“In your terms, the inner world does represent Idea Potential as yet unrealized — but those ideas and those potentials DO NOT exist outside of consciousness. They are ideals set in the heart of man, yet in other terms, he is the one who also put them there, out of the deeper knowledge of his being that straddles physical time.
“Existence is wise and COMPASSIONATE, so in certain terms, consciousness, knowing itself as man, sent future extensions of itself out into the time scheme that man would know and lovingly planted signposts for itself to follow “later”.
“Man is himself made as much of God-stuff as earth-stuff, SO IN THOSE TERMS NOW the god in himself yearned toward the man in the god and earth experience. Not understanding yourselves, you have tried to put the idea of God outside of yourselves and your living framework. Through various exercises in this book, I hope to acquaint each of you with the inherent oneness of the inside and outside realities, to give you a glimpse of your own infinite nature even within the bounds of your creaturehood – to help you see the god-stuff in the man-stuff. In other terms, this can help you see the potentials of your species and break down the barriers of limiting thoughts. I would like to change your ideas of human nature. To some extent this will entail HUMANIZING your idea of divinity. But oddly enough, if that is done you will end up seeing the divinity in man.
“Ideals that before seemed beyond the reach of individuals or of the species will change their character and become working models that can be used effectively and joyfully.”

“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 think and feel about ourselves and All That Is.
If we don’t consciously choose our beliefs, we unconsciously absorb them from our surroundings.
If our beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations create reality, can we afford not to question them?
What others will not or cannot do for us, we must do for ourselves.
The secrets of the universe lie hidden in the shadows of our experience. Look for them!
