and counselors to guide people into self-awareness. Quite an amazing place.


Dateline August 15, 2009: VEREINIGUNG der SETHFREUNDE in EUROPE (Association of Seth-Friends in Europe):

Here's the intro to what they say in their listing: "Our 'Association of Seth-Friends' was founded in 1981 in Zurich, Switzerland. We have about 600 members all over Europe, though mainly in the German speaking countries, like Germany, Switzerland and Austria." They also hold an annual conference, and have for many years. Their upcoming one is in Switzerland (at times it is in Germany), and is listed below with other scheduled conferences. Also, do visit our Gallery (Seth Groups/Networks and Conferences/Workshops) and see many photos of this amazing group. Welcome, folks!


Dateline August 12, 2009: UPDATE FROM TAIWAN ON TYPHOON:

We heard from our Seth friends in Taiwan today after the typhoon hit with such strength. Here's what Chuan-Yao said: "Everything is OK with us. The damage mostly occurred in the southern part of Taiwan. But there was a lot of destruction in the farms and bridges. Our public traffic systems were badly influenced during last weekend. The flood destroyed many homes and killed some people. As we have learned in the Seth materials, this event has reunited our people in Taiwan. When we watched the TV news, everyone was moved. A lot of food and water are being sent to the flood area. Most people donate money to help those who are in need. The society is full of love now." Our hearts and hopes go out to our Sethian Taiwanese friends and all folks on the island.


Dateline August 1, 2009: TAIWAN SETH EDUCATION FOUNDATION

One thing of great interest that has recently been posted to our site is the news that there is a surprising amount of Seth activity in Taiwan. Dr. Tieng-sheng Hsu, a medical doctor, psychiatrist and author, has been reading Seth for over 15 years and in 2008 started the Seth Education Foundation. (He is also a past president of the Chinese New Age Society.) We've shared several emails with the Seth Family, as they call themselves, and have learned they are involved in a number of projects, some that take place at Seth Village. ** It's an amazing story and one well chronicled on SNI. You can read Dr. Hsu's bio in Seth-Based Articles, as well as an article written by him about the work he's done with cancer using Sethian ideas; and you can see many of their photos in the Gallery. Don't miss this unfolding story!

Note:

This new SNI site was happily launched on July 1, 2009.
Go Seth!
