“You were born into a state of grace, therefore. It is impossible for you to leave it. You will die in a state of grace whether or not special words are spoken for you, or water or oil is poured upon your head. You share this blessing with the animals and all other living things. You cannot “fall out of” grace, nor can it be taken from you.”
— The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 9: Session 636, January 29, 1973

“People die when they are ready to die, for reasons that are their own. No person dies without a reason. You are not taught that, however, so people do not recognize their own reasons for dying, and they are not taught to recognize their own reasons for living, because you are told that life itself is an accident in a cosmic game of chance.”
— The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Chapter 6: Session 835, February 7, 1979


“People die for “a cause” only when they have found no cause to live by.”
— The Individual and Nature of mass Events, Chapter 5: Session 833, January 31, 1979

You are given the gift of the gods; you create your reality according to your beliefs; yours is the creative energy that makes your world; there are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.”
— The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 22: Session 677, July 11, 1973


“There is nothing stopping you but your own imagination. Change the nature of your imagination. The power is within your own hands, and I tell you to use it. For I know that you can use it!”
TECS2 ESP Class Session, February 3, 1970



“Infinite intelligence guides and protects me in my activities.”
—The Early Sessions, Book 9, Session 493, July 14, 1969

“Let me take this moment to state again that there are no devils or demons, except as you create them out of your belief.”
– Seth Speaks, chapter 21, session 587, July 28, 28, 1971


“It is important that you realize that spiritual ignorance is at the basis of so many of your problems, and that indeed your only limitations are spiritual ones.”
— Seth Speaks, Chapter 21: Session 586, July 24, 1971

“Affirmation then means the loving acceptance of your own unique individuality. It may involve denial, where you refuse to accept the visions or dogmas of others in order to more clearly perceive and form your own.

Such affirmation will lead you to your own inner discoveries, and attract from the deepest portions of your being the particular kind of information, experience, or perception that you need. The loving acceptance of yourself will allow you to ride through beliefs as you would through the changing characteristics of a countryside. The more a belief encourages you to use your abilities and vitality, then the more affirmative it is.

Ruburt’s perception is highly altered this evening, and this is an example of certain kinds of both affirmation and denial. He has always emphasized his own unique creative and intuitive processes. In so doing, he denied many of the concepts believed in by others. He accepted the belief that any consciousness could be in some kind of direct intimate contact with experiences and realities usually not perceived, but ignored.”
— Nature of Personal Reality, Chapter 21: Session 675, July 4, 1973

“See your thoughts as the real events.”
—Nature of Mass Events, Chapter 5: Session 830, March 27, 1978“If you would identify yourself with your entity instead of with your present personality, you’d be a lot better off.”
 — The Early Sessions, volume 1, Session 21 February 3, 1964
“Unfortunately, the words fail to describe many of the basics that I would have you understand. You have within yourself, however, the ability to release your intuitions and to receive inner knowledge.”

— SS Chapter 11: Session 547, August 24, 1970

“You can “come awake” from your normal waking state, and that is the natural next step for consciousness to follow — one for which your biology has already equipped you.”

— The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Chapter 5: Session 830, March 27, 1978

“I have spoken through others. Had Ruburt not been available, the material would have been given to a Speaker living, in your terms, who was also involved in the creative field.

–SS Chapter 20: Session 584, May 3, 1971



“When I look at you, I see a multidimensional form in motion, a geometrical collection of highly intensified energy, with a nucleus that is your whole self. The self that you know is only a small portion of that self, boxed in, so to speak, by its limited perception.”

— The Personal Sessions, Volume 1, Session 371, October 11, 1967

“The race also realizes well the advantages and disadvantages of the physical reality it has adopted. It knows for example that there is a tendency to go to extremes. I mentioned earlier that the rewards, the challenges and the dangers exist precisely because so much freedom is allowed.

The horror and the results of mismanagement, and the vulnerability, are the teaching methods that each consciousness has accepted before entering your system. There is no way out but to learn or to ruin the entire system. In no other field of reality are the terms so drastic. For this reason the inner self withholds much of its knowledge. There must be no leaning upon the very basic fact that behind and within the system there is relief. You must believe in the physical reality and accept the vulnerability.”

—TES9 Session 498 August 25, 1969


“You are a soul; you are a particular manifestation of a soul, and it is sheer nonsense to think that you must remain ignorant of the nature of your own being.”
—Seth Speaks, Chapter 6: Session 528, May 13, 1970


Seth Two: “Again, there are many others like us. We attempt to translate realities into terms that you can comprehend. We change our face and form but we are always the one. We are therefore always a part of the one entity which is the Seth entity.”

“Now when you understand that intellectually, then the intellect can take it for granted that its own information is not all the information you possess.”
—TMA Session Two: August 11, 1980In no other field of reality are the terms so drastic. For this reason the inner self withholds much of its knowledge. There must be no leaning upon the very basic fact that behind and within the system there is relief. You must believe in the physical reality and accept the vulnerability.”

Seth on Sensing Your Greater Being

“True spirituality is a thing of joy and of the earth and has nothing to do with fake adult dignity. It has nothing to do with long words and sorrowful faces. It has to do with the dance of consciousness that is within you and with the sense of spiritual adventure that is within your hearts.”
—The Early Class Sessions, Book 2 ESP Class—From an Earlier Session (Note: Attached to June 23, 1970 ESP Class Session.)

“Now. Those within the system know this. Regardless of what you may think of their present performance at any given “time” in quotes, it is from this system that the greatest potentials emerge; for having dealt with it, consciousness undergoes one of the severest tests in learning to handle its own energy.”

—TES9 Session 498 August 25, 1969

“When you are aware of the existence of the entity and of the soul, you can consciously draw upon their greater energy, understanding and strength.”
—NoPR Chapter 9: Session 637, January 31, 1973There are far more wonders to perceive through this inward exploration than you can possibly believe until you begin such a journey for yourself.”
—SS Chapter 6: Session 528, May 13, 1970

“You need to learn the power of thought and emotion, but this should fill you with the joy of creativity.”
—Seth Speaks, Appendix: ESP Class Session: Tuesday, January 5, 1971

We change all the time; so the past that we’re so obsessed with is not really our past anymore. ~Seth ~

“You Are Yourselves The Ancient Dreamers Who Dreamed Your World Into Being”
–Dreams, “Evolution,” and Value Fulfillment, Session 898: Jan 30, 1980

“When you affirm your own rightness in the universe, then you cooperate with others easily and automatically as a part of your own nature. You, being yourself, help others be themselves. You are not jealous of talents you do not possess, and so you can openheartedly encourage them in others. Because you recognize your own uniqueness you will not need to dominate others, nor cringe before them.”

“You must begin to trust yourself sometime. I suggest you do it now. If you do not then you will forever be looking to others to prove your own merit to you, and you will never be satisfied. You will always be asking others what to do, and at the same time resenting those from whom you seek such aid. It will seem to you that their experience is legitimate and yours counterfeit. You will feel shortchanged.”

“You will find yourself exaggerating the negative aspects of your life, and the positive sides of other people’s experiences. You are a multidimensional personality. Trust the miracle of your own being. Make no divisions between the physical and the spiritual in your lifetimes, for the spiritual speaks with a physical voice and the corporeal body is the creation of the spirit.”

“Do not place the words of gurus, ministers, priests, scientists, psychologists, friends — or my words — higher than the feelings of your own being. You can learn much from others, but the deepest knowledge must come from within yourself. Your own consciousness is embarked upon a reality that basically can be experienced by no other, that is unique and untranslatable, with its own meaning, following its own paths of becoming.”

“You share an existence with others who are experiencing their own journeys in their own ways, and you have journeying in common, then. Be kind to yourself and to your companions.”

—Nature of Personal Reality, Chapter 22: Session 677, July 11, 1973

Seth Two Speaks: “It was instrumental, with many other entities, in the early formation of energy into physical form. We are not alone in this endeavor, for through your centuries other entities like us have also appeared and spoken. Many of us have not been born in flesh, as I have not been, but other portions of the personality have appeared in flesh; and some portions of us will always be born in flesh…Seth as you know him will not be reincarnated, but other portions of the personality will be born in flesh for we have a part in all worlds and all realities. We are among the most ancient of entities in your terms.”

–The Early Sessions, Book 8: Session 419, June 26, 1968

“Hatred of war will not bring peace… Only love of peace will bring about those conditions.”

“You are alive to express the individualistic life-force that is the source of your being.”

— TPS6 Deleted Session March 25, 1981

“My psychic initiation really began one evening in September, 1963 as I sat writing poetry. Suddenly my consciousness left my body, and my mind was barraged by ideas that were astonishing and new to me at the time. On return to my body, I discovered that my hands had produced an automatic script, explaining many of the concepts that I’d been given. The notes were even titled: “The Physical Universe as Idea Construction.”

Because of that experience, I began doing research into psychic activity, and planned a book on the project. In line with this, my husband Rob, and I experimented with a Ouija board late in 1963. After the first few sessions, the pointer spelled out messages that claimed to come from a personality called Seth.

Neither Rob nor I had any psychic background, and when I began to anticipate the board’s replies, I took it for granted that they were coming from my subconscious. Not long after, however, I felt impelled to say the words aloud, and within a month I was speaking for Seth while in a trance state.

The messages seemed to begin where Idea Construction left off, and later Seth said that my initial expansion-of-consciousness experience had represented his first attempt at contact…”

– Seth Speaks, edited from the Introduction by Jane Roberts.

“What you do is good. What you are is good. You have only to tell yourself that until you believe it, because it is the truth. You are unique. There is no other in this room like you. There is no other in this universe or any other universe like you. You are completely unique and through you the energy of All That Is flows in a completely unique, original and never to be duplicated pattern. Therefore what you are is eternally, with meaning and purpose, and rings to the universe. Your thoughts change worlds, worlds of which you are aware and worlds of which you are not aware.

I speak to you, but I speak also to each of you, for you are each unique and like no other, and All That Is flows through you in a way that it can flow through no other. The experiences that you have can happen to no other in precisely the same way. The smile that you give can be given in no other way. You can smile as an individual in a way that no other human being, dead or alive, can smile. And the touch of your hand can change a life in a way that no other individual, alive or dead, could change that life. You act upon those that you know and those that you do not know in ways that no other individual can ever act. In each of you resides a uniqueness that is never recaptured, no matter how many times you are reincarnated. The self that you are now is unique and therefore it is highly important that you honor the self that you are, through which the vitality of the universe shines. Honor yourself as you would honor the gods. Then indeed do you also honor others? Deny yourself and you deny others.

The truths, the honesty, and if you will forgive me, the magic of the universe shines through your eyes and your skin. Then why should you say I am wrong? You are the reflection of All That Is as it has never been reflected before and never will again. Therefore have trust in the nature of your being and I speak now to each of you. Your cells realize those truths. They are themselves and they sing to the universe of your being. Then should you sing to the universe as you know it, as cleanly and as filled with joy? So then rejoice in what you are and each of you never to be duplicated, never again to be known. Yet you are eternally forever renewed in mysteries that you cannot understand so know yourselves honor yourselves.”

“Your human stock did not all originate solely from your planet. I never told you that it did. In that respect your ancestry is indeed varied. Some of the information given in my own book, by inference, should have made that clear.

Evolution, as it is thought of, had many different aspects in those terms. There were three or four beginning points. Do you follow me?

There were then visits from others in other planetary systems. In that regard this is quite natural. Your own relative isolation is far from the average. The legends, many of them therefore, were of course chronicles of quite legitimate physical events, describing phenomena for example for which natives had no adequate vocabulary. They were forced to describe what they saw by making comparisons with objects and events already familiar to them.

Some such visitors in your terms were more evolved than others. All however would appear as superhuman in contrast to those civilizations that encountered them. There were some deliberate experiments that were in fact far more dangerous to the experimenters, always in which the experimenters tried in one way or another to advance man’s knowledge.

It is not nearly as simple as that, however. There is not a one-line development. By the time that feasible intersystem space travel is practical, the psychic abilities are developed to a very high degree. One is necessary for the other. Therefore, it became much more feasible to approach earthmen during their dream state, when their natural fear reactions were somewhat minimized, and where the danger to the visitors was far less.

Out-of-body encounters were used as matter of course. The visitor could appear and disappear then without fear of pursuit. Civilizations were often warned in advance of natural disasters that were apparent to the visitors with their greater viewpoint.

Such warnings were either given in the dream state of the earthmen, for the reasons given, or often in some secluded place, for often the visitors would be attacked. During these eras in your terms, the speakers often acted as go-betweens. Often warnings of disaster were not followed. Some warnings were misunderstood, then, as punishment by the gods for “moral misdoing.”

The whole moral code idea was originally tailored for the current scene as it was encountered, told in terms that the natives could understand.
