9780133575170: The God of Jane: A Psychic Manifesto

. . . The God of Jane, the God of Joe, the God of Lester, the God of Sarah . . . An appeal to that "God" would be an appeal to that portion of universal creativity from which we personally emerge . . . It would stand for that otherwise inconceivable intersection between Being and our being . . .(from chapter 7)

In The God of Jane, the most personal of her books, Jane Roberts bravely questions the very material she produced (the many volumes of Seth material) as well as her own psychic abilities. "This book," she writes, "is the story of my efforts to put Seth's material to work in daily life; to free myself from many hampering cultural beliefs; and most of all, to encounter and understand the nature of impulses . . ."

What Roberts discovers is her individual connection to the larger consciousness-or "God."

With a new introduction by Susan M. Watkins, author of Conversations with Seth.

About the Author:

Jane Roberts (1929-1984), author of the Seth material, is considered one of the most important psychics of the twentieth century. From 1963 through 1984 she spoke for Seth, who described himself as an "energy personality essence no longer focused in physical reality." In addition to nine books by Seth she also wrote fourteen books of her own. The Jane Roberts/Seth material, which includes many volumes of unpublished material, is housed at the Yale University Archives and is consistently one of the top two most visited collections in the archives.

Because of her contribution to the study of consciousness, Moment Point Press has dedicated its Classics in Consciousness series to Jane Roberts. In addition to The God of Jane, look for new editions of Roberts's Adventures in Consciousness and Psychic Politics.

Review:

Equally distrustful of ancient religious pieties and the cant of modern scientism, Jane Roberts passionately forges a distinctively American and democratic path of spirituality that places the uniqueness of the individual at the center of his or her own universe. Feisty and invigorating, yet deeply personal and self-revealing, this book gives us an unparalleled glimpse of the inner life and thought of one of the most significant and enduring voices of twentieth-century spirituality. -- Kenneth Ring, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Connecticut and author of Lessons from the Light and Heading Toward Omega

Jane Roberts possessed a combination of psychic talent and intellectual curiosity that contributed enormously to our understanding of human consciousness. -- Norman Friedman, author of Bridging Science and Spirit and The Hidden Domain

Of all Jane's books, The God of Jane is the one in which she most reveals herself, and her uncertainty concerning Seth's ideas about reality and our physical lives. We can learn much from her personal struggles as she questions and incorporates Seth's theories into her own life. -- Lynda Madden Dahl, award-winning author of Beyond the Winning Streak and Ten Thousand Whispers
