Section One: Living a Safe Universe

By Lynda Madden Dahl: Seth says, “When man realizes that he, himself, creates his personal and universal environment in concrete terms, then he can begin to create a private and universal environment much superior to the (present) one that is a result of haphazard and unenlightened constructions. This is our main message to the world, and this is the next line in man's conceptual development…” Haphazard and unenlightened constructions. That’s what Seth says we’re creating to date, and he’s talking about in our personal as well as public lives. However, he then says, “When you get to the point that you realize you are forming your day-to-day existence and the life that you know, then you can begin to alter your own mental and psychic patterns, and therefore change your daily environment…. The entire structure of your existence will begin to change with these realizations…” And Seth has been doing his best to help us along. He says: “…Not only have I been trying to divest you of official ideas, but to prepare you for the acceptance of a new version of reality…” So, what are the official ideas Seth is trying to divest us of so we can live…
By Lynda Madden Dahl: Before what Seth calls the beginning – or before objectified reality, when the only reality was subjective - all things – realities, identities, objects, etc. - were already created and held within All That Is. They simply were not materialized or expressed outside of the subjective reality of All That Is. But even after objective reality, or in our case physical reality, was created by All That Is as an extension of itself, not all of ATI was or can ever be fully expressed or objectified – part of it always has to be unexpressed. But it’s a pressing desire on the part of ATI to continually materialize some of itself, so there is a constant attempt to do so. And this attempt, this trying, results in action. Not the action of motion as we know it, but the action of ATI. Seth says, “Action is the breath of inner vitality (or All that Is), of which all materializations of any kind are composed. It represents the relationship between unexpressed inner vitality and materialized vitality.” Some might call it creation. So, action – or the breath of inner vitality - begins from within ATI and is…
By Lynda Madden Dahl: Seth says, “You need not say, ‘The universe is safe,’ for, at your present levels, that will only enrage you! You say instead, ‘I live in a safe universe,’ and so you shall.” When all is said and done, what we really want out of this existence is to live in a personal safe universe, isn’t it? That is, we want to live without doubt, without fear, with clarity and with absolute trust, because with that psychic platform under us, our creative bases are covered. No more haphazard and unenlightened constructions that seem out of our control, but instead constructions that mirror back satisfaction and our innate understanding and use of the nature of reality. And an interesting thing happens along the way to a safe universe. We redefine our self. Indeed, we cannot get from here to there without that redefinition in place, because we can’t create overall safety without understanding why safety is even possible. And that “why” is answered only through an expanded understanding of the self. In the first Seth Talk, we started that redefinition of self by discussing the three creative dilemmas, action and identities. And each subsequent Seth Talk entry…
By Lynda Madden Dahl: Seth says, “The matter of time is highly important if you have any hopes of understanding the self.” Why is that? Why would understanding time help us understand ourselves better? Because the concept of the spacious present – which Seth says is the only sort of time that has any real meaning – blows to hell and gone the boundaries imposed by linear time thinking. In one fell swoop we break out of that official line of consciousness Seth talks about in Seth Talk entry #1, and move our minds to a whole new way of organizing our thoughts, and therefore our realities.Normally we see ourselves living a timeline from birth to death, residing on terra firma and watching as the moments pass into days, then months, then years. Our past seems firm and tidy, a true and unchanging picture of where we’ve been, and our future awaits us, replete with discrete events that will happen to us. Here we reside, human beings physically separated from everything and everybody by space and time.That picture tightly defines us and our boundaries. Before we even take into additional consideration the psychological and physical aspects of ourselves, we’ve acceded…
By Lynda Madden Dahl: As you know by now, one of the purposes of Seth Talk is to redefine, or broaden, our definition of self. And it isn’t just an interesting but ultimately impractical exercise we’re undertaking here. What we’re attempting to do is live a safe universe, right? Which, by its definition, suggests we’ve found ways to seriously lessen the frequency, strength and duration of haphazard and unenlightened constructions in our individual camouflage realities and increase experience of more pleasant events. And if we continue to accept our self as locked in linear time/cause and effect, then we’re missing the key to freedom. So here in Seth Talk we’re working from the top down, so to speak. We’re not starting with camouflage reality as our baseline and then attempting to create a safe universe within all the distortions that come with a strongly held belief of our self in linear time and the impotence and hopelessness that sometimes accompanies it. What we’re attempting to do is redefine the self by starting where the self starts – with All That Is – and working “down” to camouflage reality instead of “up” from it, thereby recognizing our true abilities as consciousness.…
By Lynda Madden Dahl: Ahhh, we’ve finally reached a point in Seth Talk where we can start talking “practical.” There are, of course, overwhelming practical implications in everything we’ve looked at so far – from All That Is to the three creative dilemmas, to action, to the spacious present, to significances and subjectivity continuity. It’s all very practical for one main reason: the “whole” so far tells us precisely how creation happens. No more confusion, no more wondering, no more sense of being so overwhelmed by Seth’s concepts that we feel they’re almost beyond our grasp. That part of creation is now very clear. But there’s more to come today, and it will really knock your socks off. The subject is suggestion. Suggestion? Well, yeah, it sounds interesting and all that, but knock your socks off? Let’s back up for a moment and set the stage. In previous Seth Talk entries, we learned that All That Is is continually attempting to materialize some of itself, and that attempt results in action. Not motion as we know and define it, but the action of All That Is. In entry #1, Seth says, “Action is the breath of inner vitality (or All…
