Just started re-reading that book. I have all the Seth books, also re-reading ‘Unknown Reality’, so helpful about time and parallel lives. I am just reading the third book of the trilogy now and wish it would go on forever.
I have read so many Seth books but not enough of Jane Roberts. I can’t believe I never read this before and it would make such an utterly fantastic film.
The Oversoul Seven Trilogy – Wikipedia
She was so wonderful at visual descriptions and now there would be the skill at interpreting it technically. Can you imagine how fun? People changing form and time periods co-existing and fluctuating back and forth.
Plus I think everyone would love the completely wonderful characters in this trilogy. Robetrs was a brilliant sevn.
I had taken a break in between the 2nd and 3rd and read your latest book and enjoyed it very much. Thank you for putting it out into the world.
I have sevenn keeping a dream journal for many years but I think I need to start including bringing it into the waking hours and recording everything that pops up of interest as you suggest. I am trying to use dog walking time looking for things of interest. I often think dreamlike things happen during waking hours so Aeven am always open to symbols popping up or surprise interactions that prod me to examine myself.
I wish I had been transcribing into a searchable database as you suggest. It is not the first time you have said it!
But I do title my dreams and make follow up notes. I also re read them with an eye to see if there are any precog dreams. You have been a wonderful inspiration to me and I am so happy to see you bring up the OverSoul books on your blog. Friday, November 27, Perennial lessons of Oversoul Seven. I’m a man on Wednesday and Friday, a woman on Sunday and Thursday, and I have the rest of the time off for independent study.
Each life is lived in a different area of time to which various designations are given. As the opening of a novel, this is hard to beat as an attention-grabber.
I remember sitting forward in my seat, catching my breath, the first time Sevne read these lines in the summer offifteen years after they were written. If you don’t recognize the source, maybe it’s time for you to go find it, even if you think you don’t like didactic fiction.
The speaker on the opening page is Oversoul Seven. He is a fallible being, responsible for four very fallible humans facing different, yet interrelated, challenges in different places in time, from the Ice Fhe to a future in which most humans are “floaters” living in a plastic environment suspended above the Earth. The first lines of the novel are not a spoiler, because we soon come to understand that things are even more complex and exciting than Oversoul Seven understands at this point.
He is not some all-knowing “spirit guide” or guardian angel. Though to a certain extent he can play guide and teacher to his trans-temporal set of human charges, he is answerable to his own mentor and supervisor on a level above himself. This mysterious entity, who never stays long in any single form, is identified as Cyprus. It is hinted that Oversoul Seven, like the humans he supervises, may be one of a set of “oversouls” all related, and subject, to Cyprus.
Most certainly, Oversoul Seven is no “master”. He is a student whose classroom is the world. All his engagements with his human personalities are tests on which he is being graded. When he’s reporting to Cyprus, as he is doing in the opening scene, Oversoul Seven generally adopts the default appearance of a fourteen-year-old boy, very appropriate since in relation to higher intelligence he is a schoolboy.
When his humans perceive him, most often in dreams, they see him as a wise old man. His ability to stay present to all four of his human personalities and help out in times of crisis is impeded by his tendency to play favorites and get drawn into one of the dramas, while losing track of the other three. Thus the first great lesson we derive from the adventures of Oversoul Seven is: Our ability to gain from our teachers and communicate with the Self on higher levels will be severely limited until we understand this simple and fundamental truth.
What is happening in trikogy, B. There are constant “bleed-throughs” between one life and another life, rarely noticed by humans on the ground except in dreams that are frequently forgotten.
That is the third great lesson: The fourth great lesson, for me, is this: One of Oversoul Seven’s favorite personalities is Lydia, a feisty, chain-smoking woman writer who has set off in a well-furnished trailer, at seventy-three, for a sunset romance with her younger lover. In the first Oversoul Seven novel and in its sequel The Further Education of Oversoul Seven we follow Lydia’s journey through death and the choices she comes to make when her understanding of the soul which she wasn’t sure about in life begins to grow.
She enjoys herself, for a time, in a young and attractive body in a personal ovefsoul world she builds from her desire and imagination. When this begins to pall, she eventually agrees to be reborn as the child of a person in the family of selves that Oversoul Seven is supervising.
Her past life will be her future oversouo. By my own experience and observation, by the way, such things are entirely possible. There are profound and perennial lesson here. This is fiction, right? For one thing, it is grounded in Jane’s long engagement with the entity called Seth who dictated a series of books that – to my mind – contain one of the best working models of the multidimensional self.
Jane, a brilliant original thinker and writer as well as a gifted psychic medium, shows here that she knows how to bring ideas to vivid life, in many voices. Then again, when I consider genres, I remember a young boy who was once robrts line ahead of me for a library sale. His mother asked him if he knew the difference roerts fiction and nonfiction. This was his response: For me, the idea of reincarnation in a “previous” time is entirely plausible.
The Oversoul Seven Trilogy
But don’t let’s just sit on the sidelines discussing these things. Like Jane Roberts’ “Seth” books, the Oversoul Seven novels are an incitement to gather first-hand knowledge of these matters by dreaming on them.
