Symbols are great exuberant playthings. You can learn from them, as once you piled alphabet blocks together in a stack at school. Symbols are as natural to your minds as trees are to the earth.
There is a difference, however, between a story told to children about forests and a real child in a real woods. But IN YOUR TERMS the child entering the real woods becomes involved in its life cycle, treads upon leaves that fell yesterday, rests beneath trees far older than his or her memory, and looks up at night to see a moon that will soon disappear. Looking at an illustration of the woods may give a child some excellent imaginative experiences, but they will be of a different kind, and the child knows the difference.
If you mistake the symbols for the reality, however, you will program your experience, and you will insist that each forest look like the pictures in your book. In other words, you will expect your own experiences with various portions of your psyche to be more or less the same. You will take your local laws with you, and you will try to tell psychic time with a wristwatch. I was weary of the old. Great to be excited with the new.
This is my Seth recital. Now in larger terms, in the predream states you are aware of all the activities of your own greater psyche as it participates in - and contributes to - the infinite existence of psychic consciousness as you understand it, and becomes aware of the Psychological realities that form the framework of its own stability.
Now what I have called the predream state here is actually one in which you are always immersed whether you are waking or sleeping, or whether in your terms you are alive or dead. It involves conditions in which direct knowing primarily operates. It is your natural state of being. This is characterized perhaps most of all by more perceptive psychological organizations.
In the predream state you participate in such organizations, although you bring back home to your physical self - in the form of dreams - only data that can be recognized and used in physical terms. It is highly important to remember that your experience and knowledge grows at those other levels of actuality.
The dream state can be used then as a psychological or psychic platform to view other realities and to glimpse the inner mechanics by which non physical events become actualized in your world. In terms of history some ancient races achieved such goals but in your terms so long ago you cannot find evidence of their knowledge. Throughout the centuries various individuals have come close yet had no vehicle of expression that would enable the members of the species to understand.
They possessed methods, but the methods presupposed or necessitated knowledge others did not possess. You are everywhere surrounded by, supported by and a part of psychological entities infinite in their variety. The Nature of the Psyche excerpts. Mike October 4, , pm 1.
