From the Bestselling Author of Seth Speaks and The Nature of Personal Reality...
Speaking exclusively through Jane Roberts, Seth has repeatedly stressed the concept that we create our own reality according to our individual beliefs. But how do our realities merge and combine to form mass reactions such as the overthrow of governments, the birth of a new religion, wars, epidemics, earthquakes, and new periods of art, architecture, and technology?
In this pioneering work, Seth explores the connection between personal beliefs and world events. He pinpoints the unconscious — and often negative — beliefs pervading science and religion, medicine and mythology, and offers thought-provoking reflections on Darwinism, Freudianism, religions, cults, and medical beliefs.
With fascinating and inspiring implications, Seth asserts that the personal impulses we are often taught to see as dangerous, chaotic, or contradictory, are instead crucial to the best interests of the species and the natural world, for they lead us to live “not only as loving caretakers, but as partners with other species.”
“Only people who trust their spontaneous impulses can be consciously wise enough to choose from a myriad of probable futures the most promising events….” — Jane Roberts, Speaking for Seth

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This was my personal favorite of the series. Intensely interesting with the perspective on Jonestown and other cult and mass events. The section entitled "People Who Are Afraid of Themselves" was some of the best reading I've done on anything of this nature.
