What Would Seth Say to Me Today About What I'm Learning?

    • In your system of reality you are learning what mental energy is, and how to use it. You do this by constantly transforming your thoughts and emotions into physical form. You are supposed to get a clear picture of your inner development by perceiving the exterior environment. What seems to be a perception, an objective concrete event independent from you, is instead the materialization of your own inner emo­tions, energy, and mental environment.  (The Seth Material, Chapter 10)
    • You are learning to be co-creators. You are learning to be gods as you now understand the term. You are learning responsibility—the responsibility of any individualized consciousness. You are learning to handle the energy that is yourself, for creative purposes.  (Seth Speaks, Session 522)
    • You must understand the nature of reality before you can manipulate within it well. In physical reality you are learning that your thoughts have reality, and that you create the reality that you know.  (The Seth Material, Chapter 12)
    • In this existence you are learning to handle the inexhaustible energy that is available to you. The mass condition of the world, and the situation of each individual in it, is the materialization of man's progress as he forms his world.  (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 613)
    • The Point of Power Is in the Present. This experienced present also represents your psychic touchstone to all of your other existences. You are consciously aware of certain events, and unconsciously aware of much more that in one way or another you are learning to bring into conscious focus.  (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 667)
    • So there is a period of stress in between beliefs, so to speak, while you dispense with one set and you are learning to use another.  (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 617)
    • Consciousness is, among other things, a spontaneous exercise in creativity. You are learning now, in a three dimensional context, the ways in which your emotional and psychic existence can create varieties of physical form. You manipulate within the psychic environment, and these manipulations are then automatically impressed upon the physical mold.  (Seth Speaks, Session 515)
    • Ideas of good, better, best can lead you astray, for example. You are learning to be as completely as possible. In one way you are learning to create yourselves.  (Seth Speaks, Session 541)
    • 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)
    • You simply do not realize what you are now; and as I've said before, when you ask me questions about life after death, you automatically transpose—if you will forgive me—this lack of knowledge into the next realm. Therefore, sometimes I am at a loss to answer your questions. You are learning to know your­selves. At the rate you are going, it will take you some time.  (Seth Speaks, Appendix, ESP Class Session, June, 1970)
    • ...You possess a unique kind of consciousness, in which each individual has a hand in the overall formation of a world reality, and you are participating at a level of existence in which you are learning how to transform the imaginative realm of probabilities into a more or less specific, physically experienced world.  (The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Session 829)
    • Your kind of consciousness, relatively speaking, involves some intrinsic difficulties along with spectacular potentials. You are learning how to form reality from your own beliefs, while having at the same time the freedom to choose those beliefs—to choose your mental state in a way that the animals, for example, do not.  (Dreams, “Evolution,” and Value Fulfillment, Vol. 1, Essay 3)
    • Now, on your particular camouflage universe you are learning energy transformation.   (The Early Sessions, Book 2, Session 44)
    • You are learning to use your con­sciousness to become conscious co-creators of your own reality.  (Conversations With Seth, Vol. 2, Chapter 14)
    • In rational, intellectual terms alone, and using the terms the way [they are] usually used, you are learning a lot from someone who has no reality, and that is a good trick on your part! Finding yourselves is something else.  (Conversations With Seth, Vol. 2, Chapter 14)
    • You are learning to use the creative energy of which you are a part, and you are indeed quite isolated, so you cannot do much harm, in your terms!  (Conversations With Seth, Vol. 2, Chapter 17)

By Lynda Madden Dahl:


What Would Seth Say to Me Today About Freedom?

LET FREEDOM RING!
    • “All you have to do is realize your own FREEDOM. You form the reality that you know, not esoterically, not symbolically, not philosophically. Some great oversoul doesn't form it for you.”  (Seth Speaks, ESP Class Session, Tuesday, Feb. 9, 1971)
    • "My first purpose, therefore, is to make you aware of the inner identity of which you are a part, and to clear away some of the intellectual and superstitious debris that prevents you from recognizing your own potentialities and FREEDOM. Then perhaps you can begin to learn the many ways in which that FREEDOM can be used."  (Seth Speaks, Sess. 525)
    • “(The geese) attract you because of their instinctive knowledge, and they represent the inner FREEDOM that man is in the process of objectifying on a conscious level.”  (Nature ofPersonal Reality, Sess. 648)
    • “Your sense of identity, FREEDOM, power, and love would be immeasurably enhanced if you could understand that what you are does not end at the boundaries of your skin, but continues outward through the physical en­vironment that seems to be impersonal, or not‑self.”  (Seth Speaks, Sess. 682)
    • “I simply want to make it clear that vast possibilities of progress are possible, and to stress the fact that each personality has full FREEDOM.”  (Seth Speaks, Sess. 547)
    • “It is vital that you throw aside old concepts of the self and of the soul before you can begin to understand the FREEDOM of your own selfhood.”  (“Unknown” Reality, Vol. 2, Sess. 730)
    • “The Holy Roman Empire united a civilization under one religious idea, but the true brotherhood of man can be expressed only by allowing the FREEDOM of man's thought under the banner of cooperation; and only this will result in the fulfillment of the species, with developments of consciousness that in your terms were latent from the beginning.”   (“Unknown” Reality, Vol. 1, Sess. 690)
    • "The man who does not realize his basic independence from the physical system will not have the same FREEDOM within it."  (Early Sessions, Book 5, Sess. 208)
    • “In your realm of reality, there is no real FREEDOM but the FREEDOM of ideas, and there is no real bondage except for the bondage of ideas (intently), for your ideas form your private and mass reality.”  (Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Sess. 855)
    • “The birth of a conscious mind, as you think of it, meant that the species took upon itself free will... The ‘new’ consciousness accepted its emerging triumph—FREEDOM—and was faced with responsibility for action of a conscious level.”  (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 634)
    • “My purpose is not to come between you and your own FREEDOM by giving you ‘answers,’ even to the most tragic of problems. My purpose is to reinforce your own strength, for ultimately the magic of your being is well equipped to help you find fulfillment, understanding, exuberance and peace.”  (“Unknown” Reality, Vol. 1, Intro Notes by Rob Butts)
    • “There is no such simple end to the life that you know, such as the story of heaven. There is the FREEDOM to understand your own reality, to develop your abilities further, and to feel more deeply the nature of your own existence as a part of All That Is.”  (Seth Speaks, Sess. 547)
    • “The creative power to form your own experience is within you now, as it has been since the time of your birth and before. You may have chosen a particular theme for this existence, a certain framework of conditions, but within these you have the FREEDOM to experiment, create, and alter conditions and events.”  (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 615)
    • “Your reality is one in which the greatest FREEDOMS have been allowed.”  (“Unknown” Reality, Vol. 2, Sess. 733)
    • “While physical, you follow physical laws, or assumptions. These form the framework for corporeal expression. Within this framework you have full FREEDOM to create your experience, your personal life in all of its aspects, the living picture of the world.”  (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 613)
    • “There is no need to justify your existence. You do not need to write or preach to justify yourselves, for instance. Being is its own justification. Only when you realize this can you begin to utilize your FREEDOM.”  (Seth Speaks, ESP Class Session, Tuesday, Feb. 9, 1971)
    • “Exuberant ideas of FREEDOM, spontaneity and joy automatically collect others of their kind.”  (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 616)
    • “Each reader is a portion of his or her own entity, and is developing toward the same kind of existence that I know... Each personality is aware to some extent of the true FREEDOM that belongs to its own inner consciousness.”  (Seth Speaks, Sess. 514)
    • “To some extent, the feeling of grace is your emotional recognition of the necessity, purpose and FREEDOM, the innate appreciation, of your rightness and your place in existence.”  (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 637)
    • “You do not need drugs, hypnotism, or even meditation. You only need to allow and direct the FREEDOM of your conscious mind.”  (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 640)
    • “Your free will allows for the FREEDOM of any belief, including one that says you are unworthy, with no right to your existence.”  (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 648)
    • "In order for consciousness to develop in your terms, there must be FREEDOM for the exploration of all ideas individually and en masse. Each of you are living entities, growing toward your own development.”  (Nature of Personal Reality, Ch. 12)
    • “Since feeling is so often the cohesive with which mind builds, it is feeling itself which must be changed if you would find FREEDOM from your particular plane of existence at your particular time.”  (Early Sessions, Book 1, Sess. 13)
    • “You can then realize that you have cowered before contradictory beliefs for years, rise up in anger against them, and quite literally begin a new life of FREEDOM.” (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 642 )
    • “Within the basic framework of the body chosen before physical birth, the individual has full FREEDOM to create a perfectly healthy functioning form. The form is, however, a mirror of beliefs, and will accurately materialize in flesh those ideas held by the conscious mind.” (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 626)
    • “Again, in your dreams you work with probabilities and decide which ones will become your physical ‘true facts.’ Here you have great FREEDOM both individually and as a race. Here each man works out his own destiny, and with the use of this dream information quite consciously.”  (Nature of Personal Reality, Sess. 671)
    • “All excursions into outer reality come as the psyche attempts to reproduce in any given ‘exterior’ world the inner FREEDOM of its being.”  .”  (“Unknown” Reality, Vol. 2, Sess. 713)
    • “The soul or entity has complete FREEDOM of expression. It changes its form to suit its expression, and it forms environments like stage settings, and worlds to suit its purposes. Each setting brings forth new developments.”  (Seth Speaks, Sess. 522)
    • “Theories of probabilities will be seen as practical, work­able, psychological facts, giving leeway and FREEDOM to the indi­vidual, who will no longer feel at the mercy of external events—but will realize instead that he (or she) is their initiator.”  (“Unknown” Reality, Vol. 2, Sess. 742)
    • “All That Is had to surprise himself, itself, her­self, constantly, through freely granting itself its own FREEDOM, or for­ever repeat itself. This basic unpredictability then follows through on all levels of consciousness and being.”  (“Unknown” Reality, Vol. 1, Sess. 681)
    • “Many of the ideas given in this book can be used most advantageously to solve personal problems. If these concepts are understood, then the individual should realize the FREEDOM he has to operate purpose­fully within the structure of physical life.”  (Seth Speaks, Sess. 594)
    • "Now, my words will not, I hope, be used to begin a new dogma. My dogma is the FREEDOM of the individual. My dogma is the sacrilegious one—that each of you is a good individual.”  (“Unknown” Reality, Vol. 2, Appendix 18)
    • “In the next century, the inner nature of man, with these developments, will free itself from many constraints that have bound it. A new era will indeed begin—not, now, a heaven on earth, but a far more sane and just world, in which man is far more aware of his relationship with his planet and of his FREEDOM within time.”  (Seth Speaks, Sess. 586)

By Lynda Madden Dahl:

What Would Seth Say to Me Today?

No apple tree tries to grow violets. A false belief, a limiting one, is as ambiguous to your nature as any apple tree's idea that it is a violet plant. It could not produce violets, nor could it be a good apple tree while it tried to.

    • …The atmospheric presence and knowing light sustains you.
    • You live in a safe universe. …
    • This is a valid psychic truth.Any belief in an unsafe universe sets up resistance and self-protection.
    • Faith is the agent in which growth can happen.
    • You cannot equivocate. You have a will for a reason.
    • …You must trust your own nature, for it has a purpose.
    • You cannot equivocate. You either trust the self or you do not.
    • It is far better to trust, for you open up Framework 2 so that benefits become available that might otherwise not be.
    • And if it seems that a trust is betrayed, the overall picture will prove to be far different.
    • …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.
    • …A state of grace is provided you in which you can take action without care, without the anticipation of impediments.
    • 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.
    • …In your larger picture there are no errors, for each action, pleasant or not, will be redeemed.
    • There are literally many probable you’s. You can draw upon their abilities...
    • Alter your beliefs and any probable self can, within certain limitations, be actualized.
    • …The ideal seeks expression. It often seems to change or alter in ways not understood. Yet those same distortions may be the very openings that allow growth and change.
    • …Your exterior improvements are the result of inner workings, and they represent the growth of inner confidence.
    • Your conscious mind is always trying to give you a clear picture, but you often allow preconceived ideas to block this intelligence.
    • The mistaken belief is one that does not fit the basic conditions of your inner being.
    • You can quicken your psychic experiences if you stop thinking of impediments.
    • …Thoughts of abundance affect the inner order of events.
    • Your ideas of time are detrimental. Time works with you, not against you.
    • You are tuning into another channel, experiencing a reality that is not only quite real, but presents a far truer picture.…It is as if you are now standing on a hilltop, surrounded by clear brilliant air.

By Lynda Madden Dahl:


What Would Seth Say to Me Today About Goals?

Your goals are usually conceptualized desires, and once formed they act…like magnets, drawing from those vast fields of interrelatedness…conditions best suited to their fulfillment.

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.
    • When the intellect is used properly, it thinks of a goal and automatically arouses 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.
    • 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 a 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.

    • Once you begin consciously working with Framework 2, help, support, solutions – all begin to come, 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.
    • They may appear suddenly, or they may not appear in the order in which you think they should, because your vision must be limited in comparison to that available in the spacious present.
    • All energy at the inner self’s disposal is concentrated to bring about the results asked for by the conscious mind.
    • Your inner self brings about your desire, but also considers it in the light of your entire life situation, so that it comes about in the best way - and time - possible.
    • Your conscious goals fit in with your unconscious natural goals, then – the primary ones given at birth. You are right with yourself again.

Expectancy and inner confidence always bring the best results with the least effort.

    • The conscious mind does not have to have all the information required. It only needs to have the faith that means are available, even if those means are beyond its own scope of activity.
    • Comparatively speaking, a small number of clearly felt connections with Framework 2 can undo a year’s doubts.
    • Natural optimism is a power in the individual and in the world. It believes in triumph, in pleasant, unpredictable surprises, in unexpected solutions, and joyful occurrences.
    • 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 desires to pass.

To act in an independent manner, you must begin to initiate action that you want to occur physically.

    • You change your focus point. You change what you consider significant.
    • This is done by combining belief, emotion and imagination, and forming them into a mental picture of the desired result.
    • Concentrate upon the goal, rather than the means of attaining it, and you will attain it.
    • It is your feelings and your impulses that you trust that will lead you to whatever you want.
    • When you learn to trust your feelings and your impulses, something very strange happens. They turn quite trustworthy.

Your clear intent sets forces working for you. The clear intent takes it for granted that the results will indeed be highly beneficial, and not cause detriments.

    • Thoughts of abundance affect the inner order of events.
    • You can think of what you will do with the money – how you cause it to increase life’s enjoyment, which will in turn benefit you and others.
    • Such imaginings can be quite helpful.
    • Ask and you shall receive. Ask half-heartedly and you shall receive in exactly that measure.
    • I would like you to give suggestions before sleep that in one way or another during the dream state your knowledge will be increased.
    • You doubt your ability to impress your desires upon the (spacious present) properly. Your faith is not secure here.
    • Rupurt did not have to do anything of a conscious nature, except to state his intentions.

The physical planning carried out, then, is in line with the envisioned future, and brings it about.

    • You are at times ignoring significant clues that say your desires are being formed, seeing them instead as insignificant.
    • Now that causes an additional tension - and impediments - that slow down the process to whatever degree, which is exactly what you want to avoid.
    • 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.
    • 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 realities according to their fears.
    • 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.

By Lynda Madden Dahl:

What Would Seth Say to Me Today?

"You recognized the overall vitality of our material, but you did not realize that it meant a complete reorientation of your attitudes. You did not realize that you were being presented, not merely with an alternate view of reality, but with the closest approximation you could get of what reality was, and how it worked, and what it meant."

"You must become consciously aware of what you tell yourself is true every moment of the day, for that is the reality that you project outward."

    • You stand within the miracle of yourself and ask for signs.
    • You are not now what you were ten minutes earlier. You are not the same being physically, psychologically, spiritually, or psychically, and ten minutes later you will be different again.
    • (You are) given the greatest gift of all: You get exactly what you want to get. You create from nothing the experience that is your own.

All you have to do is realize your own freedom. You form the reality that you know, not esoterically, not symbolically, not philosophically. Some great Oversoul doesn’t form it for you.

    • (You are) free to accept and develop, from the miraculous banks of reality, those experiences and emotions that you want, and to reject those you do not want.
    • Forget the cringing self that you sometimes are and remember, instead, the magic essence of your own being that sings even now through your fingertips. That is the reality which you are seeking.
    • In the inner world, your desires bring about their own fulfillment, effortlessly. That inner world, and the exterior one, intersect and interweave. They only appear separate.
    • In the physical world, time may have to elapse, or whatever. Conditions may have to change, or whatever. But the desire will bring about the proper results.
    • The feeling of effortlessness is what is important.
    • You know that you hallucinate the room.
    • Your entire physical environment comes as naturally out of your inner mind as words come out of your mouth.

The environment expresses your personality. This is a literal and not symbolic truth.

    • So environment is not a separate thing in itself, but the result of perceptive patterns, and these are determined by psychological structure.
    • Mental images, accompanied by strong emotion, are blueprints therefore upon which a corresponding physical object, or condition or event, will appear.
    • The intensity of feeling or thought or mental image is, therefore, the important element in determining its subsequent physical materialization.
    • The more intense the core (expectation), the sooner the materialization.
    • You get what you concentrate upon.
    • The concentration upon a problem brings about a kind of mechanical repetition, a repeated type of hypnotic focus.
    • You change your focus point. You change what you consider significant.
    • 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.
    • You are not “programmed.” Nothing happens because it must happen.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • You set your problems in the hope that you will solve them. You did not set them like millstones about your neck.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • You forget your home so that you can return to it enriched.
    • To understand the multidimensional self is to use it.
    • To change your world you must change your thoughts.

A Psychic Manifesto, by Jane Roberts

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 accidently created stars.
Let us each dare to open our dream’s door,
And explore the unofficial thresholds, where we begin.

(from The God of Jane)


When all of Seth’s words are read and absorbed, when all of the intricacies of his statements are clarified, when all is said and done, his bottom line message is clear: We live in a safe universe. It is a message of such startling proportions and certitude that we stand in awe of its scope of possibilities, for ourselves and for our world.

And then reality sets in, a moment at a time. We fully believe Seth – that is definitely not the issue. The issue, for many of us, is that we know we live in a safe universe, no problem; it’s just that our personal universe, our reality, doesn’t always reflect that safety. We’re still creating those haphazard and unenlightened constructions Seth talks about, the ones that take us under, that seem to harm our way of life, the ones that reflect depression or illness or desperation or hopelessness. The ones that come from a belief in cause and effect.

And make no mistake, that is exactly where they come from. I am assuming you’ve read all of Seth Talk to date, so you know quite well, thanks to Seth, that the underlying issue that causes our unenlightened constructions is our acceptance of linear time. Or, perhaps better said, our non-conscious use of subjective time. Because on one level we soundly reject the idea of linear time/cause and effect – we know it’s a fallacy constructed as a camouflage framework for physical reality. It’s just that we haven’t trained ourselves sufficiently to change our knee-jerk reaction to that old belief yet. It still overrides our acceptance of the spacious present, or at least our conscious working relationship with said present.

Yet as we so well know, when the spacious present becomes our platform of being, when we really make the conscious shift in our thinking that allows us to use our knowledge of the spacious present, we’re home free – we’re in the ultimate position to create our realities with conscious understanding. And that, according to Seth, is his main message to the world and the next step in the evolution of our consciousness.

And that is also why I chose to write Seth Talk, as I mentioned earlier, from the “top” down, rather than the “bottom” up – from All That Is to identity to consciousness, and a discussion of the process of creation, which is identical for all consciousness, no matter whether it is in physical reality or is a grand psychic gestalt that creates worlds. That is, I didn’t start with the physical self awash in its beliefs in a concrete physical world honed through cause and effect, and try to talk our way out of it. I chose, instead, to start by virtually ignoring the physical world except as effects caused by consciousness in the spacious present.

And why? Because it’s the true, the one-and-only, picture. Everything else is camouflage, so why on earth waste our time by dismantling illusion in a quest to find truth? Why not skip to the truth and determine instead how it creates illusion? That’s the ultimate quest, the freeing quest; in my opinion, the only quest worth its salt in maximum knowledge.

But it’s always more than just about the quest, isn’t it? Why quest unless there’s a practical reason, a comfortable outcome that has meaning to us in our physical reality existence? So a quest of the sort Seth suggests can end up as our practical ticket out of debilitating experiences and into a more steady stream of refreshing outcomes. So questing isn’t the answer, it’s the path. And what’s the million dollar magical ingredient that pushes us from questing into change so great it results in those refreshing outcomes? There’s only one answer that fits the criteria, and it is trust.

Seth Talk has been all about living a safe universe by redefining the self. And to what purpose? So we can trust. Because that’s where the quest ends. It can start with trusting All That Is, but in some ways that’s a remote kind of trust, removed from us and our daily interactive lives. It can continue with trusting our inner self and maybe our entity, but that’s also a remote kind of trust, because, like trusting All That Is, it’s not called into moment-by-moment use throughout our days. And the same goes for trusting a safe universe and the flow of creation. Unless we bring trust closer to home it stays a quest, not an outcome.

The final leap of faith that takes us from questing to results has to be the trusting of our self, an intimate, always constant trusting. As Seth tells us in many different ways, we are miracles of creation and creators of miracles. We are All That Is expressing itself as identity which is conscious of itself, using action to create realities. Because we are part of All That Is, we share its ability not only to create but to be within our creations. Or, better said, its inability to be apart from its creations.

And if we cannot be apart, then we must understand and trust the package of divine gifts that define us. Since we cannot be separated from All That Is, we are integral to its three dilemmas of creation. We come from identity and action and consciousness, and we use the spacious present, significances, suggestion, the moment point, probabilities and our mental acts as our playing field of creation.

But we not only use this playing field, we are the playing field, because the playing field is part of All That Is. We are our spacious present, our significances, our suggestions, our moment point, our probabilities and our mental acts. We are our own reality, never found anywhere but within our own identity. And, of course, we are our inner self and entity, we are the guiding force of our self as well as being our self.

This, then, is the redefinition of the self. This is who we are and why we can create. We are creation, not simply the created. When we forget we are creation, we become so entwined in the created part of our self that we stop trusting. Trust must come from remembering – and living – the truth of our self moment by moment. It cannot stay remote and make any sustainable difference in our life.

Seth says, “You sit within the miracle of yourselves and ask for signs.” It’s our time to stop asking for signs and live our miracle. It’s time to trust our amazing selves. Seth says it can be effortless. Let us believe him and make it so. Let us seriously and with enthusiasm explore the unofficial thresholds where we begin and which define us and our creative abilities.

Seth:

    • You cannot equivocate. You either trust the self or you do not.
    • You must trust the self some time. I suggest you do it now.

Years ago I set a goal, and it was actually words spoken by William James in Jane’s marvelous book, The Afterdeath Journal of an American Philosopher: The Worldview of William James. In it he talks about his life after death and how different he feels knowing he’s surrounded by what he calls the Atmospheric Presence or Divine Mood (Seth’s version of All That Is). He says, “A steady confidence sustains me and a stronger sense of balance than I’ve ever known.”

Almost everything I now do with the Seth material has its purpose in that quote. It has become, for me, the embodiment of my own purpose for this lifetime. I see it as the ultimate possibility found in physical reality, the perfect platform upon which to consciously stand, the platform defined by trust of self. The perfect platform, and the only one, in my opinion, upon which to build a sustainable personal safe universe.

Thank you so much for making this long Seth Talk journey with me. As always happens when I write about the Seth material, I learn so very much about myself. So it has been a pleasure and a learning experience sharing time and thoughts with you. I may be back later in the year with other subjects that capture my attention, but for now I’ll sign off, wishing you a fine summer filled with marvelous creations.

My sincere best to you!

By Lynda Madden Dahl

Seth: “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 condition of my own existence, nor can I trust myself.... And therefore I must protect myself, and I must set up my defense in whatever way I can, to protect myself in a universe that I cannot trust, and to protect myself from a self that is evil and flawed.”

What constitutes an unsafe universe? If All That Is had perfected an unsafe universe as the model for its creations, what would it look like? One of the most obvious frameworks of such a universe would be an abundance of fear, since that’s the emotion engendered by a lack of safety. And that would be closely followed by the creation of seemingly endless protections against all that is feared. With fears and protections in place, the consciousness inhabiting such a model could go unhappily about the business of creating its reality.

But All That Is instead created a safe universe, one completely devoid of the need to fear, where protections were not only unnecessary, but quite contradictory to the safe-framework model, and one where consciousness could happily go about the business of creating its reality.

Seth tells us we live in a safe universe, and he tells us this is a psychic truth. He’s not saying, however, that our personal universe is always seen as safe, simply because we have the free will to play at not being safe, if it suits our needs (i.e., resonates with our thoughts, emotions and imaginings). But underneath our creations is a reality of complete safety, always inviolate.

So which do we choose, a safe universe or an unsafe one? As Seth asks us, “Which you? Which world?”

Seth says, “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.”

So fear is definitely the issue that needs to be resolved, and not just a fear here and there, but a whole new mindset that scoffs at the idea of fear. Our personal safe universe is of our own making, but we can’t take it half way and expect to live a reality free of fear. Like Seth says, “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.”

Seth goes on to tell us, “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.”

Believing in a safe universe is a first step for us, albeit a huge first step. It immediately eliminates the belief of outside forces harming us – whether those forces be people, events, strange powers or, not insignificantly, even the past. It puts the responsibility of “un-safety” squarely on our shoulders – which is exactly where it needs to be. How else can we change unpleasant circumstances unless we take responsibility for their creation? And how very fortunate are we to have such a get-out-of-jail-free card? We must truly believe we have the ability to change our circumstances. Why? Because we can.

According to Seth, “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.”

So, it’s up to us as to which world we choose to inhabit, the one that is basic to the safe nature of the universe, or the one that is unnaturally created in line with our fears. Whichever we choose, we are responsible for its expression in our reality, because the “ideal” is always expressed. Which us? Which expressed ideal? Which world?

Speaking of worlds to inhabit that reflect a safe universe, I find in Jane's wonderful little novel, Oversoul Seven and the Museum of Time, a model to aspire to. In it, Oversoul Seven and a rather motley group of his twentieth-century aspects come together in a very odd set of circumstances.

From Seven's broader perspective, he realizes that underlying the surface events that they are all involved in is the real drama, and it's about something called the Codicils. It becomes Seven's task to fig­ure out what the Codicils are and why they're so important, and then to se­cure them in time and space for future generations.

Seven ends up fast-forwarding through time to the twenty-fifth century, where yet another of his aspects resides. This person, called Monarch, is the head of an archeological dig at which the Codicils were discovered some 200 years pre­vi­ously, and which altered civilization as it was then known.

In honor of the Codicils and their tremendous impact on humanity, Monarch built a replica of a house from the nineteenth century where the Codicils were first penned—and this replicated house became a world museum which held the Codicils, and it was called the Museum of Time.

It’s a wonderful story and full of learning for all of us. But most important to us today is how Monarch's twenty-fifth century world functions. Paranoia has not been felt for decades. Crime is unknown to the people. Indeed, at one point Monarch thinks to himself that no thievery has been committed in his lifetime. He goes on to remember that all social diseases have been eliminated for over a century.

Monarch says that the causes of such things have been done away with almost naturally, as humankind taught itself about the self and its own potentials and abilities.

And certainly we Seth readers are on that journey. We started it with our first Seth book, and we’ve come a long way. But Monarch’s world is one where the safe universe concept is a given, where it’s practiced, not just accepted in theory; where a complete trust in everything important is the mode of the day, like trust in All That Is, like trust in their inner selves, like trust in themselves, like trust in the nature of reality.

The people of Monarch’s world could not have created lives free of fear without that trust – which actually is what gives the safe universe concept life…and reality.

Yes, indeed, a world for us to aspire to.

To live a safe universe takes a profound belief in and trust of the self. And that’s why we’ll end Seth Talk next time, our last entry, with our redefinition of the self, the one we’ve been building here for the past year. Meanwhile, on to some Seth quotes that so very much help us understand far more deeply what a safe universe entails and what it takes to maintain it. – Go Seth!

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 atttract 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.

By Lynda Madden Dahl

Seth says, “To understand that you create your own reality requires an ‘awakening’ from the normal awake state. Realization itself does change the ‘rules of the game.’ This recognition does indeed involve a new performance on the part of your own consciousness, a mental and imaginative leap that gives you control and direction over achievements that you have always performed, though without your conscious awareness.”

We’ve come a long way over the months from Seth Talk’s entry #1 to this one, and the focus has been on broadening the definition of our self so that we can live a safe universe. That’s our goal and, good for us, we’ve learned or reminded ourselves of many of Seth’s concepts that dovetail with our need for that expanded learning. But as we all know quite well, knowledge itself will not set us free. If that were the case, we’d all be healthy, wealthy and wise after reading our first Seth book.

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 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.

So what is it we have to trust? How about our literal oneness with All That Is and our inner self? The subjective nature of time and lack of cause and effect? That what we see is actually camouflage in the spacious present made to look like it resides in time and space? That action - the driving force of creation - is given direction through suggestion composed of thought, emotion and imagination? Okay, the list goes on and on and on, no doubt about it. So much to learn to trust, it seems.

But is that true? Is there really so much to trust? In one regard, yes, because each of those components of knowledge, and many others, are actually facts that we must accept as true, if we’re to throw off the yoke of the one-line stage of consciousness Seth discusses in entry #1, and stop creating haphazard and unenlightened constructions. So they can’t be downplayed. But they can be gathered under the banner of a whole trust, one trust that by nature encompasses – nay, transcends – the sum of its parts. And that one trust is of our self.

Seth tells us, “In each person, the ultimate and unassailable and unquenchable power of All That Is is individualized, and dwells in time.” And he says, “A portion of All That Is resides within and is a part of every consciousness. Every consciousness is therefore cherished and protected individually.” This, then, is the ultimate basis for our trust, the platform upon which we stand and which never wavers or changes. It simply is.

But at times, maybe most times at first, we can’t see it, so we attempt to answer the questions of the mind in order to allow ourselves to trust. That’s what drew us to the Seth material in the first place, perhaps even when we weren’t aware that that was our cause or path. So answering the questions is important, because the soul’s desire is to trust, and the mind, in order to trust, normally needs understanding and assurances. And what does a composite picture of what we learn from Seth bring us? A new, broader definition of the self.

Seth says, “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.” As we develop our understanding of the Seth material and experience it in our daily lives, change starts showing itself here and there because we start to trust here and there. But what we need ultimately is full, unilateral trust. And Seth tells us, “...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.”

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 those quotes seem to cover the basic elements.

And do we have any wiggle room with a full commitment to trust, perhaps, like we said above, just trusting here and there? Yeah, sure. :-) Our friend and advisor says, “If you cannot trust that which keeps you alive, what can you trust?” And, “You cannot equivocate. You either trust the self or you do not.” And one of my favorites, because it so sounds like Seth and makes me smile each time I read it: “You must begin to trust the self some time. I suggest you do it now.”

So, yes, it is the self that must come to be trusted, not in selected instances but always. When we create an event, uneasy or not, we must trust that there is purpose and meaning behind it. When we ask for understanding and clarity, we must trust that it will always be forthcoming. When we feel an impulse, we must trust that there is good intent driving it. When we need healing, psychic or physical, we must trust that we are fully capable of creating a path that fits our needs. When we seek new direction, we must trust probabilities to open that guide us. - So much to trust, and this is only a small portion of it.

But overall, we must see that it is our self that makes these intimacies of interaction happen because of who and what our self is. That is the bottom line. Who and what is the self, and what rightful power does it hold because of it? We must accept a new, broader definition of the self...and trust it.

And our friend takes the final word today, suggesting the great implications to our individually learning to trust our self and what it means to our reality: “Society would be restructured if the self were trusted.”

As usual, following are the gathered Seth quotes on today’s subject, and they only hint at everything Seth has to say about it. Also included are some lines that use the word “faith,” because Seth made a comment that the words faith and trust are interchangeable.

Hope to see you in May for the next to the last Seth Talk entry, and in some ways it’s an extension of this one because it’s on living a safe universe. And how the heck can we possibly do that without trust? More good Seth quotes and clarifications coming your way soon, folks!

Seth on  Trust

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
