Seth gives an explanation and pep talk for the changes now underway.
“You have lived in a world in which you believed you must struggle to survive – and so you have struggled.
You have believed that the natural contours of nature were somehow antagonistic to your own existence, so that left in the hands of nature alone you would lose your way. You have believed that in the very framework of your psychology. In your experiences, therefore, all of these things have largely proven true.
Nothing taught that you were creatures. I have been trying to lead you into a new threshold of perception, where the old myths of evolution can be seen as outmoded, ancient, or forsaken castles amid a forest of beliefs – a forest that is indeed itself a magically formed one. The forest is the world of your imagination, surely, the imagination of your minds, and yet given force and power by the innate creativity that rises up from an inner world that represents much more truly the origins of man and beast. That world has been largely hidden by the camouflages shed by science and religion alike, but in your times the landscape began to appear so dark and threatening, so forbidden and alien to your own desires, that its end seemed all the more inevitable and swift.
I hope I have given you in this book a far more gallant and true picture, that represents the origin of your life, structure and being and thought. The inner world of reality, the world of dreams, presents a model of existence in which new energy, vitality, and being is everywhere apparent, ready to come forward to form new transformations, new combinations of energy and desire.
That inner psychological universe is a psychic gestalt, propelled, formed, sustained, or driven by value fulfillment, love and desire, by the loving values THAT HAVE NO LIMIT. The universe does not give up on itself or on any of its creatures. It is ruled by a different set of principles, a different set of values, and by inner cooperative exuberance.
You may need some time before the old beliefs become less prominent and finally fall into their proper decay – a decay, incidentally, that does indeed have its own kind of majesty, energy, and beauty.
But the inner natural leanings of all of consciousness within the realms of your being NOW YEARN FOR CONSTRUCTIVE CHANGE, clearer vision, to experience again their inherent sense of corporal spirituality, physical and psychic grace. They want to sense again the effortless motion that is their natural birthright.
I hope that this book to some extent or another puts each of you in touch with your own inner psychological motion, your creative breath, so that you are invigorated and sense within your own minds and spirit a new promise, a new intent, and the exhilaration of earthly and spiritual strength. You dwell in a state of natural grace that is quite alive and vital whether or not science decrees that consciousness possesses its own intent. Nature is supernatural all the while, of course.
Return to your own discussions. They serve you well, because they help clear communication at your end.
The sessions on magical approach do indeed represent the most “natural truths” about the nature and structure of your world, to the extent that you understand them and put them into practice.”
