The book is about meta-physics in the truest sense of the world - above physics. Unlike religion, which presents a set a dogmatic beliefs, this book presents non-judgemental information.The approach is "try it; if it makes sense to you, use it."
Some of the insights have to do with how we shape our own reality. Seth teaches us that we always have a choice about what is happening in our lives, and provides insights as to why seemlingly bad things may be happening. In all cases, these things have to do with something that we have chosen. Its not about karma, or retribution, or atonement. Its more about creating the kind of life you want to have for yourself. Once you realize the mechanics of things and how the universe works, you can shape your life to better suit you.
This is what I mean by meta-physics. This book is almost a "how to guide" of the universe. Once you know what the mechanisms are, you have a much better time understanding how to use them.
I don't mean to say that this is simple. The lessons are often complex and difficult to make sense of. Part of that has to with the notion that the way in which our earthly thought process works only captures a very small part of what the universe is all about. Our brains don't always "get it." But the good news is that our "souls" do.
I can honestly say my life was dramatically improved by this and the other Jan Roberts books. They take a lot of work - you have to be willing to let go of lots of concepts you've spent your whole life building. But if you do, the world starts making a whole lot more sense. What more can one ask of a book?
You can literally turn to any random page and learn something amazing within a few minutes of reading. In fact, once you've read it for your first time, you'll almost instantly want to return into the pages for another magical moment, and you'll smile as you spot it occasionally on your bookshelf.
I read this book with some serious doubts for the first time when I was 16. At 320 lbs, I was a miserable wreck, looking to food and the lonliness of my room to find meaning in life. I read this book along with some other psychology texts, thinking my understanding of the world would benefit from getting a psych degree in college. But after reading this, and discussing the topics with my mentor at the time, I realized that I was indeed in control of my own destiny.
I started on a diet and exercise, determined to lose weight and improve myself. This quest lasted 9 months. I could taste the finish line as I ran five miles every day. Even when it was pouring snow, went back home, put on cleats, then returned to running again. My mother actually made fun of my "wet running suit" I'd wear on days that it rained - yes I was that dedicated. At 170 lbs, I began working out with weights and slowed down the running. Looking much better, feeling so much more confident, I had done the exercises in this book every night and kept a journal.
I still have those journals, and occasionally read through them to see just how powerful the inspirational pages are in this awesome book. It totally, completely, and absolutely changed my life in every way possible. The funniest part is, you see the same theme over and over - in Tony Robbins books, in "pickup artist" texts such as David DeAngelo. Everyone has come to the same conclusion that Jane Roberts wrote down years and years and years ago.
You do indeed create your own reality.
People can be funny about the "Seth books." I recommend them all, and "The Nature of Personal Reality" in particular. Yet I also realize that some people aren't quite ready for Seth. That's okay. Many of the concepts will seem so radical, so revolutionary, that they can be a bit much to take at first. The more you read Seth, the more you understand. And the beauty of this book is that it has almost become the "Bible" for the whole New Age movement. In fact, after you read it through once, do what I do. Take the book down from the shelf, open it at random, and start reading. Almost always you will discover that the passage you chance upon has some personal meaning to you. This is the secret to really getting the most out of "The Nature of Personal Reality."
In terms of the source of the material, I believe that it was indeed a book of "inspired" wisdom. The Book of Psalms was highly inspired, also, at least in some of the songs, and I wouldn't let that knowledge prevent me from appreciating the beauty and wisdom. In fact, I am thankful that an individual of "advanced" development gave us a guidebook for making good lives for ourselves.
I also deeply appreciate the late Jane Roberts and her husband Robert Butts for being open and doing the work to make this book happen.
However, I think the effort was somewhat hampered by Rob's notes throughout. I understand how overwhelming it would be to have an entity of Seth's magnitude visiting weekly to deliver his next piece of the text, but still, how the book was inspired and written is not the point.
Overall, I rate The Nature of Personal Reality as the most important book of its genre in the Twentieth Century.
