“You cannot separate yourselves from others or from your world… [B]y being yourself completely, you are automatically doing what you yourself want to do: fulfilling the purpose that is your own, and joining with others of like purpose. And you become therefore a force of nature, and in trusting that force that is yourself, you flow naturally into those areas of your own interest and the interests of others.”
“It is not the time to set up new rules or regulations or even loving dogmas. In your terms you have been through that before. Each of you, in your own way, will creatively do your thing [with what you are presented in your lives], and that is good.”
I love that in these two quotes Seth is advocating that we are all part of the collective of humanity, that our humanity is what unites us, so there is no need to set up cults or religions or factions, or any group pertaining to certain beliefs in order for us to be who we truly are, and for us to live our lives to the fullest and most creative potential, whatever that may mean for every individual. Isn’t that the idea of human rights?
However human rights, and the right to be ourselves as we are begins with us as individuals and ends with us as individuals. It is magnificently simple and the motivation of which is powered by thought alone. A decision to do something different, however small an action that is can make huge changes in a more positive direction. A thought alone can change lives, because what follows thought is action. Whether it is obvious or not.
It’s not some great magic trick, it’s what happens all the time in life everywhere you look. Things do not change by themselves, it is usually one idea had by one person that leads the charge. One person that has the ability to think, as do we all. We either change things or we perpetuate things by what we choose to believe, in simplistic terms. By taking charge of your own choices, by being the person to make change, then you take responsibility for yourselves. You change history as you think, write, speak, do; none of us can help it.
And if you’re reading these words, then like me you need to be reminded of that.
