I first came across the Seth material almost ten years ago. I was only 18 then, and Seth's insights resonated with me so deeply that I found them overwhelming. Recently I found myself seeking the books out again--they had just never really left my consciousness. And now I find myself reading them very, very slowly--for this material is incredibly dense--absorbing perhaps one session per day, if that. Seth's advice is so relevant, so intelligent, so unbelievably real--it doesn't just "ring true," it IS true.
I've been practicing Zen Buddhism for the past 5 years, and everything in this book resonates with the direct experience I've had of all-that-is in deep meditation. I think anyone with a spiritual background could supplement their understanding of "God" or what have you by reading this book.
I desperately want to give this book to everyone I know--but I understand that the whole "channeling thing" makes people raise their eyebrows. It's too bad about that, and too bad that this book is shelved in the "New Age" section, since "New Age" has become some kind of joke. Maybe that's part of the reason that NPR hasn't been siezed on by the scientific community, philosophers, and the medical establishment--all of which could benefit immensely from reading the material. It's revolutionary on all those fronts, and more.
This book, paragraph by paragraph, concept by incredible concept, just makes such exquisite sense. And by "sense" I mean intellectual sense, spiritual sense, and intuitive sense. You read it, and you feel the truth of it in your body, in your--dare I say?--soul.
Why isn't "The Nature of Personal Reality" required reading for everyone on the planet? I have no doubt we could create a different world with the information in it. In fact, we need it now more than ever.
