The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events
Jane Roberts

1 "You are biologically and psychologically predisposed to grow within this rich environment, to contribute on all levels to the fulfillment of your species – but more than this, to add your own unique viewpoint and experience to the greater patterns of consciousness of which you are a part."

2 "Information concerning the entire universe is always latent within each and any part of it."

3 "Myths are natural phenomena, rising from the psyche as surely as giant mountain ranges emerge from the physical planet. Their deeper reality exists as source material for the world that we know."

4 "All That Is is within you, God is within creation, within physical matter."

5 "In a way, the world is like a multidimensional, exotic plant growing in space and time, each thought, dream, imaginative encounter, hope or fear, growing naturally into its own bloom – a plant of incredible variety, never for a moment the same, in which each smallest root, leaf, stem or flower has a part to play and is connected with the whole."

6 "When you fulfill your own abilities, when you express your personal idealism through acting it out to the best of your ability in your daily life, then you ARE changing the world for the better."

7 "On any given day, the events of our private lives fit within the larger pattern of world events, in which they have their context. On any given night the intimate events of our dream lives also exist in the greater context of the world's dreams, in which they have their reality."

8 "What difference can it make to the world if you are a better salesperson, or plumber, or office worker, or car salesman? What can one person do? That is precisely where first of all you must begin to exert yourselves. There, on your jobs and in your associations, are the places where you intersect with the world. Your impulses directly affect the world in those relationships."

9 "Religion is an activity through which man attempts to see the meaning of his life. It is a construction based on deep psychic knowledge. No matter what name it might go by, it represents man's connection with the universe."

10 "You instantly color physical experience and nature itself with the tints of your unique imaginative processes."

11 "Your thoughts, feelings and expectations are like the living brush strokes with which you paint life's landscape. If you do your best in your own life, then you are indeed helping improve the quality of all life. Your thoughts are as real as snowflakes or raindrops or clouds. They mix and merge with the thoughts of others, to form man's livingscape, providing the vast mental elements from which physical events will be formed."

12 "There is an inner environment that connects all consciousnesses that dwell upon the planet, in whatever form."

13 "In each person the imaginative world, its force and power, merges into historical reality. In each person, the ultimate and unassailable and unquenchable power of All That Is is individualized and dwells in time."

14 "You have an inner system of communication in which the cells of all living things are connected….there is a continuum of consciousness."

15 "Behind all lies a biological and psychic cooperative venture."

16 "Each individual is innately aware that help is available in every situation, and that information does not need to come through the physical senses alone."

17 "Myth is not a distortion of fact, but the womb through which fact must come. Myth involves an intrinsic understanding of the nature of reality, couched in imaginative terms, carrying a power as strong as nature itself. Myth-making is a natural psychic characteristic."

18 "The world is the result of a multidimensional creative venture, a work of art in which each person and creature, and each particle, plays a living part."

19 "Death is not an end, but a transformation of consciousness. Nature, with its changing seasons, constantly brings you that message. In that light, and with that understanding, nature's disasters do not claim victims: Nature and man together act out their necessary parts in the larger framework of reality."

20 "Each person is fired by the desire to act, and to act beneficially, altruistically, to practically put his stamp, or her stamp, upon the world."

21 "The universe is of good intent. It is automatically predisposed toward the creation of good events."

22 "Christ's message was that each man is good inherently, and is an individualized portion of the divine."

23 "You were born with an in-built recognition of your own goodness. You were born with an inner recognition of your rightness in the universe…You are born loving. You are born compassionate….You are born seeking to add value to the quality of life, to add characteristics, energies, abilities to life that only you can individually contribute to the world, and to attain a state of being that is uniquely yours, while adding to the value fulfillment of the world."

24 "Each individual's dreams and thoughts interweave with every other person's."

25 "The psyche expresses itself through action, of course, but it carries behind it the thrust from which life springs, and it seeks the fulfillment of the individual – and it automatically attempts to produce a social climate or civilization that is productive and creative. It projects its desires outward onto the physical world, seeking through private experience and social contact to actualize its potentials, and in such a way that the potentials of others are also encouraged."
