Lynda Madden Dahl: One of the most amazing concepts Seth brings to us is the fact that Framework 1 (physical reality) does not and cannot stand alone. It is both WITHIN and continually EMERGES FROM Framework 2 (the source of physical reality), moment by moment, based on our own beliefs and other mental acts, and is materialized through our five senses.
One of our greatest accomplishments is to learn to CONSCIOUSLY weave the two frameworks into our individual realities through our knowledge—and trust of that knowledge.
Here’s some of what Seth says about the two frameworks and their basis in oneness. It is long, but every word is worth it, especially from a practical standpoint as you’ll see when we reach the sentence, “Once you begin consciously working with Framework 2…”
So, here we go:
“Some time ago, I said something to the effect that seeming miracles were simply caused by nature unimpeded.
“Nature’s source, in the terms in which we have been speaking, comes from Framework 2. There, all of nature’s true potentials lie ready to be actualized according to the circumstances and conditions, the needs and desires, of the natural creature in Framework 1. The true potentials of nature are hardly suspected in most areas.
“Since the nature of Framework 1 constantly flows into it from Framework 2, then Framework 2 is responsible for the shapes, forms, the behavior, the potentials of nature as you know it. When you are working with Framework 2, you are indeed working with nature in the most basic way. In childhood you do this automatically. You do not question the gifts of the gods, so to speak. Ruburt’s physical condition was the result of nature impeded. …
“Some people throughout their lives merge the two frameworks unconsciously in a childlike manner. Others begin early to concentrate in Framework 1, so that Framework 2 goes more and more out of focus.
“Because you are natural, however, your existence is couched in Framework 2. And to some extent, you are even saved at times from your own beliefs because additional insights or solutions are directly inserted into your mind in the dream state or in other moments of the day.
“Often such information will be given time and time again, in different ways, until its importance is finally impressed upon your mind. You may have a series of dreams, all in one way or another stating the message. … In a manner of speaking, now, such dreams can operate as, say, post-hypnotic suggestion, so that you begin to react in a new way, without perhaps knowing why. …
“Once you begin consciously working with Framework 2, help, support, solutions – all begin to come, for you line up your conscious faculties with your unconscious ones, in the most beneficial way. And your conscious goals fit in with your unconscious natural goals – the primary ones given you at birth. You are set right with yourself again.
“Again, this process automatically brings about powerful beneficial changes. Any misconceptions, contradictions, seeming dilemmas are resolved, for now you are not going against your own nature but with it. And from Framework 2 you draw out the greatest natural potentials that are uniquely yours. …
“Framework 2, again, in a way magnifies your intent. The work done there is out of all proportion to the effort expended once your intent is clear and the clear desire stated. Framework 2 is a powerhouse from which physical energy springs. It flows, that energy, to you automatically. Only when you say, ‘I do not want it in this area,’ do you cut down on that energy flow.”
