Throughout your reincarnational existences you expand your consciousness, your ideas, your perceptions, your values. You break away from self-adopted restrictions, and you grow spiritually as you learn to step aside from limiting conceptions and dogmas.
Your rate of learning depends entirely upon you, however. Limited, dogmatic, or rigid concepts of good and evil can hold you back. Too narrow ideas of the nature of existence can follow you through several lives if you don’t choose to be spiritually and psychically flexible.
These rigid ideas can indeed act as leashes, so that you’re forced to circle like a tied puppy about a very small radius. In such cases, through perhaps a group of existences, you will find yourself battling against ideas of good and evil, running about in a circle of confusion, doubt, and anxiety.
Your friends and acquaintances will be concerned with the same problems, for you will draw to yourself those with the same concerns.

The meaning of an experience can continue to unfold long after it occurs. Have you ever noticed this? I often find myself going back to review old experiences that happened in my past in both physical and dream realities. My Recurring Superman Nightmare is an example. I relived this dream annually for over thirty years until I stopped running from it. When I finally confronted the monster in this lucid dream and understood what it symbolized, it stopped haunting me.
Seth’s example of “a tied puppy, circling about a very small radius” reminds me of an old dog I once saw who had been tied in one place for so long there was no vegetation left on the ground, only dust. He had been living in and kicking up dust for so long, he was blind. I can’t help but wonder, was the dog’s owner, whom I never met, as blind, psychologically speaking, as the dog? Was he blind from circling around the same limiting beliefs for too many years? It makes you wonder.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having (creating) a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
“How you define yourself and the world around you forms your intent, which, in turn, forms your reality.” – Seth
In other words, we create reality from what we choose to think and feel about ourselves and the world around us.
If we don’t consciously choose our beliefs, we unconsciously absorb them from our surroundings.
If our beliefs create reality, can we afford not to question them?
The more we love and understand ourselves, the better we treat ourselves and the world.
Bless us all with love and understanding!
The secrets of the universe lie hidden in the shadows of our experience. Look for them!
