Jane Roberts’ Seth Speaks was a blockbuster of a book, written by a housewife without a literary reputation or academic credentials. See below for a fascinating video interview with the housewife whose work fascinated both mainstream psychologists and hippie mystics.Here are some quotes from it:

Seth Speaks Quotes

 

“Suffering is not good for the soul, unless it teaches you how to stop suffering. That is its purpose.”

“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.”
“You create your own reality.”
“Suffering is not good for the soul, unless it teaches you how to stop suffering. That is its purpose.”
“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.”
“How many of you would want to limit your reality, your entire reality, to the experience you now know? You do this when you imagine that your present self is your entire personality, or insist that your identity be maintained unchanged through an endless eternity.”
“You prefer to identify with the part of you who watches television or cooks or works — the part you think knows what it is doing.”
“The experiment that would transform your world would operate upon the basic idea that you create your own reality according to the nature of your beliefs, and that all existence was blessed, and that evil did not exist in it. If these ideas were followed individually and collectively, then the evidence of your physical senses would find no contradiction. They would perceive the world and existence as good.”
“My message to the reader will be: “Basically, you are no more of a physical personality than I am, and in telling you of my reality I tell you of your own.”
“When you consider the soul, however, you usually think of it in such a light — unchanging, a psychic or spiritual citadel. But citadels not only keep out invaders, they also prevent expansion and development.”

 

“You would be much better off in reading this book if you asked yourself who you are, rather than asked who I am, for you cannot understand what I am unless you understand the nature of personality and the characteristics of consciousness.”

I hope that this book will serve to release the deeply intuitive self within each of my readers, and to bring to the foreground of consciousness whatever particular insights will serve you most.”

Ploumis Reviews Mad Men

Mad Men ( 2007 – 2015)

Note: the following review was published when
Mad Men was still in production, The series pre-
miered on July 19, 2007, on the cable network AMC.
After seven seasons and 92 episodes, Mad Men’s
final episode aired on May 17, 2015.[1]

Created by: Matthew Weiner

“Make it simple, but significant” – Don Draper

Wise words – but has AMC’s Mad Men taken their own advice? Perhaps not, it’s doesn’t take much arguing to convince audiences that no matter how significant the storyline, Mad Men is ANYTHING but simple. Maybe hypocrisy in this case is a recipe for success. The world  waited with bated breath for the show’s final season that premiered on April 5th 2015. But before we jump to the end of the story, we have to stop and remember the incredible beginning of Mad Men. Continue reading
