The Wisdom of Seth Pours from the Pages.
Here is a Sampling of the Teachings of Seth…
THIS PAGE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION…
We were adding a lot more quotes to this page recently when it started “glitching out” on us. 🙁 Kate worked out some tech-probs. We found out we needed to start fresh…
So we decided to turn this page into
3 NEW PAGES of SETH QUOTES.
We are working on them now. Give us about a week to finish up.
Then we’ll take down this page and put up the 3 New Pages.
Below it’s as messy as a house being renovated…
and we know what that’s like…
Hang in there with us, more to come.
Enjoy what’s here. Thanks.
“You create your own reality.” — Seth Speaks Chapter 11: Session 546, August 19, 1970
“Miracles are nature unimpeded.” — The Personal Sessions
“Suffering is not good for the soul, unless it teaches you how to stop suffering. That is its purpose.” — Seth Speaks, Chapter 20: Session 580, April 12, 1971
“You are in physical existence to learn and understand that your energy, translated into feelings, thoughts and emotions, causes all experience. There are no exceptions.” — The Nature of Personal Realty, Chapter 2: Session 614, September 13, 1972
“What exists physically exists first in thought and feeling.” — The Nature of Personal Reality Preface by Seth: Session 609, April 10, 1972
“To change the world for the better, you must begin by changing your own life. There is no other way.” — The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Chapter 10: Session 870, August 1, 1979
“Life is a gift (and not a curse). I am a unique, worthy creature in the natural world, which everywhere surrounds me, gives me sustenance, and reminds me of the greater source from which I myself and the world both emerge. My body is delightfully suited to its environment, and comes to me, again, from that unknown source which shows itself through all of the events of the physical world. That feeling gives the organism the optimism, the joy, and the ever-abundant energy to grow. It encourages curiosity and creativity, and places the individual in a spiritual world and a natural one at once.” — The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Chapter 2: Session 814, October 8, 1977
“You get what you concentrate upon. There is no other main rule.” — The Nature of Personal Realty, Chapter 3: Session 617, September 25, 1972
“Know that within your physical atoms now the origins of all consciousness still sings…” — The Early Class Session Book 1 Session 494, ESP Class Session, July 15, 1969
“Consciousness creates form. It is not the other way around. All personalities are not physical. It is only because you are so busily concerned with daily matters that you do not realize that there is a portion of you who knows that its own powers are far superior to those shown by the ordinary self.” — Seth Speaks Chapter 1: Session 511, January 21, 1970
“The truth as far as it can be stated is this: YOU FORM YOUR REALITY NOW, in capital letters, through the intersection of soul in flesh, and in your terms the present is your point of power.” — The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 15: Session 657, April 18, 1973
“First of all, a soul is not something that you have. It is what you are.” — Seth Speaks Chapter 6: Session 526, May 4, 1970
“Ideas not only alter the world constantly, they make it constantly.” — The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 4: Session 622, October 18, 1972
“The personality is given the greatest gift of all; you get exactly what you want to get. You create from nothing the experience that is your own. If you do not like your experience, then look within yourself and change it. But realize also that you are responsible for your joys and triumphs, and that the energy to create any of these realities comes from the inner self. What you do with it is up to the individual personality.” — Seth Speaks Appendix: ESP Class Session: Tuesday, February 9, 1971
“The interior drama, therefore, is always the important one. The “story of your life” is written by you, by each reader of this book. You are the author. There is no reason, therefore, for you to view the drama and feel trapped by it. The power to change your own condition is your own. You have only to exercise it.” — Seth Speaks Appendix: Session 594, September 13, 1971
“True creativity comes from enjoying the moments, which then fulfill themselves, and a part of the creative process is indeed the art of relaxation, the letting go, for that triggers magical activity…” — The Magical Approach Session One: August 6, 1980
“Each mental act opens up a new dimension of actuality. In a manner of speaking, your slightest thought gives birth to worlds. This is not a dry metaphysical statement. It should arouse within you the strongest feelings of creativity and speculation. It is impossible for any being to be sterile, for any idea to die, or any ability to go unfulfilled.” — Seth Speaks Chapter 16: Session 565, February 1, 1971
“Live every day to its fullest, and do not be a slave to your hopes for the future. If you do not learn to enjoy today you will not enjoy the future no matter what it may bring.” — The Early Sessions Book 8 Session 359 August 7, 1967
“You cannot appreciate your spirituality unless you appreciate your creaturehood. It is not a matter of rising above your nature, but of evolving from the full understanding of it. There is a difference.” — The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 11: Session 642, February 21, 1973
“You were not born yesterday. Your soul was not born yesterday, in those terms, but before the annals of time as you think of time.” — The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 1: Session 610, June 7, 1972
“For at no time are any events predestined. There should be no such word in your vocabulary, for with every moment you change, and every heartbeat is an action, and every action changes every other action.” —The Early Sessions Book 5 Session 204 November 1, 1965
“You create your life through the inner power of your being, whose source is within you and yet beyond the selves that you know. Use those creative abilities with understanding abandon. Honor yourselves and move through the godliness of your being.” — The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 22: Session 677, July 11, 1973
“Your desire or belief will literally be reaching back into time, teaching the nerves new tricks. Definite reorganizations in that past will occur in your present, allowing you to behave in entirely new fashions. Learned behavior therefore alters not only present and future but also past conduct.” — The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 14: Session 654, April 9, 1973
“When you do not know what to do, relax and tell yourself that other portions of yourself do know; they will take over. Give yourself some rest. Remind yourself that in many ways you are a very successful person as you are. Success does not necessarily involve great intellect or great position or great wealth; it has to do with inner integrity. Remember that.” — Seth Speaks Appendix: ESP Class Session: Tuesday, January 12, 1971
“I told you to tell yourself: I will only react to constructive suggestions. If however, you find yourself harboring a negative suggestion, then instantly counter it by replacing it with a constructive one.” — The Early Sessions Book 7 Session 332 April 5, 1967
“The imagination, backed by great expectations, can bring about almost any reality within the range of probabilities.” — Dreams, ‘Evolution’, and Value Fulfillment Book 1 Chapter 3: Session 891, December 26, 1979
“There is nothing more stimulating, more worthy of actualization, than the desire to change the world for the better. That is indeed each person’s mission. You begin by working in that area of activity that is your own unique one, with your own life and activities. You begin in the corner of an office, or on the assembly line, or in the advertising agency, or in the kitchen. You begin where you are.” — The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Chapter 7: Session 850, May 2, 1979
“Your happiness is not dependent upon events, it is not dependent upon youth, it is not dependent upon what seems to happen to you… …happiness comes from feeling within yourself the wonder and the joy that is within yourself and there is no other way in any world of experiencing happiness. You cannot expect a lover to give it to you, you cannot expect a child to give it to you, you cannot expect events to give it to you. It is yours by right if you claim it… Now, the tiniest cell within your tiniest toe is happy. Feel its happiness. Feel the vitality that is your self as it always pervades your being. It is within you now keeping you alive… so acknowledge it and listen and feel within yourself for that life energy that is always within you.” ~ The Early Class Sessions
“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.” — The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 22: Session 677, July 11, 1973
“You are so a part of the world that your slightest action contributes to its reality.” — The Nature of the Psyche: Its Human Expression Chapter 7: Session 780, June 22, 1976
“Your breath changes the atmosphere. Your encounters with others alter the fabrics of their lives, and the lives of those who come in contact with them.” — The Nature of the Psyche: Its Human Expression Chapter 7: Session 780, June 22, 1976
“Do not personally give any more conscious consideration, either of you, to events that you do not want to happen. Any such concentration, to whatever degree, ties you in with those probabilities, so concentrate upon what you want, and as far as public events are concerned, take it for granted that sometimes even men are wiser than they know.” — Dreams, ‘Evolution’, and Value Fulfillment Book 1 Chapter 3: Session 891, December 26, 1979
“A feeling of self-approval is absolutely necessary for any true sense of well-being; it is not (underlined) virtuous in any way to put yourself down, or to punish yourself, because you do not feel you have lived up to your best behavior at any given time.” — The Way Toward Health Chapter 2: February 6, 1984
“Love your neighbor as yourself.” Turn this around and say, “Love yourself as you love your neighbor,” for often you will recognize the goodness in another and ignore it in yourself. Some people believe there is a great merit and holy virtue in what they think of as humility. Therefore to be proud of oneself seems a sin, and in that frame of reference true affirmation of the self is impossible. Genuine self-pride is the loving recognition of your own integrity and value. True humility is based upon this affectionate regard for yourself, plus the recognition that you live in a universe in which all other beings also possess this undeniable individuality and self-worth.” — The Nature of Personal Reality Chapter 21: Session 674, July 2, 1973
The whole is the sum of its hearts
Death & Reincarnation
“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 Create Your Own Reality
“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
Changing This Collective Reality for the Better
Your Inner Worlds
There are far more wonders to be achieved through this inward exploration than you can possibly believe.” – Seth
The Reality of our Thoughts
“See your thoughts as the real events.”- Seth
All environments are our mental productions, so just enjoy it. ~ Seth ~
MEME -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. – Seth
“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
“Infinite intelligence guides and protects me in my activities.”
“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.
(10:01.) 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.
[… 2 paragraphs …]
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.”
—NoPR Chapter 22: Session 677, July 11, 1973
“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
The Energy That You Are
Seth Quote Cards # 8 – You are here to learn to control the energy that you are, of your being.
Entity, Oversoul, Higher Self
“Seth Speaks” Chapter: Session #545
NPR – Chapter, Session, page
Seth asked for these words to be separated out differently on the page:
“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
** When you are aware of the existence of the entity or of the soul, you can consciously draw upon that greater energy, understanding and strength.
** There are far more wonders to perceive through this inward exploration than you can possibly believe until you begin such a journey for yourself.
** The intellect can take it for granted that its own information is not all the information you possess.

The Intense Nature of this Reality
“IN NO OTHER FIELD OF REALITY ARE THE TERMS SO DRASTIC”
“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.”
“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.
“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.
“Now, from your system spring some of the most advanced of all identities. They go on and learn from other realities, granted, but yours is the hardest to manage, and those who accept it go off into a certain line of development where the potentials are beyond anything of which you can presently conceive.
“Now I am telling you this evening not only because of your own earlier discussion, but also because this material will fit in with other sessions that I have in mind. You are not only ready for them but you are demanding them, and until you are ready you would not understand them.
“First, quite simply, there are many who do not see those failings and shortcomings and trends of which you spoke earlier. They cannot be told; they learn. Now alone they would not be permitted to destroy an entire reality. The mixture of consciousness within your system gives some control. The child must mature, and your system is a maturing ground, a very primary one. A beginning school for those who are trying out for particular kinds of experience. Some simply will not succeed. They will continue instead along other lines of development.
“Now, you have quite literally put in your time, for centuries. (Humorously.) This is one of the reasons that you find yourself very impatient with the development of your fellows, who have not had that advantage as yet. You have learned. You cannot understand why they have not.”

Opening Ourselves to Greater Awareness & Intuitions
“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
“Hatred of war will not bring peace… Only love of peace will bring about those conditions.” — NoPR Chapter 2: Session 615, September 18, 1972
Jane’s Psychic Beginnings
“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.
How Seth Views Us
“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
How Seth Views Himself
Why Are We Here?
“You are alive to express the individualistic life-force that is the source of your being.” — TPS6 Deleted Session March 25, 1981
“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.” — Seth Audio Collection, CD 11, 1 of 2 @26:1
“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. – ‘The Personal Sessions’, Book Two, Session 604, Page 54-55.
Seth Speaks… And is Still Speaking

“SS Appendix: Session 593, August 30, 1971 coordination hole points black entropy
(“Sure; that’s why I get the triangle effect with Seth Two,” she exclaimed. “Only when I’m in a Seth Two trance, the coordination point is in a different direction. […]
(Jane said that while speaking for Seth, she knew the two lines she was indicating met in the west-by-south corner of our room. […] It was just inside the wall, between two of our bay windows and in back of an old-fashioned, exposed steam pipe. […]”
—SS Appendix: Session 593, August 30, 1971
—TES9 Session 501 September 17, 1969
“With Seth’s help Jane first encountered the idea of Seth Two in the 406th session for April 22, 1968. That important development in her abilities took place four and a half years after she began to speak for Seth, and once it opened up Seth Two came through in the next seven twice-weekly sessions. Most of that material hasn’t been published, although in Chapter 17 of The Seth Material Jane described Seth Two to some extent, including “his, hers, or its” intimate connections with Seth: the subjective pyramid or cone effects she experiences just above her head when contacting Seth Two; and the great energy she feels at such times. In Chapter 17 she quoted Seth Two from sessions 406–7, and from a couple of others that were held later in the year. The excerpts show not only something of Seth’s connections on the “other side” of Jane, but in one case her violent reactions of surprise and panic when she attempted to translate something of Seth Two’s reality in terms of our own camouflage world: She found herself deeply involved in an unexpected experience with “massiveness” — one of the subjects I want to refer to in these preliminary notes. And Seth Two — or our imperfect grasp of what such an energy gestalt can mean or represent — comprises at least one of the sources of the Seth material itself.
(Seth Two wasn’t dealt with in Volume 1 of “Unknown” Reality. In Note 1 for Appendix 18, I wrote that I wanted to at least briefly discuss Seth Two in another appendix for this Volume 2, “the idea being that that material can be taken as an extension of the Jane-Ruburt-Seth study presented here.” The few references to Seth Two in Appendix 18 were all meant to be resolved below, including my note that “Seth Two exists in relation to Seth in somewhat the same manner that Seth does to Jane, although that analogy shouldn’t be carried very far.”
*(Following those introductory sessions, Seth Two has spoken at widely spaced intervals. […] Occasionally Jane will speak for Seth Two in class. I do think that she could contact Seth Two at my request. Yet she has to get into a “certain mental climate” in order to reach Seth Two, Jane said, and all of her other trance phenomena — Sumari, and so forth — are also related to that state.*1”
