Aging is not a primary reality
"...for the dream experiments that we plan will enable you to
accumulate in time a list of primaries...it will be shortly
discovered that the physical organism does not age in sleep
at the same rate at which it ages in the waking state.
Aging, therefore, is not a primary... A recognition of the
differences between primary and secondary conditions can
however allow you to minimize the effects of the secondary
conditions to some considerable degree."
Seth, session 208
was greater than itself. (Seth smiled). The possibilities that
have come to reality within this universal system have each
given birth to other systems and realities, as one tree bears
a thousand seeds. You, yourselves, through your own mental
actions, create realities of which you are unaware, and you
give birth to more than physical children."

Think and Ye Shall Receive
"There are in your terms, then, unlimited probable future
events for which you are now setting groundwork. The nature
of the thoughts and feelings you originate and those that
you habitually or characteristically receive set a pattern,
so you will choose from those probable futures those
events that will physically become your experience."
Seth, Session 566
"There is greatness in each of you.
Do not ever snicker when someone tells you that they want
to be great, or you want to be great, and you know what
that means, in the terms of your culture.
For to be great in those terms is always to go beyond, to
challenge even the self that you know, to become familiar
with other portions of yourself that you sense, and to
manifest them within your own experience NOW."
Conversations with Seth, Volume 1, Appendix 4
As the times change you tire of the old ways. Even your dreams
begin to reach out into new avenues. The relationships between
nature's natural conservative behavior and nature's need for
innovation are stretched. More and more remarkable events begin
to occur, both in private and mass experience, in physical and
mental behavior, in the events, say, of both stars and man.
People want, then, to throw aside old structures of belief. They
yearn, often without recognizing it, for the remembered knowledge
of early childhood, when it seems that they experienced for a time
a dimension of experience in which the unexpected was taken for
granted, when magical events occurred quite naturally. They begin
to look at the structure of their lives in a different fashion,
that attempts to evoke from nature, and from their own natures,
some graceful effortlessness, some freedom nearly forgotten.

Seth Our bodies allow the Universe to operate...
"The physical body is a camouflage pattern operating
in a larger camouflage pattern.
But the body and all camouflage patterns are also
transformers of the vital inner stuff of the universe,
enabling it to operate under new and various conditions."
The Early Sessions, Session 20
Seth An economic storm...
"The people of a nation can at any given moment decide to
activate or experience a particular event almost entirely
in the physical realm, or to separate its elements in such
a way that half of it is experienced physically and the
other half in dream reality.
Transformations of energy occur of course constantly, so
that, say, a probable physical storm can instead appear
as an economic one."

Seth: on gliding from wakefulness to sleep
You usually glide from wakefulness through to sleep without
ever noticing the various conditions of consciousness through
which you pass, yet there are several. First, of course, with
various degrees of spontaneity, there is the inward turn of
consciousness away from physical data, from worries and
concerns of the day. Then there is an undifferentiated level
between wakefulness and sleep where you act as a receiver --
passive but open, in which telepathic and clairvoyant messages
come to you quite easily.

Seth Quote: Genuine self-pride
Genuine self-pride is the loving recognition of your own
integrity and value.
True humility is based upon this affectionate regard for
yourself, plus the recognition that you live in a universe
in which all other beings also possess this undeniable
individuality and self-worth.
False humility tells you that you are nothing. It often
hides a distorted, puffed-up, denied self-pride, because
no man or woman can really accept a theory that denies
