Dear Seth readers,
As some of you know, the spoonbending session was a complete success. Six attendees managed to bend their forks, two of them spectacularly, tines and all. First we watched a video of Maureen Caudill (who wrote Suddenly Psychic) leading a spoonbending session at ARE. We did the energy exercises she suggested, then picked up our forks and tried it ourselves. It took about 15 minutes before Beth said, "I did it!" I ran over to her, and she said "Feel how hot it is." I felt it, and the fork was still very hot right where it bent. She went on to bend the tines in all different directions. Jeffrey and Lois did the same, and then Beth did a second fork. Four other people also bent the handles of theirs. The metal just seems to soften in one spot, you push or twist it in one direction or another, and it just goes! Now I have a plateful of bent forks here on my coffee table. But my own fork didn't budge.
We also welcomed Mary G. for the first time, who brought with her some memorabilia from the Austin Seth Center and some of the early Seth conferences. It was delightful to hear her talk about Maude Cardwell and those days in the 80's and 90's.
Don't forget to check out the files I have posted on our Meetup website (click "more" then "files.")
See you next month!
Consciousness is the direction in which the self looks at any given time. . . The dreaming self is as important as the so-called conscious self. The whole self merely changes direction and viewpoint and focuses its energies along a particular line. It turns beams of attention off and on. It has many facets and many volumes and many dimensions. It acts out roles, but the whole self is entire, and every individual innately knows and is intimately familiar with the intents and purposes of the whole self. And in dreams and in intuitions and unspoken thoughts, the individual comes to terms with the whole self, of which it is merely one portion, and not necessarily the dominant portion.
