In this particular DVD, Jerry explains he has had an interest in spirituality and metaphysical topics for years, having read the book “Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity of the Soul,” written by an entity similar to Abraham called Seth, and channeled through author Jane Roberts in the 1970s. It is now published by New World Library
Months later -- in a very syncronistic way -- I had gone to Barnes and Noble in search of a particular biography, and wandered through the new age section as I usually do. Scanning the shelves, "Seth Speaks" jumped out at me. I remembered hearing Jerry speak about it on the DVD, and when I flipped it over and saw testimonials on the back cover from well-known authors and spiritual teachers like Marianne Williamson, Deepak Chopra and Louise Hay, I immediately purchased it. I now agree with all the testimonials -- this book is essential for anyone on a spiritual journey.
If you are a fan of Abraham and the work of Esther and Jerry Hicks, this book, and other Seth books, are must reads. Seth explains how thought forms matter, the nature of sleep and dreams, reincarnation and more.
There are too many enlightening moments in “Seth Speaks” to list here, but one I want to share (which caused me to turn down the page corner so I wouldn’t forget it) is where Seth is speaking about how thoughts create reality, and how each human being is a piece of Source, God or as Seth refers to it, "All That Is." He explains that by looking at our outer reality, we can discover what is going on inside ourselves. When something goes wrong, such as illness or suffering, it's purpose is to awaken us to realize there is something going wrong inside causing it.
He says in the book, “Through observing his creations, [mankind] learns how to use these abilities better. He checks on his inner progress by seeing the physical materialization of his work. The work, the reality, is still a creative achievement, although it may portray tragedy or unspeakable terror in your terms at any given time … Illness and suffering are the results of misdirection of creative energy. They are a part of the creative force, however. They do not come from a different source than, say, health and vitality. Suffering is not good for the soul, unless it teaches you how to stop suffering. That is its purpose.”
As I said, this is only one of the many insights found in the book! And to think, this book was first published in the 1970s!
