Seth and the end of the Mayan Calendar

 In reading The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, which was delivered in 1979 and published in 1981, I find this at the end of Chapter One, which might have been written this morning:

   The majority of accepted beliefs – religious, scientific, and cultural – have tended to stress a sense of powerlessness, impotence, and impending doom – a picture in which man and his world is an accidental production with little meaning, isolated yet seemingly ruled by a capricious God. Life is seen as a “valley of tears” – almost as a low-grade infection from which the soul can be cured only by death.

   Religious, scientific, medical, and cultural communications stress the existence of danger, minimize the purpose of the species or of any individual member of it, or see mankind as the one erratic half-insane member of an otherwise orderly realm of nature. Any or all of the above beliefs are held by various systems of thought.

One thought on “Seth and the end of the Mayan Calendar

  1. The Seth Books will be among the favourites of mine(besides yours of course Frank). I have almost all of them, and from time-to-time picking the books up to re-read.
    Some time ago was recommended by a friend of to read a book titled: The Open Door, by Theon Wright. In the book is it “letters” channeled by a family who lived in the first part of the 19th century.
    Peculiar enough is it much of the same as in the seth books.
    Charles(your old friend Charles)and I, agree in of the book will be very “special” indeed.
    The one of I have bought through amazon.com.bookstore, is a used pocketbook printed in 1970.
