Negative suggestions are unnatural

Here’s another Seth quote that shows the universe (and “you-niverse”) is wired for fulfillment … health, exuberance and love.


Let’s live that feeling today!!!

“People are not simply swung willy-nilly by one negative suggestion or another, however.  Each person has an entire body of beliefs and suggestions – and these are quite literally reflected in the physical body itself.
“All practical healing deals with the insertion of positive suggestions and the removal of negative ones.  As we mentioned earlier, each smallest atom or cell contains its own impetus toward growth and value fulfillment.  In other words, they are literally implanted with positive suggestions, biologically nurtured, so to that extent it is true to say that in a certain fashion negative suggestions are unnatural, leading away from life’s primary goals.  Negative suggestions could be compared to static sounding on an otherwise clear program.”

Inherited Diseases

“There are diseases that people believe are inherited, carried from one generation to another by a faulty genetic communication.  Obviously, many people with, for example, a genetic heritage of arthritis do not come down with the disease themselves, while others indeed are so afflicted.  The difference is one of belief.
“The people have accepted the suggestion uncritically that they will inherit such a malady do then seem to inherit it: they experience the symptoms.  Actually, the belief itself may have changed a healthy genetic message into an unhealthy one.  Ideally, a change of belief would remedy the situation.”

Aging

“Many people believe fervently that with approaching age they will meet a steady, disastrous deterioration in which the senses and the mind will be dull, and the body, stricken with disease, will lose all of its vigor and agility.  Many young people believe such nonsense, and therefore they set themselves up to meet the very conditions they so fear.
“The mind grows wiser with age when it is allowed to do so.  There is even an acceleration of thought and inspiration, much like that experienced in the adolescent years, that suddenly brings a new understanding to the aged individual, and provides an impetus that should help the person to achieve greater comprehension – a comprehension that should quell all fears of death.”

Childhood Programming

Bruce Lipton talks about “nature” and “nurture”.  Nature is the state of our DNA at birth and the basic reflexes, instincts and "operating system" of the brain.  Nurture, is the “programming" of the brain … which starts even before birth.  

It is important to realize that both the DNA and “wiring” of the brain change throughout our life.  For example, we can reprogram the brain using Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) … NLP is how humans get programmed to buy things or smoke cigarettes etc. by watching repetitive, emotionally charged commercials.  NLP is also being exploited politically … e.g. Trumps Twitter use, our emotionally charged, repetitive political campaigns, the daily news, etc..

The trick is to be aware of what’s happening and what our thoughts and feelings are in each moment and to make choices.  It is also important to hold an “Idea” to navigate by, which guides our moment-to-moment choices so that we head in the intended “direction” in this lifetime.

“Many such suggestions are “old-hat idioms”.  They belong to the past, and again they escape the questioning and examination that are usually given to new ideas.

“These suggestions may be remarkably long-standing, therefore, and consist of beliefs received in childhood.  Accepted now in the present, noncritically, they may still affect health and well-being.  Such suggestions can be beneficial and supportive, or negative and detrimental. Here are some examples that should be quite familiar to many people.”

“There are other kinds of suggestions that involve identification.  A child may be told: “You are just like your mother, she was always nervous and moody”.  Or: “You are fat because your father was fat”.

“These are all statements leading toward a certain hypothesis.  Again, the problem is that often the hypotheses remain unquestioned.  You end up with structured beliefs unexamined, that are then automatically acted upon.”


(The Way Toward Health,Session April 8, 1984)

The power of suggestions

“Suggestions are usually statements directed toward a particular action or hypothesis.  To a large extent, suggestions are tied into conscious thought processes, following the dictates of reason.  For example: “If thus and thus be so, then thus and thus must follow”.  There is no magic connected with suggestions – but repeated often enough, and believed in fervently, such suggestions do indeed take on a deeply habitual nature.  They are no longer examined, but taken for literal truth.
“They are then handed over to the more automatic levels of personality, where they trigger the specific actions that are so strongly implied.”

Limiting beliefs degrade health

“The sooner you can rid yourself of rigid beliefs about the survival of the fittest, the better you will be.  All philosophies that stress the idea of the body’s impurity or degradation should also be seen as detrimental to bodily and spiritual integrity.  Such beliefs clutter up your conscious mind with negative suggestions that can only frighten the exterior ego and impede the great strength and vitality that is your heritage from lending you the fullest possible strength and support.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session April 4, 1984)

Health

“The subject of health cannot be considered in an isolated fashion, but must be seen in that greater context that gives health itself a value and a meaning. As mentioned earlier, each person will also try to fulfill their own unique abilities, and to “fill out” the experience of life as fully as possible.
“If an individual is hampered in that attempt strongly and persistently enough, then the dissatisfaction and frustration will be translated into a lack of physical exuberance and vitality.  There is always an unending reservoir of energy at the command of each person, however, regardless of circumstances …”

Simultaneous existences, not reincarnation

Simultaneous existences have been mentioned many times. Like the cells in your body … they all exist at once, they communicate with each other and with every cell on earth.  Again … something easy to say but really hard to live!

“There are, in fact, so many distorted ideas connected with the concept of reincarnation in general, that I think it far better to simply concentrate upon the idea of multiple existences.  Because of the true nature of time, and the interrelationships of consciousness, a future life affects a past one, for in actuality all of these existences happen simultaneously.  All systems are open-ended, particularly psychological ones.  In greater terms, you are working “at all levels” and at all of your own existences at once, even though it is useful sometimes to think of reincarnation as a series of lives, one after the other.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session April 2, 1984)

Reincarnational influences

“Reincarnational influences are not nearly as rigid as many believers in the concept think.  That is, reincarnational influences usually leave many options open to an individual in any case.  It is quite simplistic, for example, to say, as some people do, that any given particular event from a past life leads inevitably to a particularly matching effect in a present one.  There are too many other elements that also apply to the human personality.  No one is “fated” to have bad health.  No one is punished in one life for “evil” activities in a previous one.
“… New learning would always be involved, and thus new options would always be open.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session April 2, 1984)

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Reincarnation and health

“The fact is that each individual lives many lives, and that the inner self is quite aware of its own spiritual and physical dexterity.  The body consciousness alone understands that its physical existence in any one life is dependent upon its physical death – and that that death will assure it of still another existence.  The “drive for survival” is, therefore, a drive that leads to death and beyondit, for all of consciousness understands that it survives through many forms and conditions.
“Reincarnation, therefore, also is part of the larger framework in which any individual’s health and well-being must be considered.  The reincarnational influences are most apparent in what would be considered bodily defects dating from birth, and these will be discussed later on in this book.”

Communication at all levels

You’ll recall an earlier Seth quote that said that even our cells are in constant communication with ALL the cells on the earth, etc.  

It is important to be aware of what attitudes, beliefs, thoughts, and feelings we give energy to; what choices and decisions we make; and what desires, imaginings and expectations we hold.  These are communicated to every aspect of reality at all levels … right down to subatomic particles and all the way up to the Cosmos … that’s how we manifest our moments of experience out of all the endless possibilities and probabilities … and it’s also how we create new possibilities and probabilities.  Our moments of physical experience manifest with patterns of behaviour conforming with all that.  

We have magical powers … but it takes a lot of discipline to manage the wild ride of our ego feedback system (3D thoughts and emotions) while living in the cultural imprinting that surrounds us.

“In one way or another each segment of consciousness is aware of each other segment, through an instantaneous communication that exists on many levels. It is important that your ideas circulate freely, and that the ideas of the peoples of the world circulate freely, just as it is important that your individual body has good circulation. Your ideas about your own health are even more important than those steps you take to promote it.
“Your ideas about foreign countries, allies and enemies, also have a vital role to play in how you handle your own bodily defenses.  People who are afraid that their nation will be invaded by an enemy will often also consider viruses or diseases to be enemies, ever about to threaten their personal survival.  Such attitudes will, of course, be detrimental to feelings of well-being, health, and exuberance.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 27, 1984)

Life is an exuberant quest for fulfillment

“Earlier we spoke about the incredible impulse on the part of all of nature toward exuberance and well-being.  It is as if nature always tries to exceed itself, and certainly to increase the quality of its existence.  The individual person is also involved in an ever-continuing process to increase the quality of life as it exists at all levels of personal experience.  Reality is so constructed that each individual seeking such fulfillment does so not at the expense of others, but in such a way that the quality of life is increased for all.
“Each person impulsively tries to grow into his or her sensed potentials – even when they are not immediately apparent.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 27, 1984)

Healing the heart

“The heart is often described as a pump.  With the latest developments in medical technology, there are all kinds of heart operations that can be performed, even the use of heart transplants. In many cases, even when hearts are repaired through medical technology, the same trouble reoccurs at a later date, or the patient recovers only to fall prey to a different, nearly fatal or fatal, disease.  This is not always the case, by any means, but when such a person does recover fully, and maintains good health, it is because beliefs, attitudes, and feelings have changed for the better, and because the person “has a heart” again, in other words, because the patient himself has regained the will to live.
“Many people who have heart trouble feel that they have “lost the heart” for life. They may feel broken-hearted for any of many reasons.  They may feel heartless, or imagine themselves to be so cold-hearted that they punish themselves literally by trying to lose their heart.
“With many people having such difficulties, the addition of love in the environment may work far better than any heart operation.  A new pet given to a bereaved individual has saved more people from needing heart operations than any physician.  In other words, “a love transplant” in the environment may work far better overall than a heart-transplant operation, or a bypass, or whatever; in such ways, the heart is allowed to heal itself.”

Our relationships shape our health

Today's Seth reminds of a book by Dr. Gabor Mate: "When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress", a book about the devastating effect on women's health when in toxic, co-dependent relationships.

“Old-time family doctors understood the patient’s sensitivity to family members and to the environment, of course, and they often felt a lively sympathy and understanding that the practitioners of modern medicine often seem to have forgotten.
“I am speaking of a deeper relationship to the environment, however, and of the environment’s symbolic as well as practical aspects in relationship to health and illness.  Your ideas about your own body, your mind, the universe and your part in it, and your relationship to family, friends, and environment are all connected to your state of health, to your sense of well-being, or your feelings of dis-ease.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 23, 1984)

Life is not a struggle for survival

“… it seems often that physical life consists of a frantic struggle for survival at every level of consciousness.  Such ideas certainty do not foster feelings of security, health, or well-being, and they distort the nature of your physical environment.
“That environment is not something separate from yourself, for you to control. Instead, you and the environment support, strengthen, and fortify each other in ways that often escape you.  All portions of the environment contain their own kinds of consciousness.  They are aware of their own parts in the body of the world, so to speak, and they are aware not only of their own conditions, but of their relationships to all other portions of the world.  They add to the world’s health, in other words, and your own vitality – and that of your environment – are everywhere interrelated.”

Physical life is NOT inferior

“Those who look upon physical life as inferior to some other more perfect spiritual existence do a great injustice to physical existence in general. Physical life is everywhere filled with the universal energy that is its source, so it can hardly be inferior to its own composition.
“Again, corporeal reality is a brilliant segment of existence.  It cannot be inferior to existence.  It is because you so often view your world through a system of highly limited beliefs that you so often misread the implications of temporal life.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 21, 1984)

Each moment is brand new

“Each new rose in the springtime is in truth a new rose, composed of completely new and unique energy, utterly itself, innocent, alive in the world.
“In the deepest of terms, while each body has a history, each moment in the body’s existence is also new, freshly emerging into the world, innocent and unique.  While there is indeed pain in the world, it is the miraculous principle of pleasure that propels life itself.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 20, 1984)

Energy is love

“The universe actively loves itself and all of its parts.  The world loves itself and all of its parts.  It is not true that energy is neutral or indifferent. Energy is active, positive, propelled by what can almost be called an instantaneous pleasure with itself and its characteristics.
“Despite all concepts to the contrary, energy is indeed at its basis, love. It is also composed of highly charged consciousness that operates almost in a leapfrog fashion, with great bursts of exuberance and vitality.  The great – the greatest creative force – that force that is the origin for all physical life – did not suddenly appear once in some distant past, sparking the birth of your reality, endowing it with an energy that could only then run down, or dissipate.  Instead, ever-new virgin energy, so to speak, is created constantly, and appears at every conceivable point within your universal system.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 20, 1984)

Remember our universal source

“The inner ego, however, always identifies with its source-identity as a beloved, individualized portion of the universe.  It is aware of the universal love that is its heritage.
“It is also aware of the infinite power and strength that composes the very fabric of its being.  Through being made aware of these facts, the exterior ego can begin to feel a quicker sense of support and nourishment.  The knowledge can let it relax, let go, so that it feels its life couched and safe, and knows itself to be indeed a beloved child of the universe, both ancient and young at once, with an identity far beyond the annals of time.
“It is of great value, then, that each person remember this universal affiliation.  Such a reminder can often allow the inner self to send needed messages of strength and love through the various levels, appearing as inspiration, dreams, or simply pure bursts of feeling. The inner ego draws instant and continuous support from the universal consciousness, and the more the exterior ego keeps that fact in mind, the greater its own sense of stability, safety, and self-esteem.”

We aren't failures

“No animal considers itself a failure, obviously.  People, however, often identify with their seeming mistakes, forgetting their abilities in other directions, so that it seems that they are misfits in the universe, or in the world.  The conscious mind can indeed have such thoughts because it so often tries to solve all problems on its own, until it begins to feel frightened, overburdened, and a failure in its own eyes.”

A beautiful Seth thought for the day

“Each person is a vital, conscious portion of the universe.  Each person’s existence sends its own ripples throughout time.  The universe is conscious at every conceivable point of itself.  Each being is an individualized segment of the universe; then, in human terms, each person is a beloved individual, formed with infinite care and love, uniquely gifted with a life like no other.”

Communicating with the Inner Ego

“Most people do not realize that they can indeed have access to this inner awareness.  This inner ego or inner self should not be thought of as superior to your ordinary mind. It should not be thought of, really, as something separate from your ordinary mind.  Your ego and your ordinary consciousness bring into focus all of your physical experiences, and make possible the brilliant preciseness of physical experience.
“It is true that physical life represents only one condition of being. You have other kinds of existence, then. The conscious mind is one brilliant segment of your larger consciousness, but it is composed of the same universal energy and vitality that composes all consciousness.  There are ways of communicating with the inner ego or inner self, however, and we will discuss some of these very shortly.  It is important, again, to remember that this inner ego or inner self uses a process that is far swifter than reasoning.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 18, 1984)

Inner Ego

Seth presents a relatively simple way to view our individuated consciousness ... the notion of an outward looking ego (one that is part of the manifested physical moment of experience, that observes these moments of experience and that makes choices, etc.) and an Inner Ego that generates our physical presence and these moments of physical experience (something like the ACIM dreamer of the dream).

Lazaris has drawn an analogy with our computer technology.  In this analogy, our conscious (outer) ego is the input/output (I/O) system (screen, keyboard, etc.).  The Inner Ego is the program running on the computer which takes commands from the I/O system and communicates with All That Is through the cosmic internet.

“You usually think of your conscious mind as your ego.  It is directed toward action in physical life. Many schools of thought seem to have the curious ideas that the ego is inferior to other portions of the self, or “selfish”, and imagine it to be definitely of a lower quality than the inner self, or the soul.
“In the first place, it is really impossible to separate portions of the self, and we make such distinctions only in an effort to explain the many facets of the personality.  It is generally understood, then, that you do have an ego, directed toward exterior activity, and in those terms you also have an inner ego.  It is also conscious, and is the director of all automatic interior activity.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 18, 1984)

Continuum of consciousness

Today’s Seth points out that everything is conscious … maybe not conscious like our waking consciousness … but from molecules on up to the body and Gaia, Milky Way, the universe, everything is conscious action manifesting to us as matter in time and space.  

This makes sense intellectually, but it’s a challenge to live with that awareness.  

Buddhist practices work to bridge the gap between waking consciousness and body mind.  Shamans bridge the same gap with the elements, species and the planet.  Kryon has emphasized that the key to contributing to the current awakening of humanity and the planet is to feel compassion … feel that connection with the planet, other humans and our ancestors (spiritual ancestors not biological).

“It is perhaps easier to imagine a continuum of consciousness, for you have a body consciousness also, and that body consciousness is itself made up of the individual consciousness of each molecule that forms all parts of the body itself.
“It is sometimes fashionable to say that men and women have conscious minds, subconscious minds, and unconscious minds – but there is no such thing as an unconscious mind.  The body consciousness is highly conscious.  You are simply not usually conscious of it. Reasoning takes time.  It deals with problem-solving – it forms an hypothesis, and then seeks to prove it by trial and error.
“If you had to use that kind of process before you could move a muscle, you would get nowhere at all, of course.  The other portions of your consciousness, then, deal with a kind of automatic thinking, and operate with a kind of knowledge that takes no time in your terms.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session March 16, 1984)

Subconscious Mind

“You know that you have a conscious mind, of course.  You also possess what is often called the subconscious, and this merely consists of feelings, thoughts or experiences that are connected to your conscious mind, but would be considered excess baggage if you had to be aware of them all of the time.  Otherwise they would vie for your attention, and interfere with the present decisions that are so important.
“If you tried to hold all of those subconscious memories uppermost in your mind all of the time, then you would literally be unable to think or act in the present moment at all.  You do more or less have a certain access to your own subconscious mind, however.”

How the body views "dis-ease"

“If people become ill, it is quite fashionable to say that the immunity system has temporarily failed – yet the body itself knows that certain “dis-eases” are healthy reactions.  The body does not regard diseases as diseases, in usually understood terms.  It regards all activity as experience, as a momentary condition of life, as a balancing situation.  But it possesses a sense of wholeness and of overall integrity, for it knows that it continues to exist, though under different conditions, and it realizes that this change is as natural and necessary as the change of seasons if each individual is to continue to exist, while the earth itself possesses the nutriments necessary to the survival of physical life.”

Cellular Communication

This is absolutely amazing ... and something that science has no idea exists!!!  Yet it's so obvious when you think that the origin of our manifested moments of 3D serial time experience exists outside of time and space in a "sea" of conscious energy existing in a "spacious present".

“There is a cellular communication between or among all of earth’s living cells, as if the earth itself were one large physical body.”

The Art of Meditation

The art of meditation

Philosopher Alan Watts gets to the core meditation.


"Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment. And therefore, if you meditate for an ulterior motive — that is to say, to improve your mind, to improve your character, to be more efficient in life — you've got your eye on the future and you are not meditating!"
***
"The art of meditation is a way of getting into touch with reality. And the reason for it is that most civilized people are out of touch with reality because they confuse the world as it is with the world as they think about it, and talk about it, and describe it. For — on the one hand — there is the real world and — on the other — a whole system of symbols about that world which we have in our minds."
***
"Meditation is the way in which we come to feel our basic inseparability from the whole universe, and what that requires is that we shut up. That is to say, that we become interiorally silent and cease from the interminable chatter that goes on inside our skulls. Because you see, most of us think compulsively all the time."

Death

Today’s Seth is an interesting take on death.  If you think about it, death (at the appropriate moment) is indeed a gift … it allows us to fully reconnect with our source selves before diving in somewhere else and it creates the space and time for others to jump in and enjoy the physical life on Gaia.  

An eternity trapped in one physical incarnation would be anybody’s definition of hell … particularly being stuck after the “lessons have been learned” and when we’re ready to expand our consciousness and cruise the Cosmos!

“It should be noted before we begin that death itself is the delivery – a deliverer – of your species and all others.  It is not negative in itself, but instead is the beginning of a different kind of positive existence.  It prunes the planet, so to speak, so that there is a room and time for all, energy and food for all.  Because of death, life is possible, so these two seemingly opposite qualities are simply different versions of the same phenomena.”

Life is magical

I don't know about you, but I sure tend to over-think things!  Life really is magical ... if we let it happen!

“The same hidden ability that promotes your body’s health and vitality also fulfills and preserves the world in general.  All of this is done playfully, and yet emerges with the greatest display of order and design.
“When you become too serious you overwork your intellect and tire your body, for then it seems that your entire life depends upon the reasoning of your intellect alone.  Instead, of course, your intellectual abilities are supported and promoted by that inner mixture of spontaneity and order that so magically combine to form both your reality and the reality of the world.”

Different kinds of knowledge

Here’s Seth’s deep thought for the day.

When you read this, it becomes readily apparent how little we “know” or understand with our fixation on materialism and technology.  The avatars of old “knew” more than us … they could do things we would consider magic, defying the laws of physics.

Love is right up there in terms of something magical and equally unknowable intellectually!

“You think, for example, without consciously knowing how you do so, and you speak long sentences without consciously being aware at the beginning of the sentence what the conclusion will be.
“This does not mean that you must forever remain in ignorance, but it does mean that there are different kinds of knowledge, and that all of your information does not come by reasoning alone.  You grew from a fetus into an adult, for instance, so obviously, some part of you does know how to perform such an amazing activity as the growth and care of the physical body.  The reasoning mind alone, however, cannot by itself grow even the smallest cell, or activate the life of even one molecule, yet the growth and maintenance of the body is constant.”

Events and levels of consciousness they’re experienced in "The next day, as I reread the earlier material on strands of consciousness, some new ideas came to me, it’s not so much the events of our lives that compose our mental experience, as the level of consciousness we’re in when we experience the events. I remember how everything before my eyes seemed to change in my altered state in front of the supermarket. The physical data was the same as before. The contents of the world didn’t gain or lose an inch, in physical terms. Yet qualitatively everything changed to such a degree that the world was entirely different and richer. The buildings and people were more fully dimensioned. Yet even then I knew that others about me, in the usual state of consciousness, were seeing the same world I had seen before the switch. Nothing was added to their world, and I didn’t know how much I would retain when I returned to “normal” either. "What I had retained was memory and fleeting flashes in which the experience splashed out momentarily into a day and then vanished – and the library – because in some way that I still didn’t understand, the library was born out of that altered vision. But I was becoming certain that states of consciousness help mold events and are invisibly a part of them. "Difficulties at one level of awareness disappear at other levels. Certain “negative” experiences simply dissolve, and contradictions disappear. We just haven’t been taught to vary our own experience-levels, to travel to one state of consciousness to find the answers to problems existing at another level. "From my own experiences, I also knew that these various states possess different characteristics and creative specializations. Using altered states of consciousness, we can experience events from different sides – and if we knew how to utilize them conditions, we could conceivably circumnavigate events, seeing them from the inside and outside space and time, glimpsing their greater reality. It’s quite possible that difficulties in our lives represent specific areas in which our vision is truly limited to a too-confined focus." (Psychic Politics)

Magic

I think it was Lazaris that defined magic as anything that happens beyond your understanding or conscious ability.  Lazaris wen on to point out that "higher magic" is what happens when we commune (communicate and have union with) our Higher Self; and, the magic of synchronicities happen when "Souls are at play".

“My definition of magic is this: Magic is nature unimpeded, or magic is life unimpeded.  It is true that your thoughts and emotions and beliefs form the reality that you experience – but it is also true that this creative construction is, in a manner of speaking, magically formed.  That is, the construction of your body and construction of a world are produced with the greatest combination of order and spontaneity – an order and spontaneity that seems hidden rather than apparent.”

Thoughts have power

The duality that we know as physical reality has been described as a "Third-Dimensional Reality".  Actually, physical reality is a linear-time-sequenced, 3D material representation of a Third-Dimensional Reality.  The term "Third-Dimensional Reality" refers to the concept that the reality is the result of the synergy between thought and feeling ... i.e. the synergy between consciousness (thought) and energy (feeling).

In terms of the Qabalah:

  • The World of Causation arises as conscious, structured energy out of the World of Emanation (the Source).  The World of Causation is the World of soul, spirit, higher self, archetypal energies ... the World of "Formless Forms" as Lazaris has described it.  
  • The World of Formation is the realm in which these "Formless Forms" interact ... i.e. the World of Formation is the interaction/movement of primal, conscious-structured energy in the Mind of All That Is (this movement is the "wind" of Mind that Seth is talking about here).  
  • The World of Action, in our case, is the 3D material representation that we present to ourselves as physical reality.  It is a representation of our very narrowly focused awareness of an aspect of the unknowable, infinite Mind of All That Is.  This narrowly focused awareness has been likened to lasers illuminating a hologram.  What is real, is the hologram.  The lasers can only provide incomplete representations of the hologram ... in our case, the hologram is infinite (in dimensionality, extent, etc.) so our manifested experience is even more narrowly focused and more limited.


“You cannot see the wind directly – you see only its effects.  The same applies to your thoughts.  They possess power as the wind does, but you only see the effects of their actions.”

Our health and weather interact

I guess today’s Seth draws out the oneness of all that we perceive.  If we recall that we manifest a 3D snapshot of All That Is, moment by moment, it would then seem obvious that everything we perceive in that snapshot is interrelated and symbolic of the great unknowable All That Is.

“Your health and the daily weather interact with each other.  This happens on a personal and mass basis.  I admit that some of this material quite contradicts your usual ideas, but the health of your body is intimately related not only to the state of world health, but to the physical climate as well.
“You do not “catch” a drought.  You do not catch a cold, either.  In a fashion a drought is partially caused by the emotional states of the people who experience it – yet a drought is not a disease.  It is part of a process.  It is a necessary portion of the larger process of the world’s physical stability. As unfortunate as a drought might seem, it is in its way responsible for the balanced portion of moisture of the entire planet’s surface.  In the same way, diseases in their fashion are also often parts of larger processes whose greater purpose is the body’s overall balance and strength.”

We turn empty space into our living body

I was struck by Deepak Chopra's first book "Quantum Healing" because he realized that 'mind' interacts with material cells of the body through the quantum potential.  He also realized that we continuously create the body (including it's ailments) ... much like Seth describes here.

“Do not think of the mind as a purely mental entity, and of the body as a purely physical one.  Instead, think of both mind and body as continuing, interweaving processes that are mental and physical at once.  Your thoughts actually are quite as physical as your body is, and your body is quite as nonphysical as it seems to you your thoughts are.  You are actually a vital force, existing as a part of your environment, and yet apart from your environment at the same time.
“It is obvious that you impress a room with your characteristics as you furnish it, but you also mark what seems to be empty space in the same fashion – that is, you turn empty space into the living matter of your body without ever realizing that you do so.”

The body is a living book

This Seth quote is directed to Jane (referred to as 'him') and is written in terms that Jane would understand, being the highly creative author that she was.  

It goes for all of us too.  

Note the line "the body is a living book, being produced in each moment".  We manifest our 3D view of this life on earth (body and all) in each moment ... from 'nothing' but conscious energy.

Unfortunately, we hold so strong a belief in linear time and continuity that we stifle the innate magic within us.  According to Lazaris, we use that time-based limitation so we can become conscious of how we create/manifest our reality and to see the symbolic implications of our beliefs.  This is necessary for us to become the "conscious creators" that we need to become before we can cruise the Cosmos in less constrained realities.

“When an idea for a book or a poem comes to him, he “tunes into it” immediately. It never occurs to him to wonder how many vowels or syllables, words and sentences, paragraphs or pages might be involved.  He takes it for granted that his intent will be executed.
“That is the natural, creative way to function, and it has provided him with many excellent books and poetry.  When he is writing, he does not think in terms of impediments.  What impediments there may be, he brushes aside.
“Now his health can be handled in the same fashion, without wondering how many nerves or muscles or stages must be activated, without worrying about how much time will be involved.  In a fashion, the body is a living book, being produced in every moment.
“Again, it may seem too simple – but by applying the same methods to the body, the body’s health will be written with health and vitality, using blood and corpuscles, joints and ligaments and so forth instead of syllables, consonants, words and sentences.”

Seth Paradigm Shift

Seth (and Cayce, Lazaris, Elias, Metatron, etc.) are all engaged in starting a paradigm shift to usher in the “next era”.  Obviously we needed an update after the “Jesus Intervention”!

“With creative people, however, there are always intrusions, hints or clues from ways of thinking that certainly appear foreign, and creative people use those hints and clues to construct an art, a musical composition or whatever.  They sense a surge of power beneath.
“You and Ruburt have had the feelings many times – but what we are trying to do is change over completely from one mode of operation to another, and to construct, say, new inner blocks of meaning that will give rise to the next era.
“What you are involved in then is really, of course, a completely new educational procedure, so that you are at least able to distinguish one style of thought from another, and therefore be freer to make choices.”

Styles of thinking

Today’s Seth almost sounds like programming or imprinting.  Bruce Lipton draws a distinction between “nature” (our DNA) and “nurture” (our neuronal wiring).  The imprinting known as “nurture” happens continuously throughout our life.  For example, repetitive thoughts/actions with emotional charge wire the brain (called near-linguisitc programming (NLP)) … a favourite process used by advertising agencies.  As Seth points out, we are normally not aware of the way we think. Zen Buddhist practice is one way to become aware of thoughts arising … but even in that case, there is imprinting of a belief system and style of thinking.  Thus it is virtually impossible to “know” how an atom, molecule, cell, other life form “thinks” … hence we simply ignore that possibility and party on in a materialist paradigm!

“There are styles of thinking, just as there are various styles of dress.
“The official line of consciousness is a certain mental stance, a kind of convention.  When you were a child you thought in a freer fashion, but little by little you were educated to use words in a certain way.  You discovered that your needs were met more quickly, and you received approval more often, when you thought and spoke in that particular manner.  Finally, it seemed to be the only natural mode of operation.  Your entire civilization is built around that kind of inner framework.  The way of thinking becomes so automatic as to be mentally invisible.”
