Seth book: Dreams, Evolution and Value Fulfillment, vol 1, chapter 4 pg 222 9:04 (chap 4, 4th para from the end):
"Again, the environment as you think of it is composed of living consciousness. ... Part of consciousness, then, transformed itself into what you think of as nature--
the vast sweep of the continents, the oceans ... the body of the land. ... in a matter of speaking, bears, wolves, cows ... represent the earth turning itself into creatures that live upon its own surface. ... in a matter of speaking ... He (man) is earth coming alive to view itself through conscious eyes--
but that consciousness is graced to be because it is so intimately a part of earth's framework."
