Excerpt from Seth Speaks who refers to himself as (An Energy Personality Essence). Yeah, I know some of you will say what the heck are we dealing with now so, I ask that you not react to the form of the messenger but to read with an open mind the message.

You create the world that you know. You have been given
perhaps the most awesome gift of all: the ability to project your thoughts outward into physical form.
The gift brings a responsibility, and many of you are tempted to congratulate yourselves on the successes of your lives, and blame God, fate, and society for your failures. In like manner, mankind has a tendency to project his own guilt and his own errors upon a father-god image, who it seems must grow weary of so many complaints.

The fact is that each of you create your own physical reality; and enmasse, you
create both the glories and the terrors that exist within your earthly experience.
Until you realize that you are the creators, you will refuse to accept this responsibility. Nor can you blame a Devil for the world's misfortunes.
You have grown sophisticated enough to realize that the Devil is a projection of your own psyche, but you have not grown wise enough to learn how to use your creativity constructively.


As a species you have grown "ego bound" instead. held in a spiritual rigidity with the intuitive portions of the self either denied or distorted beyond any recognition.

Yes I see the quotes, but the fact remains the so called "female" form is still an afterthought. Just like in all the other patriarchal religions.

One problem I have with religions in the present day is that they all seem to praise men men men.
I would love to see praise of women women women too.

Religions do not embrace polarity. They embrace division. Thus, the world you see :confused:
Yes brother Mike, I wrote a piece about it and I hope that you will take some time to read it and see that were not that dissimilar on the topic of religion.

Here's a little something just to marinate over.
Taken From the Book Seth Speaks; Chapter 14
Stories of The Beginning and The Multidimensional God

Only a portion of your entire identity is "presently" familiar to you, as you know.
Therefore, when you consider the question of a supreme being, you imagine a male
personality with those abilities that you yourselves possess, with great emphasis upon
qualities you admire. This imagined god has therefore changed throughout your
centuries, mirroring man's shifting ideas of himself.
God was seen as cruel and powerful when man believed that these were desirable
characteristics, needed particularly in his battle for physical survival. He projected
these upon his idea of a god because he envied them and feared them. You have cast
your idea of god, therefore, in your own image.

In a reality that is inconceivably multidimensional, the old concepts of God are
relatively meaningless. Even the term, a supreme being, is in itself distortive, for you
naturally project the qualities of human nature in it. If I told you that God was an idea,
you would not understand what I meant, for you do not understand the dimensions in
which an idea has its reality, or the energy that it can originate and propel. You do not
believe in ideas in the same way that you believe in physical objects, so if I tell you that
God is an idea, you will misinterpret this to mean that God is less than real - nebulous,
without reality, without purpose, and without motive action.

Now your own physical image is the materialization of your idea of yourself within
the properties of matter. Without the idea of yourself, your physical image would not be;
yet often it is all you are aware of. The initial power and energy of that idea of yourself
keeps your image alive. Ideas, then, are far more important than you realize. If you will
try to accept the idea that your own existence is multidimensional, that you dwell
within the medium of infinite probabilities, then you may catch a slight glimpse of the
reality that is behind the word "god," and you may understand why it is almost
impossible to capture a true understanding of that concept in words.

God, therefore, is first of all a creator, not of one physical universe but of an infinite
variety of probable existences, far more vast than those aspects of the physical universe
with which your scientists are familiar. He did not simply then send a son to live and
die on one small planet. He is a wart of all probabilities.



God does not exist apart from or separate from physical reality, but exists within it and as a wart of it, as he exists within and as a wart of all other systems of existence.

I can appreciate this. If they get rid of the word "god" and "he", I would contend we are evolving.

God and he are being used because of mankind's concept of a supreme being. As you will see, Seth says in the first sentence (you imagine a male personality as the supreme being) and the second he says again (this imagined God
has therefore changed throughout your centuries, mirroring man's shifting ideas of himself). This is an imagined being!

A few paragraphs down on the same page he also states;
Your Christ figure represents, symbolically, your idea of God and his relationships.
There were three separate individuals whose history blended, and they became known
collectively as Christ – hence many discrepancies in your records. These were all males

because at that one time of your development, you would not have accepted a "female counterpart".
So, I would say that one can have an appreciation for the material content and at the same time understand the context in which those two words are being used. Don't throw away the money because the wallet has a few small holes in it.

So the fact that I "literally" used the word 'appreciate' in my comment give you that impression? lol

I misunderstood your reply Mike. I thought you were implying that you could only appreciate the material if those words were not used. I got it now brother.. Appreciate the appreciation.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
Life is a poem, love is the pen.
