How I wish you could have been there with me! What a great experience it was. Take how we all feel when we get together with each other and multiply it by at least 100. These were people with so much to share. There were families who had been living the Sethian principles for years. Profound ancient connections drew us together as seekers, causing us all to interrupt our lives, share experiences and learn from each other.
The theme this year was Listening, with presentations called "Energy Transformation and Consciousness Expansion" and "Your Emotional Guidance System and Deliberate Creation". A big topic was listening to communications from the Source, through intuition, dreams, impulses, emotions, imagination and thoughts. Seth says "Your source holds the highest version of you as your guidance system." Listen to your inner senses to find your way to this highest version of yourself. "Your impulses are our closest communication with your inner self, because in the waking state they are the spontaneous urgings toward action, rising from that deep inner knowledge of yourself that you have in dreams." One speaker said "We must use meditation or dream study or both to become highly evolved." Another: "Any world view has its contradictions. They can be spurs to growth, or impediments. It's your choice."
I met amazing, wonderful people from all over the country. I hope some of you will go to the conference next year.
Did you read Jane Roberts' Seth Speaks or The Nature of Personal Reality and love it? I did too. I loved the people in our Seth readers' group in Portland, and when I moved away I missed them so much that I decided to form a new one here in Lakeway near Austin. I know there were many people associated with Dr. Maude Cardwell's Austin Seth Center at one time, and I would like to find you!
The Seth Material adds a fascinating dimension to understanding our physical and non-physical reality. Seth says “Consciousness creates form. It is not the other way around. It is only because you are so busily concerned with daily matters that you do not realize that there is a portion of you who knows that its own powers are far superior to those shown by the ordinary self.” - Seth Speaks (Session 511, January 21, 1970)
The two Seth Readers meetups each month are for those who have already read some Seth books. If you haven't read any of Seth and Jane Roberts' books yet, please read a couple of them before attending. Seth is not easy to explain, and reading the books is the best way to get acquainted with the basics of his ideas.
If you haven't yet read at least a couple of the Jane Roberts Seth books, then you are invited to the monthly group called "Intro to Seth." There we are working on Seth's first (and some say most important) book, "Seth Speaks."
Previous Seth readers are invited to the meetup on the second Thursday. There is no charge. Please bring your copy of The Nature of Personal Reality, if you have one. Answer the questions here, and I'll invite you to the meeting location.
I have posted some files full of excellent Seth quotes on various topics and also summaries of all of Jane's books. To see them click on the "More" tab at the top of this page, then click on "Files".
