This book by Jane Roberts (JR, American poet, author, psychic; 1929-1984) was written 1966/7 (before most of the Seth books) but published 1986. It's about lucid dreams - where the dreamer's conscious of dreaming - and JR's exploration of out-of-body experiences (the word “projection” referring to consciousness going beyond normal experience); there are lengthy quotations from Seth.

It has a domestic flavour as JR refers often to her husband (Robert Butts, artist; 1919-2008) and day-to-day events in and around their home in Elmira NY State. It's probably best read after one's acquired some knowledge of Seth who, “an energy personality essence”, channeled through JR. E.g., read “Seth Speaks” or “The Unknown Reality”; JR and Seth are the creme-de-la-creme of channeled sources.

The quotes from Seth are consciousness-expanding, e.g., the final chapter (“The Inside of Consciousness”) contains a hugely impressive sketch of how consciousness operates, how different realities have different root assumptions (governing premises of different existence-systems), and how consciousness can access other realities e.g., in dreams. Seth also mentions e.g., that: all boundaries (between realities) are for practical purposes only; that entities create stages on which to act out problems (all the world's a stage); that “all versions of an event are actualised”; and every moment in time is a door into other dimensions of actuality.

And what's the advantage of struggling to develop one's dreaming? Well it's to expand awareness and one's capabilities, and to learn about what is.

You need to have read other books in the Seth series for this book to have any meaning. It gathers together previously unpublished material from the early days of the work done together by Jane Roberts and her husband Robert Butts. As I've been returning to the Seth books again and again over the years, I found this book fascinating and deep, as well as a poignant memoir by the grieving Robett Butts after Jane Roberts' death.

A very special book...... though written a while back really pertains to the present.

Bit hard to get through if you are not really into reading. Quite small lettertype too. I am still struggling through it......But context good...just a bit longwinded.
