Selected quotes from
"The Nature of the Psyche"

by Jane Roberts

Amber Allen © 1995, Softcover


"Though caught up in a life of seeming frustration, obsessed with family problems, uneasy in sickness, defeated it seems for all practical purposes, some portion of each individual rouses against all disasters, all discouragements, and now and then at least glimpses a sense of enduring validity that cannot be denied. It is to that knowing portion of each individual that I address myself. I am not, on the one hand, an easy author to deal with, because I speak from a different level of consciousness than the one with which you are familiar. On the other hand, my voice is as natural as oak leaves blowing in the wind, for I speak from a level of awareness that is as native to your psyche as now the seasons seem to be to your soul."
Session 752, Page 4

"...for each of your experiences, however minute or seemingly insignificant becomes, part of the knowledge of your species."
Session 752, Page 4

"You live in one particular area on the face of your planet, and you can only see so much of it at any given time - yet take it for granted that the ocean exists even when you cannot feel its spray, or see the tides. And even if you live in a desert, you take it on faith that there are indeed great cultivated fields and torrents of rain. It is true that some of your faith is based on knowledge. Others have traveled where you have not, and television provides you with images. Despite this, however, your senses present you with only a picture of your immediate environment, unless they are cultivated in certain particular manners that are relatively unusual."
Session 752, Page 6

"you presently live in one small area of the psyche’s inner planet"
Session 752, Page 6

"Consciousness forms symbols. It is not the other way around."
Session 753, Page 9

"If you mistake the symbols for the reality, however, you will program your experience, and you will insist that each forest look like the pictures in your book. In other words, you will expect your own experiences with various portions of your psyche to be more or less the same."
Session 753, Page 9

"It is futile to question: What is the difference between my psyche and my soul, my entity and my greater being? for all of these are terms used in an effort to express the greater portions of your own experience that you sense within yourself."
Session 755, Page 13

"As he looks closer, he discovers there is a still-greater masterpiece in which he appears as an artist creating the very same paintings that he begins to recognize. Our artist then realizes that all of the people he painted are also painting their own pictures, and moving about in their own realities in a way that even he cannot perceive. In a flash of insight it occurs to him that he also has been painted -- that there is another artist behind him from whom his own creativity springs, and he also beings to look out of the frame."
Session 755, Page 13

"...because my primary focus is in a reality that is larger than your own, I cannot appear as myself fully within your reference."
Session 755, Page 14

"Seth Two’s reality includes my own, yet I am aware of my contribution to his experience."
Session 755, Page 15
