5.0 out of 5 stars A penetrating view of group thinking 23 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
At last, Seth gets specific about our current events and talks about the distored realities that led up to events like Jonestown and the Watergate affair. His discussion of the dividing line between idealists and fanatics is most fascinating and might make you rethink our nation's military policy. The themes that run through all of his books, that humans are of good intent, and that we create our own reality, are repeated here again, of course, but each book brings a new light to bear on those very basic and important messages. Read this book if you are concerned about, and involved with any kind of group, from your family to an international movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Individual Component of Mass Events 18 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
It's important to realize that this book is as much about the individual and the power of the individual to control (or partake in chosen) events in immediate surroundings as it is an offering of insight into the nature of "mass events." As usual, Seth points to the power of the individual in the context of the individual's deep connection to "all that is." The revelation that we are not powerless in a world gone berserk (from a subjective perspective) is comforting and downright empowering. This is evolved thought at its best. All that is left to the reader is to experiment with vigor the value system presented. In my mind, this book taken as a whole, was one of the best presentations of the Seth ideas. Read it, practice it's teachings and change your life for the better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does he ever stop? 22 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
Please dont misundserstand me ,I LOVE the Seth books, but I have found it increasing difficult to pick one up and read it without feeling angrier and angrier at Robert Butts for his incessant and inane "Notes". They completely spoil what would otherwise be in my opinion a set of very profound,important and enlightening works.
In this particular book he takes it to a new level...
I am extremely grtaeful for all his hard work in taking down the sessions and writing them up to be ready for hardcopy,BUT, does he really have to tell us every time the cat farts or when a car goes past the window???
I just wish you could obtain copies of these books without the monotonous garbage that he seems to think is as important and relevant as Seth's work is.
Having said all that this book is as good as all previous works by Jane/Seth.
Next time you contact someone to channel Seth ,can you please pick someone without a husband that has inferiority complexes?

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening, insightful and provocative. 20 Mar 2001
By D. Sinclair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"You create your own reality".
This is the central message of the Seth material. Far from being the helpless victims of circumstances that have been thrust upon us, we are the masters of our own destiny, even though most of us are unaware of it. But if we all create our individual realities, how come that there are events that influence a great number of people simultaneously, like elections, natural disasters or epidemics? How could one possibly believe, for example, that the 6 million jews who died in the holocaust all individually chose that fate for themselves?
It is at the intersection of individual and mass reality where Seth's message indeed appears to fail the reality check. Not so, according to Seth, but it takes a whole book to explain why. 'The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events' carefully elaborates how the individual and the collective consciousness work together in a grandiose balancing act to create a shared reality that serves all the invididual development needs, simultaneously. Seth illustrates his points by discussing some of the great mass events of the time, such as Watergate or Three Mile Island. Of particularly significance in this context is Seth's statement that public health announcements and prevention programs, by their suggestive nature, create more instances of the diseases than they prevent!
'The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events' represents a cornerstone of the Seth material, as it reconciles Seth's principal message with our common sense perception of reality. It helps the reader to make sense of seemingly senseless events, and it shows how each of us, individually, can make a difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars New to Seth? This book may perplex. 14 Oct 2001
By Joseph B. Mullen, Psychic Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Don't get me wrong. All the Seth books by Jane Roberts are worthwhile. And given recent global events, this book is more timely than ever. So I highly recommend that at some point you purchase this book so that you can read and reread it many times over. You should definitely aim to have all the Seth books as part of your personal library. I surely do. And I can pick a Seth book at random, turn to any page, and come away with a fresh insight. But if you are not sure who or what Seth is? Then this book may only confuse and perplex you. If you are new to Seth, I highly recommend that you start with "The Coming of Seth," followed by "The Seth Material," and then the must-have-Seth-book-of-all-time, "The Nature of Personal Reality." Then you will most surely want to read "The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events." My only complaint about this book? The "current" events referred to in this book may seem like ancient history to some. Oh, how I wish Ms. Roberts were alive today for Seth to comment upon such things as the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the more recent terrorist attacks. But indirectly, this book will help you come to terms with all these events and more. So in this respect, it is more important now than ever before. And one of the reasons that I include it on my list of "Timely Tomes for Troubled Times."

5.0 out of 5 stars Monumental contribution to anyone interested in spiritual growth 19 Dec 2012
By Bo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After "Seth Speaks," second on a must read list of Jane Roberts books. The contributions of Jane Roberts to the spiritual growth of mankind will grow with time. Seth, a spiritual energy being who in "Seth Speak"s admitted that in one of his many reincarnations he was a Pope proposes a concept of Frameworks to make us understand the connection between our many levels of consciousness. He teaches us how to withhold judgment and focus on the present in order to live a better life. Most people who read the first book, could not put it away. Enjoy the reading. It will help you be a better person.
