This quote, from the Seth material channeled through Jane Roberts back in 1970, recently caught my eye.
Almost half a century later,so many more of us are accepting of the notion that we are indeed eternal consciousness manifest in physical form, for just the blink of an eye. We incarnate many, many times, and each incarnation assists us in our spiritual evolution.
To me, the message is that anything manifest in form is temporary, for its true nature is consciousness (spirit). There is a need to accept the impermanence of anything in form while learning (remembering) the art of manifestation for spiritual growth.
