HJ: The illusion teaches us to blame circumstances, events, situations, etc. on forces outside ourselves. We are absolved of all complicity in the creation of reality. We are told that we are at the behest of an indifferent, harsh universe and we must learn to survive as best we can. We are taught that what cannot be perceived by the five senses does not exist. And we believe it. Therein lies the illusion. Know this: our beliefs determine our outward and inward reality and nothing else. Therefore if we believe the illusion, then it is indeed our reality. We feed it and it becomes even stronger and more convincing. Until we realize that our beliefs and nothing else dictate our reality, then we will remain under the hypnotic spell of the illusion. Understanding this concept is a critical step on the path towards self realization and so, if you desire true freedom, then you will seek to understand and know this truth at the deepest levels of your being. In fact, you already do. You only need remember it. In that vein, may this message from Seth kindle your soul memory and help you along your journey towards greater understanding and truth.

“Your beliefs form reality. Your individual beliefs and your joint beliefs. Now the intensity of a belief is extremely important…
And, if you believe, in very simple terms, that people mean you well, and will treat you kindly, they will. And, if you believe that the world is against you, then so it will be in your experience. And, if you believe…IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL BEGIN TO DETERIORATE AT 22, then so you shall.
And, if you believe that you are poor, and always will be, then so your experience will so prove to you. Your beliefs meet you in the face when you look in the mirror. They form your image. You cannot escape your beliefs. They are, however, the method by which you create your experience.
It is important that you here realize that you are not at the mercy of the unexplainable, that you are not at the mercy of events over which you have no control whether those events are psychological events or physical ones, in your terms.
As I have told you, there is little difference if you believe that your present life is caused by incidents in your early infancy or by past lives over which equally you feel you have no control. Your events, your lives, your experiences, are caused by your present beliefs. Change the beliefs and your life changes.” – Seth
