Seth says, “You can change your personal world. You DO change it without knowing it. You have only to use your ability consciously.” Can he tell us often enough that it is the CONSCIOUS mind which directs our creations? Here’s one masterful reminder from him:
“Man has been endowed, and has endowed himself, with a conscious mind to direct the nature, shape and form of his creations. All deep aspirations and unconscious motivations, all unspoken drives, rise up for the approval or disapproval of the conscious mind, and await its direction.
“Only when it abdicates its functions does it allow itself to become swayed by ‘negative’ experience. Only when it refuses responsibility does it finally find itself at the seeming mercy of events over which it APPEARS to have no control.
“Books on positive thinking alone, while sometimes beneficial, usually do not take into consideration the habitual nature of negative feelings, aggressions, or repressions. Often these are merely swept under the rug.
“The authors instead tell you to be positive, compassionate, strong, optimistic, filled with joy and enthusiasm, without telling you what to do to get out of the predicament you may be in, and without understanding the vicious circle that may seem to entrap you.
“Such books, again, while sometimes of value, do not explain how thoughts and emotions cause reality. They do not take into consideration the multidimensional aspects of the self or the fact that ultimately each personality, while following definite general laws, must still find and follow HIS OR HER OWN WAY OF ADAPTING these to personal circumstances.”
