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.”

Basic Good Intent

“I am mentioning this only to stress the fact that self-delight and self-approval are natural characteristics – characteristics that actually make your entire physical world, and world of experience possible.
“… All creatures are basically of good intent; even when they commit the most dubious of acts, these are usually caused by misdirected good intent.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session February 7, 1984)

Ubiquitous self approval

“All creatures are also born, then, with a keen sense of self-approval.
“Each creature is born proud of itself, and loving itself.  That same self-approval is also experienced in varying ways not only by creatures as you think of them, but also by atoms and molecules, and by all orders of matter.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session February 7, 1984)

Self-Approval is necessary

This is a real challenge for the "Type-A" people among us.  As I understand it (I think Lazaris said this) Type-A behaviour results from experiencing conditional love as a child.  As a child, we're totally dependent upon our parents for survival ... so the easiest way for parents to control the terrible two's etc. is to withdraw love ... often through a glance.  Unfortunately, the long term implication is the feeling that we are unworthy or never good enough ... so life becomes an unending treadmill with little to celebrate!

There is also a negative-ego game which tells us to lower our expectations because we're unworthy of "big" success and the "fall" won't be as hard when we fail to achieve our dreams.

Both of these conditions need to be released for a true sense of well being:

“A feeling of self-approval is absolutely necessary for any true sense of well-being; it is not virtuous in any way to put yourself down, or to punish yourself, because you do not feel you have lived up to your best behaviour at any given time.”

Live each day fully and joyfully

“In a basic way, it is against nature’s purposes to contemplate a dire future, for all of nature operates on the premise that the future is assured.  Nature is everywhere filled with promise – not only the promise of mere survival, but the promise of beauty and fulfillment.  Once again, that keen sense of promise is innate within each portion of the body.  It triggers the genes and chromosomes into their proper activity, and it promotes feelings of optimism, exuberance, and strength.
“… live each day as fully and joyfully as possible.  Imagine the best possible results of any plans or projects. Above all, do not concentrate upon past unfavorable events, or imagine future ones.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session February 1, 1984)

The way toward health is simple

“The way toward health is simplicity itself. …
“All of nature demonstrates this almost miraculous seeming simplicity. Plants and animals and all of life’s aspects take it quite for granted that the sun will shine and the rains will fall in the way best conducive to all creatures.  Animals certainly do not worry about tomorrow’s weather conditions. It may be true that animals do not need to know tomorrow’s weather, since they do not plant seeds or collect the harvest.  It is perfectly fine to make plans for the future, yet each individual should live day by day, without worrying about the outcome of those plans.”

Biological optimism

“All elements of life are optimistic.
“… there is an inbred biological faith, that courage and vitality, that biological optimism.  It acts the same in people, triggering the necessary bodily responses.  Only when that optimism is severely tampered with do the physical mechanisms falter.  Even then, however, all creatures are sustained by that innate gift, that inner sense of security that not only propels creatures toward life, but safely conducts them past physical life and past death’s doorway.”

"Diseases" perform a service

When we really get it, we understand that what we think of as diseases are really processes which perform a service in response to the belief system that we hold.  What we know as physical experience is all an illusion representing (in simplified 3d linear time form) the implications of our beliefs, etc. and symbolic representations of the fulfilling approach/solution to the issues we’re exploring.  This happens at the individual level and every other group level even up to the level of humanity and beyond.  It’s really pretty cool!  We force ourselves to focus so tightly on single space-time moments of experience that we never see the big picture.  The upside is that we get to experience the depth of the moments … particularly when we love.

“You will discover that so-called diseases perform certain services.  They fulfill purposes for you that you may believe you can achieve in no other way.  The reasons for such illnesses are not deeply buried in the subconscious, as you may think.  They are much closer to the conscious mind, and usually consist of a series of seemingly innocuous decisions that you have made through the years. Other illnesses, of course, may be caused by sudden decisions that are a response to a particular event in your life.
“People have been taught that their bodies are a kind of battleground, and that they must be in a constant state of readiness lest they be attacked or invaded by alien germs or viruses or diseases that can strike without warning.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session January 28, 1984)
